... but we must tell a future generation the praises of the Lord, His might, and the wonderful works He has performed. Psalm 78:4

In order for the church to move forward we must;

  1. Evangelize like those that have shared the Gospel before you.
  2. Disciple with biblical understanding like those before you.
  3. Be present for worship like the generations that have filled the sanctuary before you.
  4. Tithe like those have before you.

In order for the church to have a "Fresh Start", Christians need to give the next generation "a greater story, a greater family, and a greater future. As we gather for Worship this coming Sunday use the time to reflect on the memories of 2016 as well as the Lord’s guidance in 2017.  It is a joy to serve UABC as your Interim Pastor! - Rev.

Prayer Service 2017

I recall as a child growing up that a couple of things would happen at the beginning of a New Year. One, whether I wanted some or not I knew that my Grandmother was going to give me a bowl of black eye peas for "good luck".  Typically I would eat just a spoon full because I was told to do so! Second there would be a "praying in the New Year." I remember gathering with the family late on New Year's Eve for the sole purpose of praying.  As a young kid I really did not understand the reason or the purpose, I just knew that we would go to my Grandparents church, watch the people pray and then eat.
 
On Sunday, for our time of Worship, we are going to pray, "pray in the New Year."  Our focus will be on several prayers that are recorded in scripture.  As a group we will pray for the Lord's favor, us as believers, guidance, thanksgiving and commitment.  Then we will end our time of prayer with the reading of our Lord's prayer in Matthew.  As you prepare to attend worship this coming Sunday take time to reflect on the memories of 2016 as well as the Lord's guidance in 2017.
