Lord Bring us from Death to Life.

Mon, 30 Mar 2009 01:10:00 +0000

This week Reverend Brown reminds us that what we see isn't always what it seems. We may see an object bereft of life but to God it's just a vessel to be filled with life. Using the text of Ezekial 37:1-14 Reverend Brown reminds us of how Ezekial was shown a bed of dry bones. By preaching to the bones they came back to life. How many of us have passed by only seeing dry bones and not something or someone worthy of a little of Gods attention.

You Got To Stay In It To Win It.

Fri, 07 Dec 2007 14:30:00 +0000


This week Reverend Brown reads from Genesis 48:11-19 and talks to us about having to stick with the program if we are going to get results.

This Family Could Have Been Saved.

Wed, 07 Nov 2007 22:57:00 +0000


This week Reverend Brown reads from Genesis 25:5-11,19-21,23-24,28 and asks us what have we done in our families to create strife and discontent. With the realization that we are human and fallible we always need to be conscious of how our treatment of members in our family can turn them against each other. Looking at our relationships we can always find ways to improve how we relate to one another.

Stop The Baby Mama Drama.

Tue, 16 Oct 2007 20:11:00 +0000

Reading from Genesis 21:9-21 Reverend Brown reminds us to always maintain our perspective when dealing with others. How often do we use our children as pawns in relationships with other adults. Isn't it time to accept our responsibilities as Fathers and Mothers to take care of and love our children while leaving our personal wants and desires out of the picture.

Two Kinds of Laughter.

Fri, 05 Oct 2007 13:54:00 +0000

When asked to do the impossible how often have we given as our response a cynical laugh, with the tag line "Who Me?" Reading from Genesis 15:5-6;18:11-14;21:1-8 we hear the story of Sara who on hearing Gods plan for her laughs too. It's only when Gods plan plays out and she sees it is true does she really laugh. So when we are asked of the impossible, do we laugh cynically or heartily at a job well done?

How Much Are You Worth.

Wed, 03 Oct 2007 19:24:00 +0000

With September and everyone back in school everyone is back from vacation and we have Reverend Jesse Brown back in the pulpit. Reading from Genesis 1:26-30 Reverend Brown this week talks to us about self worth. What do we need to feel worthy. Is it a complement, is it a man or is it a new car. If these are what cause us to feel worthy maybe we need to revisit that. The love of a man a women or the smell of a new car maybe be fleeting, but the love of Jesus and God is never ending. We need to accept that all we truely need to feel loved is to accept Christ into our hearts.

This week we were relieved to hear our mission team made it safely to New York with the hurricane bearing down on Jamaica. With Reverend Brown in and the group seeking ways to get out of New York, our own Reverend Joanne Lindstrom provides the sermon today. She talks to us about how it\'s not the big things the continue to pave the way for the Lord in the world but the little things we do everyday. The child helped with homework, the beggar who we give a quarter too, the single mother who we helped get the groceries home. Along with Joanne this week we have our own Anne Geddes providing the musical selections for this week.

Tue, 28 Aug 2007 21:20:00 +0000

In his letter to the exiles Jeremiah outlines gods plan for the people to regain their place in Jerusalem. Reading from Jeremiah 29:1-14 Reverend Brown asks us are we following gods plan or our own plan? If we don't follow gods plan we might be left out and find ourselves in exile.

The Cultural Captivity Of The Church.

Thu, 23 Aug 2007 15:38:00 +0000

This week Reverend Brown explores whether changes in the church are the result of gods influence or the influence of society. Reading from Jeremiah 7:11-15 Reverend Brown asks is your church a victim of change for cultural reasons or is God directing you in a new way. When church's ignore Gods word to fit in society they risk losing their way and becoming negative influences in our world. .

Are We Good Samaritans or Just Samaritans?

Mon, 23 Jul 2007 18:16:00 +0000

Once again another year has gone by and we are again at our annual Mens Day. This year we are pleased to have as our guest speaker Reverend Paul Ford. Using as the bases of his sermon this week Reverend Ford reads from Luke 10:25-37. We all know the story of the Good Samaritan but do we ever stop to think about the robbers who the story tells us very little. Why indeed their actions were dastardly what drove them to rob and beat the man. How often have we passed by others who are sitting by the side of the road neglected and abandoned by society. Only when these unfortunate people are driven to acts of violence do we ever pay then any heed. Reverend Ford reminds us when we pass by our fellow man and fail to help them along, we are as complicit in their crimes as they are..

Become As Little Children?

Tue, 03 Jul 2007 18:51:00 +0000

This week we see that when the lord has a message he sees it gets out. With only minutes to prepare our student intern Mr Wesley Sun was pressed into the pulpit to give this weeks sermon. Thus this week Wesley preaches from Matthew 18:1-3. Where Jesus makes the statement that to enter the kingdom of heaven we all must be like children. He explores several ideas of what it's like to be children and makes the case that we as christians must always be on guard to protect those in our society that need protection as we too are never far from needing protection ourselves.

It's Time To Relocate?

Thu, 28 Jun 2007 20:54:00 +0000

This week Reverend Brown teaches from the text of Isaiah 5:1-3,6-11. Reverend Brown asks us how our daily living reflects the ways of the lord. If we are not truly living in the ways of the lord then we may not only need to change our ways but move from where we are.

Also this week we participated in the funeral service of Carl Price a long time member of First Baptist. He was the husband of our music director Virgina Price, please keep Virgina and her family in your prayers as they go though time time of adjustment.

Does God Hang Up On Us?

Fri, 22 Jun 2007 20:46:00 +0000


We wish to thank all who prayed for our Senior pastor Reverend Jesse Brown when he was taken ill two Sundays ago. This week we welcome him back after many trips to the Doctor and a short stay in the hospital. This week Reverend Brown teaches from the text of Isaiah 1:10-11,14-20. Reverend Brown talks to us how Gods conservation with us is never finished. While we may hang up on people from whom we don't appreciate the message they are delivering, God message is consistent and forever. Reverend Brown reminds us this week that no matter how far we may have strayed from the message God keeps the line open if only we take the time to listen.

This week we also unveiled our new sign. While a long time in coming the wait was well worth it. We now have a new presence in the community that will announce our activities in the neighborhood.

Congratulations Revira.

Wed, 13 Jun 2007 14:32:00 +0000

With June comes the end of school and graduations for some. As is the tradition around this time we have a service celebrating the accomplishments of our youth during the last school year. This year we are proud to have in the graduating class of 2007 Revira Davis. Revira came to the First Baptist Family at a period in her life of much turmoil. In her adoptive family and First Baptist she found a home in which she has managed to grow and develop from the shy girl that stayed back to the confident out going young women that takes the pulpit today. Please join with us in congratulating Revira in her graduation from High School and wishing her well in her continued endeavors as she heads off to university.

Please continue praying with us for the continued improvement of our senior pastor Reverend Jesse Brown. While spending a week resting he hopes to return to his regular duties this week.

The Infrastructure Of Sin.

Wed, 06 Jun 2007 17:36:00 +0000

Reading from Amos 5:10-15,21-24 and focusing on verses 21-24 Reverend Brown reminds us our duty to God extends way beyond the borders of our Churches. It is not right in Gods eyes for us to praise and commit our life to Jesus on Sunday if when we leave Church we allow any manner of indignities befall our neighbors and fellow citizens. We much always stand up against evil even when that stand may come at a personal cost to ourselves.

An additional note this week, is please pray for our Pastor Reverend Brown as this week after finishing this sermon he was taken ill and had to be taken to the University of Chicago Hospitals. While it seems in the end this was a minor incident from which he will recover with some rest it serves as reminder how fragile our grip on this world is. We here wish him a speedy recovery.

This Is the Third in the series of sermons Reverend Dr. Alan V. Ragland gave as part of our Annual Revival. In this final sermon Reverend Ragland implores us to use ourselves and our buildings to create places of sanctuary for our children.

Power of A Prayer With a Promise.

Wed, 23 May 2007 18:37:00 +0000

This week it was our annual Women's Day Celebration. The day we honor the contribution of the women of First Baptist. As is the tradition we had a guest speaker Rev. Alice Greene as our preacher this Sunday. Using as her text 1 Samual 9-19 Rev. Alice demonstrates how the power of prayer is increased with our commitment to the lord by keeping our promises. While Hanna desperately wanted a child, after promising to commit that child to god if she was allowed to conceive that child. She didn't renege on that promise to the lord. Rev. Alice shows how by keeping our promises the power of prayer is increased.

Do What You Are Told To Do.

Thu, 03 May 2007 18:15:00 +0000

This week being the 5th Sunday in the month it's customary at First Baptist to have the youth of the church perform the offices of the service. Often too at this time Reverend Brown takes a break to have one of the other members of the pastoral staff take a turn in the pulpit. Thus this week we not only have the youth of the church providing the musical selections but our own Joanne Lindstrom take the preaching duties. In her sermon this week she teaches from the text of Acts 9:1-6. While we all pride ourselves in our individuality we are often being buffeted by demands of others. We are told what to do by our schools, family members, and employers we often don't listen to what God is telling us to do. Reverend Lindstorm reminds us that while listening to all the other demands in our life we need to listen to the demands of God and when told, we need to do what we are told to do.

God Is Worthy of Praise.

Fri, 20 Apr 2007 14:12:00 +0000

This week Reverend Brown teaches from the text of Revelation 4:1-11,. So often we get caught up in the trappings of how we praise we often forget it's that we praise that is important. God doesn't care if we sing in tune or on the beat if we are truly singing his praises. Reverend Brown this week reminds us to praise God every day and every way no matter how we are dressed or what troubles we have encountered that day.

Which Jesus do you see.

Tue, 10 Apr 2007 20:19:00 +0000

For those able to pull themselves out of bed this Easter morning we were treated to not only a wonderful Sun Rise service but a tremendous sermon from our young intern Mr. Wesley Sun. With this being resurrection Sunday and the focus being on Jesus Christ Mr. Sun asks us who and what is this person we call Jesus. With so many representations of Jesus in the literature and media who do we see as Jesus.

The Joy of Pardon.

Thu, 22 Mar 2007 17:48:00 +0000

This week as part of our celebration of international Women's Month we had as our guest speaker Reverend Jeanette B. Jordan of the Pullman Presbyterian Church. Reverend Jordan talks to us about how many times forgiveness isn't something we do for others but often we need to do for ourselves. Even when we are wronged often our own need to get revenge or harboring a grudge often hurts us as much as the original wrong. Reverend Jordan draws from her own life experience to illustrate how when we can actually forgive someone that has wronged us we ourselves can be freed and move on.

Why Do You Just Go Along To Get Along.

Tue, 06 Mar 2007 15:37:00 +0000

This week Reverend Brown teaches from the text of John 2:7-11,15-17,. This weeks theme comes from the idea of, how often do we just go along with the world to keep the peace, rather then challenging the injustices and corruption that surround us. Very often as christians we adopt the don't ask don't tell policy. When we see things as long as they don't directly effect us we cast a blind eye even though these issues are against the basic teachings of Christ. While we may in the short term keep the piece in our world over time these issues will cause us pain in our society or personal lives. Thus, Rev Brown this week asks us to evaluate ourselves and ask are we just going along with the status quo to get along? If we are we should look at what we are allowing to pass by and challenge it if it isn't in the way of Jesus Christ.

Bread for the Journey.

Fri, 02 Mar 2007 17:01:00 +0000

With this Sunday being the last Sunday in February, which is also Black History Month we had a special service presented by our Generation 2000 members. Besides their special presentation and musical selections that included a solo by Ms. Tulani Brackett, our services were presided over by Reverend Dr. David Daniels.

Reverend Daniels' wanted to talk to us about what we as a organization is providing to feed the hunger of our members in a way to encourage growth in the church. Previous generations have had slavery and civil rights as causes to focus on to maintain direction in our institutions and churches. In the 21st century what are we giving to our members particularly our young member to cause them to come to the church for meaning. Dr. Daniels endeavors to answer that question with his sermon this week.
