Deacons News December 2021


    Our Hope is that this writing finds everyone well! As we look forward to the coming new year, may we take just a moment to look back. In 2021, we sadly said goodbye to church members, friends and loved ones. It is always difficult when we have to say goodbye to those we love. Our hope is that God will continue to offer peace, strength and comfort to all that experienced loss. May we, as God's children, be willing to offer Love and encouragement as we move forward.


    We also experienced the loss of our pastor to God's call to a sister church. Our prayers are that God will richly bless Kestler and his family on this journey of ministry. We also pray for Ijames Baptist Church and its ministries in the Mocksville community.


    Finally, we worked our way and are working our way through year two of a worldwide pandemic. Through uncertain and often divisive times, we were able to set aside our differences for the only cause that truly matters; the Cause of Jesus Christ. All other things seem small when we measure them against God's Glory and his indescribable gift of Jesus.


    As we rush toward 2022, we believe that God is going to do a mighty work in the lives of the people of Cleveland First Baptist Church. We are blessed to have Pastor Robert Jackson as Interim pastor. Please pray that God will fill him with His Spirit as He leads us on this journey. May we be obedient to God's leading in our lives. May lives be changed through a word or an act of kindness or generosity which allows us to share what Christ has done and is doing in our lives. May we always give God the glory as we see lives changed!  


  God Bless each and everyone!
