bulletin.jpg79 isn’t much.  79 cents won’t even buy a coke anymore.  79 dollars barely fills up my van with gas.  79 diapers disappear faster than we can change them around here.  A 79 page book isn’t even a good introduction.  If you score a 79 on a test all you have is a very low C.  HOWEVER, at Cottage Grove Baptist Church 79 was a ray of sunshine yesterday.   79 represented established families welcoming new faces and new families.  79 breaks a long drought in the 60’s.  79 represents wonderfully crowded Sunday School rooms.   79 people meant more pews were filled in our sanctuary.   The only thing better than 79?  80!  Numbers never tell the whole story in a church but it was so encouraging to see so many people in church yesterday.
