Happy Easter and God Bless You First Baptist Family!
We have a lot to thank God for, and I know that I am truly blessed for being called to be your Pastor. I want to thank you for your support of our mission.
Easter is a time to reflect upon the sacrifice that Jesus made on our behalf. Jesus gave up his life so that we may live with Him. He did it because He loves us. And through His sacrifice, we have new life, we have a new beginning.
First Baptist Church of Rahway has seen many people willing to sacrifice to serve God’s greater glory. The people who came before us sacrificed a great deal to build this wonderful old building and to keep it as a place of worship.
Today we have been blessed to host two new missions that reach out to our community in ways that our fore parents would never have dreamed. Our Telugu mission reaches out to the large the expanding Indian community in our area. And the Latino mission is focused on the fastest growing people group in Rahway. For the first time in many years we have been able to get the people who live right across the street from our church to come and praise God with us.
All of this costs money, of course. And we know that is a sacrifice for you. But this wonderful ministry that God has blessed us with can only continue with your support. Please help us pay this heavy cost with a special Easter gift this week.
God has promised that He will provide and we have faith in that promise. Prayerfully consider how you can help our church with a financial contribution and continue to lift up your prayers of petition and thanksgiving for our mission.
God bless you,
Rev. William Whitehead
