News of yet another church fire in west Alabama is something that should be a matter of intense prayer for all Christians. Our prayers are with the Beaverton Free Will Baptist Church in Lamar County as the congregation must now deal with the aftermath of the destruction of their facilities. We pray that the causes of all 10 fires this month will be quickly discovered and anyone responsible apprehended.
The State Board of Missions continues its efforts to assist congregations affiliated with the Alabama Baptist State Convention. Also, over the course of several decades, our Convention has forged very positive relationships with predominantly African-American Baptist denominations in Alabama. Therefore we are partnering with several African-American congregations as they seek to rebuild and repair their fire-damaged facilities.
Our prayers are with the Alabama State Association of Free Will Baptists and the National Association of Free Will Baptists as they pray for and seek ways to minister to the Beaverton Free Will Baptist Church.
