Sermon - Jim Andrews, Pastor

The Consummation of the Age: Part II

Matthew 24:15-31

Word From the Pastor

I personally love history. That in part is because through the past I better understand the present. And through biblical prophecy I have a better grip on the future. So, if sometimes we feel we do not know what is going on in the present, we at least take comfort in the fact that through the Scriptures we have read the last chapter of the book. We know how it all turns out. In the end it is a rout. We win and we win big and in the interim, our sovereign God causes all things to come out His way. Evil cannot avail. Righteousness, peace and justice at last will prevail in Christ our coming King. That’s the thing. Nothing else matters.

Operation Christmas Child

Operation Christmas Child

Again…Thank you all!

215 Christmas boxes were provided for distribution through Operation Christmas Child. Hall Street Baptist Church which has been the drop off church for Operation Christmas Child boxes for the last seven years has for the past four years commented as follows:

“We always wait for you to come because Lake Bible always delivers on our hopes for a good outcome!”

Such a reputation for dedication is always A Glory to God and, of course, this Year we have, once again, lived up to meaning of our mission theme!
