Re-gathering the Church

As the church, we are better together and we are extremely excited to take the next step in re-gathering as the church and meeting in person again.  As we begin to prepare for this transition, our staff has been praying and meeting regularly to plan these next steps as we continue to follow the recommendations of the local, state and federal guidelines.  This transition will look and feel different than normal services, as we will continue to maintain social distancing of 6-feet, sanitizing areas, and wearing masks.  We encourage those at risk or elderly to continue to watch our services online and participate from home.  Our modified schedule is listed below, as well as on Facebook.  We are looking forward to visiting with you face to face.

Pray and Give

Our work as First Baptist Jennings is alive and well. While the coronavirus (COVID-19) global pandemic is affecting our lives, the Lord is using this threatening force to open doors for us to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with others through creative ways. While communities, cities and even countries are slowing to a standstill, the Lord still reigns in all of His power and glory. Continue to PRAY.

We Praise the Lord for the church’s giving pattern over the last several months. As we find ourselves practicing being the “CHURCH” in new creative ways without assembling as the large congregation, here is how you can continue to exercise your giving.

Pastor Rammon

Dear Church Family:

It was might great honor and privilege to visit pastor Rammon (pronounced like Ramen Noodles) while visiting India recently.  Pastor Rammon and his family are wonderful Christians who are serving the Lord on top of Yercaud Mountain.  Yercaud Mountain is a land mark for people who travel in India.  The Mountain is beautiful and the climate is always temperate.  There are many hotels and spas on top of the mountain, and people come from miles around to drive the 17 hairpin turns to the top of the mountain.  Along the route, monkeys greet you and will steal you camera if you stop and take a picture.  The mountain is filled with coffee farms, and many villages are tucked into the mountains, centered around the coffee business.  It is an idyllic scene.

 

However, Christianity is not very popular on Yercaud Mountain.  Pastor Rammon believes that God has given him a vision to reach 66 villages with the gospel.  These villages have a total population of 1.5 million people.  And the “wee little man” rides his motorcycle to these villages with the hopes of planting churches all over the mountain.  In one village, a family has been reached for Jesus.  Pastor Rammon holds weekly services in the man’s home.  The village leaders told the whole village not to speak this man’s family.  The man told me, “Jesus is enough for me” , (and then he laughed)

 

Please pray for Pastor Rammon and his family.  We will be getting emails from pastor Rammon and these will be published here.

 

Blessings,

Dr. j
