Ogden First Baptist Church: Barry Webb’s evangelism team will have meetings at First Baptist Church in Ogden, May 1-4. The Webbs are a family evangelism team based near Cumberland, Maryland. Originally from Delaware County, Barry is the son of a well-known evangelist, Dr. Hal Webb. Cheryl is the daughter of Pastor Clifford Proper, who pastored a Baptist church in Elmira, NY. Together they make a very unusual evangelistic team. The Webbs have a variety of talents. First of all, they are accomplished musicians. In their meetings, they sing solos and duets. Cheryl is an excellent pianist. Barry plays trombone as well as Euphonium and Flugabone horns. Barry is also a ventriloquist and has over thirty-five years of puppetry experience. He does all the voices for the twenty puppets who travel with the team in their puppet castle scene. On some nights, Barry will draw an art picture in chalk, complete with background music, a dramatized story, and black and colored light effects. Mrs. Webb leads a nightly Bible hour for children during preaching time. There, children enjoy learning the Bible through songs, verses, Bible stories, and puppets.
All of their talents work together to point to the most important facet of their ministry, the preaching of the Bible, the Word of God. With all these different ministries, there is surely something for everyone, young and old. The Webbs ministry is sure to bless and attract your entire family! The Webbs will be at First Baptist Church in Ogden for regular May 1 services and for evening services May 2-4 at 7 p.m. The church is located at 2446 Mill Road, Upper Chichester, PA. For more information about the church, visit their website: fbcogden.org.
