It was a great blessing the see our Royal Ambassadors and leaders representing 3 churches from the Catawba River Baptist Association minister this past weekend. Each church baked cookies and then distributed them to various law enforcement agencies in our community to express gratitude for the work being done. Thank you children and leaders for sharing the light of Jesus in our communities.

One of the greatest needs in our churches is an army of people who will pray for their church, their pastors and leaders and their community and partner churches. To help our churches begin thinking about beginnig a prayer ministry we are bringing in Mark Mirza of Common Thread Ministries in Atlanta. Mark is a true prayer warrior who will help pastors, staff and concerned church members to begin a prayer ministry to combat darkness in our community. Mark’s prayer conference is just one of the breakout sessions we will be offering at this years EQUIP Conference on March 17th at High Peak Baptist. Not only will there be an awesome meal provided ($7 per person) but classes to help equip believers for the work of ministry. Call our office today to RSVP.
