CONCORD ANNOUNCEMENTS

"Trusting our Heavenly Father"  (Joshua 3:1-17)

Joshua Rogers of Fox news recently wrote a good article about his dad, who had failed Joshua much of his life. But in the end, his dad repented and backed up his words with actions. Further details on this will be in my  message tomorrow.
 
The good news is that our heavenly Father will never let us down. We can trust him.
 
Join us as we look at how the Ark of the Covenant was used to reassure the Israelites, and Joshua that they could trust Him as they finally enter the Promise Land.
 
This Sunday, (06/17/18) our message will be "Trusting our Heavenly Father."
 
We are located 3 miles from Manitou on Hwy. 630 between Manitou and Dixon.
 
Join us for either of our morning services at 8:15 or 11:00 a.m. with Sunday School in between from 10:00 - 10:45 a.m.
 
We have a nursery (under 2 yrs), children church (ages 2-5) and Junior church (grades 1-6), available in our 11:00 a.m. service for children 6th grade and down. We also have coloring books and crayons available for the little ones who want stay with their parents in the worship service.
 
There will be no evening service this Father's Day, but every father will be given a gift at the end of our morning services. 

The "How Tos" of Building a Solid Life (1 Cor. 3:10-15)

Anthony Bourdain (Host of CNN's "Parts Unknown") was found dead in his hotel room at the Le Chambard luxury hotel in Kaysersberg, a village in the Alsace region of eastern France this past Friday, June 8th, 2018. According to a prosecutor in the nearby city of Colmar the cause of death was suicide by hanging. He was 61 years old.
 
Iconic fashion designer Kate Spade was found dead Tuesday morning in her NYC apartment. In 1993 she and her future husband, Andy Spade,  launched Kate Spade Handbags in 1993, and it blossomed into a full-scale clothing and jewelry line. The cause of death was suicide by hanging. She was 55 years old.
 
Why do successful people commit suicide? They do it for the same reason that undergirds every suicide. People commit suicide in an effort to escape the life-storm that has engulfed them. For Kate it was husband of 24 years seeking a divorce. The verdict is still out on what kind of storm was ragging in Anthony's life.
 
While it is impossible to avoid most life-storms that will come our way, it is possible to build a life that can withstand the fiercest of storms.
 
This Sunday, (06/10/18) we will be examining the "How Tos" of building a life that hold up under any type of storm.
 
We are located 3 miles from Manitou on Hwy. 630 between Manitou and Dixon.
 
Join us for either of our morning services at 8:15 or 11:00 a.m. with Sunday School in between from 10:00 - 10:45 a.m.
 
We have a nursery (under 2 yrs), children church (ages 2-5) and Junior church (grades 1-6), available in our 11:00 a.m. service for children 6th grade and down. We also have coloring books and crayons available for the little ones who want stay with their parents in the worship service.

The Importance of Believing in the Bible (Part 2) 

Building a life is much harder, and more important, than building a house. In Matthew 7:24-27, Jesus stresses the importance of building our lives on a solid foundation.
 
This Sunday (June 3rd) we will look at how one builds his or her life on the solid foundation of God's Word.
 
Join us at Concord General Baptist Church in either of our services at 8:15 or 11:00 a.m.  with Sunday School in between from 10:00 - 10:45 a.m.
 
We are located 3 miles from Manitou on Hwy. 630 between Manitou and Dixon.
 
We have a nursery (under 2 yrs), children church (ages 2-5) and Junior church (grades 1-6), available in our 11:00 a.m. service for children 6th grade and down. We also have coloring books and crayons available for the little ones who want stay with their parents in the worship service.

The Importance of Believing the Bible (Matthew 7:24-27)

 
 
I understand the value of home insurance, that’s why I’m willing to pay the necessary premiums. When our homes are damaged by storms, we need assistance from the insurance agent, but even more so, when personal, family, medical, relational, political, economic, or financial storms come our way, we need a foundation that can enable us to weather these kinds of storms. I say this because no one is immune from such storms.
 
This is what Jesus is referring to in Matthew 7:24-27. Our lives need to built on a solid foundation. Our homes are constructed of wood, nails, concrete, and bricks, but lives are built on truth or falsehoods. Those built on truth will stand the fiercest of storms, but those built on falsehoods will crumble when the winds and rain beat against us and our families.
 
Join us this Sunday (05/27/18) at Concord General Baptist Church as we share the importance of believing the Bible.
 
Service times are 8:15 & 11:00 a.m. each Sunday with Sunday School in between from 10:00 - 10:45 a.m.
 
We are located 3 miles from Manitou on Hwy. 630 between Manitou and Dixon.
 
We have a nursery (under 2 yrs), children church (ages 2-5) and Junior church (grades 1-6), available in our 11:00 a.m. service for children 6th grade and down. We also have coloring books and crayons available for the little ones who want stay with their parents in the worship service.

Why I Believe the Bible (Matthew 5:17-20)

“I am sorry for men who do not read the Bible every day. I wonder why they deprive themselves of the strength and pleasure.” – Woodrow Wilson

“Hold fast to the Bible as the sheet anchor of your liberties, write its precepts on your hearts and practice them in your lives.” – Ulysses S. Grant

“It is necessary for the welfare of the nation that men’s lives be based on the principles of the Bible. No man, educated or uneducated, can afford to be ignorant of the Bible.” – Theodore Roosevelt

The above men believe the Bible. But why did they believe it? There are good reasons for believing the Bible is the Word of God, but there also some bad ones. Good reasons can withstand criticisms and unrelenting attacks from a non-believing, anti-God crowd, but bad reasons can crumble like sandcastles in the rain when confronted by well-crafted arguments.

Join us this Sunday (05/20/18) at Concord General Baptist Church as we share why we can believe the words of the Bible. Service times are 8:15 & 11:00 a.m. each Sunday with Sunday School in between from 10:00 - 10:45 a.m.

We are located 3 miles from Manitou on Hwy. 630 between Manitou and Dixon.

We have a nursery (under 2 yrs), children church (ages 2-5) and Junior church (grades 1-6), available in our 11:00 a.m. service for children 6th grade and down. We also have coloring books and crayons available for the little ones who want stay with their parents in the worship service.

Lindley Creek Family in Concert at Concord

On Sunday night, (05/20/18) at 5:00 p.m., we will be having the Lindley Creek Family with us. They are from the Ozark mountians of Missouri. They sing Bluegrass Gospel. 

 

Join us and bring a friend. There will be a love offering taken up during the service.

Do You Believe?  (John 5:46-47)

For if you believed Moses, you would believe me; for he wrote of me. 47 But if you do not believe his writings, how will you believe my words (John 5:46-47)?

 

If we don't believe the Scriptures, how can we believe Jesus? If we don't believe the words in the Bible, how can we believe the words from the pulpit? If we can't trust the Bible, can we be certain about God, heaven, hell, salvation, and the savior? We can't. This is why it all begins and depends on our belief in the Bible. 

 

Join us this Sunday (05/13/18) at Concord General Baptist Church as we share the necessity of trusting in the words of the Bible. Service times are 8:15 & 11:00 a.m. each Sunday with Sunday School in between from 10:00 - 10:45 a.m.

 

We are located 3 miles from Manitou on Hwy. 630 between Manitou and Dixon.

The Struggle for Faith  (Mark 9:14-29)

There is nothing wrong with having doubts and struggling with your faith in God, for it is out of such struggles, and the ashes of doubt, that we grow spiritually, and our faith is strengthened and made unshakable. This was the case with Billy Graham. This is what happened with some of the prophets of God.

 

Acknowledging doubts and confronting them plays a major role in the maturing process of a Christian. What we don’t need is believers ignoring their doubts and pretending everything is okay.  

 

Join us this Sunday (05/06/18) at Concord General Baptist Church as we share the role and solution to a struggling faith.  Service times are 8:15 & 11:00 a.m. each Sunday with Sunday School in between from 10:00 - 10:45 a.m.

 

We are located 3 miles from Manitou on Hwy. 630 between Manitou and Dixon.

 

We have a nursery (under 2 yrs), children church (ages 2-5) and Junior church (grades 1-6), available in our 11:00 a.m. service for children 6th grade and down. We also have coloring books and crayons available for the little ones who want stay with their parents in the worship service.

What Families Need  (Ephesians 5:5:22, 25, 31, 33-6:4)

Many families are broken, disconnected, disillusioned, discouraged, and desperate. The government can hand out money, but they have no cure. Politicians will promise much, but deliver little. The lottery will provide false hope while draining the family funds.
 
God's Word provides the hope all families need. Join us this Sunday (04/29/18) in either our 8:15 or 11:00 a.m. service at Concord General Baptist Church as we look to God's Word for "What Families Need."
 
Note: At the beginning of the 11 a.m. service the children from our Wednesday night ministry will be sharing in music. Following the 11 a.m. service we will have a meal and activities for all ages.

Family Day (April 29th, 2018)

You're invited to our 2nd Annual Family Day event at Concord on Sunday, April 29th. Everyone, church members, church attendees, friends, family, neighbors, and community are invited to be a part of our Family Day event.

 

Worship service will begin at 11:00 a.m. and immediately following it we will have a meal and then a time of fun and fellowship outside with several activities for kids and adults. The children will have the opportunity to enjoy a inflatable obstacle course and rock wall with slide, and a bouncy castle for the little ones.

 

Adults can watch the kids, or play corn hole, horse shoes, or take part in an archery shoot.

 

The drinks and bar-b-que pork and chicken sandwiches will be provided. Church members are asked to bring the side dishes and desserts. 

We will be having a blood drive here at Concord General Baptist Church next Thursday (July 31th), from 3-7 pm.
 
Make a difference in the lives of others this coming Thursday at Concord General Baptist Church, located at 3085 Manitou Rd, Manitou, KY. We are three miles out on Hwy. 630 from Manitou heading toward Dixon.

The Word of God  (Acts 6:7-15)

Why do so many oppose and attack the trustworthiness of the Bible? Why do so many, fight so hard, to keep it out of our schools? Could it be that they fear it?

 

Following the Gideon speaker Sunday morning (04-22-18) my message at Concord will look at the unstoppable power of God's Word.

 

Note: Diane McRoy will be sharing in music with us prior to my message. Be sure to be here.

The Gideons International

One of my favorite organizations is the Gideons International. Unlike other Bible distributing organizations, none of the money given to them go to organizational costs. It all goes to the purchase of Bibles. Their members pay for the organization's expenses out of their own pocket.

 

This is why I urge all Christians to support them and their ministry with donations. Every Bible that is purchased with donations has the potential of reaching many in its lifetime.

 

This Sunday (04/22/18) we will be having a Gideon Speaker, Johh McRoy with us at Concord in both our services. His wife, Diane, who plans to be with him has a beautiful voice, and will be sharing it with us in song.

 

The Gideons International is an evangelical Christian association founded in 1899 in Wisconsin. The Gideons' primary activity is distributing copies of the Bible free of charge. This Bible distribution is a global enterprise taking place in 200 countries, territories and possessions. The association's members focus on distributing complete Bibles, New Testaments, or portions thereof. These copies are printed in over 100 languages. The association is most widely known for its Bibles placed in lodging rooms. The Gideons also distribute to hospitals and other medical offices, schools and colleges as well as jails and prisons. The association takes its name from the Biblical figure Gideon depicted in Judges 6.

Victorious Living   (1 John 5:1-5)

When Christ rose from the grave, He conquerored Satan, death, and the grave. Because of HIs victory we too can have victory. 

 

Join us this Sunday (04/15/18) at Concord General Baptist Church as we share practical steps on living the victorious life. Service times are 8:15 & 11:00 a.m. each Sunday with Sunday School in between from 10:00 - 10:45 a.m.

 

We are located 3 miles from Manitou on Hwy. 630 between Manitou and Dixon.

 

We have a nursery (under 2 yrs), children church (ages 2-5) and Junior church (grades 1-6), available in our 11:00 a.m. service for children 6th grade and down. We also have coloring books and crayons available for the little ones who want stay with their parents in the worship service.
