As we continue to seek God’s will regarding how we are involved in sharing the gospel around the world, one of the options being considered is for Cook Baptist Church to adopt a UUPG. UUPG is an acronym for Unengaged, Unreached People Group. According to our own International Mission Board (IMB) , “A people group is unreached when the number of Evangelical Christians is less than 2% of its population. It is further called unengaged when there is no church planting strategy consistent with Evangelical faith and practice under way.”
In adopting a UUPG, Cook Baptist Church would be making a commitment to becoming a strategy center for engaging and reaching those people with the gospel of Jesus Christ. On Sunday evening, August 24, we will have the opportunity of hearing from IMB representative Alan Duncan, who will be sharing what it takes to be engaged in this vital ministry. Please be in prayer that God would clearly guide us in how we should be involved.
Glorytime Choir will kick-off this month. We will resume on Wednesday, August 20 at 4:00 PM. Once again, we will be meeting in the choir room. The target group for this choir is our senior saints. However, I won’t define what age range that entails. If you would love to sing in a choir but are not able be a part of our weekly Ceaseless Praise Choir during Sunday morning worship, come join us on Wednesday afternoons this fall for this special worship time.
On a related note, this fall our church will have the privilege of hosting the North Louisiana Senior Adult PraiseFest. Senior Adult choirs from all over the state will be coming together to worship the Lord. Mark your calendars for Tuesday, October 14. The program will begin at 10:00 AM.
