A Message from Dr. Buckley
 
 
 

Summer! I can still remember that awesome feeling on the very last day of school. Like yesterday I recall picking up my report card, saying goodbye to my friends, and looking forward to the three months of swimming, baseball, and family vacations. The summers were always great times with family, free from the pressure of tests and school work. Even for adults the months of June, July, and August provided a needed break. The summertime also provided great opportunities for ministry and outreach.

With summer already here First Baptist of Sulphur, our student, children, adult Bible study, and worship ministries are gearing up for big summertime events. Vacation Bible School, Teen College, Centrifuge, Children’s Camp, Weekly Children’s fun activities, our Midweek Youth Service and Bible study, our Senior adult ministry, and our Wednesday evening mission’s program. These ministry opportunities promise to provide our teenagers, children, and adults with the encouragement to grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ. The days of summer maybe hazy and crazy, but they are far from being lazy.

Much of what happens in these strategic flagship ministries occur during the summertime. Dozens of children and teenagers will participate in these ministries. Please prayerfully invite families in your neighborhood to be our guests in these activities. Please lift up Amy Bruce, Children’s Minister, Tom Bruce, Interim Youth Director, and Clint Smith, our Summer Youth Intern, all of adults who will serve in our children’s and youth ministries.

Summer at First Baptist Church of Sulphur is not just for kids. Activities have been planned for adults too. We are working hard to enlarge our adult Bible study ministry. A new Bible study group for young adult couples has been launched with 13 adults ages 20-39 in attendance the first Sunday. Our emphasis is creating an environment where believers can share life together. Additional new study groups will be created throughout the summer and early fall, as we seek to transition our Sunday School to better meet the needs of the millennial generation. Amy Bruce our Educational/Children’s Minister has planned a great Bible study campaign designed to provide opportunities for growth and enlargement of our Sunday School. I hope you’ll personally be involved in these ministry activities.

I believe the next three to six months has the potential to be one of the most remarkable periods in the history of our church. Perhaps by the end of the year God will send FBC Sulphur a Pastor and a Youth Director to provide leadership for FBC to become a healthy and growing church again. But before that growth and transformation can occur we must allow God to stretch our faith, to prepare us for that experience. Will you join with us in praying for this exciting new chapter?
