August 2022

 

“Revive us again, fill each heart with thy love. May each soul be rekindled with fire from above. Hallelujah! Thine the glory. Hallelujah! Amen! Hallelujah! Thine the glory. Revive us again.” W. P. Makay gave the bride of Christ that beautiful hymn, Revive Us Again. The quote above comes from the 4th verse and the chorus. They constitute a prayer containing petitions and praises.

While our God is in the heavens and does whatever He pleases, based on Biblical passages and redemptive history, we may safely conclude that revival is unlikely to come to the church apart from the prayers of God’s people. Prayer was certainly a catalyst for the great Welsh Revival in 1904.

The life of Evan Roberts and the story of the Welsh Revival are truly intertwined. Reared in godly home and rooted in the fear of the Lord, the young coal miner would not leave home without his Bible. At every opportunity, he opened and read it. Approaching the age of 20, Roberts longed for more. After seeking the Lord through the night, he arose from his prayer surrendered to God. “Evans had also a deep life of intercession.” (https://www.bcwales.org/1904-welsh-revival)

His prayers, as well as others no doubt, gave rise to a great revival that drew people from near and far—even America. The Spirit of God did a great work as people gathered to sing and to pray and to repent and to confess. The people and the population were transformed. Life was so upended that, according to one story, horses in the mine who were accustomed to cursing and profanity were afterwards confused because their drivers swore no more. Let’s pray for such a life-changing revival.

MUSIC MINISTRY

 

God has truly  blessed the worship service through song and praise. Our musicians and Praise Team put in a lot of time and effort in preparation for worship. They prepare our hearts for the wonderful message brought by Bro. Kyle. Please make sure to tell these talented people thank you for serving.

On another note, we are always looking for volunteers for Special music.

If you would be willing to share your talents, please see me.

CBC 50th ANNIVERSARY/HOMECOMING 

We will be celebrating the 50th anniversary/homecoming of our church on Sunday, October 2nd.  Plans are underway and we encourage you to pass the word to former members inviting them to attend along with us.  Former staff members will be participating in praise and worship, and a charter member will give a historical presentation.  The service will begin at 10:30 a.m., and a specially-prepared lunch will follow.  God has truly blessed Central Baptist Church throughout these years, and our prayer is to continue being a lighthouse in our community drawing folks to Him.


We are excited to announce that we have a bus ministry that runs every Wednesday evening.  If you know of a child that doesn’t go to church, please get with me.  We would love to reach out to them.  Our prayer is that the bus ministry will grow and that we will be able to run it on Sundays too.  

I know we have a couple of months before our Fall Fest, which will be October 30, 4 - 6 PM.  It is time to start thinking about what God would want you to do during this outreach opportunity.  We will be adding a few things to it this year, stay tuned for that!!  May God Bless each and every one of you.  

Love, Mary and the Children’s Committee
