Tremayne Parker, known as Parker, confessed that Jesus is Lord and was baptized on October 8. Parker is an Alabama native from the town of Union Springs. He works as a correctional officer for the Bullock County Prison. A year ago, Parker met Markeya Thomas through mutual friends at a birthday party, and she invited him to church. He wanted to be a better person and to find a group of friends who lived an honest life. He found this in the brothers at the Auburn Tuskegee Christian Church (ATCC). One of them, Travis Hawkins, asked him to study the Bible. Travis shared not only the good news, but also his life.
"I was inspired by Parker's humility and his desire to take on challenges for God," said Travis. Parker continued to take on the challenges of obeying the Bible, right up to the challenge of being baptized. "Parker has grown tremendously since the first time meeting the ATCC family," said Markeya. "He's gone from barely saying a word to being a lot more engaged." Parker is now excited to become even more engaged, and share the good news with others in Alabama!

Our hearts are breaking in light of Sunday night's tragedy here in Las Vegas. While some of our members were at the music festival or at work near the site of the incident, we are grateful that no one in the Las Vegas church family was injured. However, many are affected as their friends and colleagues were caught in the shooting and some have even lost their lives.

We are still trying to assess the damage of the storm, but so far, the report is good. With all thirteen of our churches checked in, it looks like all brothers and sisters are safe, though some have had damage to their homes and most are without power.
Currently disciples across Florida are preparing for the worst from Hurricane Irma which is nearly the size of Texas. At the moment Irma is bearing down on the Southwest Church in Ft. Myers/Naples area, then the Sarasota church, then the Tampa Church. The Gainesville Church, the 1200 Church in Tallahassee, Crossway in Tallahassee, South Lake and the Orlando Church should all feel the effects of rain and tropical force winds. The South Florida Church is also experience rain and tropical force winds with gusts up to 100 mph. Needless to say the vast majority of our churches will feel it and three are currently in the direct path. And this could all change with the unpredictable nature of these storms.
