25th Anniversary Party

Hi, and welcome to my Central Baptist Church blog. Thanks for visiting!

Saturday morning we had a work day at the church. Lots of folks joining together to do a number of important tasks! Cleaning, changings bulbs, cleaning, replacing ceiling tiles, cleaning, repairing stuff, cleaning, sound maintenance, and cleaning.

Saturday afternoon from 2 -4 there was an anniversary reception for David and Linda Beguin. The fellowship hall was full of Beguins, Holroyds, church members and miscellaneous friends. I looked through David and Linda's wedding album and was reminded of a lot of old memories. David and Linda have changed alot in 25 years....haven't we all?

Have a blessed day!

God Cares for You!

Hi, and thanks for visiting the CBC blog!

This is the Byard family! Mark, Cathy and Shannon. Mark is a deacon in the church, teaches one of the adult Sunday School classes, and keeps a bunch of notes at all the meetings so he can tell the Pastor what they talked about at the last meeting...what do you call that? Oh yeah...gullible! haha Just kidding. Mark is a busy guy at the church and does a great job! He's also our Apple aficionado. Anything Mac, and Marks the Man!

Cathy is busy, too. She leads one of the children's choirs, and she also gives group vocal instruction to the adult choir. I'm not sure exactly what she majored in at college, but it had a lot to do with vocal music and it shows in her ability to teach! She also works in the nursery, plays the piano, teaches piano and voice, etc.

Shannon is just as sweet as you would expect her to be having the parents she has!

Last night's sermon was most excellent. Brother John's message was about how, More than anyone is God who cares for you! If you click the title of this post..."The Byard Family" can hear Brother John's sermon.

Have a great day...and thanks for visiting!

Don't Be Envious of Others

Welcome to the Central Baptist Church Blog. I hope you've had a blessed day!

Today I had the chance to lunch with our Youth Minister, Lynn Schuyler. Lynn is super guy, and with all that he does for our young people you might say he is a "Super Man". haha

Lynn and his wife, Jenny, have two beautiful daughters...Katie and Megan. They are expecting a third child in a few months.

Speaking of having kids, there was an announcement in the newspaper the other day about identical twin boys that were born. I think the couple was Christian because the first-born son was named Hosea. I think the father is a fireman...the second son was named HoseB! haha it's not such a good joke.

If you're ever up...or down...our way, I hope you stop in and see us at Central Baptist. Meet Bro. Lynn. I know you'll like him as much as we all do.

God Bless You

P.S. Click on the title of this post to hear Sunday night's message from Pastor Waterloo. He preaches about the Danger of Becomming Envious...and it's a doozie!

The Road Ahead

The Road Ahead group at CBC...unmarried young people from high school graduation age up to 25 years old. They are a fun group of excellent folks.

They met together on Friday night for pizza, a "life lesson", and fun & games! Everybody had a great time. Highlites of the evening were a spirited game of "ImagineIFF", and listening to Matt, Ben and J.P. laugh while reading "The Far Side Gallery" of cartoons. Unfortunately, we were missing some of the group...those who had already left town and returned to college life.

The Road Ahead group is hosted by Gerald & Mary Graham. The objective is to provide them with practical information applicable to young people who are entering adulthood and confronting for the first time the responsibilities of managing life on their own. They have learned about purchasing a home, investing for the future and other aspects of finance, and advice about marriage and relationships.

Tomorrow is "100% attendance" Sunday at Central Baptist. Services are at 8:30 and 11:00 with Sunday School in between.

God Bless You.
