What a great summer we’ve had here at CBC! The Lord has certainly met with us during our services in a very special way. We’ve truly been blessed with an “Awesome August”. Wow, I’ve never heard such great preaching! The revival meeting with Dr. John Hamblin was surely just that, a “Revival Meeting”. Then, in the month of September we enjoyed taking 23 married couples to beautiful Chattanooga, Tennessee for our annual married couples retreat. We had a wonderful time together and Cassie and I enjoyed spending time with every couple. We certainly have had a wonderful month of September as well.
Now, we look ahead to two very special days in the month of October. First of all Anniversary Sunday will get underway October 6 as my family and I will celebrate 11 years of ministry here at CBC. Also the day will also mark 7 years that Brother Satterfield has been with us as well. We’re looking forward to a great Anniversary Sunday this year.
Then Lord willing October 20 will be SUPER SWORD SUNDAY! And what a joy it will be to have Dr. Shelton Smith with us, the Editor of Sword of the Lord Publications of Murfreesboro, Tn. Dr. Smith has been used of the Lord in a tremendous way for many years to reach the world with the gospel and to make a great difference for the cause of Christ. It will be an honor to have him with us. Please make plans now to hear this choice servant of God preach both services on Super Sword Sunday. For more information about these great days or the may other ministries of CBC please call our church office at 770-786-8885 or log on to canaanbaptist.org.
I look forward to meeting you soon here at the Canaan Baptist Church of Covington, Georgia.
We’re having an AWESOME AUGUST in the Land of Canaan!! During the month of August our church moves our mid week service to Thursday evenings and we host a very special guest preacher each night. This year, as you can see by the poster, we’re going to be blessed to hear from some of God’s choice servants. Please make plans to join us on Thursday evenings for these special services!
Also, the highlight of Awesome August is always our revival meeting. Our revival meeting will take place this year August 25-29. A wonderful week is planned with old fashioned preaching by one of America’s greatest evangelists Dr. John Hamblin from Canton, Michigan. Let me assure you that if you have never heard Dr. Hamblin preach you ought to make a point to! And, you can by making your way to Canaan Baptist Church August 25-29. Lord willing the Canaan Choir will be singing nightly, we’ll have special singing and most importantly a soul stirring message from the Word of God. A nursery will be provided nightly so therefore make your plans to be with us each evening.
For more information about Awesome August or our upcoming revival meeting you can call the church office at 770-786-8885 or log on to www.canaanbaptist.org. I look forward to seeing you and your family during Awesome August here in the Land of Canaan!
Praise the Lord for a wonderful month of July! We do our “VBS” a little different than most churches. Here in the Land of Canaan “VBS” stands for VERY BEST SUNDAYS. And whereas every Sunday is a great time for each and everyone that attends Canaan Baptist Church, we go the extra mile during the month of July to make every Sunday a very special time for our children. Brother Robbie Easterwood does such a wonderful job heading this part of Canaan’s ministry up. We’ve been blessed to see souls saved and lives forever changed as a result of the power of the gospel!! THANK YOU Children’s Church workers for a WONDERFUL JULY!! Only eternity will reveal the real worth of your efforts!
We’re looking forward to a great month of “April” here in the Land of Canaan! Every single Sunday we’ve got some great things planned that I’m sure that you and your family will want to be a part of! Here is a listing of the special Sundays that we have planned. I’m going to be looking for you and your family for SUPER SUNDAYS IN APRIL!
Sunday April 7 – “DO THAT AGAIN SUNDAY” – If you’re wondering what “Do That Again Sunday” is….why don’t you come and see?
Sunday April 14 – “9-1-1 SUNDAY” – A day set aside to honor the first responders in our area.
Sunday April 21 – “GRANPARENTS SUNDAY” – A day when we honor our grandparents present during the service. Pictures will be made of Grandparents and their Grandkids.
Sunday April 28 – “FAMILY AND FRIENDS SUNDAY” – We have a goal to meet on this day and we’ll need your help to make it! We’ll be looking for you on this years “Family and Friends” Sunday.
Again, I’ll be looking forward to seeing you and your family during Super Sundays in the month of April. It will be such a blessing to have you!
Every other year CBC works for months on an Easter Passion Play that for the last several years has been called, “Alpha and Omega”. The presentation takes us all the way from the manger, to the cross, and eventually to a tomb on the outskirts of Jerusalem that remains empty to this very day! This year “Alpha and Omega” will be presented Saturday night March 30 at 7 and Sunday night March 31 at 6. I assure you that you won’t be disappointed for going the extra mile to be here. I believe that your heart will be stirred as well as challenged for attending our passion play this year. For more information you can log on to canaanbaptist.org.
Please help us pray that as the gospel is presented in a very clear and concise way that souls would be saved and that lives would be forever changed as a result of this outreach tool. I look forward to seeing you this Saturday and Sunday night!
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU to everyone that was a part of the 10th annual Land of Canaan Jubilee! The Lord certainly met with us in a wonderful way and for that I’m so very grateful. Every message and song was right on target! From the very first message preached by Evangelist Roger Henson, to the final service with Dr. Joe Arthur and the Harvest Baptist Tabernacle Choir of Jonesboro, Georgia it was a week that many of us will never forget.
We had many folks drive in for the Thursday and Friday evening of the meeting from out of state. That made the last two evenings of the meeting especially memorable. It was good to see so many of our preacher friends from all over the south. It was especially good to honor one of my heroes of the faith Preacher Ivan Dameron from North Wilkesboro, NC on Thursday evening of the Jubilee. Brother Dameron has been preaching for over 60 years and was the first other than my own pastor or the pastors in my family that called me and asked me to preach in his pulpit shortly after God had called me to preach. It was an honor to have him and his dear wife with us for Thursday and Friday of the meeting.
Everything considered, I can only say, “Wow, what a week!” Thank you Lord for the Jubilee this year! I’m already looking forward to the 11th annual Land of Canaan Jubilee next year!
