Time is a funny thing. Why? Well, it moves slowly and also quickly. Actually, it neither slows nor speeds up. Time passing slowly or quickly is all in our perception.
Worship at FBC.
As I approach August, I am reminded that it will have been 5 years since I was called to be the pastor of this great church. In that time, I have learned a great deal about the people who make up this wonderful church. I have also learned a great deal of the perception of our church. There still appears to be a, "oh, that is FIRST Baptist" type of attitude about us. I do not believe that that is deserved, nor has it been earned by us since I have been here. The time has come to reintroduce ourselves to our community. The younger generation does not know us. They do not know the love which dwells inside of our hearts during worship. They need to see that. They need to see us reaching out to them and to others in our community. What do they see when they look at us? Let us reeducate this town as to who we are. Let us let them know they matter to us and to God.
