First Kids Loop for the Week of 1/14-1/20

January 14, 2008

What a fantastic day we had yesterday at First Baptist!

Music Minister Steve Phillips celebrated his 20th anniversary as our worship service leader on Sunday. State representative Chip Huggins, Mayor Bob Coble, Lt. Gov. Andre’ Bauer and former USC President Andrew Sorensen were on hand to celebrate.

There was a special evening service celebrating Steve, Pam and his family and all that they have done for us. There were some amazing musical guests that came. Cliff Barrows and George Beverly Shea (of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Assocation) led music and were also blessed by the amazing voice of Huw Priday from Wales.

One advantage of being at a first baptist church is that you have a unique chance to influence the culture by interacting with prominent and influential people just because you are involved with First Baptist.

Are you using “who you are” as a chance to influence your culture for Christ? Steve Phillips has done this in his twenty years at First and I pray that you will do the same as your seek to fulfill the Great Commission.
