A WORD FROM PASTOR!
Welcome to all mothers who are either in attendance today or watching this service online.
The past two years have been quite a challenge for every individual on the planet, but especially Moms!
(Don't worry, Dads, your day is coming soon).
While there are no classes on how to be a Mother during a Global Pandemic, I believe if there ever is one in the future, Moms could write the workbook for it! Let's pray such a class is never needed, though!
While we are on the other side of this pandemic struggle, (seemingly) there are still challenges that parents face, especially if the goal is to raise a child to serve the Lord.
The Bible tells us this: Proverbs 22:6 (NKJV) 6 Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it.
We want to continue to be a church that comes alongside both Moms and Dads who have the tremendous responsibility of training the next generation to be friends of God.
If the past two years have shown us anything, it is that parents must pay close attention to what is taking place in our schools, and yes, even in our entertainment choices! We believe it is vital to be part of the church of Jesus Christ to provide families with greater assistance as they shepherd their children.
I would encourage you today to be Mama Bears! Watch out for your children, pay attention to what they are taught, and be sure to know who their friends are.
It is that it is up to you to speak life and emotional health to your children! They need to know that God has an amazing plan for their lives, and you will do everything you can to facilitate that plan!
Mothers, please rest assured that we honor you! We applaud you! We thank God for who you are and encourage you never to let the enemy of your soul beat you down! Of course, you're not perfect, and we know that's no surprise to you, but you have a wonderful ministry right inside your home, so never doubt the importance of the task!
So, on behalf of the leadership here at (Cornerstone Baptist Church), we want to honor you today as special people on the front lines doing God's work!
May God richly bless you this year and the years ahead!
