WORDS FROM PASTOR ROBIN
November 23, 2020
It’s time! Yes, it’s time to take time to not worry about yourself as much as you care about others. Do you believe this? We sometimes get so focused on ourselves and the stress we feel that we neglect to notice others who are also stressed and could use either a helping hand or a person with a good set of ears. Through my ministry, I have knowing of individuals who wait for me to say, “How are you?” It was almost like the gun going off for the hundred yard dash. I so enjoyed those times because I never needed to tell them how I was doing because I knew then needed a good listener. This is not about a change of character because it’s Christmas. This is a gift God gives us so we can show His love to the world around us. The world that is close. This Advent, don’t just say ‘Merry Christmas’, ask everyone how they are doing and wait for their answer. Jesus did it; I’m going to do it to.
How are you? It would be wonderful to know all of you are doing well. Email me to let me know. Send the email to: [email protected].
Online Worship Services – Pastor Robin’s video messages will still be coming to you each Sunday morning on both YouTube and through the MBC website
Worship Service @ Milton Baptist Church, Sunday Aug.16th 11am – Tim Brown will be with us again this coming week. As you feel comfortable with returning to church join those who are already coming. The building is clean and ready for our return.
The Ontario Government has set down guidelines for a return of the children back to school. As a guideline, you need to do what you think is good for your children and your family. The same is true for coming to church with our Children’s Sunday Ministry. As of right now, there is no Sunday children’s program. We will be working on it for this coming school year and will keep you up to date on what we will be doing.
Scripture of the Year
Pray for one another. I would encourage everyone to take out your directory and go through each name and pray for them individually. As we are a family, we need to support each other in prayer. Do your part. Then give someone a call.
