Join us for a free showing of “God’s Not Dead” at North Anderson Baptist Church September 28th at 5pm.
Our Annual Labor Day Picnic will be Sunday, August 31st at Darwin Wright Park, Shelter #2.
We will start gathering and setting up food tables at 10am and our services will start at 11am and include a devotion by Rev. John Dill, Director of Missions for the Saluda Baptist Association, and baptisms in the lake.
Start planning your “Picnic Baskets” now. Meat, vegetables, desserts, you know, picnic food. Bring enough food for your family and visitors. We will spread it all out and have a Picnic Basket sharing and fellowshipping after the baptisms. (church is supplying paper products, tea and water). If you have lawn games bring them with you. Don’t forget lawn chairs!
A brand new church year starts this month. This is a time to renew your faith the Lord and to His church. What is God going to do with your life this year? How does He desire to use you for His Kingdom’s work? Whatever God says to you and me my prayer is that we will be willing and obedient servants who respond with a, “Yes, Lord!” May our response be just that in this new church year. I want to introduce you to your deacon leadership: Chairman, Matt Ball; Vice-Chairman, Matt George; and Secretary, BJ Sharp. Pray for them and each of the following deacons this year: Bruce Brown, Sean Lister, Ray Manley, Rick Riendeau, Matt White, Bo Evans, Josh Stamps, Jerry Wilson, and Don Johnson.
We have already gone back to having a regular Sunday night worship service at least through December. We pray that you will plan to be there and bring your family; there is a children’s ministry, a youth ministry and a college ministry going on along with the nursery for the little ones. Plan to worship with us on Sunday evenings from 6-7pm. At times we will have an all-church fellowship or a movie night but we are excited for what God will do for His church. Be a part!
Coming this fall there will be a strong emphasis on Youth and College ministries. God has given us a great line-up of Godly leadership in both these critical areas of our church. Our Youth and College Day will be on Sunday, November 16th worship time. Please pray for the youth and college ministries of the church.
We have been truly blessed by having our Deaf Ministry, lead by Rev. Billy Sistrunk and assisted by both Julia Bramlett and Becky Walker as interpreters. God has been doing great things in this special group of our congregation. We want to thank them all for the loving spirit they have shown to each of us in the hearing congregation. What a great fellowship God has given us.
Let’s praise God for all He has done in and through us for God’s glory and the expansion of His Kingdom.
