  • Announcement
           Since my conversion, I learned the joy of giving. My grandfather taught me the blessing of tithing found in Malachi 3:10 and the joy of soul-winning found in Psalm 126:5-6. He showed me how tithing was not only a matter of obedience, but of faith, as tithers acknowledged their dependence upon God for His ongoing provision. From the first church I pastored, I taught and believed our church must tithe-or more-of its total income to support the Great Commission if we wanted God's blessings.
           While I attended Columbia Bible College, many of my friends and fellow students became what is often called "faith missionaries" involved in independent missionary work. Over and over again we were called upon to provide help. I'm grateful we could, but it forced me realize the importance of how Southern Baptist do missions.
           My missionary friends had to spend half or two thirds of their time raising money or writing letters pleading for help. Missionaries, however, who are supported by the Cooperative Program can do the work God called them to do without worrying about their next check. I rejoice in this method for supporting our mission efforts because I know God gave Southern Baptist the Cooperative Program. It could not be a plan that came from the vision of man. It works too good not to be a gift from God!
           The CP provides a way for even the smallest congregation to be a vital part of the largest Great Commission organization known to man. The Cooperative Program helps churches support their own association, their state, their country, and then to reach to the ends of the earth.
           Our Lord has had His hand on the Taylor Baptist Association and our mission effort because we seek to carry out the Great Commission through this amazing partnership we call the Cooperative Program. In this cooperative endeavor, each church in our association is involved in reaching the world for Christ and meeting human needs in His name as He said in Matthew 25:34-36, 40.
           Our partnership in the Disaster Relief ministries, supporting our IMB missionaries, NAMB SendRelief and church starting, local church planting and revitalization, and our local work through FCA, Operation Christmas Child, Samaritan's Purse, Character Ed and so many other things we do are how we are "Working Together, Doing More!"
           I want to challenge each church in the Taylor Baptist Association to set a bold and sacrificial goal for your Lottie Moon gift for international missions this year. I pray that 100% of our churches participate in this special offering to reach the world for Christ. We have much to be thankful for this year because of God's blessings. Therefore, I must repeat the words of our Lord when He said, "To whom much is given, much is required."
           Let's serve and give with a grateful heart!

  • Annual Meeting:
    A great big thank you to Salem Baptist Church for hosting our 65th Annual Session on Monday night, Oct 17th. They served a delicious meal of fried pork chops and all the trimmings. There were 50 people present representing 11 churches. We heard presentations from the Florida Baptist Convention, the Florida Baptist Children's Home, the State Board of Missions, and Operation Christmas Child. Rev. Jay Watkins brought a special message encouraging us to be encouraged by the resources God has given us to share His word to those in our community.
  • Spot Light on Missions:
  • Walk Thru Bethlehem Friday, Dec. 2nd to Saturday, Dec. 3rd

Volunteers are needed to help it to be successful again this year, See Nikki Anderson for details. She can be contacted at walkthrubethlehem.32347@gmail.com
