On such a cold and rainy day it was good to be in the house of the Lord. The atmosphere was bright and cheerful, boasting numerous visitors. Our own Andrew Lewis who grew up in Blackwater was with us today, visiting from his home down south. We tried to get him to sing or play for us (he's so talented) but he was content to let BBC do their own thing.
And do it we did... The Praise Team, delighted to have Mikey with us again, led the music selections with Adam leading the prayers and making announcements. Today's Praise Song was "You Are God Alone" and together the congregation lifted their voices with hearts of praise to Almighty God. Very moving!
We were blessed to have guest speaker, Jon Lincoln, with us today while Pastor Lynn met and served with another congregation. Pastor Lincoln brought a great message about living a Christ-Centered life, reminding us that we have responsibilities to share the Good News with others after knowing how much Jesus Christ did for us by leaving Glory to come down to earth as a servant, teaching us how we should treat others. He paid the price for mankind when he took all our sins upon Himself as He died on the Cross of Calvary. We owe Him so much for His unspeakable Gift and sharing about His love with others is the least we can do.
BBC is a warm and welcoming family of like-minded believers who come together to worship our amazing God. Since 1774 BBC has served the Blackwater community and while steeped in tradition we also blend in a bit of contemporary to transition to an exciting future. We'd love to have you join us!
