Bits & Bytes

Here are some “sound bites” from Sunday morning’s sermon, “Living Life on Purpose” based on I Peter 4:11:

  • Our pupose in life is to glorify God
  • No matter our situation, it isn’t about us
  • No matter our situation, it is all about God
  • If we can understand this, we’ll understand our purpose in life.

You can listen to the sermon by clicking the audio player below:

Tragedy in Maryville, IL

Posted by Rick on March 8, 2009

Please pray for the First Baptist Church family of Maryville, Ill.  Today, during their early service, a gunman entered the building and murdered their pastor, Dr. Fred Winters.

This is taken directly from their church website:

A Message About Today’s Loss

Today, a little after our 8:15 service began, a man entered First Baptist Church and fired several gunshots at our Senior Pastor, Dr Fred Winters.

Please pray for Dr. Winter’s family, our two brave members who were injured when they stopped the assailant, for the assailant himself and his family, and for our church members as they deal with this tragic loss.

In this day, where uncertainty seems to abound creating an environment in which people are vulnerable in doing things they might not do otherwise, one thing is certain, we, as human beings need a foundation upon which we can live our lives. We at First Baptist Maryville, along with other Christian believers, share this conviction: that foundation is God’s Word. In the pages of the Book we call the Bible, we find the pathway for peace, hope, and a quality of living life despite what circumstances we find ourselves in.

To those who believe in the power of prayer, we covet your prayers right now.
