General Baptist Rural Church Conference

Written by admin on February 17th, 2008

I spent Februrary 16 with about 125 members of churches in the MoArk Association of General Baptists in Malden Missouri. The topic was the up-to-date rural church. I had a great time. I encouraged them to make use of the materials under Practical Helps to study what their churches are currently doing and to consider changes. I also called their attention to the fact that the first four chapters of the report of the most recent Missouri Rural Church Study are now posted on the site. I hope that we can add a chapter each week until all 12 are up.

General Baptists are a Baptist “sub-denomination” with churches in the midwest, mostly. Their national offices are in Popular Bluff, Missouri.

On Sunday, February 24th, the Morning Star Missionary Baptist Church near Boligee, Alabama will be dedicating their new building. It replaces the one that was burned by arsonists just over two years ago. It should be a blessed event. We will be taking about 1,000 children’s book which have come to us to pass along to this church. In planning their new building the ministry of a library of the children of the community was identified.
