Fund-raiser a success
"If one part suffers, every part suffers with it " The church family at Kachemak Bay Christian Center would like to thank all those who showed their support of Pastor Bryan Lowe.

Pastor Bryan was diagnosed with a brain tumor and had an operation July 22. Thankfully, it is not malignant and he is on the road to recovery. Yet, the Lowe family is incurring medical expenses that will be very difficult for them to meet. In response, the churches of Homer held a spaghetti feed.

Of the churches in Homer, we would like to thank Homer United Methodist Church, which not only donated the use of their fellowship hall for the feed and participated in the feed, but gave a generous donation as well; The Refuge, which helped out in the kitchen and joined in the feed; East Gate; Church of the Nazarene; Homer Assembly of God and Homer Community Church. Thank you for the love and support you have given to us at KBCC. We know that all those who are aware of our pastor's situation are agreeing with us in prayer for his quick recovery.

Seeing the church rally around fellow believers is a true inspiration. It is good to know that we at KBCC are not standing alone as our pastor endures these difficulties, but that your love and your prayers are supporting them and us. The spaghetti feed was a real success and raised a nice sum to help the Lowe family meet some of their medical expenses. Conley Croom, youth minister, Kachemak Bay Christian Center
