As we heard about in last Sunday’s sermon, God is holy, holy, holy, meaning he is completely set apart from everything else in existence. His holiness guarantees his separation from sin. It affects all of his attributes, setting him apart even from the angels in heaven. Praise God that, when we were still sinners, the Son of God died to make us holy before God and bring us back to him!
Missions Meet & Greet w/Robert Manda
Sunday, August 7th
7pm @ 2nd Baptist Building
This Sunday we will have the unique privilege of hosting Robert Manda, one of our ministry partners in Malawi, Africa. He is a pastor, church planter, and President of the Pastoral Training Institute of Africa. We have had a longstanding partnership with Robert. Just last March, Sam traveled to Malawi to meet up with Robert along with other ministry partners whom we support.
In addition to having Robert preach Sunday, August 7th, we will also be hosting a Missions Meet & Greet with him that evening at the 2nd Baptist church building (1945 E. 2nd St., Defiance) at 7pm. We don’t always get to hear about God’s work in Malawi from a local source, so come hear Robert. Desserts and drinks will be provided.

Helping Ukrainian Refugees
In the wake of the war in Ukraine, millions of people have been displaced. American churches have lamented yet struggled to know how to help believers in Ukraine. Tim and Bert Shiarla feel led by the Lord to get involved. They have been connected with Pastor Ervin in Slovakia. The church he pastors has been helping Ukrainian refugees with practical needs, such as securing apartments, paying for rent, and getting them jobs. They specifically requested prayer, but you can give online by clicking the button below or put a check or cash in the giving box (make sure to include “Ukrainian Refugee Fund” on checks and cash envelopes). Learn more above Pastor Ervin and how to get more involved by reading our blog post.
NEW CITY CATECHISM: Question 31
QUESTION: What do we believe by true faith?
ANSWER*: Everything taught to us in the gospel. The Apostles’ Creed expresses what we believe in these words: We believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended into hell. The third day he rose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from there he will come to judge the living and the dead. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.

WE WOULD LOVE TO PRAY FOR YOU
We would love to pray for you! Some people think that only major crises of life are worth praying for, but the truth is that everyone needs prayer for something. James 4:2 says that we do not have because we do not ask, and when we do we often have false or impure motives. So the first step is to ask. So please come and let us pray for you in person at our Sunday worship gathering. Or, if you would like prayer now, just click the button below and fill out the form and we will pray for you.
