Corsicana — News and announcements submitted by congregations throughout Navarro County.

Westside Baptist Church, in conjunction with the Billy Graham nationwide evangelistic campaign, “My Hope America,” and along with 22,000 other churches in America, is making revival plans to reach out to unsaved neighbors and loved ones with our only true hope: the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. Over the past 12 years, the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association has organized My Hope events in 57 nations bringing millions to repentance and faith in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. Now is America’s time! Bro. James Berryhill will be bringing the timely messages. He currently serves as a missionary in Bogota, Columbia where he is involved in church planting and leadership preparation. Bro. Grady Manning, gifted soloist and member of Westside, will be the worship leader. Nightly services will be at 7 p.m. Nov. 8-10, and the Sunday service is 11 a.m., followed by a fellowship meal and then a short 30-minute video by Billy Graham, “My Hope America, The Cross.” There will be no evening service Sunday. You are invited to join us for a time of refreshment and spiritual renewal. Nursery will be provided.
