Several matters collide this Sunday morning. As we strive to do every Sunday, we gather to worship Jesus. He is the only reason we gather on Sundays anyway. We will do our best to honor Him and preach Him. Second, we will dedicate parents and children to the Lord. This is a tradition for us on the Sunday before Thanksgiving. We have a number of families who are participating. Third, this Sunday, we are celebrating the 30th anniversary of our Chinese ministry. As you know, we believe that God has called us to preach the Gospel to the nations. We are blessed in our city to have a direct ministry to Chinese. We will celebrate with them 30 years of ministry. And, finally, Sunday is the Sunday before Thanksgiving. So, in all of these things, we give thanks. I hope you will join us.
Then, Sunday night is our Annual Church Conference. We will seek to approve the Ministry Action Plan (Budget) for 2019 and approve committees for 2019.
Be praying for YEC! YEC stands for Youth Evangelism Celebration. This is the largest event of the Louisiana Baptist Convention. Organizers expect 7,000 students from across the state to gather Sunday night and Monday in Alexandria. Be praying for an extraordinary move of God.
