It’s a Family Affair

Today was an “out of the box” worship service for Wainwright Baptist Church.  We held our worship in Sam Michaels Park to celebrate our 40th Homecoming Service. This was our first time ever holding our Sunday Worship Service away from the church building.  Today I was actually able to include a selection from our Mass Choir since the selection recorded was not a copyrighted CD.  In the sermon Rev. Jackson referenced the story of Joseph and his brothers, the Prodigal Son, and Jesus in the Temple at twelve years old.
