If you are considering a new place of worship or a relocation to our area, we would love to help you find the church that will fit to you and your family.

 

From the AM Desk 

I want to thank Chatom Baptist for hosting our Service of Gratitude November 7th. I truly hope we can continue and build upon getting together in worship and fellowship, and do more ministry and missions in the future. The theme that came out of the gathering was unity and cooperation.

The Advisory Committee continues to pray and seek the man God has in store for the Associational Missions Strategist for our association. We are in the process of narrowing our resumes received. Please continue to pray with and for us as we seek God’s direction for His kingdom work in Washington Baptist Association.

Thanksgiving is upon us and I encourage each of you to give time to what you are thankful for. We are so blessed to live in this country. Consider God in your thankful times; not so much for what He has done and is doing for you, but for simply WHO God is. Take time to share God with someone this week.

Serving Him Together
Randy Billingsley,
Interim Associational Missionary

 

Bro. Larry wrote the following News Letter before he passed away.

UNITY- Someone has said" Two Christians are better than one--when they are together" The Bible defines unity as being undivided; oneness. Human history is the story of sin's disruption of God's ordained unity, like God's ideal for marriage is the man and women to join together to experience the unity of life, "one flesh." Also like God's plan of salvation that He has offer and made possible through Jesus Christ for whosoever will come.

  Jesus prayed that His disciples would experience unity modeled after the unity Jesus experience with the Father in John charter 17. Also like the first church in the book of Acts, where they came to together with one heart and one soul. The Apostle Paul spoke many times of believers as "one body in Christ"- which transcends the varieties of giftedness and all human labels. ( Eph.2:14-14; 3:6 Gal.3:28)

  It has always been my prayer in the many years that the Lord has given us to serve that the churches in the Washington Baptist Association would become more unified to help each other in this world in which we live. I have seen some movement in this direction, which excites me, and know by Gods help and His power we all can do better to become "one body in Christ!" 

  These last five years as the Association Missionary and the advisory team and all those who have help, the vision, and the changes we made was to help the Washington Baptist Association to become more user friendly for all to use the resources and for the younger generation to know the work and the scoop of the association and for them to be a very important and vocal part of the association. We all have to remember that these men and women will become the leaders and the visionaries the will lead God's church in the future. 

   The work that was done in these last five years is just the building block or the foundation for the Associational Missionary that the Lord sends to you, to build upon and improve as the Lord leads him in this great work for all of the churches to come to together to help meet the many needs here in Washington county, to share the Gospel and make disciple's for the Kingdom of God. 

  To come to this decision to become retreaded by God was a very difficult for me to make. My family and I cannot put into the words that truthfully describes the many friendships over the years, the many memories that we will always be in our hearts that God has given us by serving Him in the many areas of service here in Washington County.

  Our Son, Bobby and his wife Susan, gave us a house in Jackson, Alabama on the property they have which has two houses on it, one house they live in and the other one we will live in. So we will be there with them and the grandchildren and great grandchildren and make new memories together. I will work here until December and plan to move by the end of December. The address will be 4053, Walker Springs Rd. Jackson, Al. 36545. So we may not serve the Lord here but I am quite sure He will have us serving Him in Clark County.

  Again many tears I have shaded over this decision and no doubt I will shaded many more, but from my self and Wilene and Crystal many, many thanks for all the memories and the friendships that you all have given us.

         Yours in Christ Jesus,

         Rev. Larry, Wilene, Crystal

         Colossians 3:16" Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another, in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord."
