  • Message from Henry Cannington
           Jesus' final words to His followers in the Gospel of Matthew states clearly what He wants us to be as His people. I believe the Great Commission starts in verse 18: "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and earth. Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age" (Matthew 28:18-20). Upon the authority of Jesus, our mandate is to take the gospel to the world.
           One of the cool things that our Taylor Baptist Association of churches are doing this month is our SERVE TAYLOR mission experience on July the 13th. This exciting event is to help all our churches to get focused on the main thing, accomplishing Jesus' Great Commission in our own context that is unique to each individual body of believers.
           Our area churches in the Taylor Baptist Association plan to make an impact throughout Taylor County by serving our neighbors with acts of God's love. Here are just some of the activities our churches will be doing.
    • Children's Activities- Games, Bible Stories, Bounce House
    • Senior Adult Activities- Visits, do crafts, special activities
    • Home/Repairs- Helping with storm damage and doing small repairs
    • Yard Work Teams- Raking, mowing, trimming
    • Block Parties- Amazing games and excitement for all
    • Beach Cleanup- Keeping Keaton Beach beautiful
    • Mt. Gilead Hiking Trail Care- Helping visitors enjoy hiking, biking, and wildlife viewing
    • Community Outreach- Ministries such as car wash, laundromat, no sale yard sale, food distribution.

           Because Jesus made it clear why our churches exist, the underlying premise for every church's purpose is to take the gospel to the world. But how do we do that? Well, that's different for each church. Our purpose is the same. The message is the same. Through our SERVE TAYLOR mission experience, each of our churches plan to show God's love to our friends and neighbors through acts of love.
           As you look at this newsletter, you will quickly discover the schedule for this day and contact information. Our churches want to communicate and connect with all church members and those outside of the church if we are going to see the gospel impact our culture and transform the lives of people who need God's love.
