Bible Conference

It is time once again for our annual Bible Conference.  I personally am excited for the time we can spend around the Word of God with the men of God who will be coming to preach.  Sunday evening March 19, Dr. Lou Rossi will be with us.  Monday Brother Jeremy Kobernat from Victory Baptist Church in Roanoke Rapids will be our guest. Tuesday Dr. Kenny Baldwin and Wednesday Dr. Lou Baldwin from Bailey’s Crossroads, VA.  Thursday Dr. Johnny Pope from Houston Texas will close out our meeting of great Biblical preaching that will stir our hearts.  Please make your plans to attend now if at all possible every service.  Don’t miss the blessing the Lord has in store for you!!

Christmas Time

Wow!  There are numerous events in our church that are exciting, but I do not know when we have had a more thrilling service as our young people presented “Born To Die” this past Sunday.  The youngest group sang remarkably well defining the moment for the entire audience.  When the teenagers took the platform, everyone was captive at the scene in heaven as the angels conversation was about the Son of God leaving.  The obvious purpose we know, it was for sinful man!  You can watch it again from our website.

However, the most wonderful conclusion to the evening was two adults came forward to accept Jesus as their Savior!  Wow!  We serve an amazing God who continues to save the lost who trust Him!

May we always remember the birth of the Savior during this most wonderful time of the year!

Thankful

There are multitudes of things for which we are Thankful!  If we would simply take the time and concentrate on the spiritual things first.  Salvation includes so many areas of the spiritual life that it overwhelms me: eternal life, the forgiveness of sins, a glorified body one day, living in the presence of Jesus, and so much more.  Our lives have become so cumbered with stuff that we tend to bypass the value of Thanksgiving to our God.  May we take the time to open our heart and express our gratitude to the only true and living God of Glory!!

Teen Sunday

On November 6, we had one of the most incredible Sundays ever.  It was Teen Sunday and most all of our young people were involved in some capacity in the services.  How thrilling it was to see them prepared for singing a choir special, making announcements, providing special music, receiving the offering and preaching.  There has been an overwhelming positive response from the adults and the young people alike wanting it to happen again.  One lady said, “This is like revival, I have been so touched by the way these young people have handled the services today.”   It is exciting to watch them getting busy in their service for the Lord.  Our prayer is the enthusiasm will continue for weeks and months to come as the Lord is obviously working in lives within our church!  May the Lord bless you greatly in the coming days!

Fall has Arrived

As the cooler temperatures approach we are excited about the events planned for the season.  We will be having our annual BBQ & Stew October 22 which is always fun and filling with great food and fellowship.  The kids will have the opportunity to play games and our teenagers will be working toward a successful day of activities too help them for summer camp next year.

Our AWANA program has begun this year with anticipation of watching our young people grow in their knowledge of the Bible.  New families have joined our church and we are thrilled to have them as they are looking forward to serve the Lord in the many ministries we have to offer.

On October 23rd, we will have our very first Hispanic Ministry service.  Brother Leo Vasquez has been diligently working in the Hispanic community seeing several accept the Lord as Savior and building relationships for this exciting day.  Please be in prayer for he and his wife as they work to start a church for the Spanish speaking people of this area.

Summer Events

As the summer approaches, we anticipate the excitement of several events. Neighborhood Bible Time is one of the great highlights of our year that involve our young people from K-4 – 12th grades and many adults. The opportunity to reach out into the community to bring in hundreds of kids to this week is fulfilling. Most importantly sharing the Gospel and message of salvation through Christ. We look forward to the week of June 19th, make plans now to help or make sure your children attend NBT!

Bible Conference

We are so excited about our Bible Conference this year. The men who will be with us are being used mightily of the Lord all over this great country. God’s power is very evident in their lives and in their preaching. Dr. David Gibbs will be our guest on Monday and Tuesday, Dr. Lou Baldwin on Wednesday and Dr. Kenny Baldwin on Thursday. Make plans to attend and be open to the working of the Lord in your heart. Bring a guest, or if you are taking a look at our website, come visit during this exciting week of conference.

Annual Missions Conference

While the snow hindered our efforts to have service this past Sunday, we are looking forward to our Annual Missions Weekend. Each Sunday School department has their assigned area of the world to focus on for the upcoming fellowship and meet the Missionary on Saturday January 30, at 5 p.m. We are excited to have Dr. Terry Ellis, the president and director of Rock of Ages Prison Ministries to be our keynote speaker for both services on Sunday. During our Sunday School hour, our guest missionaries will be sharing their burden for the field the Lord has called them to. Please do not miss this most exciting day!

Services Today (Jan 24) Cancelled

Hello again Church family! We made every attempt to keep our parking lot cleared for services today. In fact, several of our teenagers came out yesterday to shovel the sidewalks and spread salt and others brought equipment to clear our parking lot. Unfortunately, the snow simply dropped too late into the day for us to be able to keep up. In addition to that, VDOT plows running down Route 1 have created a large pile of packed snow at the entrances that most vehicles will not be able to clear. Therefore, we have decided to cancel our services for today. Thank you to everyone who had worked to keep our property safe and clear and we look forward to seeing you on Wednesday!
