Mount Corinth Missionary Baptist Church, of “Heavenly” Hempstead, TX will be celebrating their Pastor, Dr. Clarence Talley, Sr. and First Lady Carolyn, Fourth Anniversary. The joyous occasion will be celebrated on Sunday, September 10th at 2:30 p.m.
The Anniversary theme is “No Matter What…Do The Work” Its inspiration is taken from 2 Timothy 4:1-5. The Scriptural passage encourages the young pastor Timothy to do his job in the ministry although the times are tough and people have no desire to be obedient to the Word of God. Sounds much like the times in which we live. Nevertheless, Timothy was to preach and teach because God was observing him. And one day God will return and judge his work in the ministry. Therefore, the apostle Paul urges Timothy, “No Matter What…Do The Work”: remain faithful, stay the course.
The Anniversary speaker will be Rev. Fred Thomas, III the pastor of the Greater St. Peter’s Missionary Baptist Church of Hempstead. Rev. Thomas was reared in Heavenly Hempstead and has had several pastorates. He is now in his 24th year as s Senior Pastor.
At the 11:00 hour, we will have a dynamic message by the Rev. Fredrick Ragston, the Assistant Pastor at the Greater St. Peter’s Missionary Baptist Church of Hempstead. Rev. Ragston has been a dedicated servant to St. Peter’s family for a number of years. He is a recent retiree of Hempstead ISD.
