GRACE MISSIONARY BAPTIST CHURCH
February 9, 2020
If We Are The Body
If the church is going to develop the kind of beauty that God says is possible, that which will attract others to Christ, we must commit to becoming the kind of church Christ calls us to be a church that is a biblical fellowship.
In his book, Rediscovering Church, Bill Hybels tells of a message by Dr. Gilvert Bilezikian, who said, “The only kind of fellowship many know in church is after a service when men stand around and ask each other superficial questions. Then they find their wives who are having similar conversations, and go home.
But biblical fellowship has the power to revolutionize lives. Masks come off, conversations get deep, hearts get vulnerable, lives are shared, Accountability is invited, and tenderness flows. People really do become like brothers and sisters. They shoulder each other’s burdens - and unfortunately, that was something that few of the people today experience growing up in church in America.”
Pray This Week:
Remind me Lord that your house, and this church body are a gift given as shelter from the storms of everyday life. A safe harbor. Help us Lord to not take that gift, nor one another, for granted. Father, foster a passion within us to draw near to you and, as we do, experience the kind of biblical fellowship at Grace that will also draw others.
- Valentines Banquet February 15th, 2020 5:00 pm. Are you ready?? Excited? It is almost here! It is time for the annual Valentine’s Banquet. The Ladies Of Grace have been working hard...cooking up some surprises. Organizing a little fun, and yes, planning a really great meal. Come out and join in the festivities and fellowship. All are invited over the age of 18. Invite a friend to join us. Sign-up sheet will be on the information table in the hallway. Childcare provided for a donation to the youth.
- Blessing Bags Thank you to everyone who contributed the Blessing Bags. Everyone was so generous that Paige and I had to make more bags. Keep the recipients in prayer that God will use the bags to minister to their hearts.
- Ladies Bible Study Every Other Thursday Evening, Next Meeting 2/20 Community Room. The Ladies missed meeting this past Thursday because of the weather, but even the weather could not keep them from a time of fellowship and worship together. We each committed to a time of corporate prayer at 6:40 pm. Praising our Father, praying for one another and our church. I can’t speak for everyone else, but for me it was an inspiring time of worship. Dee.
The next Ladies Bible study will be on Thursday 2/20 at 6:30 pm. Invite a friend and join your sisters in Christ as we learn, grow and support one another in love.
