On Saturday, January 28th, Min. Angela Lee Price conducted the second in a series of "New Year, New You" workshops, entitiled "YOUnique Gifts and Talents" at Mt. Herman Missionary Baptist Church here in Louisville. Approximately 25 women came out for the "Women On Fire for God" Women Ministry's monthly meeting. The Ladies received information on the importance of using their spiritual gifts, discussed the difference between gifts and talents, and completed spiritual gift assessments.
This was a glorious workshop! There was great dialogue. Some women received confirmation on what they're to do this year while others were surprised by what their assessments revealed.
The Holy Spirit was present, and everyone seemed to have been inspired to either use or begin using their gifts! Min. Angela told them that there are too many people sitting on the premises instead of standing on the promises in the body of Christ. As a result we have people being "toss to and fro by the waves and blown here and there by every wind of doctrine (Ephesians 4:16). The more people operating in their gifts, the less burnout there will be, and the stronger the church will be! We serve an AWESOME God, and our primary mission is to accomplish His will on earth, "thy Kingdom come, thy will be done!" This can only be done as each of us is mobilized to serve in our proper places in the body of Christ.Post Your Response to One or More Discussion Topic!

Jesus Saves Scramble Board: TGIF
In the spirit of the Soul Train Scramble Board, we present the Jesus Saves Scramble Board. See if you can unscramble "TGIF." Move the letters around and post as many words as you can find within "TGIF" below. For example, "I" is a word within TGIF. The acronym "TGIF" means Thank God It's Friday" to many people, but, for us it means "Thank God I'm Forgiven." After you have found all the words, see if you can form a sentence relating to spiritual gifts with your some of your new words. One participating person will receive lunch on us, a $10 gift card to TGIFridays Restuarant! The winner will be announced Monday, February February 6th at 12 Noon.Featured Member: Min. Robert Jamison
Minister Robert Jamison was hesitant, at first, about the call that God had put on his life. As he exclaims,I did what a lot of us do when we hear God calling us into the ministry. I ran from my call; however the death of my beloved mother ushered in a need for me to take the call that God had given me, more seriously. Jamison responded to this need by forming the gospel ensemble, Robert Jamison and Victory, in 2009. He is also proud to say that he preached his initial sermon on March 27th, 2011.
He is pleased to announce the release of his first CD titled "Speak Myself Free." Robert Jamison understands the importance of music as a ministry. A music ministry must deliver the word of God in song. The message brings others to Christ as well as encourages one to continue on. He says, "It fills my soul when I sing songs of praise." This comes from a man who knows the truth about God’s saving grace. As this was the same God, that saved him from the stronghold of alcoholism.Celebrating Black History
