“But He knows the way that I take; when He has tried me, I shall come out as gold.” Job 23:10 (ESV) Make no doubt about it, these are trying times. These are times that test our faith, work our patience, and prove our love. Beloved, if you have faith, patience, and love for God even in trying times, it solidifies what you believe and in whom you believe. Job knows something about trying times and he testifies about it in Job 23:10. The revelation of the text is that God is the one who makes, measures, and manufactures the test. Since God controls the test, He is the only one who can grade you as you take it! And according to the verse, after you’ve been tried, you’ll come out as pure gold! God wants you to pass the test with flying colors. So, be encouraged because even in trying times, God is up to something!!
Here are some of the great things happening at the Springfield Baptist Church.
IN-PERSON SUNDAY SCHOOL & WORSHIP
Just a few quick reminders as we continue to come together for in-person Sunday School and worship:
- Pack your patience. We are growing in this process together.
- Pre-screenings take place in the Fellowship Hall, Sanctuary and in the DSMPC prior to Sunday school at 8:30am and worship service at 10am.
- The capacity numbers will be reduced campus-wide this coming Sunday to ensure you are properly socially distanced.
- If you are sick, have a high fever or are suffering from flu-like symptoms, please enjoy worship from the comfort of your own home.
Roadside cleanup is cancelled for this coming Saturday. Please stay tuned for more information about our next scheduled roadside cleanup.
