Pastor Paul’s Paragraphs


Dear Members and Friends of Sweetwater Baptist Church:

         Blessings!!  I am certainly looking forward to our Homecoming Celebration on August 13th.  Our special guest this year will be Christian comedian, Dennis Swanberg.  This will be the third time that Brother Dennis has been with us here at Sweetwater.  The service will begin at 10:00 AM in the Pavilion Building.  There will be no 8:30 am worship service or Sunday School.  Also, we will have a church-wide covered dish luncheon together.  Please bring enough food for your family and a little extra for our guests.  You may drop off your covered dish items in the Family Life Center prior to the service.  In addition, if our church votes to proceed with the construction of a new sanctuary/educational facility on July 30, we will be having a groundbreaking ceremony as part of the Homecoming festivities.  I hope that you will make plans to be a part of this exciting and historical day.

Your Nominating Committee has been busy at work to secure workers and leaders for the 2017-2018 church year.  There will be a special called business meeting on Wednesday evening, August 23rd, for the purpose of approving the Nominating Committee report and to elect deacons.  Please, pray for your Nominating Committee and for the individuals who will serve during the upcoming church year.

The Aiken Baptist Association Expanding God’s Kingdom Church Growth Rally will be during the dates of August 14-16 at the Clearwater First Baptist Church.  The services will begin at 7:00 pm nightly.  There will be wonderful music and dynamic speakers throughout the conference.  Let me encourage you to participate in this great opportunity.

The third annual “March for Jesus” will be on Saturday morning, August 26th, beginning at 8:00 AM.  The event begins at Curtis Baptist Church on Broad Street in Augusta.  This is a wonderful opportunity to make an impact for the Kingdom of God by taking a stand for the Lord Jesus Christ.  I hope you will come and march with me as we let the CSRA know that Jesus Christ is Lord!

We will begin sign-up soon for photography dates for a new church pictorial directory.  The dates for family portraits will be September 13 – 17 and September 28 – October 2nd.  Sign-up will be in the Information Center and online.  More details will be given in the weeks to come.  Mrs. Lisa Izlar is our Pictorial Directory Coordinator.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact her at the church office.

Is is a joy and a privilege to serve you!!

With a Pastor’s Love,

Brother Paul
