May 31st. Update:
Our Association is ramping up as the Covid-19 threat continues to lessen. We have our State Missions Banquet with Meal on Tuesday, August 3rd at First Baptist Church Mexia and the cost of the meal is $10.00 per person. The time for this Banquet is 6:30 PM. Reservations are being taken right now and need to be in by July 19th to make sure we have enough food for everyone attending. Dr. Nathan Lorick, our new Executive Director of the Southern Baptists of Texas State Convention will bring our message for this wonderful night. More information and links to register are located on our front page.
Also, there will be a very brief Executive Board Meeting at 6:00 PM for minimal business needs.
Next, we have planned a new and very exciting Men and Boys Fish Fry to be held on September 18th. Christian Comedian Dennis Swanberg will be our guest speaker. This will be a free event and we encourage our member churches to use this event as a round-up and an outreach to your community. It will be held at Mockingbird Hill meeting center, owned by First Baptist Church Teaqgue, located just east of Teague. A map will be added to this site as we get closer. This is a great opportunity provided by your Association that we hope you will enjoy and use for the Glory of God. More information will come for this very soon.
Next, our Annual Meeting is scheduled for Sunday, October 10th, at Calvary Baptist Church Mexia. The first meeting will be at 5:00 PM, and the second meeting will be at 7:00 PM. At this time we are planning to have a free meal between the two meetings as we customarily did before Covid-19 invaded our area.
It is my prayer that each of our churches will be a part of these wonderful events and that each church will find them to be a blessing to the life and work of their church in the context of where God has placed them to serve.
In His Love,
Chuck Sturgeon, Moderator
Pastor, First Baptist Church, Coolidge.
