MARBC Talents for Christ 2008:

The 2008 MARBC Talents for Christ and Talents Plus competition was held on Saturday, April 19, 2008. The event was hosted at South Baptist Church in Flint, Michigan. Students participated in several scholarship and open categories. Following the competition, an awards ceremony was held in the church worship center and featured presentations from several participants. Awards were given to 19 participants in a variety of categories. God blessed the event as several young people from the MARBC ministered. We extend our special thanks to MARBC TFC co-ordinator Ken Pyne for his wonderful ministry in leading this important ministry. Pray for those who will now participate in the National Talents for Christ in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, on June 25-26.

April’s Word: “Wash”

An old Hebrew proverb declares that “Cleanliness is next to Godliness.” In his classic book, “Great Expectations,” Charles Dickens describes the meticulous work of Mrs. Joe as she prepared for her family’s Christmas gathering.
