ENGAGE Retreat Update

God blessed our church and youth ministry greatly on the ENGAGE Retreat. Thank you to everyone who made this weekend a joyous occasion for us. Your prayers, support, and financial sacrifice went a long way in providing a great opportunity for our students to spend a weekend in fellowship with other students as they sought to grow closer to God. The ENGAGE Retreat was a partnership of Homeland Park Baptist Church, Varennes Heights Baptist Church, Southside Baptist Church, and Andersonville Baptist Church.

He will be named Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace."  [Isaiah 9:6]

His throne was a manger and his first witnesses were His earthly parents and a few barnyard animals.  How could this baby be the king of Glory? Why would Jesus leave His heavenly Kingdom for our earthly one?  Why would God let His one and only son die on a rugged wooden cross to atone for our sins?  What have we done to merit such a gift? God loves us! [John 3:16] “For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. God Gave Us An Invaluable Gift [Romans 6:23] "For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord." God's Gift is One We Must Receive [Romans 10:9-10] "If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in
