We are getting close to hosting the Southern Baptists of Texas Bible Conference and Annual Meeting November 13-15. Church family, please take note of two very important items related to this event:
- We still need more volunteers. If you can help, please contact Diane Eppler at 512-343-7763 ext 662 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
- You are invited to attend both the Bible Conference and the Annual Meeting.
The Bible Conference begins Sunday evening, November 14, at 5:40pm and lasts until 8:30pm. It will be a wonderful time of worshipping and hearing the Word of God preached. One of the highlights of the evening will be the 40-member choir from Southwestern Seminary singing Amazing Grace in their native languages. You just cannot miss this. Please make an effort to come. Not only will you be blessed, you will also be supporting our state convention. The Bible Conference will continue on Monday beginning at 9:00am with worship, breakout sessions, and preaching. Dr. Steve Gaines, the current president of the SBC, will preach at 3:00pm. He is one of the most Spirit-anointed men of God I have ever heard.
On Monday night the Annual Meeting, which is the business conference portion of this event, begins. While you are welcome to attend, keep in mind that business such as reports and voting will be conducted. The Annual Meeting continues through the day on Tuesday.
On Tuesday evening at 6:40pm we will have a time of prayer. Pastor Gregg Matte from FBC Houston will preach, and contemporary Christian artist Jeremy Camp will give a free concert. It will be an amazing evening. We are expecting an overflow crowd, so if you are interested in coming, please arrive early.
If you have questions about attending any of the SBTC events, please ask one of our staff and let us help you.
On Sunday we will continue our CROSSFIT study in both Connect Group and worship. My sermon is entitled “Your Story,” and the text is John 9. Take some time this weekend to read this amazing chapter in God’s Word, and pray for me as I preach the message God has placed on my heart.
Also, on Sunday, take a moment to peruse the Local Missions Fair in the ministry mall. We will have numerous ministry booths set up. Ask God which one of these ministries He wants you to participate in and then sign up!
Have a great weekend.
