This wonderful church has the friendliest people I ever have met. One church member mows and weeds my lawn for free, and he is 91 years old. Once couple, Jim and Mabel, have been married for 72 years, and Mabel's banana bread is the best anywhere. We also have a terrific bread baker, Amber, and a youth group led by sweet, strong Cassie. Our youth group went to Florida to the beach this year, after raising the money themselves. Haley Johnson inspires us all, and our deacons guide with kindness. We are powerful prayer warriors. The Ballews, the Autreys, the Harrises, oh so many good families, with deep roots in these mountains, work together to make everyone welcome. If you are looking for a church home in Burnsville, you can find no better place than South Estatoe Baptist Church. Patsy Harrison introduced me, and she did a good thing there for sure.
