NO LONGER SLAVES . . .
You split the sea so I could walk right through it
My fears are drowned in perfect love
You rescued me, so I could stand and say
I am a child of God
Galatians 4:7 “Therefore you are no longer a slave, but a son; and if a son, then an heir through God.”
We love singing No Longer Slaves because it reminds us that when we came to Christ and made Him Lord of our lives, we became sons and daughters of God, forever. We are saved and will live eternally with Christ.
We had a great crowd this past Sunday and we worshipped and praised our Lord in freedom, with our whole hearts. It was a little chilly, but we were soon warmed by the presence of the Holy Spirit and the fire He sets in our hearts.
We were challenged this week to pray for the ministry of our church. Praying that the word of the Lord will go out from here and people, having a hunger for God will flock to this place to hear the truth. Praying that we walk in God’s way and we bear fruit for His glory.
What a wonderful time to be a member at First Baptist Bridge City. The Lord is moving in and among us and I am grateful to be a part of this church.
MORE THAN JUST A MAN . . .
The choir and drama teams are working hard to bring this musical together to present the gospel to our church and our community.
We still need a few volunteers to work backstage with our actors on props and costume changes. Please let us know because we will need for you to come to some of the rehearsals to get a feel for what you will be doing.
We need your prayers more than anything. This is an opportunity for us to spread the gospel in a way that will touch hearts and change lives.
Be sure to invite someone to come. You will have two opportunities to see the musical:
Saturday, April 2, 2022 – 2:00 p.m. matinee
Sunday, April 3, 2022 – 6:00 p.m.
For His glory,
STEP INTO THE WATER………….
Wade out a little bit deeper
Wet your feet in the water of His love
Step into the water
Wade out a little bit deeper
Come join angels singin’
Praises to the Lamb of God
We raised the roof this past Sunday at FBCBC. I am so thankful for our church and the way we come together and open our hearts to worship.
We do know that just our coming together and raising our hands for worship is not pleasing to the Lord unless we are willing to live out that worship in our lives.
We have been given a challenge to live out our faith for all to see. A challenge to pray for our church and ourselves that we would be the light for all to see by our neighbors and our community.
“What you do says more about what you believe than what you say”.
Let’s be about the work of the Lord and show our families and friends just who this Jesus is. He lives in us!
MORE THAN JUST A MAN, EASTER MUSICAL ...
I want to take this opportunity to thank our choir for all of the dedication and hard work they have put in since August 2021.
There are several who have taken on the major drama parts and others who have stepped up to take other roles as needed. The entire choir has to be versatile, for this musical is different than the ones we’ve done in recent years, and they have stepped up to the challenge.
This choir is the heartbeat of the musical and there are many hours of hard work put in. Please remember them and all of us in your prayers. This work is being done to glorify our Father and we are all in one accord toward this endeavor.
For His glory,
KING OF MY HEART . . .
Let the King of my heart
Be the wind inside my sails
The anchor in the waves
Oh, He is my song.
When we think about the start of a new year, it usually comes along with making resolutions on something we want to change in our lives. The last few years have been so tumultuous that, as for me, the resolutions have changed and become much more than losing a few pounds, etc.
Our Pastor’s message yesterday hit real close to home. He wants our church family to rise up as a people of faith and effect our community for the Lord.
When is the last time I prayed about something other than a personal request for me or my family?
Do I read my Bible on a regular basis?
I believe those are very worthy resolutions to make, or very wise intentions.
If, in fact we act upon what we believe God is telling us to do, then we will rise up as that people of faith and our lives and the lives of our community will change.
MORE THAN JUST A MAN, EASTER MUSICAL
As we move quickly toward April, and our scheduled performances of our musical, we are getting into the “crunch time” mindset.
We are back at choir practice on Sundays and drama practices on Monday’s and Thursday’s. We are completely relying on God to guide and direct this musical, as it is a powerful evangelistic tool.
Please keep praying that we listen to His voice as He leads!
Through faith and for His glory,
