WEM Spa Night

Cub Scout Pack 555

Here are some images taken at the church regarding Cub Scout Pack 555….the group used our facilities.

The February 6, 2000 bulletin had the following blurb: Cub Scout Pack 555 has had a great year. We moved 4 boys to Boy Scouts last year. We have picked up 11 new Tigers, 3 new Wolves, 2 new Webelos and 4 new leaders. The pack has 36 total charter members. We have had two Stone Mountain camp outs, overnight to Atlanta Zoo, a great Webelos woods campout and almost 100 participants at our Blue and Gold celebration at Sweetwater Park. Looking forward to graduating 5 boys to Boy Scouts this year and hosting the District Pine Wood Derby in April.

The cub master during this time was Earl Williams.

McKoy is Sr. Pastor at Lithia First Baptist

The following article appeared in the Douglas County Sentinel on March 5, 2009. The text of the article states:

Pastor Kevin McKoy is now the Senior Pastor at First Baptist Church in Lithia Springs.
Pastor McKoy and his wife Christy and their two children Ryley and Camryn have been part of the church family at First Baptist, Lithia Springs since January, 2007, when he was called as Associate Pastor to Students.

Prior to First Baptist, he served as the Associate Pastor/Minister of Youth & Education in LaGrange, Georgia, and as pastor of Westside Baptist Church in Hinesville, Georgia. He served as an Army chaplain in the United States Army and the Georgia Army National Guard where he out-processed at the rank of Captain.
He was called to serve First Baptist, Lithia Springs as Senior Pastor last fall and continues to lead in this capacity, as the church reaches out to the surrounding community with the gospel of Christ.

Under Pastor McKoy’s leadership the church offers two Sunday morning worship services and a Wednesday evening Prayer Meeting.

Pastor McKoy announces that upcoming events will include an Easter celebration, and an Arts and Crafts Fair and Car Show in May, which will benefit missions, and the church’s annual Vacation Bible School, featuring “Boomerang Express,” coming June 8-12.

The McKoys live in the Canterbury Lane subdivision in the northwest part of Douglasville. Christy teaches second grade at Winston Elementary School.
