Old Macedonia Baptist Church
Folks, what a beautiful Sunday it was down on the river at Old Macedonia for celebrating the resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!
Sunday school was followed by the congregation singing “There’s Power in the Blood” and a toe-tapping “I’ll Fly Away.”
The youth performed an inspiring Easter play with an interesting modern twist to it. Pastor Edwards encouraged everyone to put God first in our lives, and as always, opened the altar with loving enthusiasm. Our prayer list was updated and was prayed over by the entire congregation.
We invite you to come and visit our church. Our congregation grows every week, with the Love family joining this week. Folks, it doesn’t get any better than that. If you need your spiritual tank filled up, come on down and Pastor Wilson will throw in a free anointing of body and soul.
Be like Noah and don’t miss the boat. Remember: we have no promise of tomorrow; today is the day for salvation.
Calvary Independent Baptist Church
We had a great time at the egg hunt on Saturday and the birthday party later that evening.
Sunday morning services included a sunrise service with breakfast following, of which we want to say a special thanks to all involved in making this a wonderful service.
Our regular service on Sunday morning included special songs by the choir. The short message by Bro. Kevin Shaw from Luke 18 was about the gospel of Christ not known by the twelve apostles, and yet the death, burial and resurrection of Christ is the very heart of the message we must believe today in order to be saved. We hope that you are one of the believers today and that by believing you know that you now have salvation.
Bro. Oscar Mims followed with a short message from Luke 24 about the two who were walking on the road to Emmaus. We indeed serve a risen Savior and we ought to have a heart’s desire for the teaching and hearing of the word of God.
Sunday night, service included a message from Ephesians 2:8-9 about how our work is never for salvation but rather because of having salvation. We looked at the undeserved favor of God, the unconditional love of God, the unstoppable way to God, the undesirable gift of God and the understanding of the work of God. Of all the above mentioned, the idea that the free gift of salvation as an undesirable gift is hard to imagine. We stand today as a nation turned away from God because more and more people choose death rather than life. We hope that you are trusting in the finished work of Christ for salvation, are saved and living by the faith of Jesus Christ.
We would love for you to visit with us this Sunday.
