This week Steve preached on Mark 15:34:
And at the ninth hour Jesus cried out in a loud voice, "Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?"—which means, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?"which is a quote from Psalm 22:1:
My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?The thing that stood out the most to me about this sermon was the fact that when you feel far from God, Jesus understands because he felt far from God during his time on the cross.
Why are you so far from saving me,
so far from the words of my groaning?
Steve closed with a note from Kelley Mitchell. For those of you who don't know, David Mitchell is our Youth Pastor here at First Baptist Church. His youngest daughter, Belle, had a brain tumor removed back in October and Kelley and Belle have been at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital for the past 4 months. You can check up on Belle's progress on CaringBridge.
On Saturday, we also had a Acts 11:29 Project. We helped out at the United Way's Project Connect event. This is a event to give immediate help to the homeless people here in York County. The turn out was not quite as big as the organizers had hoped, but a lot of good was still done. There were opportunities for the homeless to receive medical screenings, clothes, socks, haircuts, food, jobs, housing, chiropractic help, dental screenings and much much more. It was great seeing people come in and have their lives changed by something as small as a haircut.
Next week is Commitment Sunday. This will be a great opportunity for people to find out more about First Baptist Church and for people to join the church. Looking forward to it.
