Looking Ahead…

Christmas is Here! Well, not quite… but the Sanctuary Choir has begun rehearsing its Advent/Christmas Music! If you enjoy singing and would like to get “in the spirit of Christmas” than you are cordially invited to participate in the Sanctuary Choir. We rehearse each Thursday from 6:45-8:15 PM and childcare is provided. Now is a…

Looking Ahead…

I guess all of us… individuals, families, and organizations of all types including churches look ahead in a variety of areas. During the past year, looking ahead in the life of our church was what I tried to accomplish in this column. Perhaps as I composed “Looking Ahead” I was really writing and speaking to…

You may have already read “Reflections” by our new pastor, Dr. Tripp Martin. His arrival surely fulfills much of my “Looking Ahead.” Tripp and I have had the opportunity to spend several hours together both before and since he was called as our next pastor, and I must tell you I am so excited!

For almost a year each member of Auburn First Baptist Church has been asked to keep the Pastor Search Committee in their thoughts and prayers.

Preparing for the Reflections on Forty Years presented last Thursday evening was emotionally packed for me. I was glad to have the opportunity of sharing some of those memories… both serious and…

Today, I hope you will allow me to look back prior to looking ahead. Our 40th Reunion was, in my opinion, Glorious! The returning alumni and their families had a wonderful experience visiting with each other, visiting with you, worshiping together on Sunday, and enjoying that “feast of a meal” you provided following the service.…

Today, prior to looking ahead, I would like to “look back” on the past three Sundays. GMO Sunday was a wonderful combination of the spoken word and the sung word. Ronnie’s Brewer’s message and Kate Campbell’s music fit so perfectly together, reminding us of our Christian duty to care for the “least of these.” (By…

In the middle of our 175th anniversary, Auburn First Baptist is exploring our past while looking to the future. I think all are enjoying the historical essays written by Wayne Flynt. We have also enjoyed the display in our foyer outside the sanctuary. And, although reading about our church’s history and looking at pictures of…
