PASTOR’S WELCOME

Let me be the first to welcome you to Unity Baptist Church! Perhaps you are looking for a church to visit in person or maybe you have been to a service and are now doing a little research. In either case I will take a moment and share a little about us.

As a small country church, we don’t have people directing traffic in the parking lot or a team of greeters to meet you at the front door. But I can promise you this: any visitor will be met and warmly welcomed. Our people will be happy to see you. My wife and I have served at Unity since October of 2014. I cannot write a long list of things our church “has to offer” but our goal is to be the body of Christ in this community. We read and study God’s Word and seek to share the Gospel – Good News – at every available opportunity.

Sunday School begins at 10 am and our worship service is at 11. Singing, praying, reading scripture, giving, preaching and the response to preaching are all acts of worship. We have a few special events throughout the year and partner with local churches for others. I don’t shove religion down anybody’s throat; I want to introduce you to Jesus and tell you more about him. And don’t get the wrong idea – we’re still learning as well, myself included.

You can read about our beliefs, the church’s history and listen to sermons at this website. Contact me via email pastor@unitybaptist.church or give me a call (770) 608-7005 to schedule a pastoral meeting or discuss any concerns you may have. Don’t be a stranger. Feel free to drop in anytime we are here.

Gordon County Hunger Walk

Saturday October 5th, 2 pm, Black & Gold Park

This will be the 10th annual Gordon County Hunger Walk. The purpose of the event has always been to raise funds and raise awareness and we are making a bigger push than ever before to be more visible in the community. The event will be on a Saturday this year instead of a Sunday afternoon. We have already reached out to local businesses and started receiving donations and sponsorships. There will be an event t-shirt for sale this year for $20 and half of that purchase price goes directly to the cause. All money raised will be split evenly among four area food banks: Blewer Food Center, the VAC, God’s Pantry (at the 7th Day Adventist Church) and St. Vincent de Paul’s Food Pantry (St. Clements Catholic Church). There is no fee to register or walk, donations will be accepted the day of the walk. Walk will begin at the Black & Gold Park pavilion located at Hwy. 53 spur and McDaniel Station Rd. Water will be provided, walk happens rain or shine.

Stewards of Grace

A steward takes care of something that doesn’t belong to him/her. We often speak of stewardship in terms of managing money but it applies to many things. We are the recipients of grace and must be good stewards for the benefit of others. As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. (1 Peter 4:10)

Christ-like Suffering

We spend a bit of time on 1 Peter 3:15, the basis for Christian apologetics, before getting to Christ suffered once for all sins. Expect a blog post in a day or two on why the Encyclopedia of Apologetics is on my bookshelf.

Wives and Husbands

Peter’s instructions to wives and husbands similar to Paul’s more lengthy letter in Ephesians 5. All believers called to blessings and to be a blessing.

Note: the pastor is not quite well. If it would bother you to hear me cough and apologize then maybe don’t play this one. I struggled to get out 23 1/2 minutes but I’m preaching the Word, I’d rather try than not even bother try.

Submission; Be Like Christ

I often quote from 1 Peter 2 when studying other passages of scripture, or I should say the parts that talk about the stone the builders rejected and believers as living stones. The submission parts probably get much less attention, and not just from me. Submitting to rulers and authorities, doing good while suffering wrong for it, these are ways to be like Christ and being conformed to the image of Christ is the goal.

Chosen Stones

Jesus is the stone the builders rejected, the human builders that is, the leaders of the Jewish faith. He remains, however, chosen and precious in the sight of the God the Father. We as believers are also stones, living stones that God is building into a spiritual house.

God’s Word Endures

All flesh is like grass, Peter writes quoting Isaiah 40. But the word of the Lord endures forever.

Called to be Holy

Part 2 in the 1st Peter series. We are redeemed with the precious blood of Christ so be holy as the one who called us is holy.

Introduction to 1st Peter

We have two letters written by Peter in the New Testament. They are both short but packed with good stuff. This introduction alone will almost make a Baptist shout.

Christ-like Humility

In Philippians 2 the Apostle Paul challenges believers to be like minded with Christ who set the bar pretty high in terms of humility. Jesus himself taught and preached on humility. Our goal, just like Jesus and Paul, is to draw people to God and not attention to ourselves.

Goliath was the champion of the Philistines who intimated the army of Israel. (That’s the reason for talking about WWF wrestlers talking trash I just forgot the full analogy). David was an adolescent, little more than a child. Goliath came with a shield and a sword but David told him he came in the name of the Lord. That made all the difference.
