There is no mercy or forgiveness for obeying these commandments. Where there is guilt there will be punishment. Only the sacrifice Jesus made on the cross can save us.

Vilott Baptist Church
What a wonderful time of year when people are truly thankful for what they have. Of course, we at Vilott are always happy to share what we have and know the blessings come from a loving God.
We had a great time last week sharing the gospel and food with a large crowd. It is always our hope everyone comes to realize Jesus as Savior and Lord of their life.
Thanksgiving day should be everyday.
We will continue to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ all over the world.
Every day should begin with thanks to the Lord for all we have. Begin your day with prayer. Concentrate on the Lord's direction and remember His commandment to us:
We are charged with sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Matthew 28:18-20 says, Jesus came and spoke, "All power is given unto Me in heaven and earth. Go ye, therefore, and teach all nations of the Father and the Son and the Holy Ghost, teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you. Lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world."
We will have the Men's Breakfast on the first Saturday in December. We will eat at 8 a.m. and have a time for fellowship and a short work session.
The jam sessions begins at 10 a.m. This is a time to bring your instruments and have fun. We will be focusing on Christmas music this month.
Our other schedule change for the month of December is that there will be no Thursday small group meetings. Vilott Baptist Church will be open at all the other regularly schedule times.
God loves you, and we love you. Come join in and be a part. If you need our Pastor Rick Isham, he can be contacted at 665-1629.
