Director of Missions Notes

Dear Friends in Christ,
     Pray! Pray! Pray! Pray for this lost and dying world filled with people who do not know the peace, love, and salvation of Jesus Christ. We have seen so much sadness recently with the school shootings. It breaks my heart to see and hear about what our youth and their families are going through today. People need Jesus; we need to be praying harder than ever for the gospel to be heard and accepted in this land.
     The Central Baptist Association wants to reach our communities for Jesus Christ. We need your help. On Saturday April 21st we will meet at Woodlawn Baptist Church at 10:00 AM and go out into the community witnessing and inviting people to come to our block party and revival services. We will meet back at the church at 12:00 Noon along with anyone else who will join us at that time for lunch and then go out a second time beginning at 1:00 PM. If you can't join us for the day then maybe you can join us for at least part of the day. We need your help!
     April 22nd we are planning an association block party at Grand Marshall Park in Lebanon beginning at 4:00 PM. We will be serving hot dogs, bottled water, chips, popcorn, and slushy's. There will be games for the children, bounce house and giant slide, and we will be having different groups to perform Christian music. We plan on having a health fair at the same time so that people can have blood pressure checked. Our purpose is to share the gospel and promote our association revival.
     Woodlawn Baptist Church will be the host of our association revival April 27th - 29th. Services will begin each evening at 7:00 PM. Randy McPheron will be our guest evangelist. Randy is the Director of Missions for Rockcastle Baptist Association. Please be in prayer for these services. It has been a while since we have held an association revival. We are long over due one. Tell people about it and invite them to come with you. Encourage your church to participate. Let's see what we can do to make it standing room only at Woodlawn Baptist Church for these services. Pray for God's Spirit to intervene leading people to Jesus Christ and rekindling a flame in the hearts of those who may have fallen away from the church.
     Children's Missions Day is coming up real soon. March 17th we will be meeting at Woodlawn Baptist Church in their Fellowship Hall preparing to go out and minister to those in our nursing homes. We are looking forward to children of all ages joining us for this event. Please announce this and encourage the children of your church to attend and participate. Our program will begin at 1:00 PM and we plan to leave from the church to go to the nursing homes at 2:15 PM.
     The Central Baptist Association Annual Spring Meeting will be held at Temple Baptist Church this year on March 26th. We will begin at 6:00 PM by coming together for fellowship and supper. Our meeting will start at 7:00 PM and we hope to see you there. A good missionary friend of mine will be our guest at the meeting. His name is Wayne Myers and he is a former IMB missionary to Swaziland where Cheryl and I went last August. You will be blessed by his presence and message. I hope to see you there.
Sincerely in Christ,
Bro. Jay Hatfield
