A major from the unit they replaced began the service at the Chapel Ministry Center (CMC), which is something of a general purpose building used for Bible studies, classes and meetings. At that time it was basically an informal Bible study around a table with about six people attending.
When the 135th arrived, the numbers grew to about 10-12. They were able to find a time slot on Sundays in Fraise Chapel.
They have managed to increase attendance each week by one or two as word about the service has spread.
On February 7, 2010, Captain Holloway reported that they had 21 in attendance.
Holloway, better known as Craig back home in Alabama, shares the preaching responsibilities with a major from their unit who is a minister in his civilian life at a church of Christ in Tennessee. If neither of them is available they have a Marine colonel who can preach as well as a SFC from the unit who is an elder in the states.
Holloway reports that there is also another church of Christ chaplain who can fill in if needed. However he mainly concentrates his efforts on another part of KAF.
Holloway supplied the picture of a group who recently gathered to worship. Captain Anthony Holloway is pictured as tallest on back row.
Editor’s Note: Anthony Craig Holloway is the son of Duncan and Mary Holloway of Geneva, Ala., and the husband of Kim Holloway, Montgomery, Ala.
