  1. "LEAWOOD, Kan. (BP) — Pastor’s wife Marilane Carter has been missing since Aug. 1 when she departed her Overland Park, Kan., home, reportedly to seek psychiatric care in Birmingham, Ala.

  2. The first night of a week-long old fashioned tent meeting by Anchor Baptist Church in Astoria Oregon was a success as around 30 people attended. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the reaction of a tent meeting by the community raised plenty of concerns over the safety and well-being of those attending. Pastor Byers of Anchor Baptist Church assured the community and the city that all safety guidelines from the CDC will be followed. Anchor Baptist seemed to go above and beyond those extra measures. When a guest arrives, they are directed to a separate tent for temperature checks, and to log the

  3. It seems that in the last 30 or so years our churches have taken on a whole new look and atmosphere. As these changes were being made to attract more people to church, more and more people are having a hard time finding a church to call home? Recently, I attended a the Baptist Church that I grew up in. While growing up, this church was a very conservative church. Never would they have entertained the thought of having anything other than a piano or organ on the stage. Upon this visit, I noticed that everything has changed the last 30 years. No longer did the church look like a place of wo

  4. Dr. Rebekah "Beka" Horton died Saturday, June 27. Here is the link to her obituary. While not known as a Baptist, there are few Americans who have influenced the Baptist movement as much as Dr. Beka Horton. She was part of the duo that helped to put Christian schools on the map in America with the A Beka Book Christian School curriculum, and later, Home school curriculum. She, with her husband, started Pensacola Christian School, eventually becoming Pensacola Chrisitian Academy, Pensacola Christian College, Pensacola Theological Seminary, Rejoice radio, and several other ministries, besid

  6. The technological revolution we’ve seen in our Baptist churches over the past 20 or so years is astounding. What’s even more remarkable is the speed at which technology in the church continues to improve and change the way some worship. A few years back having one projector screen was a revolutionary way to change worship. Now many worship services include multiple screens, concert-style stage lighting, websites, apps, live streaming, Computerized Child Check-In, Video Announcements, video-based curriculum, podcasts, and more. Of course, many churches do not use some (or any) of these t

  7. Unfortunately my church does not have the luxury of being able to put up a sign with interchangeable messages, but I love it when I drive by a church and I see a clever saying on the sign. The following is a few of my favorites that I have come across. 1) This one here is good one for this time of year. "Come in and Let us prepare you for your finals" 2) Ouch. A direct message for the thieves from Clays Mill Rd. 3) This one hit the heart. 4) This one is straight to the point 5) This one is clever. Well done

  8. Maybe you have the daunting task of putting together your church bulletin, or just maybe you have read the church bulletin on a Sunday Morning and got a little chuckle on how a sentence was worded or the wrong placement of a comma. Here is a list of some of my favorite things that have somehow made its way into our church bulletin. Reminds us that we all need proofreaders at times. Enjoy. For those of you who have children and don't know it, we have a nursery down stairs. The eighth graders will be presenting Shakespeare's Hamlet in the church basement on Friday at 7 pm. The cong
