June Bugs
From the Pastor
What purpose do they have? To kill our
grass? To eat our plants? To pester us by
flying around our heads every time we step
outdoors? Well, that’s about all we know
about the June bug, except it’s attracted to
the light, and it’s really a beetle. The thing
is, we do know it’s committed to its purpose,
because every June it enters our lives with
a vengeance and carries out that purpose
with much enthusiasm.
Dear church family,
Can we say the same about ourselves? Are
we committee to our purpose as Christians?
We can’t put worship on hold just because
it’s summertime. While vacationing, while
enjoying the outdoors with family, while
involving ourselves in all the summer
events, our hearts should be ever in a spirit
of worship. And then when it’s time to come
together as “one” on Sundays, what a
celebration it will be! Let’s enter June with a
vengeance. Let’s not forsake our purpose.
(That’s the only characteristic of the June
bug we want to copy!)
Let this acrostic be your worship guide for
Jesus answered, “It is written: worship the
Lord your God and serve Him only.”
Luke 4:8
Rev. Rodney A. Hughes, DD
Happy Anniversary! For 37 years, United
Love Baptist has been ministering to the
church families, the Midland community,
and the Cabarrus Baptist Association. What
began as a Bible study in the home, is now
the family of God called United Love Baptist
Church. On June 8, at 10:30 a.m., we will
come together to celebrate the different
ways we have ministered to our community.
It will be a service of looking at our past 37
years of mission activities and reviving us to
keep moving forward in missions. Rev.
Robert Leonard from the Cabarrus Baptist
Association will come and share with us a
message to challenge us to continue
ministry as a church family.
You will also hear of a new ministry to keep
us involved in missions called “United Love
Loud.” 1 John 3:18 shares with us, “My little
children, let us not love in word or in tongue,
but in deed and in truth.” My hope as we
celebrate and give God the glory of 37 years
of ministries and missions is that we will
renew ourselves to share Christ love and
our love in deed and in truth. Let’s all come
and celebrate our 37 years as a church
called United Love Baptist Church. Happy
Rev. Marvin Tyson
PS – Don’t forget we have lunch afterward,
so bring some of your good cooking!
From Our Youth Minister
Hello church! I cannot believe it is finally summer time! Within this month, we have some changes being
made. We have several students graduating high school! Tillmon Cook, Taylor Mabrey, Bradley Flowe,
Kristyn Strum, Olivia Burris, Hayden Harrell, Caitlin Lawrence, and Kelsey Little! Most of these students
are members and the others are active friends of members within our church!
You know, it gets harder and harder every year to see these students graduate. Some will be moving
away from home to live on campus at a college. Some might be staying at home and commuting to
school. Some may be entering into the work force. These students are going to be making many
decisions that will make a difference within their lives. Can you join me in praying for them as they
embark on this next chapter?
Some of these students I have known since I first got here 4 years ago. They were just 8th graders then,
but they have grown and matured into fine young men and women. Our student ministry exists so that
we can lead these students to mature in Jesus Christ, so that as they get older they can make wise
decisions, so that they can lead, and so that they can change the world.
The best part about my job is that, even though they are graduating, I will always be their youth pastor.
I have enjoyed spending time with them these past 4 years. Some of the moments have been hilariously
amazing, and some of them have been hard and trying. I pray that the time they had within the student
ministry will make a difference through the love and grace of Jesus Christ! Love you guys!
Rev. Jesse Herring
Trace it back to just the facts! The
evidence is clear. The proof is all
right here! Come discover, decide,
and defend the truth about who
Jesus really is at Agency D3.
Using our best high-tech operative skills, we will examine eyewitness reports, physical proof and biblical
accounts to uncover and defend the truth about who Jesus really is. By collecting all the evidence, we will
Discover the truth of the gospel; Decide to believe it; and then Defend that decision.
Sunday, July 27 – Thursday, July 31 6:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
