Good afternoon brothers and those sisters in the Lord.. that give their husbands this e-mail to read! I’m excited about our next Men’s Prayer Breakfast, Saturday, August 28, 2010, at 9:30am.
Our guest preacher will be Pastor Scott Strobel. Bro. Strobel, of First Bible Baptist Church in Lockport NY is no stranger to our gatherings and I’m sure the Lord will allow him to bring a timely sermon for us men and young men. We’ve had a profitable time in the Lord thus far with our January meeting with Pastor Dickson Beam, our March meeting with Pastor Willie O’Dell, and our last meeting with Evangelist Dave Spurgeon in June. For those of you that had Bro. Spurgeon in over the last two months in the upstate New York Community of like-minded Baptist Churches, you can see two of his converts being baptized at Gospel Light BBC on our church Blog at http://glbbc.org/ this past Lord’s Day…PTL!
Also while your viewing the blog page, please read my preface and also read Pastor Dickson Beam’s sensational essay on “Flock Swapping” just posted on Tuesday! I believe you’ll be edified as you consider this touchy-subject-matter at times. Please leave a comment if you’d like.
I trust you’re doing well in the Lord as the summer of 2010 finishes up this month and we hit the ground running early September. I believe the Lord will encourage you as well as others by your attendance on August 28th.
Think about bringing some other men that could use encouragement and sit under some great preaching and fellowship! See you then…Lord willing.
Consider this tremendous verse in closing. Please note the “gospel” and how important of a task we have as saved men to be in one spirit & one mind & together:
Philippians 1:27 “Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of Christ: that whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your affairs, that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel”.
Would you be kind enough to let me know how many of you are coming so we can plan…please?
A lover of good men,
Bro. Vince Giardino
