Sanctity of Human Life Sunday, January 20th

On January 13, 1984, President Ronald Reagan issued a proclamation designating January 22 as the first National Sanctity of Human Life Day. (January 22, 1973, was the day the U.S. Supreme Court legalized abortion-on-demand in all 50 states.) Churches around the United States use the day to celebrate God's gift of life, commemorate the many lives lost to abortion, and commit themselves to protecting human life at every stage.

Lottie Moon Christmas Offering for International Missions

Our Church Goal: $14,000

Received to Date: Just over $10,600

Well over 100 years ago, a single missionary named Lottie Moon, while serving in China, began writing letters challenging the American church to send and support more workers to go there. After her death on the field, her challenge was heeded in the formalization of an offering in her name. Even if you’re not a Southern Baptist who has given to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering, her life is a reminder of why we must give to send and support missionaries serving among unreached peoples in unreached places. 

         One Missionary Story: Keeping the Well from Running Dry At the end of a beaten-up road in Tanzania, a small hospital occasionally gets as full as it can get, and then runs on empty. In the past, it’s had moments where sick children slept two or three to a bed. It’s had moments where anesthetic drugs for C-sections and suture materials for surgery have run out. But the situation has never stayed that way for long, reported Larry Pepper, an IMB doctor. Over and over, churches have stepped up to cover the hospital’s needs, all the way from wheelchairs to building a new pediatric wing. “Churches of all sized have helped,” Larry said. “And because they have, we have seen God work to spread the gospel in amazing ways.” Over the past 22 years, churches have supported the Peppers’ work through the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering®, the funding source that keeps them on the field. They have provided equipment, and they have met the hospital’s daily needs. “We’re just two people,” Larry said. “But we find that when other people get a passion to come alongside us, God uses it to further His kingdom.” 

We encourage you to give your best gift to Jesus through the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering.  

  • Church Motto

    First......that all may know Jesus.

    This is the motto of First Baptist Dayton, TN

    taken from 1 Timothy 2:3-5.

     "For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, 4 who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. 5 For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus,"

  • From the Pastor

              Thanks for all the cards and gifts you have given to us for Christmas, once again your generosity and thoughtfulness is very much appreciated. I also simply want to remind each of us that we have a long way to go to reach our goal for the Lottie Moon Offering for International Missions. Our goal is a challenging one but very achievable if we all give according to the way the Lord has always given to us. Please make sure that the greatest gift you give this Christmas season will be for reaching the nations with the Good News of Jesus Christ.  

         I will be teaching a New Members Class starting January 6 during the Sunday School hour in room 106. This class is for all our members who have not already taken the class or anyone that is considering uniting with our church family. It is a good way to get acquainted with our church practices, doctrines, and procedures. We welcome questions and want to answer any that you may have concerning our church.  

          Finally, for the next few months we will be studying The Truth Project, from Focus on the Family during the Sunday evening worship. I hope you will consider being a part of this fascinating teaching concerning a Christian worldview. Every Christian needs to know what they believe and why they believe it. “Be diligent to present yourself to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, handling accurately the word of truth.” (2 Timothy 2:15). I pray that you will join us for this excellent teaching. Study guides are available.
