United in Christ! That’s who we are! Galatians 3:28.
We are so grateful to God for the Hispanic Ministry of First Baptist Paducah, and especially for the leadership of Pastor Julio Acosta. Sometimes our church calendar gets so busy – in our little corner of the world – that we miss out on some of the great work that the Lord is doing in the lives of others right here within our own church family. And our Hispanic Church is one of those all-too-often hidden gems.
Did you know that our Hispanic Church is meeting regularly, and reaching the Hispanic community, well beyond the campus of 2890 Broadway? I want you to know about this – so that you can celebrate this – with the hope that you’ll take a late-summer frolic-and-detour (that’s what we called it in law school) and see for yourselves.
Every Tuesday at 6:00 p.m., the FBC Hispanic Church meets in Melber, Kentucky, for a Bible study, fellowship, and outreach. You can stop by the Family Life Center at Melber Baptist Church (address: 2672 KY 1820, Melber 42069) and be part of the action – so plan to get your Spanish on!
Every Thursday is just as exciting, but the start time is 7:00 p.m., and the location is Mayfield, Kentucky – at the Graves County Baptist Association (address: 1400 KY 303, Mayfield 42066). Go check it out!
And, yes, the rumors have been substantiated. Not just our church family is expanding, but so is the Acosta Family! Don’t forget to pray for Pastor Julio, Sharon, and Daniel … as they prepare for this tiny little bundle of joy.
A Dios sea la Gloria! To God be the glory!
