Who We Are
Donny and Dana Coulter
Full Bio to come soon....
Donny and Dana have lived in Pincher Creek many years raising their family, working the farm and preaching God's word in this community since moving here from Tennessee.
We are currently a church in transition here at FBC and have written vows to Donny and his Heartland family as we become "engaged" and work toward our "marriage" of our churches.
This address is from the First Baptist Congregation to the Heartland Congregation
We were always your brothers and sisters in Christ as part of the larger Church
But we have decided to get engaged to you and we feel absolutely privileged to do this.
These are our engagement vows
We want you to continue to be who you are. A body of believers who looks after each other. We don’t want you to lose your close fellowship.
As time goes on we will intend to grow into a larger close fellowship
We do not want one of you to feel left out or unwanted, not one
Your prayers will become our prayers
We desire your prayers
Your hurts will cause us to hurt with you
When you sing and worship and praise God we will worship God also
When your kids run around make noise and even break stuff we are happy that they are in this church
This building is your building

We want you to keep this vow in case you have to remind us
