PLEASANT HILL RAMBLINGS: Old church made new again in Pleasant Hill
“All things old will be new again.” The biblical promise is certainly being fulfilled in the Pleasant Hill Baptist Mission, which is a new church plant by the Lantana Road Baptist Church (LRBC) of Crossville. Adam Strayer, church start minister, and several members of LRBC had been in prayer and discussion since January, seeking a calling opportunity for a new church plant in Cumberland County. Some of the remaining members of the First Baptist Church of Pleasant Hill contacted LRBC about that time seeking help in keeping their church alive.

A passion for purple plants
A common mistake in landscape design is thinking flowers should be the sole color element. Attractive foliage is a better foundation to build upon.
