VISION NIGHT

Sunday, April 30, 2017, 6 PM

Crossroads Community Church

1420 Lakeside Drive, Yorktown

Every Spring, we gather for one night to share our vision and to highlight some of the many ministry and mission projects going on in our churches. This is a time of worship, inspiration, testimony, and vision casting. It is also a fun time of exploring what God is doing in our churches through the Mission Fair. (It is not too late to reserve a table to showcase some ministry or mission project from you church.) As usual, we will have light refreshments during the Mission Fair.

Out theme for this year is “Cross Culture”. There is a double meaning to these words. First, as Christians, we are called to adopt the “culture of the cross.” As Paul says, “to put off your old self… and be made new in the attitude of your minds” (Ephesians 4.22-23). The other meaning is that we must cross man-made cultural barriers as we come together as one body. Come celebrate that with us.

Whether you are new to the PBA, or you have been part of us your whole life, there is always something new to discover on Vision Night. This is an event for the WHOLE CHURCH. It is a great opportunity to connect with people from other churches, and to gain ideas and insights from them.

 

IMPORTANT NOTICE!

During our Vision Night worship service, we will be voting on two churches to become full members of the association, and another to enter Watchcare. Search Point Bible Fellowship with Pastor Larry Brayboy, is a church plant preparing for their public launch.  They have completed a year of Watchcare.  Antioch Baptist Church, with Pastor William Greene, has also completed a year of Watchcare. Shalom Baptist Church, with Pastor Derrick Perkins has applied to enter into Watchcare.

Since these requests require a vote, we will briefly go into a Business Session. Only those who have been named as Messengers from their church for the year can vote. If you are not sure of your church’s messengers eligibility contact Linda at pba@peninsulabaptist.org.
