The speaker will be John Keith of Byesville. Born in Parkersburg, W.Va., he was raised in Nashport. He married Tina and they have a daughter, Ashley.

The public is invited to bring their Bibles to each and every service to study God's words together. Service times are 9:45 a.m. Sunday for Bible Study and 10:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. for worship services.

Monday through Thursday evening services will begin at 7 p.m.
