Missionary Visit: August 16th

Ketly and Vital Pierre –
On August 16th in both worship services we will have Ketly and Vital Pierre with us, for the first time. They are the missionary family that hosted our missions team in Nicaragua two summers ago. We loved them and I believe you will too. Here is a little about them from
The Pierres work on the Atlantic coast of Nicaragua to strengthen local churches and encourage existing churches to plant new ones. One way they do this is by leading and coordinating seminars and workshops. Through these sessions, pastors and leaders of local congregations learn how to strengthen the ministries of their churches.
The Pierres' ministry is a holistic, "hands on" endeavor in which they walk and work alongside local people, building relationships. They also work with people in local churches to educate against drug abuse and drug trafficking.
The Pierres also serve as a link with American Baptist churches in the U.S. for volunteer groups. The groups are matched with local ministries according to where they would be the most effective. The Pierres invite leaders and short-term missionaries, pastors, businessmen, teachers, and professors to present seminars and workshops. They started churches at Bluefields and at Rama (where our mission team served in the summer of 2013). They are currently on home assignment here in the states this year. 

Iglesia Christiana Resurreccion Church -Combined ServicesAugust 23, One Service at 10:30 AM

It has been a few years since we have gathered with our brothers and sisters in Christ from the Iglesia Christiana Resurreccion Church. If you have not been with us when we have worshiped together it is a wonderful experience. We will sing worship songs together and Pastor Tony will preach. I want to strongly encourage you to join us so we can show support to our friends. We will have name tag Sunday and cookies too! They are celebrating their 24th anniversary at 4 PM on August 1 and would like to invite leaders from our church to attend.

Parenting in a World of Technology

Even the most “hip” “cool” and “groovey” of us parents can have a hard time keeping up with all the technology our children and teens seem to have at their fingertips.  So where do we go so as to not look so “old?”  I recently came across a new resource called from a group of trusted Christian leaders and parents.  Iparent uses short video and articles to give you the heads up on the apps your kids are using and suggestions on whether or not they should be.  Check out and engage in the conversation with your kids about technology.
