THANK YOU!

To all of our church family, THANK YOU for the love and support for Sis. Martha and the Morgan family. Ladies, as usual, you did a fantastic job with supplying the food for the luncheon the church provided for the family.

I would like to thank Sis. Belinda for the signing “The Old Ship of Zion.” Masterful as usual. Thank you Bro. Rick for always being there for us in the sound booth and thanks to Sis. Dominie for recording the songs for the family that was played at the funeral. God bless you all.

Bro. Stan will live on in our hearts and our memories and one day we, who are born of the spirit, will see him again in heaven. Please continue to pray for the Morgan family that God will give them peace and guide them through this trying time.

See you all Sunday!

Easter Invitation

To All of Our Friends and Neighbor’s:

I would like to extend a personal invitation to every one of you to attend our Easter service this Sunday, April 1st, 2018 @ 10:45 a.m. I believe you will find our people friendly and loving and our sanctuary conducive to worship. Our address is 4565 Alligator Boulevard, Middleburg, Florida. Our Phone number is 904-203-7577.

We strive to always put our Savior first and foremost at every service and remember that we are here to worship Him. The sermon title for Easter is taken from an old hymn, “When I Survey the Wondrous Cross.” My sincere prayer is that you will come and be challenged by God’s Word.

For all of our members, please remember to ask, not only this Sunday but every Sunday, someone to accompany you to church. For our friends and neighbor’s please come because I have some good news for you; God can and will make a difference in lives! If you are searching for your niche in life and nothing seems to make sense you are not alone. If you are plagued with the idea that nothing short of a miracle can help, please, let God help you because He is in the Miracle Business.

“5 And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.  6 He is not here: for he is risen, as he said.”                  (Matthew 28:5-6a KJV)

Please come and join us in worship of the RISEN SAVIOR! See you Sunday.

Men’s Retreat & Fellowship

To all of the dedicated men in South Middleburg Baptist Church.

Our ladies have their coffee and Joy fellowship but now – IT’S OUR TURN!

I mentioned on Sunday, March 25th, 2018 during the morning service that we would be having a men’s retreat and fellowship time but I had to finalize the date. We will be leaving SMBC on Friday, May 4th, 2018 @ 12:00 noon. We will travel to Advent Christian Village, 10680 Dowling Park Drive, Dowling Park, Florida 32060.

I will give you more information in the next couple of weeks but I do want to let you know that this is a very large cottage with accommodations for 15 people. It is located within walking distance of the Suwannee River and is a very quiet and relaxing area ideal for fellowship, prayer and communing with God. Please come with those goals in mind and share with the group any special blessings God has given to you during times of testimony.

We will be doing our own cooking so make sure your health insurance is up to date (if it makes you feel any better there is a Fire & Rescue station just up the road). We will grill steaks Friday night with sides of baked potatoes and salad. Saturday morning we will have breakfast before we check out around 1:00 p.m.

On Friday night, I will have a short (if you believe that I’ll sell you the Suwannee while we’re there!) message about our duties to God, Country and family as men. If any of you would like some time to share anything that God has laid on your heart please let me know.

There will be a sign-up sheet in the foyer this Sunday. Please make every effort to attend and let’s make this a great time of fellowship.

Funeral Service for Sis. Sue Childers

Greetings to all:

I am writing this post today with a heavy heart to announce the passing of Sis. Sue Childers on Thursday, March 9th, 2017. Her funeral will be Sunday, March 12th, 2017 at South Middleburg Baptist Church, 4565 Alligator Boulevard, Middleburg, Florida 32068. Viewing will be from 2:00 p.m. until 3:00 p.m. The funeral service will begin at 3:00 p.m. with Rev. Ed Brown and Rev. Delton Kilpatrick presiding. Funeral arrangements are being handled by Hardage Giddens Holly Hill Funeral Home, 3601 Old Jennings Road, Middleburg, Florida 32068. Internment will be at Gethsemane Memorial Gardens, 822 Hammond Boulevard, Jacksonville, Florida 32221. Our church will provide dinner for the family in the Fellowship Hall of SMBC after internment. Our thoughts and prayers go out to this special family that God will give them the peace that only He can give.

For those of you who are new to SMBC I would like to give you a brief history about how we came into being. Bro. Calvin Childers answered a call from God to plant a church in the South Middleburg area and after prayer and a lot of hard work, SMBC was born. I have often heard it said that behind every successful man there is a good woman. That statement could not be more true than it is in this case. Sis. Sue has stood with her husband through the good and the bad and has always trusted in God. Truly, this woman’s Crown of Glory is well deserved.

So many of us have called her sister and friend over the years that we will surely feel a deep loss. However, we can rejoice in the fact that she has now realized all of the promises our Savior has given to us and the strains of this world no longer encumber her.

***Important Scheduling Note***

We will not have an evening service or choir practice on Sunday, March 12th, 2017. We will resume our normal schedule the following Sunday, March 19th, 2017.
