"IN LOVE" Worship Series

posted Aug 12, 2018, 1:25 PM by Kim Geringer

"In Love" Worship Series starts this Sunday!  In this series of texts from Paul's letter to the Ephesians, there are concrete actions that Paul suggests, and they all have their foundation in the love of God.  This week, Paul stresses the need for unity - not that all will be the same, but that all people have different gifts that complement each other and can be used in building up the entire body of love.
Next week, we are called to a very difficult task.  "Be imitators of God, as beloved children, and live in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us" (Eph. 5:1-2, NRSV).  What does it mean to imitate God?  Earlier in this passage, Paul gives us a helpful list of actions to consider.  The following week encourages a return of love from the people to God by giving thanks and being filled with the Spirit.  As a part of this series, it will be just as important to focus upon "community" as "unity."

What is our church doing to
  • Build one another up in love? (August 12th)
  • Live in love? (August 19th)
  • Give thanks in love? (August 26th)
Join us in worship and let the love of God transform you into the Image of Christ!

Free Movie Event

posted Jun 30, 2018, 6:39 AM by Kim Geringer

South Poplar Bluff General Baptist Church is sponsoring a FREE movie event on Sunday, July 8, 2018, at 3 PM in their fellowship hall.  The church, located at 817 Arthur Street (directly across from Eugene Field School at the corner of Marshall and Arthur Streets), is featuring the movie I Can Only Imagine.

Dennis Quaid and Trace Adkins star in this inspiring true story based on MercyMe's beloved hit song.  Running from a troubled life and a broken relationship, Bart Millard (J. Michael Finley) found escape in music.  Hitting the road in a decrepit tour bus, Bart and his band MercyMe set out on an amazing journey none of them could even have imagined.

Micael Pope, senior pastor, and his congregation invite everyone to come and enjoy this exciting movie event, which is suitable for older youth and adults.  A nursery and childcare will be provided free of charge for those with small children.  Also, refreshments will be served free of charge.  Everyone welcome!  Call 573-714-                                                                              2336 for more information.

Lenten Offering

posted Feb 18, 2018, 12:21 PM by Kim Geringer

Our Lenten Offering for this year will be two-fold.  We will be collecting pillowcases (new and/or like-new) to make dresses for young girls in India & Africa to wear.  We are also taking donations each Sunday for our General Baptist missionaries in India, Jessey and Brittany Vemula, to help them purchase sewing machines for their ministry in teaching women how to sew and be able to support themselves and their families financially.  Each sewing machine/lessons costs $100 and our goal is to provide enough money for 10 sewing machines.

New Bible/Book Study: "Crazy Love" by Francis Chan

posted Jan 28, 2018, 1:40 PM by Kim Geringer

Pastor Chan is the founder of Cornerstone Church and Eternity Bible College in Simi Valley, California.  An Internationally known speaker, he is committed to teaching directly from the Bible--and challenges believers to adopt a fervent, generous, and Spirit-filled lifestyle that reaches across the street and around the world.  In his book, "Crazy Love," Pastor Chan asks the question: Do contemporary believers live the radically committed life Jesus calls us to?  He again challenges church members to take responsibility for their apathy, engage in honest self-examination, totally surrender to God's purpose.  Come join us on Wednesday mornings at 10:00 am!
