Chronicle in Concert at Bayou des Glaises Baptist Church - April 30, 2016 at 6:00PM

Come join us on Saturday, April 30, 2016 at 6:00 PM for some wonderful gospel music from Chronicle.  From their website:

Chronicle is based out of Holden, Louisiana we formed the group in April 2009 and thank God that we have had the opportunity to sing and minister across the southern United States. Group members are Greg Sullivan, Tim Kinchen and Missy Kinchen. The trio Chronicle will bring great southern and country gospel music along with praise and worship to it's audiences. We use tracks along with saxophone and acoustic guitar. It is such a privilege and honor for us to work with our producer Ricky Atkinson and Resting Place Music. This partnership along with much prayer has allowed the group to attain great success at radio. We all attend local churches in the Livingston Parish area, and all have conservative christian values. We believe that salvation only comes through the shed blood of Jesus Christ. We want to thank all who have contributed to the growth and success of Chronicle. Mostly we thank God for opening the doors and providing the means needed, to spread His glorious gospel. Looking forward to ministering at your church or function.

You can check out some of their music at http://chroniclegospelgroup.com/ or by searching for Chronicle Gospel Group on YouTube.

Newsletter - March 2016

Spring is well on the way now that February is behind us and most of us will not even remember that we had an extra day this year. By the way I hope that you did not forget your sweetheart this past month. We have been missing some of you at church and I know that things are getting busy but then again when is it not. I want to encourage you to set some time aside on Sunday mornings for our Lord and Savior as we study His word and praise His name and let someone else know about what is going on around here.

Now here is what we can see going in right now:

  • Mar 12 at 6:30pm Saturday game night for the Grown ups. Come join in and bring a friend as we play some old school board games and have some snacks. 
  • Mar 19 10:30am - 12:30 children’s Easter celebration to include an egg hunt and games. 
  • Mar 27 7am Easter sunrise service come join us as we celebrate an empty tomb and the resurrection of Jesus Christ. 
  • April 30 6pm Southern gospel music concert featuring “Chronicle” love offering will be taken up. Make your plans to attend and bring some friends. 

Now for the pastor‘s bite: This March brings with it the promise of spring as people start planting gardens and crops and also this year Easter. I truly love Easter and one of my favorite Christmas songs is “It’s about the Cross” by Go Fish, and yes I did say Christmas songs. It’s just hard for me to not think of Jesus’ birth without thinking of the cross and the grave. Let me set this up some women went to the tomb on the first day of the week and seeing the stone rolled away thought that Jesus’ body had been taken. As the word spread Mary Magdalene returns to the tomb searching for the body. when this verse takes place John 20 vs.16 Jesus said to her, “Mary.” She turned toward him and cried out in Aramaic, “Rabboni!” (which means “Teacher”).(niv) I feel like a lot of time we are like Mary. In our head we know that Jesus rose from the grave like He said He would, but in our life we live as if someone just moved the body. Do you realize that the same Jesus who rose from the grave is the same Holy Spirit that lives inside you and I if we have accepted His gift and asked for Him to forgive us of our sins. So let’s remember that this Easter and celebrate His resurrection and not just an empty grave. Have a Blessed Easter and come join us on Sundays, I‘ll save you a seat.

In Christ’s Love

Pastor, Eugene
