Pre– 131st Annual Meeting for Ashe Baptist Association


It is hard to believe that the 2017 Annual Meeting of the Ashe Baptist Association of Churches is upon us! On Friday, August 18 beginning at 2:00 at Warrensville Baptist Church and on Saturday , August 19 beginning at 9:00 at Midway Baptist Church we are scheduled to meet. What a blessing of music, reports, preaching, prayers, eating and fellow shipping together! Our Moderator this year is Mr. Jerry Powers and  Vice-moderator is Rev. Michael Carter. We have a new clerk this year, Mrs. Myra    Phillips from the Bald Mountain Baptist Church. Preachers scheduled to preach to us are Rev. Johnny Goodman, Rev. Evan Moore, Rev. Steve LeaShomb, and Rev. Kevin Jones. Scripture and Prayer will be given to us by Rev. Wade Huntsinger, Rev. Cory Halsey and Rev. Steve LeaShomb. The High Country Christian Choir is schedule to sing as well. Warrensville Baptist and Midway Baptist are scheduled to have special music too. On Friday, reports from the NC Baptist Children’s Home, Southeast       Seminary, NC Baptist Hospital, Faith Health NC,NC Baptist Foundation, Baptist Men Region 7, NC Baptist Aging Ministry,  Baptist Retirement Homes of NC, Cooperative Program Baptist State Convention of NC,  Caswell Conference Center and Disciple Making will be given. On Saturday we will hear reports from Director of Missions, Ashe Really Care, Hispanic Missions, Baptist Men, Committee on New Churches, Faith Health NC, Child Evangelism, NC Baptist Women, Disciple Making, Church Music,  Historian, Baptist Campground, Vacation Bible School, Hope for Israel, Evangelism, Guidestone ABA, Moderators Report, Presentation, Gideons, Ashe Pregnancy Center and others. I look forward to the meals as well as seeing friends from the churches and folks from the Baptist State Convention of NC. Our host churches work hard to make it as comfortable as possible and we sure do appreciate it. It is a time of revival for all of us to learn and to feel God’s Spirit as He speaks to us about the work of the Kingdom!  The Theme is Taking Jesus to the Community. The scripture reference for the theme is First Corinthians 9:19-23.v.19 For though I be free from all men, yet have I made     myself servant unto all, that I might gain the more. V.20 And unto the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain the Jews; to them that are under the law, as under the law, that I might gain them that are under the law; v.21 To them that are without law, as without law, (being not without law to God, but under the law to Christ,) that I might gain them that are without law. V.22 To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some. V.23 And this I do for the gospel's sake, that I might be partaker thereof with you. For me this passage commands that I “Go” into my community and share the gospel of Jesus Christ in any way that I can. I feel that we are not going as much as we should. One of the       successes of Pastors is to visit in the community as well. Together we can make a difference if we will visit. It is an old  method but it still works. I see this in healthy   churches. I hope you will attend the 131st Annual Meeting of the Ashe  Baptist Association. It is open to the public as well as Messengers and Pastors.


   Your Servant , David
