           We don't have to read far in the Word of God before encountering evil. We live in a dark and dirty world. Oh, there are beautiful things and lovely people, but there's always that undercurrent of immorality depravity's dangerous undertow. You just can't move away from it. No one is immune to it not you, not me, or any in our fie ld of ministry.
           But depravity doesn't win it won't in the end, and it doesn't have to today. Sin is powerful! "But even greater is God's wonderful grace" (Romans 5:17). Because we here in the Taylor Baptist Association have a grace mission, our chur ches offer a lifesaving ministry that rescues struggling people from sin's undertow. Every year, many people caught in the undertow of sin hear about Jesus through what we do here in the TBA. Joy floods my heart every year when someone experiences God's saving grace that rescues them from sin's undertow!!!
           Your gifts this year made it possible for drowning individuals in our area to discover that it's never too late to be rescued and safe because of God's amazing grace. The broken homes, promiscuity, drunkenness, and abuses of every kind touches the children, youth, and adults daily we see coming through our doors each week. But your gifts and prayers for missions and our ministries make it possible for people caught in sin's undertow to become anchored to God's grace.
           After visiting all of our churches in the association, my heart rejoiced in seeing the tremendous work of all of our churches and the dedicated ministry of all our pastors. As Paul said, "Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honor, especially they who labor in the word and doctrine" (1 Timothy 5:17). What a joy it is to have pastors who faithfully ?preach the Word!"
           Thank you for all your gifts of love to the Lord through the ministry here TBA. Remember, your giving shows how you don't abandon others to the undertow.

           Anchored to the Rock of Ages,
           Henry B. Cannington

  • TBA Missions Corner
           100% of our TBA churches ministered to our community and around the world in an incredible way during the month of December. From Operation Christmas Child to amazingly giving to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering, all of our TBA churches touched the world for the gospel sake. Many in our community attended the live nativity scene performed downtown by New Home, the moving children's program at Crosspoint, thrilling cantatas by several of our churches, children's activities by more churches than I can say, and plays by most of our other churches sharing the true meaning of Christmas. In this time of covid, all of our churches stepped forward and shared, food, gifts, and the joy of Christmas to this hurting world. Thank you sooooooooo much for sharing the hope Christmas brings to all who will trust in the God Who came in human flesh!
  • Pastor's Roundtable
           Amazing! That word describes the Pastor's Roundtable!!! As we kicked off our monthly gathering of TBA pastors last month, I watched God's servants quickly develop into what the Bible describes as a "Koinonia." I witnessed these men of God shoulder to shoulder bearing each other's burdens. I feel our pastors gain much courage and strength by meeting with their fellow encouragement partners. Pastors...mark your calendars on January 11, 2021 at 9:00am and join us for this time of "Koinonia." We need you!!!
  • Operation Christmas Child
           Our Suwannee Valley Area team would like to express our love to all of the churches, organizations, and individuals who donated shoeboxes this year. We missed all the hugs, pats on the back, and holding hands in prayer that have always been a part of our National Collection Week. The pandemic, however, did not dampen the spirit of love expressed with each shoebox you donated. Because of your efforts, 15,867 shoeboxes were collected in the Suwannee Valley area and that means that 15,867 children will get to hear the gospel of Jesus Christ. This total does not reflect the shoeboxes that were built online. We will get those totals at a later date. To God Be the Glory!!!!!!!
