From Our Pastor

Oftentimes, people think they can’t hear from God. They think God doesn’t talk to them. But really, it isn’t that God isn’t speaking; it’s not that God isn’t giving us direction. It's that we’re not always paying attention and/or have developed our spiritual ears to hear and know His voice.

Learning to hear the voice of God is the most important skill you can ever develop. The more you pay attention to Him and the inner promptings and impressions of the Holy Spirit, the more you will know Him and see His goodness and protection in your life.

From Our Coach of Outreach - Haiti

Cory Kroon, Cindy Holland-Toftness and I are preparing for our trip to Haiti on April 11th. As teams have visited these villages 2-3 times per year, we have witnessed an overall improvement in the health of the village through clean water and continuing medical care to those with chronic illnesses.  However, this April, we will be traveling to four villages that we have never visited before.  This has presented us with some new challenges and opportunities so we want to be especially prepared for this week.

CT Food Bank Update

I wanted to give everyone an update about First Baptist outreach in conjunction with the Wallingford Housing Authority and the CT Food Bank Mobile Pantry. We began this effort in November of 2013 in support of the Housing Authority sites for elderly and disabled.

In June of this year, this was expanded to include an additional 4 smaller sites. Since then we have been supporting all 5 sites.

In the last 12 months, I am pleased
