Hello Saints of Saint John Baptist Church

This is Pastor Graham calling to inform you that the food drive giveaway is cancelled at Ridgewood Baptist Church for this Saturday (October 17th), but we will be back up and running next Saturday, October 24, 2020.

I also want to thank those who have given towards our Preschool campaign of $20,000.00 to help pay for our Preschool Staff health insurance through the end of the year.  So far, we raised about over $8,000.00.  Therefore, every donation counts.

The Trustees will be available between 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. on this Saturday, for those who would like to drop off your Tithes and Offering.

And finally, tune into our Sunday School and Virtual Worship service on Sunday Morning beginning at 9:00 a.m. and ending at 11:00 a.m.

Please stay safe and use wisdom and faith, wear your mask, and wash your hands often.

Yours truly

 

Pastor Jamey O. Graham
The Official Board of Deacons and Trustee Board



Sunday School Lesson - Oct. 19-25, 2020

SUNDAY SCHOOL LESSON - October 25th

October 25, 2020 -  October 30, 2020   Time: 9:00 AM

"Love Divine"
Background: 1 Corinthians 12:27-14:1
Devotional Reading: Romans 12:9-21
Keep in Mind
"And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity." (1 Corinthians 13:13, KJV)
Aim for Change
By the end of the lesson, we will DEFINE Paul's understanding of love as the apex of the Spirit-led life, APPRECIATE love as motivation to share our God-given gifts, and ACT in love when sharing our God-given gifts.
Focal Verses: 1 Corinthians 13:1-13

1If I could speak all the languages of earth and of angels, but didn’t love others, I would only be a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. 
If I had the gift of prophecy, and if I understood all of God’s secret plans and possessed all knowledge, and if I had such faith that I could move mountains, but didn’t love others, I would be nothing. 
If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it; but if I didn’t love others, I would have gained nothing.
Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud 
or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. 
It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. 
Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.
Prophecy and speaking in unknown languages and special knowledge will become useless. But love will last forever! 
Now our knowledge is partial and incomplete, and even the gift of prophecy reveals only part of the whole picture! 
10 But when the time of perfection comes, these partial things will become useless.
11 When I was a child, I spoke and thought and reasoned as a child. But when I grew up, I put away childish things. 
12 Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely.
13 Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love.
