Though our paths cross quite frequently with MBA events, I had never actually heard Pastor Benny Berry preach. Regina, his wife, is the Financial Manager for the Madison Baptist Association, so I have dealings with her all the time and might I add that she is always very helpful.
We arrived about 10 minutes early for Sunday School and it just so happens that it was Regina who pulled up to the door at the same time. She helped us to get where we needed to go as our day began. The class was friendly and after a bit of socializing we began the lesson. The class was going through a book called Biblical Mathematics: Keys to Scripture Numerics, that deals with the importance of numbers in the Bible. It was interesting and I can't say that I had heard of the book before our visit. Once class was over one of the class members helped us to find our way to the sanctuary for the worship service.
The music was nice with the choir doing a special number and a trio doing another one. Somewhere I have heard the trio before (perhaps at a special community service); they did a great job. Regina mentioned something about her and Benny being here over 20 years...wow, what dedication!
When Brother Benny spoke with us it sounded like he had a cold but when he preached the message one could hardly tell. He is a very soft spoken man but is very strong and sure when he brings the Word. All in all it was a good visit and things seem to be going well at Bevill's Chapel.
