Sisters and brothers,
Happy Monday to all! Yesterday our emphasis in worship was peace. We learned from Isaiah 9, Luke 2, and Romans 5 that peace with God and others comes only through Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace. Peace with God through Jesus ends the hostilities between those who believe and righteous God. Peace with God through Jesus provides eternal friendship between holy God and His former enemies. Through Jesus, God becomes our Father and we become His children. Peace with God through Jesus can provide internal peace during chaotic circumstances. Peace with God through Jesus provides the only means to truly bring peace on earth among people. Yes, let there be peace on earth and let it begin in me. Peace with God and others comes only through Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace.
East Madison Baptist Church will have a Christmas Eve service at 5:00 PM and a Christmas Day service at 10:00 AM. Our New Year’s Day service will be at 10:45 PM. There will be no Bible Study on Christmas Day or New Year’s Day.
During the month of December, we will be taking up the Lottie Moon Offering for International Missions. Lottie Moon offering envelopes and prayer guides are on the table in the back of the sanctuary by the offering box.
Remember to keep praying continually for each other.
Love being your pastor!
Bob Ray, Pastor, East Madison Baptist Church
