Thank You
  • Thank you to everyone that helped out or attended our Operation Christmas Child Full Circle Speaker event on Saturday, July 29th. Debbie assisted with the logistics, Brian and Team for decorations in the foyer, Matt handled the church Facebook page and media, Cory ran the sound board, Tim kicked off the event, David and the Worship team set the spiritual stage, Missionary Unit #7 provided another excellent meal and 127 truly blessed people were in attendance. Thanks to all! We couldn’t have done it without you. The Sullivan FCC OCC Team


  • I would like to personally thank the Sullivan FCC OCC Team for all the hard work to make our Full Circle Speaker Event a success. I believe because of your efforts God was glorified and OCC Ministry was advanced. So to Missy & John, Jennie, Val & Jasmine and Cindy, thank you so much!! Jeff Coats


  • David and I celebrated our 58th Anniversary in ICU at Regional. At 7:15pm I thanked our Lord for his still being with me. Now I want to thank all of you who prayed. Plus Jim & Chrystal, Chris & Bonnie, Roy, our children who stayed with me and made late night trips, our grandson Bradley and my Sis Karen who stayed with me. All of you held me up when I needed you. You were servants of our Father. May HE bless you always! We also give thanks for the skill and dedication of his doctors and nurses. Nancy Holmes — David too


  • We would like to express our heartfelt thanks to the folks of Sullivan FCC for their expression of love and support of us and our ministry to the men and women in our prison system. This love and support was demonstrated by the wonderful turnout we had at last Sunday’s delicious chicken and noodle luncheon in the fellowship hall. A very special thanks goes out to Missionary Units 7, 6 and 1 for providing the delicious food. If you’d like to keep up with the ministry, you can follow us on our Revival In Prison Ministry Facebook page. We pray God’s blessings on each and every one of you. In His Service, David & Debbie Brewer

Also, thank you for allowing us to use your facility for this event. We look forward to being able to provide this event again in 2018 and hope you will consider partnering with us again next year.
