A little bit of everything

by Pastor Mike on March 2, 2020

Dear Church,
It was good to see Sunday School back up this past Sunday. A lot of that having to do with the Live Nativity breakfast. The breakfast was great and a special thanks to the biscuit man.. Ha! Also to all who helped to make it a success.

I am thankful for each person who takes the time to do maintenance at the church. However, there is so much to do that they can never get caught up in order to do new things. On March 21, we are going to have a church-wide work day. There will be a list on the bulletin board of things that need to be done that you can sign up for. We will have something everyone can do.

We will celebrate the Lord’s Supper on Sunday, March 29th. It is something every Christian should take part in. Let’s come together to honor our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

The BIG day I want to talk about is Easter. Churches all across Georgia al participating in “The Big Invite”. It’s an all out effort to invite as many people to church as we possibly can. Be thinking about who all you can ask to be your guest on that Sunday morning. Many churches in past years have seen their attendance double. That would be absolutely great if that happened at Oakland. Each week until Easter you will be  hearing more about “The Big Invite”.

Friend, the last thing I want to mention is our giving.   Everything cost and I know you know that. I believe God still wants to do great things at Oakland Baptist Church. I also  believe if those who have yet to learn to tithe and give to the Lord would trust God and see how God blesses, you would never stop. You know the old saying, “when things get tough the tough get going”. Those who are faithful to give, pray about increasing your giving. You of all people know, it will not go unnoticed.


Serving the Savior,

Pastor Mike
