A Word of Encouragement from our Director of Missions
I’ve been teaching through Dr. Thom Rainer’s book, “I am a Church Member” on Wednesday nights at Emmanuel Baptist Church, McLoud, where I am serving as Interim Pastor. I have read through the book several times, given my personal pledge to each of the six charges (chapters) and answered the study questions after each chapter. For those of you who are yet to go through the book, I hope you will seriously consider it. It’s ideal for a six week study! Maybe Sunday School, Discipleship on Sunday or Wednesday night or even a weekend retreat. The following is a list of chapter titles:
(1) I Will Be a Functioning Church Member
(2) I Will Be a Unifying Church Member
(3) I Will Not Let My Church Be About My Preferences and Desires
(4) I Will Pray for My Church Leaders
(5) I Will Lead My Family to Be Healthy Church Members
(6) I Will Treasure Church Membership as a Gift
You can buy the books through LifeWay for $5 each (in boxes of 20). It is a very needed study in most of our churches. I can only imagine the difference it would make in PLBA churches if every member of every church would study the book, take the pledges and answer the study questions following each chapter.
Encouragingly Yours, Russell Cook
