We are so Blessed

Rowland BlogWe are so blessed to be able to call Bovina Baptist Church our faith family! There are so many wonderful things going on in our midst. I want to highlight some of the many things I am praising God for in our church. (There are many other things that I do not have time to list - these are just a few.)
  1. I am praising God for our kids! We are seeing such wonderful ministry going on in our children's ministry. God has blessed us with so many children and we are going to focus on children's ministry in the upcoming year to make sure we are good stewards of those children as we train them in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.
  2. I am praising God for our youth! On August 4 we are going to have a youth service during our evening worship. Youth will lead in the music and one of our youth, Steven Channell, will be preaching! What an awesome thing to see youth lead in the church.
  3. I am praising God for our music! It is no shock to hear that music at Bovina Baptist Church is great. Lately, there has been an increased robustness to our congregational worship as Jerry Stuart has implemented a vocal praise team to accentuate our wonderful choir during worship. It is so glorious to be lead in worship each week by Jerry, the choir, and the praise team!
  4. I am praising God for our Technology Team! It is not easy running sound and screens but they do a great job. They have worked to improve our system and have had to learn "on the job". Their ability to do what they do highlights their faithfulness. They are also able to minister to the world through our amazing website and sermon browser here at www.bovinabaptist.com.
  5. I am praising God for our missions program! The adopt -a-mission program has pushed us to be used by God all over Vicksburg. From providing lunch to cancer patients, gift bags to the children in the hospital, cookies for the visitation team, to clothes and food closets, we are stretching ourselves to share the love of Christ with Vicksburg. But, not only that, but we are working hard to take a team to one of the most lost places on the planet, Dubai on the Arabian Peninsula, to do a VBS. WOW!
  6. I am praising God for our fellowship! Aside from everything else that I could mention, the best thing about our church is that we love God and each other! There is such a spirit-wrought fellowship among this body that is special. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else. I thank the Lord every day that I get to pastor the greatest church in the world. We aren't perfect, but together, we worship the one who is!
