FOCUS ON MISSIONS

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.

April 2022

 

“The angel said to the women, ‘Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified.  He is not here; he has risen, just as he said.  Come and see the place where he lay’.”

Matthew 28:5-6

 

Can we even imagine it, that Jesus was raised from the dead?  Lord we lift our hearts to you.  May Christ, Our Risen Savior, be by our side to bless us abundantly and be our loving guide.

"Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you." Ephesians 4:32

We are called to repent and humbly come to Jesus in confession, knowing that the mercy of Christ is forever greater than the sins of man.  Let’s join together to spiritually prepare for the celebration of Easter and Christ’s resurrection.
