FROM THE DESK OF BRO. BILLY
 
As we complete another year we look back on the great things God has done in our midst and we cannot but say, “To God be the glory, great things He has done?” There have also been failures, but these have become opporunities for us to see where we might grow and become better servants of our Lord.
Ginnie and I want to thank you for the privilege of pastoring Central Baptist Church, the greatest and most loving Church in the world. It’s been the most wonderful twenty years of our lives! You’ve given us your friendship, encouragement and you have poured your love out on us so much that our cups are running over! Words would be totally inadequate to express our love to you, our extended Church family, but from our hearts to yours let us say, “You are family and we love you!” May God somehow make a way in the year ahead for us to return a small portion of the love you have given us.
From your Pastor and his Wife - Bro. Billy and Mrs. Ginnie, “God Bless You And Your Family And May 2020 Be A Prosperous And A Happy New Year!”
We Love You!
THE GALLOWAY’S

In just a few days we will be entering another New Year. What will this year hold? What will we do in our families? What will we do in our church? We cannot see the future, and I am glad that we can’t. I am so thankful that we serve a God that not only knows the future, but also controls it. Not knowing the future should build up our faith in God, and surely depend on Him to be our guide as we enter this uncertain realm of history. We know it can’t be long before Jesus comes back to get us. So each day, each month, or each New Year makes it closer for His return. Thank God for His love and watch over us!
Bro. Danny

 
SUNDAY SCHOOL
The Blessedness of Forgiveness
Psalm 32:1-5 1 Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered. 2 Blessed is the man unto whom the Lord imputeth not iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no guile. 3 When I kept silence, my bones waxed old through my roaring all the day long. 4 For day and night thy hand was heavy upon me: my moisture is turned into the drought of summer. Selah. 5 I acknowledged my sin unto thee, and mine iniquity have I not hid. I said, I will confess my transgressions unto the Lord; and thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin. Selah.”

 
YOUNG AT HEART
Psalm 46:10 - “Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted amonth the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.”
Oh how this verse should be applicable to our lives today! The hustle and bustle of Christmas is over, and it is now time to reflect on our past year and blessings; to be quiet and hear what God has for us and wants us to know. Only then will we find peace, joy and contentment in our life. I challenge each of you to find a quiet place and spend some time with God - you’ll be glad you did!
