Happy Monday, May 10, 2021 church!

Sisters and brothers,

Happy Monday to all! I want to thank Mark Millman for preaching for me yesterday. Mark is a good friend to East Madison and works hard all over the state to see places where new outreaches can start and to encourage pastors and church planters. Also, thank you Pete for helping everything to run smoothly with worship team members and myself being gone. I also want to wish all the moms a belated “Happy Mother’s Day.”  I hope each of you had a great day. I know for some, Mother’s Day can hold sadness because of the loss of a mom, because some want or wanted to be a mom but that has not happened, or some other very personal reasons. I hope each of you that might be in that situation felt a special sense of God’s loving presence.

We will be celebrating the Lord’s Supper during our worship time next Sunday morning, May 16, 2021. Hopefully, we will be able to meet outside in our parking lot.

During the weeks between Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, we are participating with CareNet Pregnancy Center of Dane County in the Baby Bottle Campaign to help support this wonderful ministry. Baby bottles will be available next Sunday for you to take. We ask you use these to collect on offering which we shall take to them after Father’s Day. Also, if you would like to pick up a baby bottle before then to start, just stop by the church building during the week.

We will be concluding our virtual Bible Study of the book of Galatians this Wednesday, May 12th at 6:30 PM. We will be studying Galatians 6.

Remember to keep praying continually for each other.

Bob Ray, Pastor, East Madison Baptist Church
