It is amazing to me how fast January has come and gone.It is still very cold with multiple opportunities for snow to accumulate.Winter is very much still here.February, despite being so cold and snowy, should be an exciting time for us as a church family.On Sunday nights we have begun to watch Billy Graham’s My Hope America video series.Those who viewed the first episode came away very encouraged, excited, and blessed.Many began to put together a list of friends they would like to view it as well.If you missed the first one, I would encourage you to come and watch the rest.For those who were thinking of someone who needs to see these; it would be great to invite them to come with you.
Following these three videos, we will be going through the book of Colossians for our Winter Bible Study (WBS).We will begin our study during our worship time on Sunday morning the 23rd and then continue in the evenings through Wednesday the 26th at 6:30.I think this will be a good WBS for us to go through as a church family especially as we seek God’s direction together.I hope we will have a good group each session as we dig into God’s Word to gain understanding of our relationship with Jesus Christ.Plan on coming each session as we will be moving quickly through Colossians.
I believe this is just the beginning of an exciting year for Pawhuska First Baptist Church.But, as January has come and gone so quickly, this year will be over before we know it.Let us not find ourselves in February 2015 wondering where 2014 went and why nothing really changed.We must seek God’s wisdom and direction for our church, then, we must follow Him wherever He leads.
I am excited about what God has in store for us here at Pawhuska First Baptist in 2014 and beyond.God has brought us all here together at this time for a mighty work.Be in constant prayer for discernment for understanding of what this work is.“Greater things are yet to be done in this city…”Be constant in prayer.Be actively seeking the welfare of Pawhuska (Jeremiah 29:4-9).In our mission and ministry at Pawhuska FBC, we must truly put Pawhuska First! It is in our name.It isour mission.
