The Deacons hosted the Widow/Widowers of the church for the 2018 Christmas Dinner last night.

Caring for others


As we mature in our Christian faith, we realize that being a follower of Jesus comes with many responsibilities. The Bible makes these responsibilities known to its readers. The Lord, in His wisdom, gives very specific guidance regarding care as a vital part of our Christian life.


James 1:27 - Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orhans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world


Scripture tells us that widows and orphans have a special place in God's kingdom.  Widows and orphans can experience tribulation and potential harm, perhaps easier than others. We are instructed to visit them when we become aware of their difficulties. This visit includes being ready to assist them and in extreme cases to look after them.


James 2:14-17 - What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him? (15) If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food, (16) and one of you says to them, "Depart in peace, be warmed and filled," but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit? (17) Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.


Christians must take action when it comes to care. Simple well wishing has no place in God's Kingdom. we should be thankful for the benevolent work done by Mulberry. Our Benevolent Committee works hard and diligently in dealing with individuals needing financial assistance. The body visits people in hospitals, sends cards and extends a helping hand when needed. The Homebound Ministry keeps in contact with those that are unable to attend Church services and makes them feel a part of the Church community. People in foreign lands receive love, access to our Lord, supplies for physical well being and materials such as bibles and Christian literature. Foreign missions are a vital part of our ministry. In addition, our support of the Southern Baptist Convention helps with spreading the Gospel through our Missionaries stationed overseas.


Matthew 25:37-40 - "Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, 'Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? (38) When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? (39) Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?' (40) And the King will answer and say to them, 'Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.'
