ELBA, Ala (BNc) — The Elba Church of Christ hosted their bi-annual acappella singing Friday evening, January 31, 2014. The singing is held the last Friday evening in January and in July. Men from different congregations led songs throughout the 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. allotted time. Phillip Box serves as minister of the Elba church.
Among those leading songs were Phillip Box, minister of the church, Charles Box, father of Phillip, and minister of the Walnut Street Church of Christ, Greenville, AL and Brewer Box, son of Phillip, and grandson of Charles Box. Little Brewer’s voice rang out across the auditorium as he led “Standing on the Promises,” and “Jesus Loves Me.” Brewer turned 5 years old Feb. 2. The three generation family made the singing very unique and a great example of training up children in the way they should go (Proverbs 22:6).
As a teenage girl, I prayed to marry a preacher. God answered my prayer. Douglas and I will be married 56 years on December 18. He has been preaching the gospel since before we were married. We have two children and two grandchildren all of whom are faithful members of the church. God is so good. I love Him so.
