THURSDAY: Pray for God to bless the ministries of our churches and that those ministries might be fruitful as they reach out to their ministry field with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
FRIDAY: Pray for God to raise up leaders in our association and in our churches. God is still in the business of calling folks to ministry! Pray for an outpouring of his call in our association!
SATURDAY: Pray that the folks of our association will grow stronger in their spiritual health and will be actively engaged in producing good fruit as they work, play, and worship.
SUNDAY: Pray that your heart will crave the will of God to be manifest through your life. Pray about your personal involvement and how you can make a spiritual difference in your home, your job, and your world.
Fellowship Baptist Association is a network of Southern Baptist Convention and Missouri Baptist Convention churches committed to work together in an effort to follow the Great Commandment and fulfill the Great Commission. Our churches are primarily located in Benton, Hickory, and St. Clair counties in the great state of Missouri.....and we hope you'll consider making one of them your church home!!
A seminary professor once asked a question of some international students, "What do you understand the term 'Fellowship' to mean?" There was a moment of silence and one finally said, "Fellows in the same ship?" Now, isn't that even more true than what we usually think of "Fellowship?"! I hope as you think of Fellowship Baptist Association, it's in the light of this unique definition....that we are here together.....serving Christ and one another.
