A MINISTER’S MUSINGS
THIS SUNDAY (MARCH 19) OUR PULPIT GUEST will be Reverend Dionne Williams from the Gulf Coast. Dionne is the Associational Director of Missions for the Mississippi Gulf Coast, and he previously served as Minister of Education/Administration in Mississippi churches from the Delta to the Coast. He served at OJ and Teresa Seals’ home church of Union Baptist Church in Picayune, MS, and he was reared in Pearl River County. He is presently leading a church start on the Gulf Coast, and with the emphasis on church starting, we will have a front row seat to this work. Come and hear from an “insider” about the work of church planting.
This Sunday will conclude the Week of Prayer for North American missions, and I hope you have read your prayer guide through this week. We will be promoting our goal for Annie Armstrong Easter Offering as we continue to emphasize missions across our continent. May God help us to be faithful to support those who serve.
DECISIONS, DECISIONS MAY BE THE THEME for our UPWARD ministry. During the deacons’ meeting this past Sunday the probability of discontinuing the ministry was put forward. There were several reasons for this consideration. If you have a thought about UPWARD, then send your emails to firstname.lastname@example.org. Our children’s ministry may be better served in other areas, since UPWARD takes such a huge amount of time and energy. However, I would be interested in hearing from you. Thanks for your support of this program for the past 10 years.
THE LENTEN SERVICE ON MARCH 22 will be led by Dr. Billy Sanson and the text will be John 16. The text is rich in its description of the Holy Spirit’s work, the urgency of the hour, and the tribulation facing Jesus’ followers. Hope you will join us for Billy’s message and lunch for $1.50....read more here
