The Woman at the Well Bible Quiz answer
My Dear Antioch,
I thank you for recognizing that through the Holy Spirit, I have tried to put John 9:4 into practice and do “the works of him that sent me, while it is day.” Lisa and I fully enjoyed celebrating my fourth anniversary as pastor. Friday’s Game Night was fun as you played Jeopardy through the different categories in my life. When we got to Kahoot, there were almost some questions that I couldn’t answer! Sunday’s service with my dear friend and fellow yoke man, Rev. Rodney Turner, pastor of Mount Vernon Baptist Church, was a little taste of heaven. I thank the committee who worked so diligently and effectively.
Joining the teens at Top Golf, I felt like we have a generation that grew up overnight. The deep voices and makeup showed me that the teens, who were children on the front side of the pandemic, have matured. We had a great time fellowshipping, and they have said they would like to have similar outings at least once a quarter.
As I looked out at the congregation on Pioneer Sunday and our guest preacher and retired son of Antioch, the Rev. Fred Davis, called the names of some of those who had been instrumental in helping him as he studied at Morehouse and served at Antioch, I had a sense of pride about Antioch’s rich heritage. To have members who have not just stayed but served and continue to serve for over 60 and 70 years is a mighty blessing.
We will miss Minister Otis Byrd, but we know that he is carrying out the assignment God has called him to at the historic Alfred Street Baptist Church in Alexandria, VA, under the leadership of the Rev. Dr. Howard-John Wesley. Thank you, Sis. Wendy Harding and the Antioch Shape Note Singers for keeping our history alive. You represented us well at the “A Moment in Time” program sponsored by R.O.S.A. (Reaching Out to Senior Adults), Inc.
Hearty thanks to our Christian Education Ministry. As I join the Adult class each Sunday and hear about the lessons for our preschool, children, and teen classes, I know that we are continuing to grow biblically knowledgeable disciples. Morning Devotions and Noonday Preaching enlighten, empower, and encourage not just our members but many people who we don’t even know about. Other pastors comment positively and ask how we are able to continue these ministries. Thanks to Sis. Lisa Scott for coordinating the morning devotions and Rev. Darrell Arnold who coordinates the noonday schedule. The Word is going forth much, and I believe God is pleased.
Yours in God's Service,
Rev. K. L. Alexander, Pastor
