Why should a church member show up to hear their Pastor share about the happenings of the Southern Baptist Convention meeting last week in Dallas?
Good questions. But that is exactly what I plan on doing tonight at 6:10 with our Rainsville First Family.
Our meeting won't change anything that happened and your life will not be richer (or poorer, I hope) for attending and hearing. Our report will not result in us voting on anything...so why?
We are a Southern Baptist church and that way we do business could mean that the local church doesn't need to bother itself or even care about what happens on the national level. But I disagree. I believe you need to be informed where the Convention is and what is going on.
So, I look forward tonight to giving a report and then answering any questions you might have.
Here are some links if you would like to know more:

The Convention meeting is coming to Birmingham next year June 11-12. If you are interested in attending, mark it on your calendar. The meetings are always on a Tuesday and Wednesday with the Pastor's Conference on Sunday night and Monday. Greg Laurie is also coming to Birmingham for special rallies June 6-8.

This section of Scripture deals with the fear of God and I've seen how Jesus talks about it in a way that is amazing. That's why I call it "The Mystery of The Fear of God." There are some "eye-opening" words here and we will look at this issue over the next three Sundays. Can't wait...
There is no Sunday night service this Sunday due to Father's Day. Enjoy the extended time with your family and friends.

However, tonight, Don Meyer will be leading the church in Bible study at 6:10. We appreciate Don and Grace Meyer and are grateful God led them to our Rainsville First. You will enjoy his leading through the Word of God.
