Glory to God in the highest and peace on earth, good will to all mankind! Jesus is LORD and Savior of the world. He lives and because he lives, spiritually we have been made alive because of our belief in him. “For as many as believe in Him, to them he gave the power to become the sons of God, as many as believe on His name” (Jesus Christ).
Once again death has made claim in the Mount Carmel family. I ask that everyone pray for Sister Charlene Woods and her family as she has suffered the loss of her son in North Carolina. We thank and praise God in the midst of their loss because he chose to confess Christ!
Tomorrow our nation will celebrate its veterans; that noble group of men and women, young and old from various races and backgrounds who have secured the freedoms of this great country. In their honor, we will celebrate by entering a float in tomorrow’s Veterans Day Parade. An invitation is being extended to all our veterans to come out and ride the float. We thank God for such men and women of whom we owe so much!
For moments lets go back, back in time to the year 1869 to a small town called Keans Neck, South Carolina. A group of recently freed blacks gather under the clear blue skies amid the moss-laden trees. The worshippers kneel on the velvet like grass and pray to God Almighty. They sing hymns accompanied by chirping birds and they read scriptures on a cathedral created by the hands of God. From this simple beginning evolved the Mt. Carmel Baptist Church of Dale, South Carolina.
