'The Bible Trumpet" was started almost fifty years ago to be a thorn in the side of compromise, dead religion, and formalism. Because of the help of God and the support of God's people, for almost a half a century the little paper has continued it's original mission.
Last month we hosted a golf tournament to raise funds for the Trumpet. We appreciate all the Pastors, Evangelists, Missionaries, and good folks who came out and made the event a success. We also want to thank Roberson Supply, Carolina Builders, Smith Chevrolet, Skippers Marina, Gwinns Siding, and Stephens Cleaners for sponsoring holes and helping us to raise funds for the Bible Trumpet. A team with two pastors on it won the tournament and everyone had a tremendous time.
On October 26, 1954 Dr. Harold Sightler and Dr. John Waters lead out in the organization of the South Carolina Baptist Fellowship at the Ottoray Hotel in Greenville, South Carolina. "The Baptist Bible Trumpet" which was started by John Waters and the Faith Baptist Church in Laurens, SC. had already been in publication for almost two years, became the official voice of the South Carolina Baptist Fellowship that next August as the small fellowship met in Aiken, South Carolina.
The intent of the fellowship was for fundamental Baptist preachers to get together for fellowship and preaching and to encourage each other to take a stand against liberalism. I have been a part of this fellowship for over 28 years and what a blessing it has been to my life.
I would like to encourage each pastor to please start attending the monthly fellowship and also consider having the fellowship at your church, even a small church can host the fellowship. I know each pastor is busy with pressure on every side, but I believe we do what we want to do and I think the monthly fellowship meeting is something we should want to do. If we don't start backing the fellowship it will fold-up.
The December fellowship meeting will be at Bro. Larry Pierson's at the Temple Baptist in Anderson. I would like for us to take some time and discuss what we can do to see the SCBF get pastors attending again.
