Events

July 14th, 2024, will be our next quarterly Business conference following the morning worship service.  Our business conference we will discuss our homecoming the first Sunday in October, the next project of work to be done on the church, the purchase of a new water cooler for the church replacing the one that is not working, whether we want to retain the current design on our Church sign or change it to something more up to date.

June 16th 2024, We will start a five-part series sermon on “The Chruch, do we still need it” this is a new venture for me as I do not normally do series sermons, I tend to preach single sermons.  I believe it is time that we look at what the Church is supposed to be.  I believe we have lost sight of the purpose of the Church.  The Church has a singular purpose that is to follow the calling given by God.  Somehow, we have forgotten that what it is all about, and who we are to serve in the Church, who’s in charge of the Church.  I pray that you will enjoy the series, and that you will as I have, being reminded of what the bride of Christ, the Body of Christ, the people of God are to respond to a changing world, and social climate.  Come and hear what the Lord has to tell us.

Early notice, on May 4th, 2024, at 12:00 noon we will have the Memorial Service for Sister Phileta Smith, at the Church, there will lunch for the family following the service.  Sis. Phileta is the wife of the former Pastor of Tolosa Baptist Church, Bro. Hershell Smith.  Sis. Phileta went home to be with the Lord on Sunday the 14th of April 2024 at 8pm.  We will miss this wonderful lady whose faithfulness, and love for the Lord, central to who she was.  Her straight face witty humor was awesome,  Please pray for the Family she is leaving behind, they will need your prayers for some time to come, as they deal with her absence, but thankful God has seen to it that through their love for the Lord, all their children have come to know the same Lord and savior as she did, and they will join her in their own time, then there will be no more parting, no more tears, and no more pain.
