What Andy appreciates about Poplar Springs:
The good folks at Poplar Springs are longsuffering and patient:
They listen to my old stories again and again.
They laugh at old, oft' repeated jokes.
This is a welcoming and friendly congregation that believes in loving and caring fellowship, heartfelt ministry, serious discipleship, genuine and contagious evangelism, and meaningful worship.
A great church staff and congregation … a pleasure to work with in sharing the good news.
