The greatest touchdown of all time

The greatest touchdown of all time

Our team scored big more than 2000 years ago. Jesus made the greatest touchdown of all time, causing us to win the game. But the other team began cheering when he was beaten down. Although the touchdown was for both teams, his opponent cheered the loudest as his followers looked on, denying that they knew him. What a touchdown! Surrounded by the defense, yet he held on to the ball of our sins, striving toward the finish line. He touched down on his knees in the garden of Gethsemane, praying, “Father, if it is your will, take away this cup from me.”

A message from Deidre Choat-Brown Olney Chamber of Commerce

This is the first big event I have had the pleasure of organizing since starting my job as director of the Chamber of Commerce in January of this year. At times, there were definitely fears of some little detail being forgotten, or not advertising the event enough. I had great help getting the word out between advertising in the Olney Enterprise Newspaper, Dan Branum speaking on Graham’s radio station 100.5FM, and our very own Mayor Rue Rogers and First Baptist Church pastor Chad Edgington speaking on the event at KFDX Newschannel 3 the morning of July 1st. I also had posters made with the awesome logo and a photo of our headlining performer, Jon Hope. All of these methods of advertising the event resulted in over 1,000 people in attendance, food trucks selling out, and an overall successful event!
