The church is not a social club, country club, or civic organization. We are set apart by one resounding declaration of our involvement—Together, Jesus is Lord! This statement drives us to fulfill our Lord’s commissioning. The church is called to love the Lord our God with everything that we are and to love our neighbors as ourselves. So we love God and we love others. Being a church member means that you are more than just a name on a roll sheet. It means we have purpose together and we are all on the same team working for a common goal. Beginning this Sunday and running for the next 4 Sundays, I will begin an intense look at what it means to be a church member. We will look at the reasons why “You Belong” at First Baptist Church of McAlester. While the Bible does not use the words “become a member”, “joining a church” or “church membership”, we can glean from Scripture a clear calling to be a part of a local body of believers. This Sunday I will outline some key Scriptural evidences of this fact. This series' focus will conclude on May 19th with a huge focus day on church membership. I will share more details about that schedule soon. In the meantime, be praying and preparing your heart as you come and are encouraged to know why “You Belong”! 

 I am so excited to go to Falls Creek this weekend with a few men from FBC for the Men’s Retreat! If you are planning to attend, we will be contacting you this week to find out who is leaving and when. For those of you who are able, we will plan to leave as a larger group at 8:00 AM on Friday morning. Please be praying for our men as we take off for this time of challenge, encouragement, and refreshment. 

 I Love You, Church!

Pastor Rusty
