I have been the Music Ministry Assistant for First Baptist Church Trussville since March of 2012. I am also a wife and mother of two beautiful children. Before coming to FBCT, my husband and I worked as family teachers in a residential childcare setting rearing mostly elementary-age boys. Our focus was on teaching them social and life skills on a daily basis while also sharing the love of Christ with them. I continue to serve the Lord here at FBCT by helping those who lead our Ministry of Praise Choir, Orchestra, Praise Team, Children's Choir and Conservatory.
Last week we wrapped up the Conservatory Princess Dance Camp in grand fashion with a girls meeting Prince Charming and performing for their parents.
Please join us in thanking our instructors Miss Cassie Wright and Mrs. Kristen Sharp for their excellent and diligent preparation and care for the girls each day. We are already looking forward to next year!
We hope you and your family will plan to join us this fall for Dance, Music, and Art lessons. Registration is currently underway. Space is limited. Classes begin August 20.
This week 18 young girls have been experiencing the Conservatory‘s Princess Dance Camp, and for many it has been a first!
Our desire behind this camp is that girls would be lovingly told of their true identity – that they have a heavenly Father who is the King of all kings and has given them life to be lived with love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness, and self control. (Galatians 5:22-23)
You can partner with us in our mission to impact these girls by praying for them this week. Pray that they experience the love of God through our instructors and one another.
God wanted us to have confidence in the existence and assurance of eternal life. As 1 John 5:13 tells us:
I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life.
It’s clear that the subject of eternal life was never intended to be guesswork for the believer. He wanted us to have confidence in the matter to live the fruitful, abundant lives he intended for us here on earth.
You are invited to join us this Sunday, June 24th as we continue our Life Apps series focusing on the subject of eternal life found in Christ Jesus.
Seriously, we would love for you to be our guest!
