A Word of Encouragement from our
Director of Missions
What a phenomenal summer 2014 has been! Reports are coming in from Pastors and churches: Some amazing Sunday Services, Falls Creek, Cross Timbers, Associational Children’s Camp, Mission Trips, Vacation Bible Schools, Revivals and on and on it goes. When I pause and think about the work God has done in and through PLBA churches over these nearly 18 years “on my watch,” I am absolutely amazed. And when I pray for all our Pastors by name I am immediately reminded of how the Apostle Paul felt when he said to the Phillippian believers;
I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always offering prayer with joy in my every prayer for you all, in view of your participation in the gospel from the first day until now” (Philippians 1:3-5).
Though God has worked greatly in the past, we know He is still mightily at work in the present. It will do us all well to pause and give the Lord enough time and attention to remind us of what He has done and where He is currently at work. God is preparing us for another church year even now.
Most of our churches will begin a new church year September 1, 2014. In preparation for that we are given a great opportunity to launch a “Re-Connect Sunday School Strategy.” A BGCO sponsored Re-Connect clinic will be hosted August 16, 8:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. I hope all of our PLBA Churches will register now for the clinic. Pastors and Staff can enlist their Sunday School workers for 2014-2015 to attend the clinic. Enlist your workers, arrange transportation, send in your registration (meal & materials) and pray for a great learning experience. This training may be exactly what your Sunday School workers need to have their best year ever in 2014-2015. Go on line www.bgco.org/sundayschool or call 405-942-3000 ext. 4656 to make your reservations today! You won’t regret it.
Encouragingly Yours, Russell Cook
