Mothers have always held a special place in the family structure. It is through their love and understanding of life, we are given strength and courage. Whether it is your own mother or someone you look up to, the basic thought behind Mother's Day is to express gratitude and give respect to that someone who has been mother and has given you unconditional and selfless love. Mother’s Day Message As we celebrate Mothers’ Day this year, lets celebrate those among us who nurture and protect the children God has entrusted in our care. Let us celebrate the passion of those who care for the neglected, who love the adopted, and watch over the forgotten. We celebrate you mothers and grandmothers for your virtue; your love and your endless devotion. Today, know that you are great, even if you are nameless to some, even if there is no husband to identify with; you have influence, and you are very important to the ones who depend on you! Join us as we celebrate Mother's Day, Sunday, May 11th, at 9:30 a.m. Bring your Mother and Wear Your Hat!

Great Commission Baptist Church 7700 McCart Avenue Fort Worth, TX 76133 www.gcbcfw.org On the one hand, it is a shame that we have a Mother’s Day only once a year. The high calling of motherhood should be celebrated every day. On the other hand, it is a good reminder to those of us who sometimes get too busy to see that which is really important. Mother’s Day is the day set aside to honor the unmatched sacrifice made by mothers around the world. There is a young man in the Bible, Timothy, his mother Eunice, imparted the character of faithfulness in his life, which was passed down to her from her mother, Lois. It was this continuing legacy of faith that was passed on to him. Faith binds one generation to the next in our experience of God. Shared moments of scripture, song, prayer, and teaching builds a common bridge that spans generations, helping families to know God. A mother should let her light shine, and sow seeds of faith. It may take decades for a harvest, but when the seed is being planted and watered, her faith is being seen and witnessed by her loved ones. Tonya Johnson Welcome to Great Commission Baptist Church!
