a great place to belong.......
1 Thessalonians 5:11
Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.
We are the Faithful Encouragers
doing what we can
To help and encourage
our fellow man.
To let them know God loves them
as He shows us every day
They may be feeling down
but we encourage them to keep in God's way.
We're always ready to help them
with our prayers and helping hands.
Reminding them of God's goodness
as we follow his command.
We do love the fellowship of
our Christian sister and brother
and the encouragement we do give and receive from each other.
By Maude Solomon
Welcome to Faithful Encouragers
Ann Glover, Seniors Ministry Director
Huntsville, Alabama, is the hometown of Ann Glover. She is the ninth of eleven children born to a Southern Baptist preacher and an elementary school teacher. It was the influence and example of her parents that had a major impact in developing Ann’s love for the Lord and love for learning. Ann accepted Jesus Christ as her personal Savior at the age of seven. She was baptized by her father, Rev. Elmon Brown. At that time, her father was pastor at Second Baptist Church in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
Ann is not only our Church Secretary, she is also a sister of our Senior Pastor, Bro. Tim Brown. Ann laughs and says that she is the only one in the congregation that knows the farfetched stories that Bro. Tim tells about growing up in their family really is the truth!
Ann has been married to her high school sweetheart, Gary Glover, for 41 years. During Gary’s career with Service Master, the Glover family enjoyed seeing the United States by living in eight different states. They were blessed with two children, David (deceased 4/7/99) and Carole. Carole is married to their favorite (even if he is their only) son-in-law, Eric. Gary and Ann are also blessed with two fabulous grandchildren, Anna Grace and Christian.
It has been Ann’s privilege to serve in many capacities in churches for many years. She is excited about this new season of ministry with the Faithful Encouragers and looking forward to what the Lord has in store in the months ahead!
“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28
The Faithful Encouragers...Who are we?
Webster’s Dictionary defines the word encourage as a verb meaning “to inspire with courage or hope.” That sums up what our group is all about. We are a group of “classic” encouragers, in the prime time of our lives, who meet for fun and fellowship. We love the LORD and each other.
We meet once per month and usually on the third Tuesday of the month. When we come together, there is no telling what will happen! We enjoyed a variety of outings last year, including traveling to Fayetteville, TN, to Marvin’s Family Restaurant for a specially priced senior buffet. We also enjoyed a wonderful outing to the Bell Buckle Café in Bell Buckle, TN. With our group, the travel time is more than half the fun! It’s amazing the things we have learned about each other!
If you’re looking for a wonderful, warm group of folks who will love you and encourage you, we’re IT! The good news is that you don’t even have to be a senior citizen to join us. We invite you to stay tuned to our website to keep up with our outings. We are the Faithful Encouragers, (A.K.A. “Cowan Classic Go-Getters.) Come join us!
“Two are better than one because they have a good reward for their labor, for if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow;
but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.” Ecclesiastes 4:9-10.
