Sunday Summary

What a wonderful day of worship at BBC! We had our Friends and Family Day this past Sunday, and the Spirit of God met us there! Our Early Morning Prayer Service was a blessing for all! God met us in the meeting and poured out His Spirit in that service. Again, I must say that this Early Morning Prayer Meeting has brought new life into our church family.

Morning Worship was simply outstanding! Everything just seemed to flow so well. As a matter of fact, worship was so good, the closer I got to the preaching moment, the more nervous I became. I certainly did not want to mess up an experience like this with my presentation of preaching. I was excited and nervous at the same time. During the sermonic hymn, I heard a voice say, "Do what you have been called to do". After that I was fine. I preached a message from Acts 12:1-10 entitled, "How to handle a crisis". Here's the basic outline;

1. Sovereignty of God's Purpose

2. Service of God's People

3. Superiority of God's Peace

4. Splendor of God's Power

God truly blessed the exposition and presentation of this message! Friends and Family Day was a tremendous success! So many people brought guests and they enjoyed the worship experience at BBC. I had several people suggest that we should do this more often! We presented 3 people that brought the most people with gift cards. After worship we went to the fellowship hall for food, fellowship, and fun.

All in all I believe that God was pleased with our presentation of public worship on today! Pray for us this week ! God Bless!

Hey Spoon, man thank God for the great day of worship you had on yesterday. May the Lord continue to bless your faithful work.
I know it felt good to stand before God's people on yesterday and present His word to the waiting congregation.

Be Encouraged brother!

Dr. President Spoon, I rejoice along with you and your entire congregation for all the wonderful things He performed in your midst on yesterday. May your congregation reap fruit from this service in the days and months to come.

Pastor, would you when you have the opportunity share with us a general outline/agenda for your early morning prayer. I believe you are on to something and I interested in starting it at the place where I serve.

Thanking you in advance, just another fan

Spoon,

People get lost in your ability to deliver the Word as they should because you are exceptional but greater than your presentation is your perception to SEE the Word and make others SEE it as well. Plus, you had this outline done on Tuesday, TUESDAY, just ain't right rev.

You have again shown that you are on another level when it comes to seeing things in a text that mere mortals can't.

I am happy for you that your family and friends day was exceptional. God be praised for His Word, His servant and His people.

Congratulations on such a wonderful spirit filled friends and family day. Surely, I believe God blessed the preached word. I'm sure all could agree that it was very appropriate because, in ALL our families we go through crisis. We need to know how God wants us to handle them. Wish I could have shouted with you on yesterday. Praise the Lord! Take care Doc.
