 Words of Encouragement

"I am the vine and you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will bear much fruit: for you can do nothing without me. Those who do not remain in me are thrown out like a branch and dry up; such branches are gathered up and thrown into the fire, where they are burned. If you remain in me and my words remain in you, then you will ask for anything you wish, and you shall have it. My Father's glory is shown by you bearing much fruit; and in this way you become my disciples. I love you just as the Father loves me; remain in my love."

St. John 15:5-9 (Good News Translation)


2019 Fund Raiser

Trustee Ministry

Annual Fund Raiser – The possibilities are endless!

Our 2018 fund raiser generated just over $10,000.00.  Once again, we really did an amazing job. Pastor Williams and the Official Boards are very proud of this accomplishment. Without this support, it wouldn’t be possible to keep the church building and grounds as beautiful as they are.

We are pleased to share some very exciting news which we should all shout about . . . With your financial support and prayers, we are in a good position to satisfy the outstanding parking lot project loan by the end of the year, and for this God deserves all the Glory!   

As you all know, we as a body of believers took this project on back in 2014 and saw it become a reality by the end of 2015. Much hard work went into making this dream of former Pastor Arlester Newsome come to pass.  He would always say “how wonderful it would be for all of the ladies to walk onto the grounds and not scuff up the heels of their high heels”. Thank you, Pastor Emeritus Newsome, for having the dream and allowing us to embrace the dream. We love you for that. 

The Pastor and the event sponsors would like to thank all those who continue to bless this branch of Zion with their generous support.  The next major undertakings for us are upgrades to the building air condition system, flooring in the fellowship area, and church transportation.

 We are thrilled to begin another year of giving and we are looking forward with much excitement as we step out on God’s Promise as we prepare for our 2019 fund raising event. Our theme is yet to be determined, but we do know we’ll continue to give back $1.00 per day for each day that God has blessed us with.  Our goal this year is $10,000.00.



Dates to Remember


Cemetery Rally Approaching

Big Bethel Burial Park

Submitted by: Sister Carol Jones

The Cemetery is a special part of our church ministry. Upkeep and maintenance of the grounds and surrounding acres is a significant part of our budget. We would like to thank all members and families who contributed to our 2018 cemetery rally. Our rally will take place on the 4th Sunday, March 24, 2019, during the regular worship service.

We are asking all members and families with relatives buried in the cemetery to contribute to this rally with a donation of your choice. We will continue to properly take care of our cemetery and we pray God’s continued blessings on all of you.




A lady was driving along with her father.
They came upon a storm, and the young lady asked her father, What should I do?"

He said "keep driving"..  Cars began to pull over to the side, the storm was getting worse.  

"What should I do." The young lady asked?
"Keep driving," her father replied.

On up a few feet, she noticed that eighteen wheelers were also pulling over.  She told her dad, "I must pull over, I can barely see ahead.  It is terrible, and everyone is pulling over!"  

Her father told her, "Don't give up, just keep driving!"

Now the storm was terrible, but she never stopped driving, and soon she could see a little more clearly. After a couple of miles she was again on dry land, and the sun came out.

Her father said, "Now you can pull over and get out."

She said "But why now?"  

He said "When you get out, look back at all the people that gave up and are still in the storm,
because you never gave up your storm is  now over.

This is a testimony for anyone who is going through "hard times".

Just because everyone else, even the strongest, gives up.
You don't have to...if you keep going,
soon your storm will be over and the sun will shine upon your face again.

Never give up, because GOD will never give up on them!

"I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me!"
