February Meeting

We had no one volunteer to host the February 2018 fellowship meeting and weather can often be an issue as well – so – I am encouraging everyone to attend the Men of Victory Conference at Victory Baptist Church in Hanover on Saturday February 24th.

Pastor Jason Myers will be preaching at 10 AM and Dr Kenny Baldwin will be preaching at 11 AM and 1 PM.  The church will be serving a light breakfast at 9:30 AM and a lunch at Noon.  There is no charge, but an offering will be taken.

Please go to their website at http://victorychurchhanover.com/vbmens_con.html  to register.

The men of our church have attended the last 3 years and we have a large group already signed up for this year as well.


Special November Prayer Seminar

*Our November meeting will be in conjunction with a special one day Prayer Seminar hosted by Faith Bible Chapel in Carlisle on November 9th.  There is a registration charge.

Because of the critical need of our day, there has been an increasing burden among pastors to lead their people to pray. However, the busy and distracted lives of our people, and even of our church programs, have made it extremely difficult to see lasting victory.

This one-day seminar has been designed to not only challenge us to take our churches forward on their knees, but to provide ways to see it truly accomplished. There will be ideas and materials given that can help us lead our people to spiritual victory in genuine individual and corporate prayer. We will be putting the prayer challenges into practice during the seminar.

The Lord did a significant work in the personal lives of the pastors and evangelists that attended previous seminars. Feedback we received: “My life is different, my attitude is different, my preaching is different and the response at the altar on Sunday has been amazing.” “I have been so impacted I find myself speechless to know how to express it.” “I really enjoyed the seminar today. It was excellent.”

We encourage you to join us, along with Dr. Rick Flanders, as we desire to encourage churches to be powerful centers of prayer. It is our firm conviction that if pastors will be authentic men of prayer, they will then be able to sacrificially and persistently lead their people to do the same. It is our only hope today, and by God’s grace, it can become a reality!

All pastors and their pastoral staff are invited to participate in the seminar. The seminar begins at 8:45 a.m. with registration and a continental breakfast, and will conclude by 4:25 p.m. The seminar participation fee is $25.00 per person.

We trust that you will be able to join us for this life-changing seminar.

2018 Mid-state Choir Festival

Preparations are underway for the 2018 Mid-state Choir Festival.  This will be our 5th event.  This coming festival will be held at the Cedar Hill Baptist Church in Dillsburg and will be under the direction of Dr. Russ Shelley.

We invite all churches in our fellowship to participate.  YOU DO NOT HAVE TO HAVE A CHOIR.  In fact, this particular event is well suited for the smaller church that does not have a choir but may have some individuals that would love to be a part of this joint choir event.

Postcards have been sent and more are on the way with details.  The website is completely updated with pertinent information and we now have a Facebook page as well to keep everyone current.

For more information, please contact either Pastor Wes Gunther of the Cedar Hill Baptist Church (717-432-9590,  cedarhillbap@gmail.com) or Pastor Perry Kile of the Bible Baptist Church of New Bloomfield (717-582-8365, bbcnbpk@centurylink.net)
