The Charles St. Christian Church would like to introduce its new minister, Pastor Tom Lasure, to the Shinnston area. Pastor Tom started his ministry with a series of sermons on gratitude. He is devoting Advent to the message of hope.
In addition, the church is renewing its custom of having a candlelight Christmas Eve celebration.
Pastor Tom is eager to harmoniously work with other Shinnston area churches so that people can see the love of Christ in all area Christians.
