My Stephen Ministry Story :: By Kathy Campbell Mazi

Many years ago, as I sat in the sanctuary waiting for morning worship to begin, I opened the Sunday bulletin and read this quote:  “In life as in dance, grace glides on blistered feet.”  These words invaded my soul.  I realized that ALL my life, I have been gliding on God’s grace. 

My life is a story of faith and blisters.When my life as I knew it changed dramatically several years ago, when I was shaken to my core and felt like I was sinking in quicksand, I was buoyed by God’s grace. And what did His grace look like?  My Second Baptist Church family was the presence of Christ during those dark days.  Their acts of service and words of comfort and wisdom carried me through this time of loneliness and despair. 

Many gifts of support came my way, but the greatest gift I received was the help of a Stephen Minister.  She walked along beside me with empathy and understanding.  

 As my heart has healed over the past 10 years, I have had numerous opportunities to help others heal from similar pain.  Recently I was commissioned as a Stephen Minister.  God is using my blisters to share His grace with others.  

 Thank you, Second Baptist Church, for supporting the Stephen Ministry.  It is making a difference in many lives!

Hygiene Item Request from Love INC

From our friends at Love INC...

Many of you may not know this, but the hygiene items that Love INC has in its Care Pantry are not something purchased by Love INC. They are, in fact, items donated by caring individuals such as yourself.  Many churches, groups, and individuals buy these items and help keep the shelves stocked! However, with back to school hygiene kits and other people in need we are in urgent need of the following items:

  • Toothpaste
  • Tampons
  • Body Lotion
  • Paper Towels
  • Dish Soap
  • Laundry Soap

Donations can be brought to the Welcome Center and placed in the baskets labeled "Love INC."

Thank you for the Worship Bag books!

Dear 2BC Family, 

On behalf of the children of 2BC I want to say a big thank you to all who purchased books during our worship bag book shower. Thanks to your generosity we were able to purchase 70 new books! Now our children will have lots of good bible stories to read while they worship with us on Sunday mornings. 

Thanks again for your generosity, 
Debbie Lane
