Glorious Days at Wilmer

These past few weeks have been some of the most wonderful days for us at Wilmer Baptist Church.  Our spring Renewal Weekend was a beautiful time of drawing closer to God and each other, and this past Easter Sunday was truly a special day. Our worship choir, instrumentalists and drama team were used of God to convey the death, burial, and resurrection of our Lord in an unforgettable way.

Many people came and were moved by the praise, worship, and fellowship that was in the Lord’s house on this special day.  We are abundantly blessed with so many gifted and willing people who work together to serve the Lord.  Many visitors are coming each week and we are grateful that God is sending them our way.

I can’t help but believe that God is preparing us for some exciting times of spiritual and numerical growth. I encourage our people to keep sharing the good news of Christ, keep inviting people to church, and continue to be disciples and make disciples.  The greatest call in all the world is the call on our lives to come and follow Jesus.  May we be willing to be led by the Holy Spirit and pursue a holy life so God can use us for His glory.

Passing the Torch and Finishing Well

What an awesome time we had this past weekend as we came together for our Renewal Weekend. We were trusting God for a great time of renewal and refreshing and a fresh encounter with God. God blessed us with beautiful weather and great attendance, and it was a very special time in the life of our church.

I enjoyed bringing the message that God had for us on Sunday morning about Elijah passing the mantle of leadership to Elisha.  We have some wonderful adult leaders in our church; they have a great love for the church and wisdom to share with the younger adults who are emerging as the next generation leaders.  We have a bright future here at Wilmer, and our older adults got to pray with and affirm the spiritual gifts of our young adults on Sunday night.

It was a very moving service Sunday evening, as we came together to reflect on the weekend and testify of God’s grace upon us. Renewal Weekend was a special time that will be remembered for the rest of our lives, and we trust God that the fresh touch we received from this encounter will continue to bear fruit for generations to come.
