Every Sunday throughout the month of May has
been a special emphasis day at First Baptist
Church. The first Sunday of the month was
devoted to honoring our graduates from the Class
of 2014. On the second Sunday in May, we
honored our mothers with a special celebration
service. Last Sunday, we turned our attention to
the Senior Adults in our church to honor them for
their service to our Lord, our church, and our
community. This Sunday, will be a special
Memorial Day Service to remember the men and
women who died while serving in the United
States Armed Forces. The service will include
several patriotic musical selections and a minimusical presented by the Sanctuary Choir. Make
plans to bring your entire family and join us for
this time of remembrance.
Southern Revelation Gospel Quartet
Make plans to join us on Sunday, July 13 at
11:00 a.m. for a concert featuring the Southern
Revelation Gospel Quartet. The group will bring a
fresh touch to the old classic hymns that we enjoy
hearing so much and add some new things to show
they keep up with today’s gospel music. In
addition to the classic sound of quartet harmony,
you will enjoy the group’s playful antics. Most of
all, the group will remind us through song that
there is nothing more important than the message
of the grace of God. Mark your calendars for this
event and bring a friend!
Youth Ministry
This past Sunday concluded Our Blessed Hope Bible study. We discussed the Resurrection body, the Final
Judgment, the Lake of Fire, and the New Heaven & the New Earth. We had quite a lengthy discussion because
any time you discuss eternity, you can be sure it will take a long time! Even though we may not know or
understand all the fine details, we can rest assured knowing the outcome is never in doubt. Jesus wins, and if
we have put our faith in Him as our Lord and Savior, we too will receive “praise and glory and honor at the
revelation of Jesus Christ” (1 Pet. 1:7).
I had a great time doing this Bible study with you all, and I would like to thank everyone for participating. I
enjoyed all the questions and answers and the back-and-forth we had—I think we all learned a lot, and I would
love to do a similar Bible study in the future.
The wonderful thing about studying the Bible—no matter the topic—is the spiritual growth that comes about as
a result of immersing ourselves in God’s Word. Our God has reached out to us as His children in an attempt to
establish a loving, eternal relationship; as believers, we have a duty to reciprocate His outreach by placing our
faith totally in Him and relating to Him directly through Bible study and prayer.
Even in the times of life when turbulence comes about, we must never forsake the reason for which we were
created—to have a faithful, loving relationship with Jesus Christ as our Creator, Savior, and Sustainer—and the
only way we can thoroughly relate to Him is through consistent communication with Him through Bible study
and prayer.
Y’all are the best!

Dear First Baptist Church,
Thank you so much for the beautiful Bible and book! Thank y’all for teaching me about the love of Christ and
how important my relationship with Him is. Over the years, y’all have blessed me tremendously. I can’t
explain how much y’all impacted my life and made me a better lady. I know I can always return home to my
church family. Thank you!!
Love,
Kali Dawn Rogers
