OKLAHOMA Okla. (BP) -- Demonstrating that no one is too old to learn, Portland Avenue Baptist Church hosted a senior adult version of Vacation Bible School (VBS), July 9-12. By midweek, the church had nearly 20 seniors saying, as the VBS song goes, "Y-E-S to VBS."
NASHVILLE (BP) -- When evangelist Phil Waldrep agreed to preach a revival at a nursing home, he didn't expect a huge response. But of the 40-60 nursing home residents who attended the services, 21 made a profession of faith in Christ, and about 10 were later baptized at a local church.
