The first three months of this year have been very busy for First Baptist Church LaBelle. We celebrated our 100th Anniversary in February, which God blessed us greatly. In March we did Judgement House and we had 25 professions of faith in Jesus Christ. We are still feeling the effects of Judgement House in our church and we are thankful to the Lord for that. In March, I went to Romania to work with the local Pastors in Zalou to give encouragement to them and their congregations. I took the toiletry items that you donated to these Pastors in Zalou and they will distribute them to the needy families in their churches.
This weekend our church will be involved in "Relay for Life" at LaBelle High School. For the last several years our church has had a team representing our church. Activities start around 3pm, Saturday afternoon and go to Sunday morning around 8am. If you have a chance go out to the LaBelle High School and support our team.
I've been reading the promotional material for the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering. This year the theme is "Whatever It Takes". In Mark 2:1-12 we find a reminder as Christians of what we should do to bring others to Christ. Whatever It Takes!
May we be a church to do "Whatever It Takes", to reach people for Christ. May we pray for our church and the other churches in our community who are reaching people for Christ. May we see that our giving to our church is very important to the ministry of our church. Your offering is a gift to God and may we be faithful to him through our giving.
