We had another great Sunday of worship and fellowship. Guest speaker Larry Smith brought us the worship message on "P.U.S.H. Pray Until Something Happens." God wants his children to be happy so we should expect things to happen, expect God's blessings. Rev. Smith says that prayer is the key to our success and our way to communicate with God. We should spend time in prayer every day.
This encouraging message on prayer came at great time in the life of BBC. The Pastor Search Committee announced today, that after conducting due process and a formal interview, they are proposing Dr. Lynn Hardaway to fill the role of Pastor and presenting him for a formal vote to Blackwater Baptist Church.
We need to be praying that God's Will is put into action, and not that of individual preferences. It is His Will alone that church members should be focused on at this critical time.
On September 27 a proposed contract will be handed out so the Church can review what would be expected of Dr. Hardaway as pastor. A "Meet & Greet" with Pastor Hardaway and his family will be held Saturday, October 3rd at 7 p.m to give folks a chance to learn more about Pastor Hardaway and hear more about why he feels called to our church. Finally, on Sunday, October 4th, there will be a Special Called Business Meeting after church for members to vote by ballot on the proposed candidate. Members who cannot attend may request an absentee ballot. All ballots must be submitted before the formal vote is taken that Sunday morning.
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!
