“Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord and who has made the LORD his hope and confidence” – Jeremiah 17:7.
Today we honor ALL of the Fathers, from new dads to great-grandfather’s, those with children at home and those without, with healthy children to sick/disabled children, with biological children to those who are father figures for someone else; We thank you for all you do! The All Male Choir sang beautifully today and our men did a fantastic job leading the service today!
We were also blessed with the presence of the Manning Family Reunion, descendants with roots firmly planted in Concord Baptist Church, and we appreciate them for choosing to fellowship with us this morning.
Pastor Bridges’ text this morning was based on Genesis 17:1-4. Titled “A Father of Many Nations”, he encouraged our father’s to be men of God and strong examples to our young people. Don’t perpetuate procrastination, hibernation, or abomination! It’s not too late to get a CD or DVD of the service, please contact Bro. Nathaniel Sarratt or one of the Audio/Video team members to get your copy today. If you don’t have a church home, we welcome you to join us next Sunday at 10am to see for yourself what God can do!
