Transformed . . . Nurtured . . . Sent

These three words do a great job of describing the people of Southland Baptist Church. We're in the process of being TRANSFORMED by God's grace, NURTURED in Christ's love, and SENT in the Spirit's power to join God in his redeeming work around the world. Whether that means we are sent to the other side of the globe or across the street, we believe that we are a people on a mission. This mission originates in the very heart of God. For God sent his own Son, Jesus Christ, into the world that we might truly live. He has sent his Spirit into the world to empower others to share the good news of Jesus with all they meet.

We're glad that you've stopped by our website. We hope you'll take a look around and get a better feel for who we are and what God is doing in and through us. But most of all, we pray that you'll feel sent our way . . . For we invite you to join us on the journey.

Thought for Thursday - October 30

This Halloween you probably see all the normal haunts: monsters and vampires and demented serial killers. Alongside those, you’ll also likely see a handful (I hope it’s only a handful!) of people dressed up as the Ebola virus – our most contemporary of frights.

I've spent a little bit of time wondering why there has been a collective freak out to the presence of Ebola in the United States. At this point, exactly one person has died from Ebola here in the U.S. Contrast that with the fact that nearly 30,000 people will likely die from the flu this year, and yet I’d almost put money on the fact that no one will come to Trunk or Treat dressed as the common flu.

Register to be a Bone Marrow Donor - November 9

Help Matt Roe and others fighting blood diseases - YOU just might be the ONE person who can save a life.

45 year old Matt Roe is an active and involved father, a wonderful husband who is active in his church in Austin, a UT graduate and has deep  San Angelo roots. Matt’s wife grew up in San Angelo and his in-laws (Rigby-Hiebert family) are active in the community.  Matt developed lifelong friendships while his father was pastor at St. Luke United Methodist church in the early ‘80s.

San Jacinto Mentoring Opportunity

Not all students have a caring adult person in their life. Would you consider making a difference in the life of a San Jacinto student?

By becoming a lunch buddy with a student, you would be providing him/her with support, advice, friendship, and providing a role model over time.  You would meet with the same student during his/her 30 minute lunch break every other week. The greatest need will be in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade.

The program begins November 3rd.  Please consider investing in the life of a student. If you have any questions, please contact Shirley Cash or Matt Walton.

Thought for Thursday - October 2

The other day I had a friend who was frustrated with the way Christians were treating one another during the course of an argument. Each was convinced he was right and the other was wrong. Each had a list of verses memorized to support his position. Each used their own cherry picked verses to blast the other.

As my friend listened to these two brothers in Christ verbally treat each other as enemies his frustration grew and grew, not just with them, but with the Bible itself. While neither man was acting very Christ-like, each could justifiably claim to have the Bible on his side. Why, my friend wondered, did God give us a book that could be interpreted in so many different ways?
