Today was a special day in the life of Beacon Baptist Church – after 7 1/2 years of meeting at 2000 Speedsville Rd., today was the final service there – next week, we will be meeting in our new building at 143 Glenmorris St!
This morning’s message continued our study in Matthew. As we looked at the balance of chapter 24, we noted some of the significant signs that will precede the Lord’s return, and the end of the world. With these signs in mind, Jesus gave the illustration of the fig tree, the days of Noah, the thief, and the servants to give us instructions as to how to live with the future in mind. We trust the message, Are you Ready? Are You Watching? will challenge your heart.
The final service in the building found us enjoying a good old fashioned hymn sing! We had a wonderful time singing favourites; hearing from those present about how God is working in their lives, and of course, we spent time in God’s Word. The message, O For a Closer Walk with God, was based in Philippians 3, and focused on our daily walk with God. We topped off the evening with a time of fellowship and food downstairs. God has been good to us and we look forward to Him using us in our new location.
