MISSION OPPORTUNITIES

I read that love to a child is spelled time. Love God more this month. Spend time with Him. Love your family this month. Spend time with them. Love your friends this month. Spend time with them. Look for ways you can show love to the lost, the hungry, and the poor. Share the Gospel, give, pray.

PRAYER Pray about how God wants us as a church and individually to show love to those around us.

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. Lamentations 3:21-23

 

WORSHIP & GIVING  

1 Chronicles 16:29 (NASB) Ascribe to the Lord the glory due His name; Bring an offering and come before Him; Worship the Lord in holy array. 

Worship God with us on Sunday mornings at 11am in the sanctuary where every other pew has been closed to allow for social distancing OR worship Him from the safety of your home. It’s not as important where you worship Him, but that you worship Him.

Please stay at home until you feel safe resuming in-person worship especially if you are over 65 years old or have health issues.

Our worship services include a time to share and pray for needs, to study the Sunday School lesson, a time of musical worship, and a time to hear the Word preached. All completed in only 1 hour.  After the worship service, take time to visit with your church family 6 feet apart on the grass lawns leaving the sidewalks open for people to walk on.

There are needs at the church, in Augusta, and world-wide that you can meet by giving to Lake Park. Part of the monies received pay expenses that continue at Lake Park. Part go to meet needs at various ministries throughout the world. That is the beauty of the Cooperative Program as Southern Baptists combine gifts to meet needs and share God’s love.

You can bring your offering to church on Sunday morning and drop it in the offering box in the foyer or mail it to the church at 211 Milledge Rd, Augusta, GA 30904, or drop it in the mail slot on the office entrance door anytime.

God is our refuge and strength, a tested help in times of trouble. And so we need not fear even if the world blows up and the mountains crumble into the sea. Let the oceans roar and foam; let the mountains tremble! PSALM 46: 1-3 (The Living Bible)
