“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared beforehand for us to do.” — Ephesians 2:10
I Am Who You Say I Am
Labels, we all have them. They are often used to define us in our families and our world. Sometimes they are a joy and sometimes they are a burden. What labels are you known by? Daughter, wife, mom, pastor’s wife, friend, sister? As well as a multitude of others. Labels you wear proudly, maybe ones you even give to yourself. Some labels may be unfair; not who you really are nor who you want to be.
In God’s eyes we are so much more than the sum total of all the labels we pick up throughout our lives. Come join us as we celebrate together Ephesians 2:10 “For we are God’s handiwork created in Christ Jesus to do good works with God prepared in advance for us to do.”
Created and handcrafted, fully designed by God with a purpose for life. We will look at saying to God “I am who YOU say I am” with joy and gladness.
This year our annual conference will be held on Monday, Nov. 8, 2021 from 9 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. This is in conjunction with the N.C. Pastors’ Conference and the Baptist state convention’s annual meeting.
Our annual conference is a little bit of meeting and a lot of worship and fellowship.
We are looking forward to seeing you all.
