FOR SUCH A ONE AS THIS

vacation bible school is right around the corner!

Robbie Sox // Minister of Music

Our Easter presentation, For Such a One as This, will be April 1 at 6 p.m.

opportunities to serve

“Jesus the man, the Son of God, walked with the people and healed them by His love. He gave His life for the world’s remiss. What did you give for such a One as this?” What a probing question. Jesus gave his life to heal and love. What have we given for such a One as this? This musical explores the thoughts and feelings of some of the people who were with Jesus during his last hours. Such as Judas, Simon the Cyrene, John the Beloved, Pilate, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of Jesus, and the two thieves that hung beside him. What we see in them will help us explore who Jesus is to us. Bring your friends and relatives to this presentation of For Such a One As This.

bCBC great commission resurgence update Jim Russell // Rescue Minister

Brushy Creek is part of the Southern Baptist Great Commission Resurgence. Our mission projects will become more strategic, and our missions education more proactive. We celebrate the recent appointment of Candie Charping as an IMB missionary to South Asia. Let’s keep Candie in our daily prayers. We are currently planning the following mission projects for this year: Brazil (June 4-12): contact Benji Ladd Peru (June 15-23): contact Roger Blackwell Japan (July 6-16): contact Jim Russell New York City (July 15-21): contact Gary Wheeler London (August 3-13): contact Lee Daniels Joanna VBS (July 26-29): contact Benji Ladd At our annual Missions Day, September 16, we hope to unveil Unreached People Group(s) for Brushy Creek to adopt over the next few years. UPGs are people groups with 2% or less evangelical Christians. This will be a wonderful opportunity for BCBC to become even more strategic in our mission efforts.

a tale of three kisses David Kay // Associate Pastor

Sometimes, a kiss really does say it all. Beginning Palm Sunday and the following two Sundays, Dr. Carter and I will be preaching about three specific kisses recorded in the Bible. That’s right, I said KISSES! When is the last time you went to church and heard about a kiss? I promise all three messages will be meaningful in your walk with Christ. So come on, bring a friend, and let’s celebrate our risen Lord together. Can’t wait to see you here.
