2021 January Bible Study    John’s Epistles - Living with Assurance
                     January 3-10 (suggested dates)

The focus of this study is on how a person’s understanding of Jesus impacts their daily lives in practical ways. False teachers with an incomplete understanding of Jesus as both human and deity have sought to mislead believers and continue to seek to do so today. Believers will come to understand that they can live with assurance of their eternal life by living in light of their relationship with Jesus.    


                             What’s Happening

Faith at Piedmont  has called Kenneth Boles as their pastor.

New Prospect #2 has ordained and called Garet Rana as their pastor.

Cherokee Baptist met for the 187th Annual Meeting on October 19, at Pine Grove BC - 63 registered, 16 pastors, representing 22 churches          

Christmas Backpacks Ministry
We collected 390 Christmas Backpacks!  Partnering with Ala WMU, children and teens across at least 4 states through compassion ministry sites, will enjoy opening these gifts at Christmas time.  A Bible & the Christmas Story are included in each backpack.  Thank you for supporting this mission project!  


Due to the Covid-19 Virus, there will be no Baptist Campus Ministries at this time.



Food Pounding for the     
     Alabama Baptist Children’s Homes   


12,820 lbs of food was delivered in 2020, to the Oxford Children's Homes, along with $2,152.00 given in gift cards and money.  May God bless each that gave to this ministry.  In such a time as we have been in, I know these groceries were a blessing!
