As a pastor I love receiving The Alabama Baptist paper in the mail each week. It keeps us updated on church happenings around the area and around the state.
It is also a thrill to see friends who are pastors of churches in the area being successful in the task of the Great Commission.
The Across Alabama’s Associations section also gives pastors and ministers opportunities to learn about outreach efforts that are going on in other churches and even revivals that are in process or coming up.
Another area I really like is the Sunday School lessons section that covers both of the main LifeWay curricula. It is great for us because we have classes that use Explore the Bible and classes that use Bible Studies for Life. I encourage the members of our congregation to be sure and check this out each week to get even more familiar with the Sunday School material.
Still, there is one other area I like about The Alabama Baptist.
Once a month we receive our associational newsletter on the back of the paper. This gives our people information about the association happenings and possibilities for service.
Also, once a month we have the newsletter from our church on the back of the paper as well. That really impresses our people as they read about the happenings in our church.
The Alabama Baptist paper is a balanced paper that gives all folks opportunities to respond and provide input into certain debatable issues as well. I look forward to the next issue.
