New Paradise Baptist Church has been blessed to have a wonderful group of Young Adults, Youth and Children. The weekend started out with the Annual YAYC Offering Up Praise on Friday night. Although, I have reached the age where I’m not into HipHop music; the gospel groups that came were really good; Shout out to Theophilus, GeeZus Crew and Jarrell Davis. The NPBC YA Praise Team is a GREAT BLESSING to this Church. They are hands down truly devoted to the Lord’s Work and preparing to Spoudazo! The Offering Up Praise Night was so uplifting not only to me, but to all that were in attendance, both young and older. A great Big Thank You to all who participated. We were blessed to have our very own Sis. Kenya bless us with her presence and the presence of some beautiful young people from Friendship Baptist Church in Seaside, CA where Dr. Anthony Dunham is the Pastor. Thank you for sharing in the YAYC Annual Weekend.
Shout out to the Greatest YAYC Advisers! Denise, Tina, Everett, Robert & Rev. Long! God bless you all for Spoudazoing! Also, I am so proud of our YAYC President Tatiana Walker, I have witnessed her maturation during this year.
Sunday was a highly charged day beginning with Church School, The Lesson came from Isaiah 65:17-25, “The Glorious New Creation.” A powerful lesson that really hit home with the Church School Students. Attendance was very good. I am concerned about those who feel they don’t need to be taught.
Morning Worship was again a tremendous blessing. The Male Chorus blessed us again, Shout out to Bro. Carl Overstreet and the Male Praise Team! I thank God for the Visitors who blessed us with their presence. And as always I praise God for our Saints of Wisdom – Dea. Fred Williams, Mother Griffin, Mother Oliver, Mother Richardson, Bro. Miller, Mother Bowman, Mother Brown, Mother Lavoy, Mother Washington, Mother Pitre, Mother Cunningham & Mother Lovett.
I continued in the series “Isaac: From Birth To Glory” I came from Genesis 26:12-25 “Reaping the Results of God’s Promises:”
26:12-14 Proof of God’s Promise
26:15-22 Obstacles, Road Blocks & Pitfalls
26:23-25 Responding In Worship
The greatest news of the was we had 2 that came as Candidates for Baptism! Hallelujah!!! The Week of Worship ended with probably one of the most wonderful YAYC Musical’s since I have been here as Pastor. Thank you YAYC! You out did yourselves. Tati, Tremendous! Soloists, Tremendous, Musicians, Tremendous; Advisors, Tremendous, Everett: Tremendous! Thank you everyone who was able to support! I love you New Paradise!
