…the season of singing has come… Song of Solomon 2:12

April 10, 2018

GREATER THINGS ARE YET TO COME
AND GREATER THINGS ARE STILL TO BE DONE IN THIS CITY……………..

I believe this past Sunday morning was a perfect example of what we are all about at First Baptist. We started the service with a baptism and later watched a beautiful video of our Walk with Jesus that was held on Palm Sunday. We also watched a video of old and new pictures of various locations and people throughout our city while the praise team shared the song, God of This City. Along with worship and the Word, I believe the Holy Spirit was present and we were all touched.

As you know, we will be hosting The Hoppers, a southern gospel, multi-award winning family group in concert at our church on July 20, 2018. The Hoppers have appeared at presidential religious inaugural ceremonies and New York’s Carnegie Hall. They have a unique blend of harmonies and song choices that has created a legacy of musical excellence embraced by leading pastors and event organizers. They are known as America’s Favorite Family of Gospel Music and are favorites on the Gaither Homecoming videos and tours. Please be in prayer as we prepare to “get the word out” to make sure our sanctuary is filled to overflowing for a wonderful night of worship with this great group.

We will soon be planning our own “Night of Worship” on Sunday, July 29, 2018. There will be singers from other churches around our area come and join with us in worship. Please be in prayer as we look forward to this special night.

It is a joy each week to lead in worship, especially with the praise team and praise band the Lord has provided our church. Everyone has their specific gifts and talents which they bring to the table at each practice and worship service.

Oh, magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together! Psalm 34:3

For His glory,
Debbie Anderson
