“Make a joyful noise unto God, all ye lands.” Psalm 66:1 (KJV)

July 2022

“When the people heard this, they were cut to the heart and said to Peter and the other apostles, “Brothers, what shall we do?”  Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins.”  Acts 2:37-38 (NIV)

Just as Jesus provided the skills and opportunities for the disciples to tell others about Him, He regularly opens doors for us to tell the truth of the gospel and invite others to know Him like we do. 

Let’s pray this month that we would intentionally share how God has changed our lives. (paraphrased from the July Mission Mosaic magazine prayer calendar, July 1st).

June 2022

“But if anyone obeys his word, love for God is truly made complete in them.  This is how we know we are in him.  Whoever claims to live in him must live as Jesus did.”  1 John 2:5-6. 

 

God has asked us to be concerned about only one thing: obeying his command to declare what He has done in our lives.  The specifics of obedience are unique to all of us.  Let’s all pray to be motivated by the deep love God has showered on us and in return love Him by obeying his commands. (This is paraphrased from the June issue of Mission Mosaic magazine.)

 

The Picnic for the Visually Impaired was held on Tuesday, May 10 at Riverside Baptist Church in Graham.  There were over 50 attendees as all were thankful and happy to gather again for fellowship, food, singing and door prizes.  Thank you to Riverside Baptist Church and many others who made the evening a joy!

May 2022

Romans 8:34: "Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us."   I wouldn’t want it any other way.  Hold tight to His hand and think of Him as we live each day by His grace.
