Annual Meeting 2022

Riverland Hills Baptist Church

 

The Apostle Paul challenged Christians in Rome, “Besides this you know the time, that the hour has come for you to wake from sleep. For salvation is nearer to us now than when we first believed” (Romans 13:11). While these words were written almost 2,000 years ago, they are as true today as ever.

Surrounded by external chaos and internal confusion, it seems Southern Baptists have been sleeping for some time. Yet this is not a problem exclusive to other states. Some South Carolina churches are struggling to keep their doors open, and many others are in need of a spiritual renewal after several years of challenging circumstances.

Our prayer is that the Annual Meeting in November will provide a time to focus on renewal, revival, and revitalization. Both Monday and Tuesday evenings will be devoted to renewal and revival. We are praying for God to ignite a fire inside us all. We will certainly have our times of needed business, but we primarily need to do business with God.

Join us in praying for our Annual Meeting. May we prepare our hearts to meet with God. Let’s wake up to the mission of God!

REVITALIZATION:
Every church in South Carolina should be invested in the ministry of Church Revitalization. While many churches need to experience revitalization, many others can provide support and strength, and resources as partners in this most important endeavor.

RENEWAL:
After the challenges of the past few years, virtually every pastor and church needs spiritual renewal. While the world surrounds us with conflict, confusion, and chaos, the church must seek a refilling of the Spirit of God for the next leg of the race.

REFOCUS:
No one is questioning the call of God or the mission we have as South Carolina Baptists. Still, if we’re honest, we are often distracted from the mission by less important things. May we refocus our attention on the things that matter most to God’s kingdom work.

REVIVAL:
While important business, brotherly fellowship, and exciting worship are always benefits of our annual meetings, we are expecting much more this year. May we join together with one voice, praying that the God of the universe would bring a revival to our state and nation.
