This entry was posted at KJV Blog Directory today. Beth is safely back at school, and our boys are coming home today for a week. I hope to get back to regular posting again next week!
On Sunday night, January 1st, we had Vision Night at People's Baptist Church.
Our pastor (who also happens to be my husband!) presented his vision
for our church this year. I knew of a couple of things he had planned,
due to proof-reading the calendar, but I didn't know about everything.
By the end of the evening, I was pretty excited about this year too!
have two special meetings planned: a Family Conference in February and
the 20th anniversary of our church in September. We also have Vacation
Bible School and Family Camp this summer, as well as our teens planning
to attend the youth conference at North Valley Baptist Church
in Santa Clara, California, in June. Our ladies are going to a ladies'
retreat in Vancouver in April, as well as having our annual
Mother/Daughter Tea and Christmas Fellowship. We have some activities
planned for our homeschool families and senior saints (whom my husband
dubbed Just Older Youth - JOY). We'll continue to have quarterly SNAC
activities, and add PBCKidz, children in grades 1-6. We'll have them
into our home and play some games and such; just simple things to keep
the teens and children close to their pastor.
We saw 15
souls saved last year, many of those being children in our bus
ministry. By the way, we moved our bus ministry to Wednesday nights in
2011. We began the year running about 20 on the bus, and now we have an
average of 50 each week.
Our theme for the year is
Walking By Faith. We're looking forward to our faith growing, but that
also means we may have some trials of our faith. In those trials,
though, we know the Lord will be in the midst of them and will use them
for our growth. Whatever the year brings, my husband is leading us to
commit ourselves to the Lord and trust His heart for us.
