10th Pastoral Anniversary

February 27, 2015 - March 8, 2015   Time: TBA
Location: Morris Street Baptist Church

Please join the Pastor’s Aid Ministry in celebration of our Pastor’s 10th Anniversary Celebration. Sunday March 8th is the day of the actual celebration service; our guest Preacher for that day will be Reverend Richard Douglass of the Zion Hill Missionary Baptist Church in Rochester, NY. This will be followed by a repast in the fellowship hall. In addition to our Sunday service, we will have several events leading up to this Special Day of Celebration.

Prayer is an important component to all we do, so we invite our Church Family to join us in corporate and individual prayer starting on Friday February 27th. Our celebration begins with Ten for Ten. This means we are asking each member to engage in prayer for 10 minutes daily or how often you choose, and when doing so, with a specific focus on our Pastor, his family, our church family. This can be during our weekly bible study, Tuesday morning conference call, and any other prayer events you have in your daily routine.

On Friday we will also have our Quarterly Family Night Out at 7:00pm – and without breaking tradition, we invite you join us for fun, fellowship, and a hint of competition at the Ashley bowling lanes 1568 Sam Rittenburg Blvd.

Saturday February 28th  from 2:00pm - 4:00pm – an afternoon Tea to honor Sister Griffin with a Celebration of Praise through Song.

Thursday and Friday March 5th and 6th have been set aside for our Pastor’s Appreciation Services and we are so excited that Pastor Isaac Holt and Royal Missionary Baptist Church accepted our invitation to be with us Thursday evening, and Reverend Eldwin Griffin of the Mt. Alpha Baptist Church and his congregation has accepted our invitation for Friday. Each service will be at 7:00pm nightly.

On Saturday March 7th at 9:00am, we will be engaging in a Community Service Project in honor of this occasion. Even though the 10th year anniversary observance warranted a full celebration event, Pastor specifically made this request, to support the community. Members are asked to come out to fellowship as we work on our service and support. You don’t need to bring anything; we just need you to show-up, ready to work. Once the packages are complete, we will board the bus and head to both locations to deliver our gifts and a word of prayer.

Our projects are as follows:

Assemble lunch bags for One80 Place. These packaged lunches will be stored and refrigerated to be distributed to Veterans at the VA Hospital while they wait on services and appointments. We will also include a note of thanks and encouragement for their condition.

Gift Bags for Jenkins Orphanage. McDonalds Gift Cards will be purchased for 15 young ladies and package them in gift bags. These gift packages will include a message of encouragement and empowerment for these young ladies and also a way for them to enjoy an afternoon out for lunch.

As you can imagine, Pastor’s Aid is truly excited. The year 2015 is an important year in the life of our church, marking the150th year of our founding and the 10th year our Pastor’s calling as our spiritual leader. Under his vision and leadership we are set on the path to realize our mission: Morris Street Baptist is a Body of Baptized Believers, Led by the Holy Spirit to make Disciples of Christ through Teaching, Evangelism and Worship.
