Kevin Sandmann, our Associate Pastor, opened the Morning Worship with prayer. Choice Stephens and Gary Boaz took up the offering. At the little red wagon going round to collect the change were Harley Harendt, C J. Oldaker and Emma Green.
Benny Strong, Rick Collett and Dean Armstrong with Suzanne Carpenter at the grand piano sang Somewhere. A beautiful and moving song with lots of applause afterwards.
Bro. Bill Black's sermon was from Acts 14:8-20. Worshiping some sort of an idol tries to fill up the empty spot in our makeup. Paul and Barnabus went to Lystra with the message of Jesus. They also healed a man crippled from birth. The people of Lystra wanted to worship them, calling them gods. Paul explained they were not gods, just messengers of the one true God. Then other Jews came from Antioch and Iconium and swayed the crowd so that they turned against Paul and stoned him, leaving him for dead. Popularity is fickle; you can be gods one day and goats the next. Put the message of salvation uppermost.

Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church
On Feb. 5, 2012, Pastor Chuck Williams directed the attention of the congregation to the New Testament churches. These churches were characterized as being holy, obedient, and making themselves ready. Today, a church like this is hard to find. In many of today's churches a few people do most of the work. To make Mt. Pleasant more like the early churches, the members must first be assured of their faith by examining its foundation. The Bible tells us of God's plan for our salvation through the birth, life, death, and resurrection of His Son, Jesus. We must believe in these holy events and ask Jesus into our hearts. Paul gives many assurances in Romans 8:1 and Romans 8:38-39 that a true believer cannot lose salvation and will be known as a Christian by his behavior to others.
There will be a business meeting at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 8, in the Fellowship Hall.

Prairie Grove Baptist Church
Our message Sunday was from Ecclesiastes 5. “Keep your vows.” Keep your word with God. God’s ways never end up disappointing us. Chuckie Alexander led the congregation in some hymns from the songbook.
The fifth Sunday services were for singing. Don Allen, son of the pastor, came from Conroe with his daughter, Emily, to bring special music. The grandchildren and in-laws of the pasor came to be in the service. Claudia Allen read two reading, one was serious and the other humorous. Chuckie Alexander and Don Allen sang, “When the Roll is Called Up Yonder.”
Dee Fisk and Larry Clark sang, “When We All Get to Heaven.” Then Larry sang “Midnight Cry” and “Standing on Holy Ground.”
Chuckie, Don, Jim Allen, Larry and Dee sang “I’ll Fly Away.” Wanda Almon played the piano for all who sang specials. After the service, lunch was served.

Baptism classes will now be offered on a quarterly basis rather than monthly. You do not have to wait until after your child is born to attend the class.

These are important questions to ask our friend and/or family member before asking them to be your child’s baptismal sponsor! Baptisms will continue to take place on the 3rd Sunday of the month (there are a few exception months: Lent/Easter/Christmas) although they will now be included during a Sunday Mass.

Vilott Baptist Church News
This week at Vilott Baptist Church promises to be a wonderful one for all of us. There are millions of people in the world who do not have the opportunity to attend services in a church full of love and the Holy Spirit. We can openly come to pray, sing praises, and read and listen to the Word of God without fear of prison, persecution, or death. Why wouldn’t everyone want to take full advantage of that blessing every time it is available?
We begin Sunday mornings with a fellowship breakfast at 9:30 a.m. followed by Sunday School at 10 a.m. The worship service begins at 11 a.m. and the Sunday evening service is at 6 p.m.
On Wednesday evenings we get together for a family meal at 6 p.m. The children at Vilott are some of our most precious treasures; so we have dedicated folks teaching them in TeamKid about loving and praising the Lord and about missions at home and around the world. Every child is welcome to join in at 7 p.m. A small group meets at the same time each Wednesday for Bible study, and we have a group of prayer warriors who come together, too.
A group of our children just came back from a wonderful and inspiring weekend at Camp Copass. Our youth group is getting ready for a mission trip to Riverbend in March. We have a great group of kids and young people at Vilott. The whole church supports and prays for their activities as these precious children grow in the Lord.
On Thursday mornings at 10 a.m. you have the opportunity to join another small group for Bible study followed by a fellowship lunch afterwards.
Our pastor Rick Isham is available to for counseling and prayer any time you need him. We have people throughout the church who are called to be prayer warriors. You can always be a partner in prayer. God loves you, and so do we. Come join us.
Call Pastor Rick Isham at 665-1629.
We are located on FM 678 east and north of Callisburg. The buildings are nestled in a grove of trees on the curve. Look for us, and we are looking for you.
