  • Message from Henry Cannington
           When someone mentions the word bold, what comes to your mind? Do you think about Acts 1:8 or Mark 16:15 -16. That is what comes to my mind when I consider the Taylor Baptist Association plans for the summer of 2024.
           Because the LordI cannot think of a more significant time for God's people to take seriously the bold command to reach out and touch the lives of lost and unchurched people with the gospel of Jesus Christ. The key that I believe will unlock the door to reaching needy and unchurched people is whether we take seriously the promises of Acts 1:8. If we were to employ the Holy Spirit empowered boldness utilized by that first century church, our churches would be able to attack this sin-filled world with God's good news.
           During this summer, our Taylor Baptist churches are seeking to boldly make a difference in our community by using four major tools. Weekly God encountering worship services, Serve Taylor Mission Experience on July 13th, exciting Vacation Bible Schools for children, and various youth activities are some tools we plan to boldly use to connect our community with the God Who loves them.
           As we boldly minister to our community this summer, we know ministry demands compassion. Jesus cared for people. Like Jesus, we must be moved with compassion (Mark 6:34).We also know that ministry is personal. Our churches are filled with caring people. Finally, the desire of every Christian in our churches is to see everyone in Taylor County come to know God and His love.
           I want to challenge each of our churches to get connected to this united effort of Serving Taylor with one message of God's love that promises to change lives now and for eternity. Remember, ministry is a part of all we do because of who we are as Christians. As we serve Christ through ministry opportunities, others will grow in their understanding of the compassion and mission of Christ.
