Special Guest Preacher on February 4
On Sunday, February 4 at Smoke Rise, we will celebrate the Martha Stearns Marshall month of preaching as we welcome as our guest preacher The Rev. Captain Jessica Prophitt, Chaplain, United States Air Force. Chaplain Prophitt is the daughter-in-law of Smoke Rise church members Gary and Margaret Anne Prophitt. She is married to Lee Prophitt and they have two children, Ian age 4 and Ryan age 2.
Chaplain Prophitt is a CBF-endorsed military chaplain, serving her country as a Protestant Chaplain for the 673rd Air Base Wing, Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska. She enjoys providing the free exercise of religion for all who serve our country and she sees the protection of this freedom as “a crucial element to the success of the Air Force’s mission to fly, fight, and win.”
Her education includes completion of five units of Clinical Pastoral Education through the VA Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia and at the Moses Cone Hospital in Greensboro, North Carolina. In 2010, she completed seminary and received her Chaplaincy Endorsement from the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship.
We are pleased and proud to welcome Chaplain Prophitt to the Smoke Rise pulpit to preach on February 4, as we celebrate the Martha Stearns Marshall Month of Preaching. We look forward to hearing what God is leading her to share with our congregation.
