August 18, 2014 Notes from Jon

This past Sunday Mary and I paid a visit to Helen FBC.  It was a joy to experience worship with the FBC family.   Dr. Ben Caston led music with excellence and joy.  In addition to the inspiring message from Pastor Jim Holmes, there was a special prayer time for the children.

Each week prior to children departing for children’s worship, the adults (mainly parents and grandparents) place their hands on the shoulders or heads of the children and offer a prayer of blessing and reaffirm their commitment to model worship and a Christ-like walk.  It is an indelible moment for sure.  A special time that others may want to consider.

Georgia Baptist Colleges/Universities Starting Up!

Music and Worship Ministries is blessed to have strong support from our Baptist institutions.  We need to be in prayer for our leaders as they impact students in key areas of music and worship.  Dr. David Wilson offers excellent leadership as he serves at Brewton Parker College.  Dr. Ben Caston, Dr. Becky Lombard, and Dennis Allen are serving at Truett McConnell College.  Dr. Stefanie Cash and Beth Taylor serve at Shorter University.  All of these leaders are active in the Sons of Jubal, Jubalheirs, Music Camps, Festivals, and other state mission events.  They have a heart for God and reflect a positive influence among our students.  We are thankful for all our Baptist colleges and universities and offer our prayerful support.

Jubalheir Concert Reflections

Moultrie FBC had a great Friday night turnout to hear the Jubalheirs.  The ladies sang beautifully and presented the message of Christ to a grateful congregation.  Thank you Minister of Music Lee Hill and Pastor Wayne Wood for the excellent leadership provided in hosting this concert.
