Wyebrook Missionary Baptist Church

Letter from Pastor Perry Stewart

March, 2018

Dear Family of God at Wyebrook Baptist Church,

I’m thankful we have Spring to look forward to. I realize cold weather can persist but thankfully someday soon and very soon we will enjoy warm weather…it won’t be long.  

Our hope in the coming Spring is much like the hope we have in our Lord’s soon coming. We surely don’t know when he is coming but we do know it is not far away. John 14:2, 3 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare place for you, I will come again and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. Looking for his coming gives us hope and hope even when things may be “cold,” spiritually speaking. These promises warm our heart and causes us to be, Looking for that blessed hope and glorious appearing of the great God and our Savior Jesus Christ.

Our membership class will begin Sunday, March 4 at 10:00 a.m. in my office. It will last four weeks. My hope is you will be a part of things. This does not make you a member but it shows you what it means to be a part of our fellowship at Wyebrook. More than 75% of our membership is involved in one area of ministry or another. You can come and check it out without obligation. If you happen to miss a Sunday, no big deal. We can make it up according to your schedule.

With Easter being on the first Sunday of April this year, we want you to be mindful of the practices on Sunday with the choir and our children during Junior Church hour. We will have a full morning on this special day with the schedule as follows:

7:30 a.m. Early Service

8:45 a.m. Breakfast Buffet

9:30 a.m. Children’s Hour & Egg Hunt

11:00 a.m. Easter Worship with Communion

Our children and young teens will join our choir for a special presentation of “Christ the Lord is Risen Today.” Please be thinking who you might invite that is not presently attending church elsewhere. We have an opportunity to reach out to these folks and feed them spiritually and physically.  

Just a reminder we will be doing a 50th anniversary pictorial directory to celebrate our special 50th anniversary as a church. Please keep an eye on the weekly bulletin for more info to follow. Again, if you have any historical church pictures, including wedding photos here at Wyebrook, please give them to Kathy or scan and email them to her.

Blessed by the Lord’s goodness to us and still dependent upon the Master,

Pastor Perry
