In view of the current weather conditions and the vast unknown of what we will be facing later with wind, rain and road conditions we will cancel tonight’s (09/04/19) mid-week service. We will resume our normal hours on Sunday, September 8th, 2019.
I realize everyone may not agree that the weather is severe enough to cancel church but if we are to err let us err on the side of caution. So, stay home and enjoy this time with family and/or friends and I will see your bright, shining faces Sunday morning! Stay safe and don’t venture out unless you absolutely have to.
I hope that you all are surviving “Hurricane Fatigue” while we wait for Dorian to make a move one way or another.
It appears that our area will not suffer any significant danger from Dorian and most of the wind and rain we will get will be on Wednesday, September 4th, 2019. After careful consideration of the latest information from the National Hurricane Center, I have decided to go ahead with our scheduled class tonight at 7 p.m. I will wait until later to make a determination about Wednesday night after some time has passed and hopefully given us a clearer picture of what conditions will be like tomorrow.
Tonight will be the sixth lesson of our overview of the Bible and we will cover the four books of Ezekiel, Daniel, Hosea and Joel.
If you do not feel comfortable venturing out I completely understand but I do hope to see you all tonight!

For those of you who are not aware, it is with great sadness that I must report to you that Sister Betty Stephens was called home to be with her Savior on Thursday,June 21st, 2018. The sadness is not for her but for the family and myself. She is going to be missed by so many of us and personally, I have not only had to say goodbye to my sister in the Lord I have had to say goodbye to a wonderful friend.
Our deepest condolences to Sis. Carolyn and the family and I am going to ask everyone in our congregation to please pray that the peace of God will settle on every family member.
Sis. Betty’s funeral will be held Thursday, June 28th, 2018 in the chapel of Jax Memory Gardens, 111 Blanding Boulevard, Orange Park, Florida 32073. Viewing will be from 10:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. and the funeral will begin at 11:00 a.m. Interment will be at Jax Memory Gardens.
After the service the family will be coming to the South Middleburg Baptist Church where we will serve them a luncheon and give them time to fellowship and reminisce. We will be contacting many of you and asking once again that you help with food during this time. You always come through and are such an inspiration to grieving families because you are not only serving them nourishment for their bodies, you are serving them the nourishment of love for their hearts. THANK YOU!!!

I want to remind our church family that we will be providing a luncheon for the family of Sis. Sandy after interment. Please keep this family in your prayers. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to call.
It is with a heavy heart (for myself, not for Sandy) that I report to you that Sis. Sandy went home to be with the Lord on Friday, June 15th, 2018.
Sandy was at home with her daughter Kim and son-in-law Jeff when she slipped quietly into heaven. There were many of her family and loved ones present to witness her graduation.
Sybil and I had been there earlier in the afternoon and had the opportunity to pray and give her our love. This was a very precious lady and I for one am going to miss her smile and wit.
Our church family extends our deepest condolences to the family and I am asking each of our church family to please pray for them as they cope with the parting of Sis. Sandy.
Funeral arrangements are pending but I will update this post as soon as I have all of the details. What I do know at this point is that Broadus-Raines of Green Cove Springs will be handling the funeral and the service will be held at the church. As a heads up to our church family, we will be providing a luncheon at the church after the service.
I would like extend an open invitation to all of our friends and church family in and around Middleburg to come and join us for a time of great music and Christian Fellowship at South Middleburg Baptist Church, 4565 Alligator Boulevard, Middleburg, Florida on Sunday, June 10th, @ 10:45 am.
Bro. Ronnie and Sis. Mary Lou are talented singers that have dedicated their unique talents to serving the Lord and bringing the Gospel message through their beautiful music. Please accept our invitation to come and enjoy a time of music, fellowship and Christian love.
I want to take a moment to invite our friends and family’s to our First Annual Summer Kickoff Children’s Carnival on Saturday, June 9th, 2018, from 3 pm until 6 pm.

Everything is free and we look forward to seeing you and your children here to have a day of good, clean, and Godly fun.
It is important that every child be accompanied by at least one adult so please make plans to stay with your child during the time of their visit. We look forward to getting to know you and pray that this event will not only be fun but also a blessing to you and your children.
God Bless you all and I hope to see you on Saturday, June 9th.
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.
