A WORD FROM THE PASTOR:

Don and I recently attended the C2M Conference on missions put on by the MidSouth Baptist Association. It was a great conference. In one of the breakout sessions, I learned that the United States has the 4th most non-Christians in the world behind only China, India and Indonesia. 

Furthermore, out of the 6.3 million people who call Tennessee home around 44% do not go to church on a regular basis. That's almost half of the people in our state! Finally, right here in Shelby County 36.6% do not go to church on a given Sunday. 

These numbers are sad and mind blowing when you think about how many people do not have a saving relationship with Christ. 

What are we called to do about it? We the church, specifically UABC, are called to be missionaries sharing and engaging with people the Gospel of Jesus Christ. 

This Sunday we are going to look at our final value as a church: "The Great Commission", and we are going to look at how each one of us can make a difference for eternity in someone's life when we remember who we are and what we are to do for the Lord.

Grace and peace,

Pastor T

Thank you to each person who helped prepare soups, desserts, drinks, set up and clean up, and all the other stuff that needed to be done to make our ministry/update meeting a great time of fellowship! 

If you missed out on the meeting, and you would like a hard copy of the 1st Quarter reports, stop by the church office to grab a copy. Also, a motion was made and approved by those present to take the discussion of how to handle the replacing of the CEC classroom floors to the Finance Committee and the Trustees. These respective committees will look at options to bring back to the church body to vote on. 

Finally, as we move toward this coming Sunday, I want to encourage you to read Galatians chapter 5, but look closely at chapter 5:13-15. I will be dealing with our 4th Value: "Service Minded".

Grace and peace,

Pastor T
