PASTOR LOSES HIS LOCKS Rev. Jamie Lamoreaux, pastor of Briarwood Baptist Church, gets his head shaved Sunday night by his brother, Michael, while youth member Megan Croley watches. Lamoreaux promised his congregation that if 250 children registered for Vacation Bible School, he would let the highest bidder shave his head. When 255 people registered, the youth group raised $1,376 and let church members take turns with their minister's haircut. Church members will use the money raised to buy Bibles for every child at Northeast Middle School. The church gave Bibles to all Northeast Elementary School children last year.
