Our Mission is to locate the lost, bring them to Christ, and to help all Christians grow into the stature of the fullness of Christ.
As members of the body of Christ this verse reveals one of the precious privileges that is ours in Christ - we are a chosen race and a royal priesthood. We have been made a holy nation and a special people who have become God’s own precious possession. Peter views us as a new spiritual Israel as he picks up what is said of Israel in Exodus 19:5-6. As God’s chosen ones, Christians are to proclaim the excellencies of the one who has summoned us from darkness and ushered us into His marvelous light!
We have been called, chosen, consecrated and set apart for a very particular purpose. As we journey through this life of pain and sorrow we are to proclaim to the world in every way the excellent glories of our heavenly Father. The One who redeemed us from the darkness of sin and death into the glories of His life and light in Christ.
Each one of us are honored to serve our Lord and you in this capacity. This is a great congregation with good members that love each other and want to serve our God in many ways. You make it a joy to be an elder of this congregation. In any position of leadership there are joys, moments of celebration and of course troublesome times. It comes with the job.
Being a part of the family at Thomaston Road is one of the most wonderful events one can experience this side of the Great Beyond. If you have not become a part of it, we encourage you to do so.
This year has been the most challenging the church has faced in this country, in our life time. COVID-19 came on the scene and it was like nothing our country has experienced. We all have our different beliefs and attitudes toward what or how this thing should have or should be handled. Even among the men serving as elders, we each have different perspectives that range from being cautious to this thing is a conspiracy.
While the physical is a concern, we, the elders, need to concentrate and find ways to help this congregation spiritually and to be the leaders that carry out the call of the Lord. We are assembling to allow those that wish to attend the opportunity to do so. We still feel that we should respect each other - respect the masked seating area and keep our distance. That being said, we know this can be a serious situation for some. If you feel like you could be or know you are affected by this virus, please worship with us on line. If you do not feel good - PLEASE STAY HOME!!!
It is our prayer that this whole situation will soon end. You have to be the judge as to rather you can or should attend. We solicit your prayers as we try to be the men God has called us to be. We often fail but we will do our best to follow God’s will.
Thank you for allowing us to serve you in this capacity.
