     FROM THE DESK
     OF BRO. BILLY
 
 
  
 
              
Sitting here at my desk thinking about the past 18 years, and my how fond the memories are. In this time we have made lifelong friends and we have seen many of these receive their reward in Heaven.
During this time we have been blessed by God with so much that it would be impossible to begin to name them so we’ll just praise God for all He’s done and give Him the praise and glory for it all.
Thank you for the privilege of pastoring the greatest church around. You have loved us and we love each one of you with all our heart.
May God bless you and may He continue to bless Central Baptist Church!
 
MUSIC MINISTRY
Today is the first day for the rest of your life, ''How many times have we all heard this,” but when you think of it think of this. It has a lot of truth in it; it shows that all of us change. We can start over in almost all of our life’s situations. This is what happens when we accept Jesus as Lord and Savior, we become new creatures, and we start over. One of the most wonderful blessings of the Christian life is when we make a mistake, we ask God for forgiveness, and He allows us to start over. What a wonderful God we serve. Just think every time that we fail in our Christian life, God is always there to forgive us and to let us start over again. So if you have stumbled, and even fallen, go to God and ask him for forgiveness, and you can start all over again. Then surely this will be the first day of the rest of your life again. May God bless us all! Bro. Danny
 
YOUTH MINISTRY
It's back to school time! We need to remember all of the students and faculty at our schools and lift them up in prayer. That being said, I think that the farther we get in our faith we stop learning. Whether we get too familiar with our faith or we just stop trying, we stop learning. We always tell our kids that they never need to stop learning yet when it comes to Christ we stop because we think we know all we need to know. God's word says to study to show yourself approved unto Him. That does not necessarily mean academic study. We are to constantly study His love letter to us, the Bible, and to take it's teachings out into the world and in love share His Gospel. Never stop learning. Today is the day we go back to school for Christ! Bro. Hunter Williams
 
SUNDAY SCHOOL
Sunday School is everybody’s business! It is everybody’s responsibility to attend. Everyone needs it, and all who attend provide a blessing and receive a blessing from others. It creates more stable homes and better citizens. It strengthens faith and it strengthens testimonies. It is inspiring. It can be a mighty saving power in the lives of all who attend. Many do not realize this. Many do not know that knowledge of God and obedience to him are required for their salvation. There are those who seem to think that their Church membership alone will qualify them for entrance into the kingdom of heaven. Come join us and learn about the gospel. Help others to become not just interested, but excited about God’s Word. Please join us Sunday at 10 a.m. You’ll be glad you did. Bro. Tommy Johnson
 
YOUNG AT HEART NEWS
Even though we are not meeting in July and August, we have been collecting school supplies for our school. A special thanks to those who donated for these children! It is greatly appreciated!
Senior Spotlight!
This month we have a wonderful couple who add fun and laughter to our group – Charles (Dude) and Nancy Dunhurst! Mr. Dude’s birthday is November 21st, and his favorite colors are red, white, and blue. He is a former road foreman for PRC and was also a building inspector for the City of Picayune. When asked to tell something interesting about himself, he said, “I’m good looking!” (That says it all!) Mrs. Nancy was born on November 15th and her favorite color is red. She loves to read and work on puzzles. She worked as a rural mail carrier for many years. Something exciting about Mrs. Nancy is that she’s a baby Christian – 2 ½ years old at age 80! She is proof that God can save us at any stage of our life if we allow Him in!
Let me encourage you to join in, become active in your service to others and invite friends and family.
We are never too old to work and serve our God. Love you! Reva
