God has not only kept us, God has blessed us! God’s generosity toward us is beyond measure and his love for us is outside our comprehension. Yet, we should at this time express our appreciation. God has blessed the Macedonia Baptist Church with 106 years of ministry and I am thankful to have been privileged to share in eighteen of these years. I invite you to join me in this season of Thanksgiving by declaring, “To God be the Glory for the things God has done.” From ver  y humble beginnings God has done marvelous things. I have great delight as we rejoice in the knowledge that God has indeed brought us from a mighty long way. This is a time of reflection, celebration and expectation. Looking back as well as forward allows us the opportunity to see the victories and consider possibilities. It is important that we see what God has done. When we look at God, we can walk in faith and declare as we look forward, that all things are possible. Lives have been transformed and a powerful witness has been given and we are thankful for those who labored in the name of Jesus. The many names written both in the history pages and the greater list of names documented within the Lamb’s book of life have participated in the work of the Kingdom here at the Macedonia Baptist Church and assisted in helping others to know that we serve a mighty God. God is positioning the Church in the midst of a transforming world to lift the witness of an ever present and loving God. There should be a reflection on where we have been, a celebration about where we are today, and we should give witness with expectation for the great things God has in store. I am once again thankful for what God has provided throughout these years and remain in great anticipation for what God is unfolding before us. Let us give God our best in all things. Our mission is to take the Gospel message to the community and to the utter most parts of the earth. I am appreciative of the servants who has embraced this challenge with faith! The future is bright as we walk with God and together, let us look forward to worshipping, witnessing, discipling and transforming lives through the power of God!
