Sunday, February 26, 2012, will be a special day for Progress Baptist Church as we give our first annual “National Bible Publishing Month” offering. Bearing Precious Seed ministries, located in Milford, Ohio, promotes the month of February each year as a time for Bible-believing churches to receive special offerings dedicated to the publishing of God’s Word.
The Progress Baptist Church family has been receiving a coin offering for almost a year, and all of this money will be designated for the Bible-publishing offering. In addition, 50 or more coin folders, holding $5 in quarters each, were taken by the church family. (What a blessing it was to see our small Spanish congregation in Lancaster, SC, as they excitedly took their coin folders last week during our 3-day revival! When I told them one of the countries targeted for distribution in the coming year for Bearing Precious Seed Ministries was the country of Mexico, their smiles and gratitude were very touching!)
In addition to all of the coin offering given for this cause, we will have a “pass the plate” offering on Sunday morning the 26th. What a blessing to anticipate what God will allow our church family to be a part of in this great ministry! God’s Word is so powerful and effective, and we know that, “Faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word!”
Bro. Jerry Sexton from Bearing Precious Seed will be with us on the morning of the 26th, and we are looking forward to a wonderful day in God’s house.
