Welcome to Liberty First Baptist Church!
Rev. Mark Kannarney, Pastor
YOU ARE INVITED TO COME WORSHIP WITH US!
We are located at 400 Edgemont Avenue in Liberty, South Carolina between Liberty Elementary School and the old Liberty Middle School.
We are blessed to have offered a preschool program for children ages 3 and 4 for over 35 years; providing them with an early education in a christian environment where they are
"LEARNING A B C.; 1 2 3; AND G O D!"
Preschool information and events are located to the right under "Announcements"
TAKE THE 429 CHALLENGE!
"Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth,
but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace
unto the hearers."
From the Pastor...
As we are now in the middle of summer during the heart of vacation time I’m grateful that we are maintaining good attendance in Sunday school, Sunday morning and evening worship, and Wednesday nights. I believe that we are displaying some evidences of a healthy church that includes members who desire to be together to encourage, pray, fellowship, worship, and receive God’s Word. However we should never become complacent and we should always strive to improve. Let’s all do our part to remain faithful to the LORD as part of His church the rest of the summer. If you’ve missed Sunday school let me encourage you to come this Sunday and bring someone with you! Also I’d love to see new members in our choir! The summer months would be a great time to join the choir and be a part of an encouraging group who desires to sing to our great God and King to prepare the way for the preaching of God’s Word! As I’ve often said, I love a good choir special and a full choir is such a blessing to everyone in our worship service.
I’m also grateful that we have the powerful tool of prayer available as the family of God and I’d love to encourage everyone to utilize prayer for our church. I believe that prayer changes things and our church is only going to be as strong as our prayers that we offer to the LORD. As you pray for our church please remember our Nominating Committee as they seek God’s guidance for the upcoming church year that begins in September. As the Nominating Committee is faithfully doing their part, please be willing to do your part by praying about where God would have you to serve. In our church God has given a variety of gifts that, if used, will bring joy and blessing to those who are willing and obedient.
Also please join me in praying for our Deacon Election process that will be taking place during the month of July. This election if very important and should be something that we bathe in prayer. The biblical qualifications for the deacon are found in 1st Timothy 3:8-13 and in Acts 6:3. May God continue to lead us and bless us here at First Baptist! May we each do our part in fulfilling what the Author of Hebrews wrote about:
Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;) And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching (Hebrews 10:23-25).
See you on Sunday,
This will be a wonderful week for our kids and youth to go out and serve in our community in various ways. We'll begin each day at the church at 9am and conclude at 2pm.
This will be a luncheon on Tuesday, July 29 at 11:45 in the Fellowship Hall at FBC (main building). All local ministers are invited to join us to hear about the Released Time ministry that is available at LMS. This ministry is extremly low in funds and we hope local ministers will share the need with their congregations to sponsor a student (about 70 students) so this wonderful ministry can continue.
Bring your favorite homemade ice cream and join us on Sunday, August 3rd after evening worship for a wonderful time of fellowship and great ice cream!
Released Time is an elective at LMS where students are picked up by bus and taken to a church and taught God's Word by the Released Time teach Mrs. Tracey Jonakin. Funds are low and we hope to raise funds to keep this wonderful ministry available to our LMS students.
We offer preschool classes for 3 and 4 year old chilren (3 year meets Tuesdays and Thursdays; 4 year meets Monday, Wednesday and Friday). Contact us by email (email@example.com) or call 843-6131, ext. 5 for more information about our preschool program.
