Charlie’s Corner – April 22nd

Annie Armstrong Easter Offering Please remember, that now until the end of April we will be collecting the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering to support our NAMB missionaries. 100% of this offering goes to support our missionaries and their ministries. So far, we have collected $3,810. Thanks for your generosity and stewardship.

PBA Events – Don’t forget about the Car, Truck, and Cycle Show that will be this Saturday, April 23rd around the Square in Carrollton. The action will begin at 9am and will end at 1. At 5:30pm that same evening, the PBA is hosting a Wild Game Supper at Highland Baptist in Gordo. Catfish and crawfish and other fixings will be on the menu. Rick Burgess of the “Rick and Bubba Show” will be the featured speaker.

After Easter, Then What? Last week was an awesome day to be in God’s House. We had 120 in Sunday School and our sanctuary was almost packed. I loved seeing all the bright colors and hearing those familiar hymns of victory and the powerful anthems the Sanctuary Choir sang. It is hard to keep the momentum going, but let’s try to reach 100+ in Sunday School three weeks in a row.

If we don’t have a big crowd … do you realize that’s more common than we realize. Across the Christian faith, the Sunday after Easter is called “Low Sunday”. That description has nothing to do with attendance though. It’s called that because of the reaction of the disciples immediately after hearing that Jesus was raised from the dead. You would think that would have started the greatest revival in the history of the world. But scripture paints a different story – Cleophus and his traveling partner took off to Emmaus in a downcast mood, Thomas was doubting what he had heard, and Simon Peter had gone back into the fishing business. Things were different and it was going to take a while into Jesus was able to get the Disciples back to disciplining.

Well, we remembered and celebrated the Gospel story this past week – we need to get back to disciplining too, Amen?!

Blessings, Charlie
