Sunday Morning's Message
It is my pleasure to welcome Travis Ward and Jeff Johnson into the deacon ministry here at Buffalo Baptist Church. They were ordained on June 1st and are ready to serve.
Please keep these men in your prayers as they begin this ministry. Satan will attempt to deceive and destroy these men; they need God's protection.
Congratulations On Your New Life
On September 17, 2014 we witnessed Lindsey Shelton get baptized. She committed her life to the Lord some time back but made it public during our trip to MFUGE and then on the 17th through her baptism before the church.
On Sunday, August 3, 2014, we were able to see the baptismal waters stir yet again as we celebrated with two new believers. Both Jonathan Berry and Joe Lynott came to realizations in their lives that neither had made a true profession of faith. Both had gone through the motions earlier in their lives and had even been baptized. Through God's move, both in different settings came to the reality that they had not placed their faith truly into Jesus the Christ.
Continue to pray for these two men as they begin their journey in follow Jesus as their Lord and Savior.
This year our teens went to the University of the Cumberlands to work in missions. Our teens woke up to a morning quiet time followed by breakfast. After breakfast the youth went to their track teams and had Bible study together. After that they were released to go to send off which consisted of both fun and worship. From there they went to their ministry sites from 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. each day. As they returned to campus they had a little free time. Each evening, the teens would then meet back up for a time of worship and a sermon by the camp minister. To end the evening, they staff would have some kind of fun games planned for the kids. All in all, each day was packed full.
We had three teens commit their lives to Christ as Lord and Savior. We also had one recommit his life saying it had been a long time since he had walked closely with God.
2014 VBS - Agency D3
This year's VBS was a success. Our numbers were not what we were looking for, however, the one on one interaction proved to be more valuable. Each kid left with the basics of who Jesus is. They learned that Jesus was more than just a good man. That He was God's Son. They also learned about His death and resurrection. And as they ended the week the were challenged to go and share what they had learned.
We thank God for His blessings and what this week of VBS meant to us as a body of believers. We also pray that God would get a hold of these kids and change their lives forever.
