Call to Worship                           

We have come as the body of Christ to do Holy business for our King. We have come in troubled times, but we have high spirits.  We know the Eternal One is still on the throne.  Saints, lift up holy hands, lift high your voices and praise  the Sovereign One.  Mighty is our God, holy are His judgments and He is altogether lovely.  Praise Him!  Praise Him!  Praise Him!

Sunday Morning Service 11/21/21

Text:  1 Corinthians 5:1-8

Title:  “It’s Not Good for the Church to Tolerate Sin”


Three abuses of God’s grace when the church does not discipline unrepentant sin:

I. The arrogance in assuming that grace gives us a license to sin [vv. 1-2]




II. The refusal to acknowledge that grace places us under the Lordship of Jesus Christ [vv. 3-5]



III. The failure to apprehend that grace has sanctified us through the atoning death of Jesus Christ [vv. 6-8]



Members are asked to please give a holiday love offering of $70 for Thanksgiving and again for Christmas.  As God so blesses and provides, please give willingly (whether more or less) as we continue to support the ministries & labor here in the Lord’s House. May the Lord bless each gift given to His glory.




It is that time again to think about in-house Christmas cards exchange for our in-house members.  The Youth and Christmas cards committee will again collect, assemble and distribute Christmas cards from and to members of our congregation. You are welcome to bypass the cost of postage stamps by bringing your cards to the church and disburse your Christmas cards free.   You may bring your cards –beginning Sunday, Nov. 21 with Sunday, Dec.12, as the last Sunday for drop-off. Collection boxes will be placed in the Main Church vestibule. You may also drop them off at the church office.    Please get your cards in to us early so that all can have their cards before Christmas!  (Safety procedures will be taken in the handling of received cards as well as the distributions.)


Give Thanks

Psalm 118:1, 28-29

Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; For His mercy is everlasting.
28 You are my God, and I give thanks to You; You are my God, I exalt You.
29 Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; For His mercy is everlasting.






Responsive Reading for the Month of November:

Catechism – a set form of questions and answers to teach the tenets of the Christian Faith:

Question: Since no one can keep the Law, what is its purpose?

Answer: That we may know the holy nature and will of God, and the sinful nature and disobedience of our hearts; and thus our need of a Savior.


Question: What is sin?

Answer: Sin is rejecting or ignoring God in the world He created, rebelling against Him by living without reference to Him, not being or doing what He requires in His law – resulting in our death and the disintegration of all creation.


Question: What is idolatry?

Answer: Idolatry is trusting in created things rather than the Creator for our hope and happiness, significance and security.





“Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life:  and I will dwell in the house of the Lord

for ever.”    Psalm 23:6

Main Street Baptist Church Family,

I received my test results and I am happy to report, all tests were negative and there is no evidence of Cancer.  I serve an awesome God and I am so blessed to be a part of a loving praying church family.  Thank you for your calls, cards, words of encouragement and especially for your prayers.  

In His Love, 

Theresa Parks

To My Main Street Church Family,

Thank you so much for the Anne Coleman Scholarship.  Your financial support and prayers during these years have meant more than you know.  As I head into my last semester of college and look towards graduation, I ask that you continue to keep me in your prayers.  I know how blessed I am to have a loving church family.  I have had a wonderful HBCU experience at the Tennessee State University and your support made it happen.

                                                In Excellence,

                                                Shaun Anderson, Class of 2022


Main Street,

You are a beautiful reflection of our Savior’s love.  Words cannot express our sincerest gratitude for your support, and your generosity during our loss.  Your gentle sympathy and kindness will always be remembered.  Thank you for sharing, caring & loving us.  Thank you for keeping us in your thoughts and prayers.  May God bless you with peace & joy.                           

                                                                                                    Lots of love,
