What we should be most excited about


Church Calendar

Charles Warner | The Union Daily Times The faith of the overwhelming majority of the Americans who are blessed to call the South their home is Christianity. It is equally true that the faith of the overwhelming majority Americans who are blessed to live in the rest of the United States of America is also Christianity. It has been said, however, that the second religion of the South is football and football certainly is quite popular in this part of the country, but it is also pretty popular in the rest of the country as well. Football is a fun and exciting sport that provides entertainment for its fans and there’s nothing wrong with enjoying the game, either as participant on the field or a fan in the bleachers. What is wrong, however, is when we are more enthusiastic and interested in football or anything else than we are about the Lord Jesus Christ. Football is entertaining, but it will not save your soul. Christ will and does and was doing so long before football or any other modern sport was created and will continue to do so long after the last field goal has been kicked and the last touchdown scored. The truth of the matter is that for all of the pleasure they bring us, football and other earthly activities are only for a season whereas Jesus Christ and the salvation He provides for those who believe upon Him and make Him the center of their lives is forever. So what’s more exciting to you, a game of football or having Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior? Well, which is it?


Saturday, Sept. 19

11 a.m.: The pastor, members and friends of Kingdom Heart Ministry are extremely excited about our upcoming Women Conference.

Our theme is Ultimate Survival and we would like to personally invite you and your friends to share this with us.

The conference will be held at Cedar Grove Missionary Baptist Church, 478 Cedar Grove Road, Jonesville.

Be sure to save the date so we can personally spoil you while you experience our outstanding worship and amazing speakers Sister Eliza Thompson, Lady Vonda Wilson, Sister Jocelyn Peake, Minister Rita Mims, Deacon Sonja Harris, and Minister Jackie Peake Thompson. Please join us with an expectation to be loved, embraced, strengthened, and uplifted.

Our prayer for this conference is that we all will be more fully awakened and receptive to God’s incredible love, that we will experience his presence more deeply and intimately, and that we will allow his Holy Spirit to quicken us to understand our value and purpose. The attire will be camouflage if you wish.
