CONCORD ANNOUNCEMENTS

The Word of Life  (Philippians 2:14-16)

Doctors, police, firemen, and life guards are in the business of saving lifes. However, every life saved by these professionals will one day die. 

 

Only God's Word can save a person eternally. This Sunday our pastor, Bro. Eddie Fleming, and a Gideon representative, Richard Short, will team up to share the power of God's Word and the great ministry of the Gideons organization. 

 

Join us for either the 8:15 a.m. service or the 11:00 a.m. service this Sunday (05/19/19). In our 11:00 a.m. service we also offer a nursery, Children church, and Junior church for our children. However, children who desire to stay with their parents are welcome in our 8:15 and 11:00 a.m. service. For the younger children who would like to stay in the sanctuary we have coloring pages and crayons available to keep them occupied during the service.

 

Note: We will be receiving an offering for the good work of the Gideons' International at the end of the services. Please give generously. Every penny givien will be used to purchase Bibles that will be given away.

 

The Bible’s first mention of a mother occurs in Genesis 3:20. In this account, Satan used Eve to bring sin into the world.

 

The Bible’s last mention of a mother occurs in Revelation 12:17. In this account, the Bible describes how Mary was used by God to bring about the redemption of humanity through the birth of her Son, Jesus.

 

Mothers have played a large role in the shaping of humanity and in the establishment of God’s kingdom. In 1 KIngs 3:16-27 we have a story of two imperfect mothers, however, one stood high above the other. 

 

Join us at Concord General Baptist Church this Mother's Day, 05/12/19, for either of our services at 8:15 or 11:00 a.m. Each mother will receive a small gift.

 

We have a nursery, Children Church, and Junior Church for children ranging from birth to the sixth grade. 

 

Our pastor will be sharing from 1 Kings 3:16-27 on the Biblical View of Mothers.

Family Matters (Colossians 3:12-21)

God emphasizes the family throughout His Word. He has provided resources needed for family harmony, peace, and growth. He has also given instructions for family members.

 

Every family matters greatly to God. However, does your family matter to you? Does it matter enough to bring about the changes needed for the kind of family you dream about and that God desires for us.

"Why the Crucifixion?  (Text: Hebrews 4:5-18)

Ever wonder why they call the day Christ died, the Friday before Easter, Good Friday? It's because Christ's crucifixion was good for us. It makes forgiveness, salvation, and heaven as our dwelling place, possible.

 

Without Christ's crucifixion, God's original plan for humanity would be thwarted. Without it, God could not forgive our sins, Without it, we would be condemn because of our sins. Without it, heaven would be unreachable and hell would be unavoidable.

 

Join us this Sunday (04/28/19) morning in either our 8:15 or 11:00 a.m. services for worship service. The message is titled, "Why the Crucifixion?" Our text is from Hebrews 4:5-18.

 

We have a staffed nursery for 0-2 years of age, children's church for 2-5 ages, and Junior church for children in grades 1-5.

 

We are located on Hwy. 630, just three miles from Manitou.

 

The Hope We Have  (Luke 24:1-36)

Without hope we stop living.
 
Without hope we stop fighting to survive.
 
Without hope we give in, give out, and give up.
 
Without hope life is empty, our future is black, and joy is only a distant memory.
 
But we need not be without hope. Easter is all about hope. Jesus Christ can be our hope. If you need hope for your situation, your family, or your future, come join us at Concord General Baptist Church this Sunday (Easter Sunday).
 
Our Easter activities will begin with a brunch from 9 - 10:15 a.m. Our Easter service will begin with a drama presentation at 10:30 a.m. followed by a short break around 11:00 a.m. before the pastor shares the message "The Hope We Have." The text will be Luke 24:1-36.
 
Located in our basement we have a staffed nursery for children under the age of two, a Children church for children ages 2- kindergarten, and a Junior Church for children in grades one through six.
 
We also have coloring pages and crayons available in the foyer for small children who prefer to stay with their parents in the sanctuary.
 
Add hope to your life this Sunday by worshipping with us at Concord General Baptist Church.

Our Spiritual Warfare  (2 Corinthians 10:1-6)

The existence of light, requires there be such a thing as darkness. The existence of good, means there is such a thing as evil. A belief in the existence of God, whether we like it or not, requires a belief in the existence of Satan.
 
If we are not engaged in the battle for God and truth, we are either captives of the enemy or are (knowingly or unknowingly) in alliance with the enemy.
 
Join us this Sunday morning (04/07/19) at Concord General Baptist Church for a message titled "Our Spiritual Warfare."
 
Our services on Sunday mornings include worship at 8:15 & 11:00 a.m. with Sunday School from 10 -10:45 a.m. During our 11:00 a.m. service we offer a staffed nursery, children and Junior church services. For small children who would rather stay with their parents, we provide coloring sheets and crayons.

A Lesson on Prayer  (Luke 11:1-13)

"In dealing with mankind, nothing is more important to God than prayer. Prayer is likewise of great importance to people. Failure to pray is failure in all of life. It is failure of duty, service, and spiritual progress. It is only by prayer that God can help people. He who does not pray, therefore, robs himself of God's help, and places God where He cannot help people."  --E. M. Bounds--
 
Join us this Sunday morning (03/31/19) at Concord General Baptist Church for the message "A Lesson on Prayer." The text will be Luke 11:1-13.
 
Our service times are 8:15 & 11:00 a.m. with Sunday School in-between at 10:00 a.m. We offer a nursery, children church, and Jr. Church during our 11:00 a.m. service. We also provide coloring pages and crayons for  small children who would like to remain with their parents in worship service.
 
We are located between Manitou and Dixon, on Hwy. 630, just 3 miles from Manitou.

Problem Solving Prayers  (Mark 9:14-29)

Where do you go or what do you do when faced with a problem that's so big you don't know what to do? You go to the "Problem Solving Savior," who can solve any problem brought to Him.
 
Join us this Sunday (03/24/19) as our Pastor, Bro. Eddie, brings a message titled, "Problem Solving Prayers."
 
The Church is located at 3085 Manitou Rd., Manitou, KY 42436. We have an 8:15 & a 11:00 a.m. service. In the 11:00 time slot we also have a staffed nursery, children Church, and Junior church for those children that would like to participate.

The Prayer of Faith  (James 5:13-20)

Faith is the cornerstone upon which effective prayers are built. This faith, however, is so often misunderstood. It is more than faith in God, it is faith in God's power, HIs love, His Holiness, and His wisdom.
 
Join us this Sunday (03/17/19) at Concord General Baptist Church in either our 8:15 or 11:00 a.m. services. Our pastor, Bro. Eddie will be sharing from the book of James on "the prayer of faith."
 
For the children, we have a staffed nursery, Children church, and Junior church during our 11:00 a.m. service. We also have coloring pages and crayons for small children who want to stay with their parents in the Sanctuary.
 
We are located on Hwy. 630, just 3 miles from Manitou and 8.5 miles from Arby's in Madisonville.

Saving Faith  (Mark 1:1-8, 14-15)

In James 2:19 we are told, "You believe that God is one; you do well. Even the demons believe—and shudder!" What James is getting at is that it takes more than mental acceptance of God to be saved. True salvation requires saving faith. This kind of faith is always occupied by confession and repentance. 

 

Join us at Concord General Baptist Church located on Hwy. 630 only 3 miles from Manitou this Sunday (03/10/19) for worship as we learn what the Bible says about true saving faith.

 

We offer two morning services; 8:15 a.m. (comtemporary music), and 11:00 a.m. (traditional music with nursery, children church, and Junior church available).

The Life of Faith  (2 Corinthians 5:1-10)

Regardless of whether we are religious or not, we exercise faith every day. When we flip a light switch, turn a key, or push a button on our key fob, we exercise faith, faith that the lights will come on, the lock will unlock, or the car will start.
 
Faith believes something before it happens. It is putting your trust in an object or a person. In the Christian life, a believer puts his or her faith in God.
 
Over the last several weeks, we've looked at the importance of listening to God. One very important message from God is the need to live by faith.
 
Join us at Concord General Baptist Church this Sunday (02/02/19), in our 8:15 or 11:00 A.M services for a message on "The Life of Faith." Our text will be 2 Corinthians 5:1-10.
 
We have a staffed nursey, children church, and Junior church for those who would feel comfortable allowing our people to care for your children. We also have coloring pages and crayons for the small children that would like to stay with their parents in the worship service.
 
We are located at 3085 Manitou Rd., Manitou, KY 42436.

God's Great Invitation  (Isaiah 55:1-11)

Some events require an invitation in order to attend. Some weddings are strictly by invitation only. The same is true of heaven. Only those who have accepted God's great invitation can enter heaven. The one key difference, however, is that His invitation is extended to everyone.

 

Join us at Concord General Baptist Church this Sunday (02/24/19) as we examine God's Great Invitation. Our text is Isaiah 55:1-11.
 
We are located at 3085 Manitou Rd., Manitou, KY. Service times are at 8:15 & 11:00 a.m. with Sunday School at 10:00 a.m.

Pay Attention  (Hebrews 1:1-4 & 2:1-4)

According to one website, 80% of car crashes are attributed to a driver being distracted or not paying attention. Although I don't have any statistics, I'm certain that 100% of all moral crashes can be attributed to a person not paying attention to God. 

 

God will guide us, if we will listen. Join us this Sunday (02/17/19) at Concord General Baptist Church as we continue our series on "Hearing God." This Sunday's message will be "Pay Attention." God urges us to pay attention to His warnings in the first two chapter of Hebrews. The text will be Hebrews 1:1-4 and 2:1-4.

 

The church is located on Hwy. 630, 3 miles from Manitou. Service times are 8:15 & 11:00 a.m.

Fruitful Hearing  (Luke 8:1-15)

The soil makes all the difference in the world. Good seed planted in good soil will produce good crops, and, of course, the opposite is true. Planting good seed in bad soil will be a waste of time and money. 
 
In Luke chapter 8, Jesus gives the parable of the sower. It’s a story of a farmer planting his crops in four types of soil. Out of those four types, only one is good soil, the kind that the seed will germinate in and grow up to produce a good crop. The key question is, what kind of soil are you?
 
Join us for either our 8:15 or 11:00 a.m. service as our pastor shares the parable of the sower.
 
Note: The weather forecast indicates we may have to cancel our 8:30 a.m.            service due to the threat of freezing rain early tomorrow. The rising            temperature, however, should melt any ice prior to the 11:00 a.m.              service.
 
           Be sure to check out this sight in the morning prior to coming to                church for the latest news.

Discerning God's Voice  (Text: John 10:1-5)

Sadly, people everyday perform hurtful actions and claim that God told them to do it. Parents kill their own children, spouses get divorces for non-biblical reasons, and they all claim God gave them the okay to do it.
 
How can we know whether it's God's voice or some imposter that is speaking to us? Discerning God's voice is not easy, but it can be done.
 
Join us this Sunday (02/03/19) at Concord in either our 8:15 or 11:00 a.m. services as we continue our series on "Hearing God." This week we will look at how we can recognize God's voice.
 
We have children church and Junior Church for those interested in an alternative for their children during the 11:00 a.m. service.

Be Still and Know  (Text: Psalm 46:1-11)

In my youth, I learned that a squirrel hunter has to be still and listen for the squirrels. As a child of God, I learned the importance of being still and listening for and to God.
 
Join us this Sunday (01/27/19) at Concord as we continue our series on Hearing God. This Sunday's message title is "Be Still and Know." Our text is from Psalm 46:1-11.
 
Service times are 8:15 and 11:00 a.m. with Sunday School at 10:00 a.m.

"Hearing God"  (Text: Luke 10:38-42)

Retail workers know their number one priority is the customer. Factory workers know their number one priority is safety.
Christians must know their number one priority is to hear God? While our purpose is to glory God, our number one priority, which enables us to fulfill our purpose, is to hear God.

 

Join us Sunday morning (01/13/19) at Concord for a message on "Hearing God." In our text, Luke 10:38-42, we will see how Mary got it, but her sister, Martha, missed it.

 

Service times are 8:15 & 11:00 a.m.
