Growing Together in Faith
Rev. Phil Hardwick (Senior Pastor) knows no strangers, only friends he hasn't met.  He's been having fun as a pastor for over three decades in Mississippi, Tennessee, and Massachusetts.  Southern born, bred and buttered, but now stationed up in Yankee land. He gets a "bee in his bonnet" every now and then and let's it out every Sunday morning. Granted his accent throws people off, but he figures his is no worse than New Englanders who can't pronounce their R's. Among his favorite activities are reading, traveling, and watching the Red Sox. Two things he enjoys doing are: making people think and helping them to laugh. This he tries to do when preaching.  Ya'll feel free to come and check him out.
