August 19 and 26 are laity Sundays at LaBelle Assembly of God

Each year Pastor Avery and Kathy step down from the platform and let the women and men of the church step-up and share the Word of God in their individual ways from their life expectancies: Certified Public Accountant, Public School teacher, a City commissioner or a retired Hendry county Code enforcement, and finance officer.

This year we have a tag-team of David Miller and Tammy Perkins alternating between the two morning services at 9:45 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. Kathy Avery will be leading all Sunday morning worship music in absentia.

David Miller is a Certified Public Accountant with offices in LaBelle and Clewiston He brings balance to the pulpit. He says, “As I reflect back I realize that the time away from God served to ultimately strengthen my faith and humble me to the realization that I need God everyday. I often wonder how I would have found the Lord if I had not grown up in a Christian home. I worry about the children who do not have Christian leadership during their early years.” David will be sharing the 9:45 and 11:00 a.m. worship services Sunday August 19 and 26.

Tammy earned her A. A. degree at Florida South Western State College and her state of Florida teachers certificate from Barry University along with her B.A. degree. Her Friends and co-workers describe her as very kind hearted, compassionate, loving person that loves God. Miss Perkins’ has been a Hendry County teacher for LaBelle Middle school in the sixth grade. Tammy will be sharing on the 19 in the 9:45 a.m. service “Longing for the Fullness of God” Matthew 5:6. And the 26 at 11:00 a.m. “God Call You” Ephesians Chapter 4.

Julie Wilkins, wears many hats here in LaBelle: City Commissioner, Church Board member, wife, mother and realtor just to name a few of the positions she daily fits into her schedule. Julie will be seeing that everything runs smoothly.
