What a full weekend! I had the privilege of being the Keynote Speaker for the Prosperity Missionary Baptist Church Family Retreat on Thursday through Saturday. Gloria and I were greatly blessed with a tremendous amount of sound Biblical Gemstones. Pastor Terrance Phillips is truly a tremendous Bible Expositor. I thank God for our 46 years of friendship. Pastor Phillips expressed his desire for our two churches to have a joint retreat next year. NPBC we will commit that to prayer. A big shout out to Sis. Bush and Sis. Elizabeth for coming to support on Saturday. It is always great to have your church family when you are away from home.
I was informed about the smashing Family Enrichment Night! I want to give a shout out to A.T. & Leisha Monroe for a Job Well Done! Thank you for your hard work in putting together a great Family Enrichment Night Experience. God bless you.
By the time Sunday came I was ready to see my church family. We were blessed to have another great Church School Lesson from the Book of Ezra, Chapter 3:1-7 “Joyful Worship Restored.” I was a little disappointed that attendance was down, however, that did not stop the lesson from having an impact on those who were able to attend.
Shout out to A. T. for your stellar leadership of the Church School. Also a shout out to the fine administration staff of Sis. Bush, Akida and Denise for making sure that our records are accurate. And a shout out to the finest teaching staff anywhere: Rhonda, Donnie, Robert, Gloria, Anthony, Marvin, Greg, Anita, and A.T., I appreciate everything you all do!
Morning worship was a blessing, thank you to the Ladies In Faith Together for leading out in the praise period, truly Spirit filled. Thank you for the Praise and Worship songs. Mass Choir, Wonderful Job! Thank you Ivy Z, Eric O, CO, Bro. Billy & Jean. We were blessed to have my friend Rev. Williams Anthony Jones bring the message, God bless you Anthony. I want to thank the visitors who came to Worship with us.
A special thank you to Pastor Donnell Kelly and Greater Fellowship Missionary Baptist Church for blessing the Family Enrichment/Missionary Service. God bless you for our first ever fellowship. Thank you New Paradise For coming out to support.
I want to close by thanking every Auxiliary/Ministry here at NPBC. You all have been a tremendous blessing to me and this church. God bless you! I love you!
Your servant in Christ,
