Administrative Team Meeting Monday, April 13th 3:00 pm BASELA office Franklinton Area Senior Adult Reconnect Conference “Reconnect with: God, The Word, Prayer, Missions & Ministry” May 4th, 5th, 7th, 8th Devotional Thought: Learning to live out "The Lord's Prayer" (Part 1 of 3) Pray then like this: “Our Father in heaven...(Matthew 6:9a ESV) Before we can truly pray in earnest and with pure hearts we must first understand a few things. In the first part of Matthew 6:9 we find the phrase "Our Father in heaven", this phrase recognizes relationship. Our relationship to God is a Father/Son relationship in which God is the Father, this implies that God is the authority. In order to have an effective prayer life we must first recognize God is totally in control of all things... Next month we will see three things that we must accept from heaven to earth in order to have God-centered and spiritually effective prayer lives. - Pastor Shadd Pittman, Thomas First Baptist Church & Prayer Team Leader (WBA) Washington Baptist Association would like to congratulate Ben Fussell, pictured center. He recently received the Freddie Arnold Lifetime Achievement Award in Disaster Relief. Bro. Ben serves as the Team leader for Disaster Relief for the association. Pictured left is Dr. Gibbie McMillan and on the right is Freddie Arnold. WASHINGTON PARISH FOOD BANK MINISTRY OPPORTUNITY AT LAST It's planting time in Washington Parish. If you are a gardener like me, and I know many of you are, there is always extra produce when the crops come in (you know, like the squash and cucumbers!). If you are willing to bring your excess crops by the food bank, we would love to have them. The folks who come to the food bank would really appreciate getting your extra fresh fruits and vegetables. So please think about this and pass this idea along to other local gardeners that might not know about this program. Questions, call Trinity Church or come by the food bank (located 2009 Main St., Franklinton) on the morning of April 1st and ask for Debbie. For more information, call 8393705.
