WAYMAKER . . .
Miracle worker, promise keeper
Light in the darkness
My God, that is who You are

I hope everyone enjoyed your Thanksgiving holiday.  Mine was filled with joy, laughter and tears.  Isn’t that what life is about?    

I lost a niece over the holiday and was thankful to be in the area where she lived to be able to help with the plans and some of the facilitating of her service.  The last 10 years or so of her life was filled with addiction and everything that comes along with that.  This was one of those situations where it wasn’t her choice that got her in this situation, but she was there none the less.  The entire family was affected by this addiction and the sadness of her loss was overwhelming.  

Kim was a fun-loving person and had a spirit that couldn’t be ignored.  So, she left with us many stories that we were able to share and enjoy and laugh about.  The room was completely packed with family and friends whose lives were touched by Kim in a positive way.  

The joy of it all was the fact that many years ago Kim accepted Christ as her Savior and so she left this world to go be with her Lord.  She also left a lot of love that we will always remember.  No more suffering for Kim.  

There was not one person in that room any worse or better than Kim.  We all have our issues and problems and that is why Jesus went to the cross.  We were thankful to be able to share that message that day and if Kim was watching, I know she was filled with joy that her life could bring some meaning and the message of Christ to others.

MORE THAN JUST A MAN, EASTER MUSICAL . . .
We had a wonderful choir practice this past Sunday and got a lot accomplished.  We are continuing drama practice this week, so anyone in the drama, please check your e-mail for the drama schedule.

Please let me know by text, if you will not be able to come to practice.  

We are asking our church family to please pray for us as we continue on with this endeavor in presenting the gospel to our church and community.

Through faith and For His glory,

AMAZING LOVE . . .
How can it be
That you my King would die for me
Amazing love, I know it’s true
And it’s my joy to honor You
In all I do, I honor You

An old, but good praise song that I think everyone can identify with.  Everyone, that is, who have accepted Christ as their Lord and Savior.  He is the rock we lean on and our shelter in the storms of life.

As we move into Thanksgiving week, we have much to be thankful for.  The Lord allows us to wake each day and gives us breath in our lungs.  He gives us the freedom to worship him daily and to join together each week to worship as a group.  He gives us our families and friends who love us and encourage us.  He gives us the beauty of nature to see and enjoy.  

As you can see, my mind today is on honoring and praising the Lord for all the gifts he has given us.  First and foremost, the gift of His Son, Jesus Christ.  

So, thank You Lord, this day and every day for being our Father and loving us so much.

Acts 17:28…..For in Him we live and move and exist.  As some of your own poets have said, “We are His offspring.”

MORE THAN JUST A MAN, EASTER MUSICAL

Please continue to pray for everyone involved in this musical.  We continue choir/drama practice through the weeks ahead and are excited about this presentation, this gift to our Lord.

Through faith and
For His glory,

DO IT AGAIN . . .
Another great day in the house of the Lord at FBCBC.  It is so refreshing to hear your voices singing loud and together as one voice.  

Each Sunday you come with your joys and sorrows, your hurt, your depression, your stress, your grief, etc.  There are people around us going through things that they don’t even mention.  It has been said that there is nothing like family and there can be great joy in these relationships.  But, the greatest pain and grief can come from our families, our children or our grandchildren.

These lyrics are especially comforting during these times:

“Your promise still stands
Great is your faithfulness
I’m still in Your hands
This is my confidence,
You’ve never failed”

And He never will.

Everyone is going through something, so always be loving and kind!

MORE THAN JUST A MAN, EASTER MUSICAL . . .
Our choir practice this past Sunday was very productive.  We sang through our songs and the hard work that everyone is putting in, is paying off.  

We are continuing with drama practice throughout the next few weeks and are e-mailing the schedules out through e-mail this week.  Be watching for these schedules and please let us know as quickly as possible if you can or cannot be there.  Please continue to pray for this musical and let us know if you can help in any way. 

The Lord provides!

Through faith and
For His glory,

I KNOW WHOM I HAVE BELIEVED . . .

“And am persuaded that He is able
To keep that which I committed
Unto Him, against that day!”

What a glorious day in the house of the Lord this past Sunday at FBCBC.  We started out the day with the celebration of baptism and then were truly blessed with our children singing.  What a way to start our worship service!!

The sermon on Sunday is one that will be hard to forget.  Our Pastor charged us to have a faith-based Christianity and not a rule-based Christianity.  

In Hebrews 11:1 . . . ”faith is the assurance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen”.  Biblical faith is not random, hopeful, wishful thinking, but has a solid and sure foundation, which is the word of God.  Romans 10:17. . . ”faith comes from hearing the word of God”.

I believe . . .

“Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine
Oh, what a fortress of glory divine
Heir of salvation, purchase of God
Born of His spirit, washed in His blood”

MORE THAN JUST A MAN, EASTER MUSICAL . . .

Speaking of faith, this musical that the Lord is calling us to do, portrays the power of the gospel which is the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ.   

We are believing that the Lord will provide everyone we need to make this presentation all it needs to be to make sure anyone in attendance gets the message of Jesus.  It will take many singers, actors, stage mangers, prop/costume/set designers, make-up artists and prayers!!

Please pray and consider what part you can play in this outreach ministry opportunity our church has to spread the gospel in our community.  

Through faith and
For His glory,
Debbie

SEND THE LIGHT . . .
Send the light, the blessed gospel light
Let it shine, from shore to shore
Send the light, the blessed gospel light
Let it shine, forevermore!

We had an awesome, very busy weekend at First Baptist Bridge City.  Our worship was wonderful and Holy-Spirit inspired.  We could hear your voices and you sounded like one voice.

Our Pastor’s sermon spoke of listening to God’s voice and coming together as one body to do God’s work.  We all have different opinions, but we are one body.  We all have different functions within that body.  

I am thankful that we have the programs to be able to reach out into the community with love and help them in different ways.  The Pumpkin Patch has been a wonderful tool to see some of the people in our community and offer a little time of joy and fun for their families.  Another wonderful program is The First Saturday where we have been able to give away school supplies, coats, food, Bibles, etc. and a special time to pray for any needs they may have.

I pray God continues to bless our church and bring us opportunities to grow together and meet the needs of our neighbors!

MORE THAN JUST A MAN, EASTER MUSICAL . . .
We didn’t have choir practice this past Sunday, but will start meeting again next Sunday, November 7th in the choir room.  

We will begin holding some drama practices starting this week.  Those of you who have parts assigned, we will contact you with practice times.

This Easter musical is another way we can reach our community.  The gospel will be told through this presentation.  It will give an opportunity for people who may not attend a church or regular worship service, to come and hear the gospel through music and drama.  Hearts will be touched!

What a great church we have, with many talented people ready to serve!!

For His glory, Debbie
