Dear Grace Family and Friends,
I’m excited about worshiping with you today. Vacation time is special and I love it. Yet nothing takes the place of gathering with my Grace Baptist family for worship. I’m greatly blessed to be your Pastor and I do not take that for granted. There are hundreds of Churches in our area that you could attend. Yet God led you here and you have followed His lead. Thank you for entrusting us to be “your Church family.” The leadership of Grace Baptist is committed to doing everything in our power to enable you to realize your full potential in Jesus Christ. Yet that ultimate responsibility rests with each individual. We must maintain the Godly disciplines of daily Bible study and prayer in order to more fully understand His plan and purpose for our lives. We also need to prioritize “corporate worship.” Gathering with our Church family to sing God’s praises and study God’s Word equips and encourages us like nothing else can. In addition, finding our place of service and being faithful to it is essential to being all God intends. I’m so grateful for the faithful servants of Grace Baptist in Evans. We couldn’t do what we do without you. Thank you! May God richly bless you all. Yet more help is needed. We are a growing Church with more than our fair share of children and youth. The responsibility for their spiritual development rests with each of us. Your children may be grown and even have children of their own, like Leila’s and mine. Yet God’s call to serve is for every Believer. There are many needs. We need Nursery workers, Ushers and 1st Touch Greeters, as well as Choir members and Teachers. Are you doing your part? If not, find a place to serve our great God and be faithful to it. Few other things in life affect us as profoundly. I love you and am honored to be your Pastor. God bless you all!
