    Happy New Year! 2014 promises to be a great and exciting year for the family here at First Baptist. I am encouraged by the energy of our church right now. I am continuing to meet new family members who are returning, as well as new folks from the community coming to see who we are.

    I want each of you to know how important you are in the plans God has for us this year. As we prepare for revival here in Richmond, we first want to renew our hearts and minds to the plans and purpose God has for us as the church. With this in mind we will be having a “Celebration of Renewal” March 23-26. Beginning Sunday morning, the 23rd, I will start us off followed by Jim Herod on Sunday evening. Monday evening Jerry Cain will be here to challenge us, and Larry Thomas will lead on Tuesday evening. We will then dedicate Wednesday night to a time of prayer and commitment. I hope you will plan to join us for this renewal time.

    Working toward the “Celebration of Renewal,” we are also planning several fellowship events to continue to strengthen the unity of our body. The first is the work day this Saturday to touch up the sanctuary and chapel. Then we will have a “Souper Bowl Party” on Feb. 2nd, a time of fellowship food and fun. The Sweetheart Banquet for couples will fall on the 14th of February, and a “Hee Haw Family Night” on March 8th. There should be something for everyone, but the main purpose is to continue to build our fellowship. Many of these events are great opportunities to invite friends and family to also.

    I am looking forward to seeing each of you this Sunday, when our focus will be “Living in the World.”  May God bless your week!

    It is an honor to be your Pastor,

    Willie

    Pastor’s Column

    Posted By on December 16, 2013

    What an amazing service we had for Hanging of The Greens! It is truly the advent season. As I watched the transformation of the sanctuary, it reminded me of how God has transformed my life through Jesus. Not that the appearance of my life was a wreck, but when Jesus came in, the transformation was evident and dramatic.

    This is my favorite time of year, as we celebrate the coming of our Lord and Savior as a babe. I hope you will come and share with our family Sunday afternoon, December 8th. We will host an open house and we would love for you all to stop by and visit with us. We will be ready by 4 and will be there all evening. The address is 43383 Old Highway 10, east of town.

    I want to encourage you to participate with one of our Sunday School classes and their celebrations on the 15th in the evening. If you are not a part of one of our classes, this would be a great opportunity to meet some people that you could join on Sunday mornings.

    And don’t forget about the Christmas musical on December 22. It promises to be a great time of worship through music. I am also looking forward to the Christmas Eve service. It will be a great chance to invite some friends to join you and introduce them to your church family.

    Good News Class Annual Fundraiser for Salvation Army

    Posted By on November 10, 2013

    Christmas Teatime is our theme this year. We will be displaying teapots, cups, saucers, china, quilts, children’s toys, angels and nativities.

    We are planning a memorial for Mary Fitzgerald. She enjoyed helping every year by baking, making candy, visiting with people and displaying her collectibles.

    This year we are doing some “silent auctions.”  We have a beautiful quilt, a teapot and another surprise item.

    We can use your help, please!

    1. Some strong men to carry the large nativity to the stage in the fellowship hall.
    2. Baked goods and other items to sell.
    3. A few people to help us set up on Thursday, Nov. 14.
    4. Our church family to come by and visit us on Nov. 15 & 16.
    5. Pray for us as we try to raise money to help families in Richmond and Ray County.

    Thanks for caring,
    Good News Class.
