Today, I have three things to share with you: this week’s message, a personal invitation and a “thank you” for your support.
Psalms 133:1 says, “Behold how good and how pleasant it is for brethern to dwell together in unity.”
This tells us we need to work together as brothers to make a difference in our community. We can preach all day long, but the bottom line is this: What are we doing to better and assist the people of our community? We are all people of God. We all have gifts, skills, knowledge and abilities and must understand they should be used to help others. True blessings are things you do to help others, not just things you receive. This is a wonderful place to live and enjoy life and, just in case you did not notice, things are getting better.
I’m inviting you to the United Ministerial Alliance’s “Youth Extravaganza” at 5 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 30, at Baconton Baptist Church in Walthourville. Youth choirs from the community will perform. This is not a competition, just a gathering to praise God. There is no registration fee. Just e-mail the UMA at or log onto our Facebook page to RSVP. We also will present the Dr. Smiley award for outstanding community service to the Rev. B.T. Smith.
I want to thank God and all of you for your support of the UMA during the past three years. We have grown together and have increased our community ministry, responsibility and communication through the clergy network. As I transition out of the presidency of this wonderful organization, I personally thank you for your support, assistance, prayers and time. It has been an honor and a privilege to serve. I will continue to serve as a member and I ask for your continued support and prayers for our new president as he or she assumes this role.
I pray that we can continue to work together, pray together and support community members together. We can do it together. God bless you and yours.

Andrews is president of the United Ministerial Alliance and a member of Mt. Carmel Ministries.
