Scripture & Prayer Requests

2 Corinthians 12:9

Amplified Bible (AMP)

9 but He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you [My lovingkindness and My mercy are more than enough—always available—regardless of the situation]; for [My] power is being perfected [and is completed and shows itself most effectively] in [your] weakness.” Therefore, I will all the more gladly boast in my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ [may completely enfold me and] may dwell in me.

Hello family,

I pray all is well with you and your families.  This is an exciting time for the MSBC music ministry as we are gearing up for our live recording on Sunday March 13th @ Shiloh Baptist Church in St. Paul.  To ensure this historic event is its best we are starting our rehearsals starting this month.  Please see below for the rehearsals for November and December.  It is going to be a commitment, but the end result will be a great project that will minister to people for many years.  We really would like show how talent that is in our convention and I am excited and I hope to see everyone there. 

Please announce this at your ministry rehearsals to ensure everyone has the opportunity to be a part of this great event.  We are learning all original material so it is our presence is very important.  If you would have any questions or would like to volunteer on a committee please let me know (marketing, fundraising, wardrobe, etc.). 

November 21st @ 10am - Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church
December 5th @ 10am - Location TBD

I am so looking forward to us being together!

Dear GFMBC Family,
THIS IS A CORRECTION - there was a typo in the date of the Sentencing Commission. Please accept our apologies!
Our nation is starting to wake up to the horrible injustice of mass incarceration. Please save the dates and plan to come to at least one of these exciting opportunities to make change!


Monday Nov 16, from 3:45-5:30pm there will be a panel discussion on Health and Incarceration atHealthy Heartlands Summit, Bloomington Sheraton, 5601 W 78th Street, Bloomington, MN.
Healthy Heartlands is a coalition of public health officials and community leaders from seven states. MN Commissioner of Corrections Tom Roy and MN Commissioner of Health Ed Ehlinger will speak on a panel along with the CDC, National Ass’n of City/County Health Officials (NACCHO), and the Ohio Organizing Collaborative. OOC won a huge victory in reducing collateral sanctions, removing hundreds of employment barriers for formerly incarcerated individuals.

Wed Nov 18, 8:30am Prayer Vigil before the Prison Population Task Force, MN Capitol State Office Building, Room 10.
Minnesota is going down a troubling path, locking up people at an accelerated pace. At the last meeting, several members of this Task Force said they didn’t see a problem with leasing the prison owned by for-profit Corrections Corp. of America. We need to be there to stand vigil against any taxpayer dollars going to a company with such a horrible record.

ALSO Wed Nov 182pm-4pm  MN Sentencing Guidelines Commission, MN Judicial Center, 25 Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., St. Paul, MN 55415, Room 116C.
MN has some of the harshest drug sentencing in the nation. Now, this Commission is actively considering reform. There will be an opportunity for public comment. Whether you wish to speak or not, your presence will make a difference!

Please help spread the word!  Tell your congregation, friends & neighbors!
