What a year we are having at Salem Baptist Church. God is providing, and we are enjoying the blessings. As I write this, we are about to have one of our biggest events of the year in conjunction with the Sneads Ferry Shrimp Festival. We will have bounce houses, tents representing several area churches, and run a golf cart shuttle from our parking lot to the Shrimp Festival grounds and back. All this will be located on the front lawn at Salem Baptist. Also, in conjunction with these events, this Sunday, October 23rd, from 2 - 6pm, we are having an event we call, "Worship in the Ferry" on our side property next to the church. We will have a huge tent with a stage, and we will have musicians, singers, and pastors from 5 area churches to present messages from God's word to all who will come. We are expecting great things from God, and hoping to see folks become followers of Jesus. Bring them in Lord!
On October 31st, we will be joining with several area churches on the grounds of North Topsail Shores Baptist Church, at the Celebration of Light, with booths, games and a hay ride with biblical scenes. What a neat way to share the Gospel.
During the past several months, we had the privilege to see several salvations followed by baptisms. We even celebrated with 5 baptisms on the last night of Vacation Bible School. We are also baptizing 2 more this Sunday! God is really working here.
As we move into the holiday time of year, we remember the goodness and blessings of God. We'll celebrate our Veterans, and remember to give thanks in all circumstances. Then, we'll celebrate God's gift of Jesus for all mankind. Every day, we're moving closer to the Lord's return, and we're learning more about this as God's leads us through the book of Revelation on Sunday mornings. Please consider joining us as we learn about and worship our Lord Jesus Christ.
May God bless you and give you peace.
