Local Centennial Baptist youth return safely from West Virginia
Sunday morning a good attendance was present with several visitors. They are always a blessing to us when they come. Our prayer is they received a blessing and will come again. The Call to Worship, â€œSurely the Presence of the Lord.â€� The choir special was â€œWonderful, Merciful Savior,â€� special music by Bonita Crew, â€œOn My Cross.â€� Bro. Ronâ€™s message was â€œSpiritual Warfare,â€� II Cor. 10 and other scriptures. Our minds are in a battle everyday; Satan always tries to make us doubt our salvation. We live in a cursed world, seems like anything goes, Jesus wants to be Lord of our life, He said it wouldnâ€™t be easy, but He would be with us and never leaves us alone. We need to always study the Bible and not be ashamed of the Gospel of Christ when Satan tries to make us forget who we are in Christ. We are motivated by grace to serve God; we are free in Christ and learn to forgive others like Jesus.
On Sunday night at 6 p.m. we had our fifth Sunday night singing.
Well itâ€™s that time again. Next Monday, August 6 school will begin for another year. We often ask where does the time go? Maybe we need to ask what do I do with the time I have? Do we make the best of it or do we waste it? We need to encourage the students to do the very best that they can because one day they will need all the education they can get so now is the time. As we all start out on Monday morning please watch for the big yellow buses, the extra traffic, children waiting for buses etc. Another important thing if youâ€™re in a hurry, try to leave home earlier that way you donâ€™t have to speed, putting others in danger. Your children included.
On Thursday night, August 2 the Associational Brotherhood meeting will be held at New Hope Baptist Church at 7 p.m.
Homecoming will be held at Brownwood Baptist next Sunday, August 5th. After the morning service barbecue and stew and a covered dish meal will be served in the Family Life Center.
Sunday, August 12 at 7:30 a.m. the Brownwood Brotherhood will be having breakfast.
Steve, Annette, Savannah, Madison and Sigrid Duren were back on Sunday after vacationing with other family members at Gulf Shores, Alabama. Twenty-two enjoyed this time together.
Peggy Harper visited Margie Ward Monday afternoon.
Christy and Emma Vaughn, John Grubbs, Clint, Crystal, Kaleigh, Chris, Triston, Breonnah and Karissa Grubbs spent last weekend at Tybee Island. They camped out and went to the beach. This was Emmaâ€™s first camping trip and first trip to the beach. They all picked up a lot of sea shells, played in the sand, built sand castles, roasted hot dogs, and made smokers over campfire. Weâ€™re glad they are back and had a safe trip.
A group has returned back to Centennial Baptist after spending a week in West Virginia. While there they had worship services, Vacation Bible School family day, the men did much needed carpenter work to the buildings in the area. They distributed book bags filled with school supplies to the children. Twenty-three men, women and children went on this trip. They had a safe travel there and back and they all thank God for being with them and making it possible for them to go and help others in need.
On Sunday Sonny, Mary, Sarah, Rebekah, Rachel and Zach Wood, Julie and Billy Phillips enjoyed dinner with Margie Ward. We celebrated Rebekahâ€™s 13th birthday, which was on July 26th.
