Sunday March 6, 2016 - Living the Dream!

On Sunday, March 6th, we are going to have a BIG EVENT. We are planning to have a day centered around the future of our church, Sauldam Baptist Church. I believe in our church and I also believe we are a vital part of each church family and our community. After the Sunday morning service we will have a covered dish "dinner on the grounds" likened to that of homecoming. Then we will have a meeting of all of us togehter discussing the future of our church. You will be given a questionnaire asking your thoughts on a variety of issues related to our future. It will be a time where you can express your thoughts about your church. I believe this will be the beginning of an exciting and bright future for Sauldam. I'm looking forward to "Living the Dream." You will receive a letter in the next several weeks giving you more details. Please begin now to pray about this all important time in the life of our church!
Love Ya,
Pastor John

Beth Moore's blog and the Book of James!


The ladies of Sauldam enjoyed a great night of Bible Study last night. This session is by our old friend, Beth Moore. If you've never been to a study by Beth, you'll be surprised. She's funny and entertaining and just brimming with enthusiasm for the Word of God. I was doing a bit of browsing - and I know I should have been doing my homework - and came across Beth Moore's blog. I thought I'd share this link with you. We are planning a trip to hear Beth Moore speak in Charleston in August abd we meet every Tuesday evening from 7  to 9 pm. You do not have to attend our church to attend Women's Bible Study or join us in August. Just contact us if you'd like to join us! We'd love to have you!

Then Jesus said, "Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest." Matthew 11:28

A young lady confidently walked around the room while explaining stress
management to an audience. With a raised glass of water (everyone knew she
was going to ask the ultimate question, 'half empty or half full?', she fooled
them all.

"How heavy is this glass of water?" she inquired with a smile.
Answers, called out, ranged from 8 oz. to 20 oz.
She replied, "The absolute weight doesn't matter. It depends on how long
I hold it. If I hold it for a minute, that's not a problem. If I hold it for an
hour, I'll have an ache in my right arm. If I hold it for a day, you'll have to
call an ambulance. In each case it's the same weight, but the longer I hold
it, the heavier it becomes." She continued, "And that's the way it is with
stress. If we carry our burdens all the time, sooner or later, as the burden becomes
increasingly heavy, we won't be able to carry on."
"As with the glass of water, you have to put it down for a while and rest
before holding it again. When we're refreshed, we can carry on with the burden.
So, as early in the evening as you can, put all your burdens down. Don't carry them
through the evening and into the night. Pick them up tomorrow."
"Whatever burdens you're carrying now, let them down for a moment. Relax,
pick them up later after you've rested."
 
This week someone forwarded this email to me. It was followed by cute sayings on how the world suggests you relax and accept your fate. "Just face it...sometimes you're the pigeon and sometimes you're the statue." It got me thinking how many times we, who are Christians, are called to lay down our burdens and rest, not in defeat of the circumstances, but in joyful rest knowing we can rest in the arms of our Lord who will make our yoke easy and our burdens light.

"Amen" from the movie, Lilies of the Field

The choir's been practicing this song, but we've been struggling with the different parts, so here's a clip from the movie. I can't guarantee we'll sound like Sidney Poitier and the nuns, but we're trying!
You Tube includes these notes with the clip: This is the final scene in the film directed by Ralph Nelson. It's the scene where Homer Smith, played by Sidney Poitier leaves Mother Maria, played by Lilia Skala after building them a chapel. After taking one last look at the chapel he built, Smith, knowing that his work is done, slips into his car and drives quietly off into the night.

Thieves, we forgive you!

Many of you may not have heard that our church was robbed again last week! Thieves cut lines and stole the AC unit from behind the old church. This is at least the third time that the church has been robbed. This time could have been much more serious! The church and Martin Hall, on Wednesday night, were full of children and youths coming to Wednesday Night Kids. Parents were helping in the kitchen. Teachers were arriving. The finance committee and deacons were meeting. All the while an open gas line was spewing poison! The thieves had cut a pipe to steal the copper fittings. When the gas repairman came, he said it should have blown sky high! In his words, "God must really love you folks!" And He does.
Please remember these thieves  in your prayers. They must be desperate to be preying on our community as they are. There have been MULTIPLE crimes in the area - tractors, lawn mowers, trailers, and equipment stolen and continuous theft of copper from AC units and electrical services. Odds are these thieves live among us,  maybe they've been to our church, maybe they live next door to you. But whatever the case, they need to stop. We need to watch out for each other and report anything unusual going on. Most of these crimes are happening during the day. These thieves didn't intend to threaten the lives of all of us last week. But they almost killed scores of us. Thank you, God, for your protection and help us to forgive as you have forgiven us.

Need a little Frozen Delight?

Robin Lane's mom's recipe from Women's Bible Study on Tuesday. We still have room for you!

One pint sour cream
3/4 cup sugar
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
2 sliced bananas
3/4 cup sliced strawberries, cherries, or blueberries

Photos from Vacation Bible School!

We've all seen lots of photos on Facebook from vacation Bible School, but here are just a few more. Want a click link to the Sauldam Facebook page? Take a look in the left toolbar. Click there to hop on over! This page feeds on to the Facebook and shows up on the wall, slowly sometimes, but eventually!  Here's just a few more photos.














New Women's Bible Study begins Tuesday, July 5, 2011.

The new study is In My Father's House by Mary Kassian.  We will explore how women need to get to know God as Father and relate to Him as blessed daughters.  We'll see how our relationships with our earthly fathers impact how we relate to Father God.

I have been praying for the study and for everyone who will participate and ask that you will pray for us also. If you have any questions, please contact me.

See you Tuesday, July 5th!

Questions or changes on bylaws?

Please post comments below each section as it is posted. That way we will have details and concerns where they need to be.

Friday, May 6, 2011

One of the good things about being a growing church is that we are welcoming lots of new folks! It's important that everyone, both old and new, understand how and why we do the things we do in our church. With that in mind, I thought I'd publish the list of church by-laws. These are rules and regulations, so to speak, which we've all agreed to be governed by. The most recent copy was approved November, 1999. There's been some talk that we might want to revisit and revise them, but the first step is to know what is currently in place. I will publish them in sections and then post the whole thing together as  printable sheets.

SAULDAM BAPTIST CHURCH BY-LAWS

The answer is YES. What is the question?

Now shouldn't that be our attitude?
How many times do we answer - or think - NO, before we even hear the question. We are ready to find all the reasons we can't do a thing, instead of weighing the request with God's scales. Does this request allow me to show God's love? Is it a way I can serve?

Philippians 4:6 ESV

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.

2 Cor. 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! NIV

Last week I drove from here in Charleston to the Upstate. It always amazes me to leave in springtime and just 4 hours up I26 arrive in winter. The change in every tree, every blade of grass,even the sounds of the birds is amazing. If God can make such massive changes right before our eyes, how can we find it so hard to change? Let springtime renew your desire to be a new creation for the Lord!
