141st ANNUAL MEETING IS IN THE HISTORY BOOKS
In spite of the Covid pandemic, we had a very nice annual meeting Monday, October 26, with Mambrino Baptist Church serving as our hosts. They were extremely gracious and served us a delicious meal. Pastor Paul Duncan delivered an encouraging and challenging message for the annual sermon entitled “Do Not Lose Heart,” from 2 Corinthians 4. Moderator Rick Lineberger led us through the meeting smoothly as officers were elected, the budget was adopted, and we heard various updates and reports.
We also approved plans to proceed with our Christmas Staff Appreciation dinner with Dr. Dennis Swanberg entertaining and encouraging us. The location is in the process of being determined and we will forward that information as soon as it is settled. The date is Monday, December 7, so you can put that on your calendar, knowing the location will be forthcoming.
We also received two additional churches into our fellowship. Benbrook Korean Baptist Church, and their pastor, Dr. Jae Ho Lee, are located in the facilities previously used by Arise Baptist Church, on Highway 377 just north of Cresson. Also George’s Creek Baptist Church and their pastor Pat Bush, they are located just north of Highway 67 east of Glen Rose. We are delighted to have them as partners in the mission of Paluxy Baptist Association.
If you were able to watch the meeting online, I would appreciate hearing from you so that I could have information about how that option worked for some who had asked about it
As we continue moving through these unusual times with the pandemic, please keep your eyes on the Lord and know that He knows where we are and the difficulties we are facing. Let’s keep trusting Him and depending on His wisdom and guidance as we move forward for His glory.
May the Lord bless you and your continued faithful service for Him.
I’m so glad to be your DOM,
