Baptist Church Bulletin


I will remind myself every day how much depends on my being aware of God's 
influence in my life. I will accept his help in everything I do. Without 
such surrender to a superior wisdom, my life would be at the mercy of forces 
I cannot control.

Meditation will bring me closer to God and to the divine qualities in my 
fellowmen who are also his children. Prayer will turn my thoughts away from 
my problems. As I meditate and pray, I am letting go of them and learning 
that their solution does not depend on me alone.

"God is present in all his creatures, but all are not equally aware of His presence."





Comfort From the BIBLE
In the Bible God promises comfort to all who put their trust in the Lord Jesus Christ:

When you are troubled:
"Come unto Me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest"  (Matthew 11:28)

When you are lonely:
"Fear thou not; for I am with thee; yea, I am thy God.  I will strenghten thee; yea I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of My righteousness"  ( Isaiah 41:10)

When you are anxious:
"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything, by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known unto God.  And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus"  (Philippians 4:6, 7)

When you are afraid:
"God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble."  (Psalm 46:1)  "Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; thou art with me . . ."  (Psalm 23:4)

When you face trials:
"My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into various trials, knowing this, that the testing of your faith worketh  patience.  But let patience have her perfect work, that ye maybe perfect and entire, lacking nothing" 
(James 1:2-4).

When you are tempted:
"There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not permit you to be tempted above that ye are able, but will , with the temptation, also make the way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it"
(1 Corinthians 10:13)

When you need strength:
"My grace is sufficient for thee; for My strength is made perfect in weakness" (2 Corinthians 12:9)

When you need wisdom:
"If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, who giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not, and it shall be given him.  But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering"  (James 1:5, 6a).

When you need forgiveness:
"If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness" 
(1 John 1:9).

When you need assurance:
Jesus promises, "He that heareth My word, and believeth on Him that sent Me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but is passed from death unto life"  (John 5:24).

The Bible tells us how we can trust Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior:

Recognize that only God can save you . . not because you are "doing the best you can," not because of your religious efforts, but because of what jesus Christ did for you on the Cross of Calvery.  "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God - not of works, lest any man should boast"  (Ephesians 2:8, 9).

Confess that you cannot save yourself, that you are a sinner worthy of God's righteous judgement. "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through jesus Christ, our Lord"  (Romans 6:23).

Believe the good news that Christ died for you and that He arose from the dead and now lives to save all who come to him (Hebrews 7:25).  "Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved"  (Romans 10:13).

Rely upon God's sure promise, not upon your feelings.  By faith declare you are saved by the blood of Jesus Christ shed for the forgiveness of your sins.  Openly confess Him as Lord and Savior (Romans 10:9, 10).

If you have not received Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, we encourage you to do so now in the quietness of your heart.


Which Loved Best ?

"I love you Mother," said little John; Then, forgetting his work, his cap went on, And he was off to the garden swing, and left her wood and water to bring.

"I love you Mother," said rosy nell; "I love you better than tongue can tell."  Then she teased and pouted half the day Till her mother rejoiced when she went to play.

I love you, Mother,"said little Fan; "today I'll help you all I can;  How glad I am that school doesn't keep!"  So she rocked the baby till it fell asleep.  Then stepping softly, she fetched the broom, And swept the floor and tidied the room; busy and happy all day was she, helpful and happy as a child could be.

I love you, Mother," again they said - Three little children going to bed.  How do you think that Mother guessed Which of them loved her the best?



Children, Obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right.  Honour thy father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise;  That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on earth." (Eph 6:1, 2, 3)

Children, always be good, be kind, be pure, and be true.  Do nothing or say nothing you wouldn't want your father or mother to know.  And don't forget that Jesus sees everything you do, and hears every word you say.

When someone dares you to do a thing,  or calls you a coward for not doing it, just be brave and show them you are too wise a boy or girl to do anything wrong
