Our Father’s Love

We’ve recently celebrated Father’s Day by showing our fathers just how much they mean to us. In so many ways, fathers are the under-recognized keys to the success of families.

Work, work and more work

It is an awesome thing to have a strong work ethic throughout life’s journey because the harvest is very plentiful but the workers are so few. Jesus Christ had an outstanding work ethic with the ministries He was called to while here on earth.

Baby Boy Project begins

Alfred Carroll Ministries announces plans for its pre-Father’s Day Evangelistic Outreach — “Baby Boy Project.” Prayer, spiritual counseling and water baptism will be offered to attendees.

How to find a good wife

Solomon’s wives led him into idolatry. Samson lost his eyesight because of the woman he loved, Delilah. David committed murder because for Bathsheba. David’s wife Michal despised him for worshiping the Lord. Job’s wife wanted him to curse God and die. Haman’s wife wanted to hang Mordachi. Ahab’s wife Jezebel enticed him to do evil.

Go God go

Stand still and know that He is God and see the salvation of Lord. Whatever battle of this life you are facing now, know it belongs to the Shepherd of our souls.

They will know us by our love

“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” John 13:34-35

Be generous

When we were planting a new church in Redfield, I would continually share the vision to our church and pray for God to supply the finances necessary to do so. One family stopped me early on and said, “God told us to give $10,000.” Then another did the same. Another lady showed up with a $10,000 check.

New Community youth pastor

The Rev. Patrick Lockett, pastor and apostle at New Community Baptist Church, has named the Rev. Tony Williams, the new youth pastor. He will work alongside his family, wife, Linda Williams, and children, Zhoriah Williams, Timothy Williams and Daijah Williams. (Special to The Commercial)

Do you believe?

“I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die.” (John 11:25-26)
