A Word from Pastor Ron

Change.  We see it in the weather this time of year, from hot to cold, from dry to wet.  We can talk about the weather, but we have no control over it.  Coming from Florida, I am enjoying having four seasons in the year.

Fall is my favorite season.  I love it when we can sit on the back porch and enjoy the cool breeze.

One place where it is difficult to accept change is in our churches.  We are comfortable with doing things the way we have always done them.  From the songs we sing, the clothes we wear and even the Bibles or literature we use, we would rather not be disturbed with anything new or different.  Most of us even have our own pew picked out where we sit every Sunday, and if someone is sitting in our seat we might get upset about it.

Life is about change.  The book of Ecclesiastes, chapter 3, details how time changes our lives.  A time to be born, a time to die, a time to laugh, a time to mourn . . . changes, an inevitable part of life.  These are situations we have no control over.

What about changes in our churches?  We seem to have more control over this part of our lives.  You may be reading this and thinking, “What's the point?”  Well, here it is – I would like to see if GOD can come and do a great and mighty work in our churches and in our communities.  I believe we can do this "Better Together" than on our own.  Several pastors and lay leaders have been meeting with me and praying that GOD would give us an opportunity to do something together.

Beginning this Sunday night, September 30th, at 6:30 PM, I am encouraging all that will to join with me at First Baptist Church of Lewistown.  We will be joining in a service they already had planned.  Dr. John Marshall will be preaching and we will have great singing and fellowship.  I am praying and believing that GOD is going to do a great work among us.

This will be the start of our SUNDAY NIGHT REVIVAL Services, joint worship services, where we can be "Better Together".  Services for the month of October will be held at FBC Lewistown each Sunday night at 6 PM.

Who knows?  Maybe God can do a great and mighty work in our midst!

I believe He CAN!

Pastor Ron Satterwhite
