Determine to know...

Determine to know... 

Be inquisitive. Ask the hard questions. Have faith but live and operate as if it is all up to you. Jesus said in John 13:17, "If you know these things, happy are you if you do them."

Therefore, in regards to service in our Lord's Kingdom, when we know the ways of God and His heart, we should emulate His ways in our service to our fellow man. 

At Central Baptist Church in Lowesville, VA our motto/mission statement is: 

"Serving together as a people of God by welcoming and caring for all in our community."  

It is our solemn prayer that we would make our Lord proud in our service to the community of Lowesville. Please let us know if we can be of service... We are determined to know and to serve...

Pentecost in Lowesville (2017)

The Collect

Almighty God, on this day you opened the way of eternal life to every race and nation by the promised gift of your Holy Spirit: Shed abroad this gift throughout the world by the preaching of the Gospel, that it may reach to the ends of the earth; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

It is Tuesday after Pentecost, in Lowesville, VA. We enjoyed a pleasant service at Central. 
Blessings and peace from Pastor Gary Anderson, the "keeper of the flame" at Central.

St. Thomas Sunday in Lowesville, VA

Today is St. Thomas Sunday. 

At Central Church, in Lowesville, VA, we are endeavoring to appreciate the struggles which we all face. Oftentimes, we even struggle with our faith. If you have ever struggled to believe, you are not alone. 

Thomas is permanently labeled a “doubter” by two millennia of history books, sermons, cartoons and theological treatises in the Christian tradition. A cartoon by Joshua Harris has Thomas crying out, “All I’m saying is we don’t call Peter ‘Denying Peter.’”

We invite you to join one Sunday at Central Church, in Lowesville, VA! 

Blessings & peace, Pastor Gary Anderson

The Time Which We Have Been Given

Blessings & peace from Pastor Gary Anderson at Central in Lowesville, Virginia.
