Hello BBCers,

Does It Matter 

Matthew 28:18-20 

I joined a bass club some time ago. It allows me access to fish different ponds around Texas and Louisiana (for an added fee, sadly). As a card-holding member, I am just that – an official member of the club! So, you might ask, how often have you used the membership in 2017? Let’s see… exactly zero. Does it matter if I fish? On the one hand, no… I’m a member, regardless. But on the other hand, yes! If I want to ENJOY the membership, I need to get out every once in a while! Baptism is a reminder to us that, while we are “members” of the body by faith alone, what we do after, matters. Not for “membership,” but for other reasons. What are they? Come and see!!

Youth Mission Trip – Our youth are getting ready to go on a missions trip this summer. You can be involved in couple of different ways. First, pray for our youth. Pray that God would use this experience to change not only their lives, but the lives of others. Second, prayerfully consider supporting the team with your financial gift. You will find decorated envelopes on the back wall of the sanctuary. Each envelope represents a dollar amount. Please take an envelope…or two. Thank you for your support! For more information, please contact Phil Ridlen.
