Connect Student Ministry

Well, during my time serving in ministry, I have learned it is very important to plan things well and it is equally important to be willing to change your plan when the Holy Spirit leads elsewhere. We have pretty consistently stuck with going through our lesson series on the building blocks of our faith on Wednesdays nights. However, on a few occasions over the past two months, God has impressed on my heart to take the conversation in a different direction. This last week one of the other leaders suggested we talk about the tragedy in Sutherland Springs. This was a good night where the students felt like they could open up about their feelings on the situation. We were able to talk about anger and frustrations and how God wants us to deal with these issues. It is exciting to see how God has used these conversations. There is one other encouraging thing with which I would like to leave you: Sometimes, as a student pastor, it is hard to fully convey all that God is doing in the student ministry without taking hours to write out all the details. However, I feel this one story does not need much explanation. A few weeks ago in Sunday school, one of the students said that they now lay in bed on Saturday nights excited that they get to go to church the next day. For this I must say thank you to God and to all of you who take time to pray for the students and this ministry. Please continue to do so.

The Facilities and Grounds team will be continuing work on the functionality, safety, and security of our nursery and preschool areas. There is a lot of excitement about, what has already been done in these areas and the plans for the near future, so come be a part.

The excitement for our very first Children’s Church Worship Service on Sunday December 3rd is also building. We will be preparing an inviting environment in part of the Fellowship Hall for our children to have a creative time of praise, worship, and learning about God’s word. I don’t know what all my lovely wife has in mind yet, but I know we will be doing our part to help make it a great success.

If you would like to help with any of our ongoing projects, please give me (Darren) a call at 713-417-0365. If I don’t answer, please leave me a message or send me a text 😉

Missions Lottie Moon Christmas Offering for International Missions

Posted on : 21-12-2017 | By : wmb | In : Uncategorized

In Southern Baptist life December is the month when we focus on International missions. Through prayer and the annual Lottie Moon Christmas offering Southern Baptists worldwide provide encouragement and support for the 3596 missionaries serving around the world, some in very remote and dangerous areas. These men and women, and in many cases their families, live among those they serve and witness and minister to. THE GOSPEL IS THE GOAL!

The International Mission Board has a single goal: take the gospel of Jesus Christ to the lost people of the world. There are over 2.8 billion people who have never heard the hope of the gospel. IMB missionaries, men and women called by God to the mission field, live in global cities (London, Mexico City) and hard-to-access places (Nepal, North Africa, Middle East) around the world. In Jesus name their presence, love, and message are making a difference in many lives. Praise God! Our prayers and financial support help them to spread the gospel, teach new believers, train pastors and teachers, and plant new churches. Please be generous in your offering and sacrificial in your prayers for them and those they serve.
The designated week of prayer is December 3-10. We will be receiving the LMCO all during the month of December.
