I continue to praise the Lord for His discerning Spirit and unity among us. On Sunday night we met together as a Family to discuss and vote on the Music/Media Minister job description. It was a wonderful time of discussion, questions, presentation, and prayer. I would like to say a special thank you to each of you who brought questions and discussion points. Every member of First Baptist Church matters and your voice is important to our Family times. Thank you for your openness with your questions and for being focused on preserving the unity of the Spirit. I don’t know that I have ever been more excited for church business meetings than I have been since coming back to FBC McAlester! Please continue to pray earnestly for our Music/Media Search Committee, our new Music/Media Pastor, and for the process before us. We are now receiving resumes for the position at www.fbcmcalester.org/hiring
On another note, please be praying for the Mac Students Ministry this weekend as they participate in the PBA Youth D-Now Weekend. The students will be meeting several times over Friday and Saturday to grow as disciples of Jesus. Pray for Lance and Sierra McAfee, Joe Watkins, and all of our other youth leaders as they lead our students through this time. Everyone is welcome to join us for these times of worship with the first service on Friday night at 7:00 in the sanctuary of FBC.
God is at work in our church. Let’s continue to pray, be on guard, stand firm in the faith, and love one another well in the power of the Spirit!
I Love You, Church!
