This blog will be a sampling of the articles I write for the Centennial monthly newsletter along with anything else I need to get off my mind. Sometimes there will be attempts at humor, and for that I apologize now. Other times, the subjects will be more theological in nature. I do not pretend to be an expert in any field, but I have an opinion on just about everything, and can usually make a pretty good defense if challenged. Enjoy my ramblings and feel free to share them with anyone else who may be blessed by them.
“It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore, keep standing firm…” – Galatians 5:1
As we celebrate our nation’s birthday this month, I cannot help but think about how so many people do not understand freedom. While some abuse the freedom we have or misinterpret it as a license to do whatever they want, let us remember that true freedom is found in Christ Jesus, the only One who sets us free from sin and its bondage.
Please plan to join me for The Most Important Day of ENCOUNTER on Saturday, July 30th at Barnesville First Baptist. Evangelist Jon Reed will be leading the training. You can be involved in two ways:
1. Response Team Training, 9 AM. If you would like to assist those who make decisions at ENCOUNTER, plan to be at this training.
2. Every Member Training, 10 AM. If you have anyone in your life who needs Jesus (and you know you do), then this training is for you. You will learn how to pray for, engage with, and invest in the lost. There is a suggested $10 donation to cover training materials. Encourage all your friends and fellow church members to attend.
Pray for those involved in missions this month. Many from our churches are on the go, as well as a group from the CBA that is going to Copper Basin. Youth from our churches will also be doing local missions during EQUIP on Mission this month. For more information on any of these opportunities, check out our website.
