Religion

  • New Columbus Baptist

    The Sunday message pastor Brad Vincent will deliver comes from Isaiah chapter 11 and is titled “The True Vine.”
    Judah and Israel had become corrupt and unfaithful to the point God allowed His people to be conquered by Assyria as judgement for their not following Him.
    However, in chapter 11, the prophet Isaiah is extending hope to a devastated Jerusalem by reassuring the people of a coming King.

  • Monterey Baptist

  • Gratz Baptist

    What a Baptist morning. Brother Lewis’ message was from James 1:27 and Luke 13:5. Are you a child of God? you must repent and be born again to become a child of God.
    All we have to do is believe and have faith to know that he is always there. It’s up to us to let him into our hearts and lives. There is nothing better to have in your life than Jesus.  
    Keep all those who are on our prayer list in your prayers a special prayer to the Furnish family.  

  • Cedar Hill Baptist

    Bro. Adam’s message was from Matthew 3:13-17 on the baptism of Jesus. Jesus was baptized to identify with us, to be obedient to God, and to serve as an example for us. Baptism does not save us, only acceptance of Jesus Christ through faith saves us. However, baptism is the first step in obedience to Christ after we accept Him through faith. We rejoice with Stacey and Jason as they have expressed their faith in Christ and followed in obedience with baptism.

  • First Christian

    First Christian said farewell and thank you to the Rev. Dann Masden with a hearty country breakfast before worship Sunday morning.
    The Rev. Masden is leaving First Christian for a new interim mininstry and he will be missed.
    The children learned about being a player on God’s team during “A Time for Young Disciples” and each received a wrist band with 3:16 to remind them of the John 3:16 scripture.
    The choir provided a beautiful special led by Berna Tanksley, minister of music.

  • Epoch

    The past couple weeks have been totally exciting for us. We are happy to announce our newest partnership with First Baptist Woodstock in Georgia.
    Pastor Johnny Hunt and their church planting ministry will be guiding us in reaching our goals to reach our community for Christ.
    Our local ministry, “The Wild Goose Cafe,” had a huge grand opening last week followed by the Owen County Arts Council’s poetry reading/concert last Saturday. All of our proceeds from the cafe go to helping families in need here in our community.

  • We’re all in this together

    Every Sunday afternoon in Placentia, Calif., the Watson family gathers for Family Day.
    Although informal — most every Watson comes either barefoot or wearing flip flops — it has its own set of rules and rituals.
    According to Jennifer (Watson) Fiamengo, the rules mainly pertain to the food served. If they grill hamburgers or hot dogs, her mother MUST make her family-famous macaroni salad. If they have Mexican food, her mother must make seven-layer dip.

  • Salem Baptist

    Sunday, we had a wonderful crowd on such a wonderful Lord’s day.
    Special thanks to our music guests, Mr. and Mrs. Jack and Lucy Parker, and Mary Marlow.
    Bro. Jared’s message was “Being Able to Say I Love You,” based on  John 3:16-17 and Matthew 3:13-17.

  • Pleasant Ridge Baptist

    The Rev. Wotier’s message, “Do You Know My Voice?” was taken from John 10. God cares for us like a shepherd cares for his sheep. Christ is the Door and the Shepherd. Christ is the access point for His flock. Christ’s sheep follow Him. Jesus’ sheep have eternal life. His sheep cannot be snatched from His flock if we truly believe.
    The deacon of the month is Ralph Toole.

  • Old Cedar Baptist

    What a beautiful day it was Sunday. The sun was shining and the birds were singing. It was nice to see so many people in church.
    Our church opened up with “The New Beginnings” choir singing “He Has Made Me Glad” and  “We Bring the Sacrifice of Praise.”
    Joy and her puppet told us the real meaning of Valentine’s Day — job well done by all.
    Bro. James’ sermon was titled “Are You Willing to Suffer Persecution for Jesus?” taken from Matthew 12.
