From the Pastor
I am so excited that each week we are seeing more of our folks return after getting their COVID vaccines. In addition, we are being blessed with new guests each week. I am expecting many to set Easter as their return date. What an awesome day that represents for new beginnings! Please pray with me during this very critical time that God will continue to bring back those who have been out due to COVID, and that He will even add new members to the work He is doing at RPBC! Also, please look for guests in the service you attend each week and try to speak to them, thank them for coming, and invite them to come back.

You are reminded that the business meeting scheduled for last Wednesday evening was rescheduled for this coming Wednesday evening (March 24th). New Business will include a motion to license Ethan Wilson to the Gospel ministry. Also, we will elect messengers to the Associational Spring Meeting scheduled at Journey Fellowship church (Hwy 11, next to the county health department in Carriere), April 1st at 6:30pm.

We have 8 who have volunteered to attend the ASM as messengers (counting 3 staff members whose volunteer status is questionable!). A messenger is just a member who has been elected to formally represent their church. This enables you to vote on any motions that may be presented. I hope we can have a great representation so that your pastor won’t be embarrassed, especially since I am preaching!

Blessed to be Your Pastor,
GOAL: $5,000

RECIEVED: $3,033
