Members of the Life United Pentecostal Church on Pipkin Road in Hinesville are preparing for three big events. They have a lot to be thankful and excited about.
LUDOWICI - On Oct. 28, 2001, the First Baptist Church here burned to the ground. The fire, which was thought to have been due to an electrical wiring problem, destroyed the worship center and the educational building.
Matt 1:20 ... the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.
As travel costs soar, businesses in Savannah and across the nation are rethinking face-to-face meetings.
Elim Baptist Church will hold a children's crusade called Champion's for Christ on Aug. 9-10, featuring a guest chalk artist.
Today we are in a time of increasing uncertainty. Nowhere is that more evident than in Healthcare. Healthcare costs continue to rise almost as fast as gasoline prices and many people cannot afford healthcare insurance. Hospitalization costs can drive a family into bankruptcy. I believe our churches can accept a new role to help members gain access to healthcare.
When he arrived in Liberty County for his new military assignment, little did he know he would eventually become a pastor in this county. Since January 2008, Curtis Thomas has served as the pastor of the Friendship Missionary Baptist Church of Walthourville.
Journey Church has decided to branch out from its main campus in Bloomingdale to plant new roots in Hinesville.
The women's ministry of Gum Branch Baptist Church is preparing for yet another big event. They are eagerly anticipating their upcoming simulcast with nationally known author and speaker Beth Moore, who partners with LifeWay to conduct the simulcasts.
In this day and time, people have become extremely busy. One might say too busy. We have too many things to do and not enough time to do them.
Sunday, July 27, will mark a milestone in the history of the Good Shepherd Missionary Baptist Church. Members will be moving from their present sanctuary at 71 Kent Road in Walthourville to 4424 Oglethorpe Highway West in Allenhurst.
My nephew David recently turned 5. He is extremely bright, kind and talkative.
In addition to building the members spiritually, this pastor and church family have erected a new sanctuary. Established six years ago, the church is preparing for the dedication of the sanctuary.
In addition to his myriad talents, this busy pastor has just released his first book.
In the times that we live in, people have become so busy with the everyday affairs that it is easy for the family as a unit to suffer.
The Bible is God's word. Not everyone wants to follow what it says, but it still is God's word.
The Apostle Paul says in Philippians 3:14, "I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus."
It's another new year, and our county's spiritual leaders are busy implementing goals to move their churches forward.
We have just celebrated one of the most sacred times on the Christian calendar - the birth of Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world.
Another new year has come.
The new year has begun and it is a great time to change your life for the better. The New Year's resolutions may not have lasted very long or may soon be only a memory. The best way to have a great year and life is to put God in your life, in the proper place.
"For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief." - Proverbs 24:16
Have you ever wished you could go back and do things differently? Have you ever wished that you could go back in time and make different decisions that took you to places that you would rather not be?
You can admit it. At the end of the day, when you see all of the wrapping paper on the floor, and all of the gifts have been opened (and some are already broken), you have at some point thought or said, "Is that all?"
As this year winds to an end, it is gives each person time to look back not only on the past year but their entire lives. To the young, it seems that life will last forever, but to those who are older, the fact that life will not last forever becomes more apparent with each passing year. In fact the years seem to be rushing by, heading to eternity.
During this season, I'd like to encourage each of us to find Christ in Christmas.
The celebration continues 151 years later.
This time of year, Christians celebrate the coming to Earth of a savior - Jesus Christ, our Lord.
We are only a few days away from Christmas Day. I have to admit a couple of things to you. I love the Christmas season, and everything about it. Even as I think about the empty chairs and dinner table, and still am enamored by the lights, trees, decorations, music and pageantry of it all.
What gift are you looking for this year? Which one would be the greatest ever? Would it be a new car, a house or maybe a trip to some exotic place?
