TESTIMONY OF DANNY LAKE (from July 10, 2003):

Patti and I came to this area a couple of years ago after being unchurched for a while. We had no friends or relatives in Winnsboro and certainly had no idea where our church home might be. That is, until we met Donald and Corinne Tinney, our next-door neighbors. From the first time we came to Tinney Chapel, at their invitation, we knew that this was meant to be our church home. It was the right place for us to build our lives on and we thank God for Tinney Chapel. --From Tinney Chapel UMC Communications archives, maintained by Joe Dan Boyd.
