 Roy and Karen Kinney – Church Planters at Pinecrest Baptist Church in Millbury, MA

The Year 2020 is one most of us would like to forget, but we cannot neglect to see God at work in our lives even in the midst of a pandemic!

Pinecrest Baptist Church News: 

We closed on our land sale after a long wait and are settled comfortably in our “forever” church home!  God has so richly blessed us and provided and cared for us all along the way.  Thank you to our Mission, Baptist Church Planters, for their support in getting us to this point with loaned funds, grants, and our Missionary Builders Team.  Our next step as a church is graduation from Mission’s status.

We hosted Romeo Tamburro’s funeral in February just before the pandemic awareness hit.  Our Church Doors were closed for 3 months due to Covid orders, but thankfully we have been open and running on a limited schedule since.  We really enjoy being together for worship.  We even had three new community people start attending during this time.  A lot of connections were maintained through phone calls, e-mails, outside visits, and one on one Bible Studies.  We are all still learning and growing!

Wow, what started out as a family of 7 is now a growing family of 17 and counting…they all love the Lord and each one is plugged into their local churches and faithful.  Roy, Leroy, Caleb, and Kurt all work Kinney Enterprises and are a great testimony in the community for the Lord with their work.  God is good!

We continue to thank God for His love and care.  Many of you have been an example to us through your loss or hard times with Covid; yet you trust in Him!  May we be strengthened and grow closer to God and each other in the New Year!

**Please pray for Alyssa (Kinney) Rofe – She was induced last evening and delivered in the early morning. Alyssa is recovering from a rough bout with covid.
