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!

The Period to Receive Those Whom The Lord Will Send





All are encouraged to meet this Tuesday for a time of prayer of our church body.   Pastor Sholar has asked that we gather in the Chapel Sanctuary at 12noon and assemble for prayer for 30 minutes, uniting in prayer before the LORD.  We are blessed to kno--and are assured--God hears and answers prayer—we want to be faithful to continue in prayer.   Please plan to attend.

Luke 11:5-10   

 “…And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.

For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.” 



Graduation time is approaching, and we want to be sure to acknowledge this accomplishment for our high school and college graduates of 2023.  Students/Parents, please submit names of graduates to our church office or to Chairpersons of our scholarship committee—Dea. & Sis. Corey (Laurie) Edmond.  Thank you.



All members of the Mass Choir are asked to please be present for rehearsal this week, Wednesday, May 17, at 7pm in the Chapel.  Your support of our Music Ministry is appreciated as we continue lifting praise in song unto our LORD.





HAITI – MISSIONS – School Supplies Needed

Saints of Main Street Baptist Church – We have an opportunity to participate in a school supplies- backpacks giveaway to the young people at the Destin’s local church, Calvary Baptist Church in Grand Goave, Haiti.   Last year, one of our supporting churches provided 80 backpacks with much needed school supplies, and the students and parents of our church were extremely grateful.  This year, we have been invited along with other churches who support More Than Bread in order to make the load lighter for all.  We have created an Amazon wishlist with the needed items to make the process easier for those who donate.  Please give your donation to Kristen Gordon by May 21, 2023.

As you may know, most schooling in Haiti is not free.  Therefore, the beginning of the school year can be a stressful season for parents, especially for those with multiple children.  Providing the school supplies relieves a bit of the anxiety surrounding Back to School season, and therefore is an act of love done in the name of Christ. The Destins hope to pass out these backpacks/school supplies before their summer furlough.  Thus, the deadline to purchase is May 25th. 

WISH LIST For 80 students:

Water bottles                           Composition notebooks

Backpacks                               Pencils and pencil sharpeners

Ballpoint pens

Sunday Morning Service 5/14/23

Title:  “The God of Peace and Order in the Church”     [Part 1]

Text:  1 Corinthians 14:26-33


Two aspects of God’s holiness the church must recognize in every worship service:

I. God is a God of order [vv. 26-32]












II. God is a God of peace [v. 33]















Responsive Reading for the Month of May 2023:

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

Question: What does God require in the ninth and tenth commandments?

Answer: Ninth, that we do not lie or deceive, but speak the truth in love. Tenth, that we are content, not envying anyone or resenting what God has given them or us.


Question: Can anyone keep the law of God perfectly?

Answer: Since the fall, no mere human has been able to keep the law of God perfectly, but consistently breaks it in thought, word, and deed.


Question: Did God create us unable to keep His law?

Answer: No, but because of the disobedience of our first parents, Adam and Eve, all of creation is fallen; we are all born in sin and guilt, corrupt in our nature and unable to keep God’s law.


“Now you are the body of Christ and each one of

you is a part of it.”   I Corinthians 12:27



Happy Mother’s Day!





As our Broadcast Ministry continues to upgrade its ministry of outreach via social media, the distribution of cds is no longer at the levels it has been in the past.  At this time, the Broadcast Ministry has made available FREE cds that you are welcome to pick up and/or share with others.  A container of cds shall be located in the vestibule. 


PARKING ISSUES – Next door from Chapel/Braxton Bldg.

Members who park in Barbara Ricki's Lot:

Please remember the following-- 

1)  Only park behind the island.

2)  Do not park near the building. 

3)  Do not block either driveway. 






If you’re interested in serving as a Church Usher (Women or Youth), now is a wonderful time to volunteer to do so.  As Pastor Sholar’s sermons have recently pointed to--as well as our Church Theme—as a part of the body of Christ, each person has an area they may serve. 

Women/Youth Ushers serve on the 1st and 3rd Sundays.  Please prayerfully consider being a part of this ministry.  To join or for any questions you may have, please see Sis. Beverly Hagans or Sis. Deborah Harris.    

“…I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of the wicked.”    Ps. 34:10
