Our Purpose

To bring people to Jesus Christ and membership in His family, develop believers to Christlike maturity, and equip them for their ministry in the church and their mission in the world, in order to worship God and magnify His name.

The origins of Mother’s Day as
celebrated in the United
States date back to the 19th century. In the years before
the Civil War, Ann Reeves Jarvis of West Virginia helped
start “Mothers’ Day Work Clubs” to teach local women
how to properly care for their children. These clubs later
beca
me a unifying force in a region of the country still
divided over the Civil War. In 1868
,
Jarvis organized
“Mothers’ Friendship Day,” at which mothers gathered
with former Union and Confederate soldiers to promote
reconciliation. Another precursor to Mothe
r’s Day came
from the abolitionist and suffragette Julia Ward Howe. In
1870 Howe wrote the “Mother’s Day Proclamation,” a call
to action that asked mothers to unite in promoting w sdsdsdsorld
peace. In 1873 Howe campaigned for a “Mother’s Peace
Day” to be celebrat
ed every June 2,
honoring peace,
motherhood and womanhood.
It was due to her effor ts
that in 1873, women in 18 cities in America held a
Mother’s Day for Peace gathering.
Howe rigorously
championed the cause of
the
official celebration of
Mother’s Day and d
eclaration of an official holiday on the
day.
S
he held meetings every year in Boston on Mother’s
Peace Day and took care that the day was well observed.
Her remarkable contribution in the establishment of
Mother’s Day remains in the fact that she organized
a
special day
dedicated to peace. It is a landmark in the
history of Mother’s Day in the sense that this was to be
the precursor to the modern Mother’s Day celebrations.

Brother Billy's Corner

 

Because of man’s propensity to sin, we’re surrounded by opportunities to forgive others. Perhaps we’ve been unfairly criticized, disappointed by a broken promise, or harmed financially or physically. In this broken world, the list of wrongdoings is endless. The question is: How are we to deal with the offenses of others? Peter was wondering the same thing, so He asked Jesus how often he should forgive a brother who sins against him. He probably thought he was being vey generous by suggesting, “Up to seven times?” But Jesus replied, “Up to seventy times seven” (Matt. 18:21-22). In other words, forgive every single time you’re wronged. Forgiveness doesn’t mean finding reasons to justify or excuse someone’s behavior, nor is it about forgetting what happened or pretending it never occurred. Genuine forgiveness requires deliberate action on our part. While acknowledging that a wrong has been committed, we choose to release the offender from any obligation toward us and surrender our perceived right to hurt him or her back. In essence, we’re no longer holding the unfair, hurtful behavior against the person but are extending mercy, just as God has done toward us. The only alternative is to hold onto anger and bitterness. Though we may think we are punishing the wrongdoer, we’re actually hurting ourselves. Resentment is like sludge that contaminates the mind, clogs the heart, and poisons the soul. Untreated anger turns into bitterness, which hinders our relationship with God and others and leaves us vulnerable to Satan’s attacks (Eph. 4:26-27). The only remedy is forgiveness. Copied
