The Old Mystic Baptist Church...The Very First (Earliest) Baptist Church in Connecticut!
Statistics show that, if people are inclined to visit a church, summer time is the most likely season of the year. For many New England churches, however, summer time is our slowest time of year. Many people are away on vacation ...... Fortunately Sunday School (or “Junior Church”) is offered year round at OMBC.
I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! It's hard to believe that this Sunday is the first Sunday of Advent. If all goes well, we ought to have a festive service this Sunday as we learn about the Christian meaning of our Christmas symbols/decorations, while enjoying singing numerous carols. This is a great service to invite friends and family.
Hope you enjoy the newsletter!
See you Sunday!
“Giving Thanks in The Midst of Betrayal” Based upon I Corinthians (chapter 11) “On the night in which He was betrayed…our Lord took bread…and when He had given thanks…”
What a wonderful Lord we serve! Here He is—knowing that He would be betrayed by Judas—knowing He would be persecuted, tortured, and killed—and He takes time to thank God the Father. Wow! What love; what focus; what courage!.....Click here for full article

Whatever you send me, Lord, I will accept.
My response may be clumsy, or even inept.
But I know you want only the best for me, too.
So with your help, I'll do what you want me to do.
Turn your eyes upon Jesus, look full in His wonderful face; and the things of earth will grow strangely dim, in the light of His glory and grace.
