Sportsman’s Blast


We would like to take this opportunity to invite you to the 2022 Sportsman’s Blast on February 11, 2022. This year will be modified a bit because of COVID restrictions. We will not have displays in the gym as we have in the past, but we will have a wonderful speaker and drawings and giveaways as normal. Our Speaker will be Dr. John D. Morgan, Pastor of the Sagemont Church in Houston, Texas. John is also an avid American and African hunter with a wonderful background that he can share. He loves hunting but Christ is his priority.

The mission statement of Sagemont Church is: “To provide living proof of a loving God to a watching world.”

John’s life goal is: “To pastor an effective church rather than a successful church”.

Our experience is that God has effectively fulfilled both of these statements. John’s delivery is absolutely in line with the goal at Briarwood to share the Gospel in a fallen world.

This year the Fellowship Hall will open at 6:00 p.m. with a Bar-B-Que meal from Bob Sykes in Bessemer. The program will start at 7:00 p.m. and once again, our goal is to finish at 9:00 p.m. We will have drawings as normal.

One thing we want to remind you of is that our normal attendance of 500 will be reduced to 250 due to COVID distancing provisions. This means that we will need to be diligent in our efforts to bring an unbelieving friend. Our goal is to tell folks about the redeeming love of Christ Jesus. The Blast is simply the vehicle to attain that goal.
