A good laugh is.....

A good laugh is like a warm bowl of macaroni and cheese… is filling and satisfying and so ever needed in this world today! On Sunday night, WBC celebrated surpassing the goal of 400 boxes of macaroni & cheese for donation to the Shelby Baptist Association’s food bank with the final count being 480 boxes!! Praise the Lord – that is a whole bunch of mac and cheese.

The theme again this year was Mac & Cheese & Jesus Please – the kids (along with the adults) had about six weeks to collect boxes and bring them to the church. Each box was prayed over – that the family that cooks it and eats it will be blessed and come to know our Jesus as their personal savior!

Our pastor, Bro. Greg, had issued a challenge to the children to meet the goal and if they did – he would dress in costume – thus Macaroni Man was born. The pictures below show us laughing and having fun – celebrating and enjoying fellowship with each other. We worshipped the Lord, we prayed over the boxes, we enjoyed a meal together, and we LAUGHED!!!

Sometimes as adults, we forget to laugh – we forget how good it feels. Proverbs 15:13 says “A joyful heart makes a cheerful face”. As Christians, we should laugh more. It does not cost us anything, it is good for our souls and it is very inviting to others! A good laugh is sunshine in the house! Yes – there was sunshine in the house this past Sunday!!! Thanks to all who helped with this project!!!

Bro. Greg – thanks for being such a good sport with Macaroni Man!

Easter Sunrise Service 04/04/10

We gathered at the cross - it was still dark outside. Some were in their Sunday best while others were very casual – ALL were welcome there. The sweet spirit among everyone that attended filled the morning air.

On this precious Easter, nothing else was on our minds except celebrating the Risen Savior. In the still of morning, we were all one body, one spirit, one truth. Each of us very different yet all of us the same in Christ!

The singing of the hymns as the sun began to rise sent chills over the body. The solos were more beautiful than normal and The Word was alive! Tears of joy filled our eyes and our hearts were overwhelmed at the miracle of the resurrection! As the sunrise service dismissed, there was no doubt that God was among us.

Jesus Christ did what He said He would do. He rose from the dead. HE IS ALIVE!

Praise the Lord for Jesus! Because of Him, we, who believe, will have eternal life in heaven. Oh what a sacrifice, oh what a gift, oh what love!

GPS - Wilton style

GPS - God's Plan for Sharing. Plain and simple - share the gospel with every household in the United States by 2020....can this be done??? Oh yes!!

We are in the beginning stages of sharing...Last week, Wilton Baptist prayer warriors walked (yes I said walked) the Town of Wilton praying individually over each house...It was cold, it was windy, it was wet but IT WAS A BLAST!!!!

What a blessing we received from prayer over the houses! This past Sunday afternoon, we revisited those same houses on foot to deliver pamphlets and invitations to Easter services. This time the day was gorgeously sunny and again IT WAS A BLAST!

And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, "How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!" Romans 10:15

Thank you Lord for letting us put feet to our prayers! Thank you for Jesus!!

May be never take for granted the privilege of sharing the GOOD NEWS!

Below are some pictures from from the refreshments afterward....this was just the baby steps - lots more work to can help!!! We need volunteers at Wilton - the Lord will bless you for it!!
