Dear Folks -
If you haven't been to your church lately, you've been missing
something special. But if you have been here you know that great
things are going on.
People are being saved, literally from the clutches of hell and
death. Many baptisms are occurring, some nearly every week. Programs
are continually spreading God's Word. Sunday school is something
else! Our doors are open Wednesday night, Friday Night, Saturday
night, Sunday morning and evening. Plus our Family Life Center is open to
the Youth with various activities scheduled. We have one home
Bible study a week, and are making plans to start another. We have a
once a month Mens' Breakfast, WMU, Ladies Night
Meetings, in a word, something for everyone. We have baptisms
in the creek and in our baptistry.
In the year Bro. Larry and Sis. Terry have been with us 38 people
have given themselves to Christ and all but 4 have followed the Lord
in Baptism. There have been close to 40 join the church by letter or
statement and out of all these newly saved and baptized, at least 90%
are "stayers." These numbers don't include those still
waiting to be baptized, or have yet to received their membership
transfer from their previous church. That number would add another 10
to our flock. Precious statistics.
This past month special events have included Bro. Larry
preaching several sermons at CrossRoads Baptist Church with many from
our church in attendance both Monday and Tuesday nights.
AWANA ended with the end of the school year, and "Parent's
Night," was a good time for all.
"Wacky Wednesdays," have started for the same age
groups. For our first night, we had indoor singing and an
outdoor hot dog roast, with s'mores for dessert.
Bro. Jim Rogers is continuing to teach a Bible Study Class on
Sunday Night at 5PM.
Wednesday nights always includes the regular mid-week service; Choir Practice;
and "Wacky Wednesdays."
Each Friday evening Bible Study is rotated at different members
homes and we share food and fellowship starting at 6PM.
Our monthly Pot Luck dinner and business meeting is the second
Sunday of each month.
Then too, Vacation Bible School is looming on the horizon.
We also have a very active Prayer Chain, with many vigilant
prayer warriors participating.
And a food pantry and clothing closet is constantly being repopulated.
In addition to our regular business meeting this month, we will
be presenting a slate of nominations for next year's appointed and
It certainly is not too late for you to step forward, and make a commitment
to YOUR local church for the coming year. If you are not already
doing something for your church, now would be a good time to start.
You have been given at least one, special gift of service by
the Holy Spirit. Isn't it time you put it to a good work for the Lord?
Our Local Church is a vital, living, instrument to the ONE true,
living God of the Universe.
Our God IS/WAS/AND SHALL EVERMORE BE God the Father, God the Son
and God the Holy Spirit.
See you in church!
