This Sunday is it! The Grand Opening of The Gathering Place and the W.A. Treadwell History Center! God has been so gracious to allow us the blessing of creating such a wonderful multipurpose space. Primary among its usage will be creating a more welcoming environment for all of our family and friends that join us for our gathering times. I want to remind you—a building is only a tool for the work of the Kingdom; it will only truly become an effective space through people. You are the key to a welcoming environment at First Baptist Church. I want to encourage you to own that truth. In the years ahead, let's utilize the space as one of the tools the Lord has granted us for ministry. Think creatively about how God can work in this space. Host get togethers, community impact groups, showers, family reunions, small group gatherings, create new ministries in the space, allow it to be a space that gets used often for Kingdom work. I am so excited to see what entrepreneurial ministries begin by the Lord’s leadership!

Don’t forget this—Sunday’s schedule is quite different. Here is a breakdown:

9:00 AM - Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting of The Gathering Place and W. A. Treadwell History Center in the East Parking Lot

9:00-9:45 AM - Light Breakfast in the Fellowship

9:45 AM - Childrens Sunday School and others will meet in the Fellowship Hall for a Church Membership Course

10:45 AM - Break

11:15 AM - All Together Worship Celebration in the Sanctuary

If you are unable to attend this Sunday, I want to invite you to join us this Wednesday evening for a pre-introduction to our Church Membership Course in the Fellowship Hall. The meal will begin at 5:00 followed by the course at 5:45. We should conclude by 6:30. 

 What an exciting time in the life of First Baptist Church! I am honored to serve as her pastor during this season, and I can’t wait to continue this journey with you, my church family!

God is at work, and it’s a great day to be family at First Baptist McAlester!

 I Love You, Church!

 Pastor Rusty
