Mt Pleasant Baptist Church

Pastor Charles Williams sermon was on Malachi 2:10-16. The title of his sermon was Breaking God’s Covenant. Malachi tells Israel that God loves them. He is their Father and their Creator. Yet, Israel has broken God’s covenant; marrying foreign wives, and were treacherous toward the wife of their youth and with each other. God’s desire for them is to be faithful to Him. Israel lost generations to grief because of their treachery and sin.

The lesson is to love God as much as He loves us. God’s love is sovereign, unconditional, and personal. His love is exclusive and He wants us to love him back in that way. We have been forewarned in these verses that the result of sin is grief and the result of faithfulness to God is love and peace.

Youth pastor candidates

Mt Pleasant Baptist is in search of a youth pastor and is looking at two candidates. One candidate will be here next week and will be in the church service next Sunday.

Women’s Bible class

New Life Bible Church

 “Prayer That Changes the Heart”

Pastor Andy Anderson gave a message Sunday from John 17, the prayer of Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane, including 17:20-24, where Jesus prayed that the disciples would be one in the Lord. Andy explained, “This is an important prayer, and we must really listen to it. May our unity not be because we are all doing the same work, but may it be because we are listening to Jesus Christ. How will the world know we are Christians? One of the worst testimonies is when we know someone for a long time and when we reveal ourselves to be Christians, they say, ‘Oh, I didn’t know.’ They should know us because of our unity with Him, and with each other. If God is the most important one to you, and you are asking Him to use you, and you are being a reflection to others of Him, people will see this. ”

The pastor went on to say, “In Matthew, when Jesus drove out the money changers, he said, ‘My house is a house of prayer.’ The only way we can follow Him is to be a house of prayer – to put prayer on the pedestal where it needs to be, so we can know how to follow Him. When Jim Cymbala was called to a church in Brooklyn, there were about 30 people, mostly prostitutes and drug dealers. But Jim Cymbala  stayed, and put it to prayer. It is now 16,000 strong, not because Cymbala has great talent, but because he has prayer.”

Andy’s exhorted the church saying, “We must pray. We must know how to listen to Him. We must dedicate our life to Him, and is that any small task? As a church, we must be challenged to step out into the next phase of trusting Christ, by being on our knees and saying, ‘Lord, empty me and fill me with all of You.’ Then the next step is to tell Him, ‘I trust You with my family. They are Yours.’ Give them to Him. Trust Him. Trust Him with yourselves, with your families, with your finances, with everything you have. If you do that, He will put someone in front of you who needs to hear about Him.”    

Moving Ministry

This Friday evening and Saturday morning, August 10 and 11, everyone who is available is asked to come help Megan and Trey Shero move into their home in Gainesville. Please contact the Sheros, DeMents, or Dulocks for details on how you can help.

Women’s Ministry

Saturday morning, Aug. 18, the women will gather for a fellowship breakfast at IHOP at 8:30 a.m. This will be a time to relax, let someone else do the cooking, and get to know each other better.

What do you crave? Food? Social media? TV? Extreme organization? Do these cravings take up more of your time and thoughts than your attention to your relationship with Christ? The women of New Life Bible are involved in a study on Thursday evenings at 7:30 p.m. based on the book, “Made to Crave” by Lysa Terkeust, which helps teach how to turn your desires away from cravings and toward Christ. Women throughout the community are invited to join this study led by Kim Wilson.

High School Youth

Youth leaders James and Alison Lewis meet with the high school youth in the outer building every Sunday morning at 9:30, for an invigorating study of the Gospels. The high school also meets on Wednesday evenings at the Lewis’ home, learning how to study their bibles. This is very important to everyone to learn, so they can build a foundation of knowledge about the Lord and their faith, growing their relationship with the Lord.

Junior High Youth

The junior high youth meet on Sunday morning as well, and are currently learning the foundational principles of the Old Testament, relating that knowledge with the New Testament, and growing their relationship with the Lord.

New Life Family Prayer

Each Sunday morning those wishing to join in corporate prayer are invited to come together in one of the front hall Sunday school rooms from 9 to 9:30. This is an opportunity to lift our church and our leadership up in prayer, as well as others who come to mind. Sunday school for all ages, toddlers through adults, begins immediately after the prayer time. A nursery is offered throughout Sunday morning, and  during the church service. Children’s Church is also offered for the children toddler-aged through pre-school.

Praise and Worship

Steven Dulock and the praise team, including Amy Dulock and Anna Gleaton, use their God-given talent to lead the congregation in contemporary praise and worship every Sunday morning before the church receives the Word of God. Everyone is invited to experience this time of praise, lifting your voice to our Creator.
