The Great Year of 2006 at ARBC

January 21, 2007: Pastor’s Report

As I reviewed some of the things we attempted and completed in 2006, I had to pause in amazement. We had a full year! I am thankful for the improvements we were able to make to our facility. Our Building and Grounds Committee gave excellent leadership as we were able to clean up, clean out, rearrange, plant,  paint, carpet, shampoo, wax, fix, and furnish.

We witnessed some outstanding ministry performance! Our Missions Committee led the way as we set new records in giving during Global Missions Month. Children’s leaders gave us another excellent VBS, and initiated a new Wednesday night program for our children. Our students did mission work at Murrow Children’s Home. Our Music leaders provided us with two very good musical presentations. Our Fellowship Committee made sure we had plenty to eat! Our Deacons provided leadership as we launched a new geographical region for the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship. We were able to begin two new teaching units in Sunday School. Everyone welcomed and greeted our guests.  We launched our new web site, and have enjoyed New members have come into the church. Our Sunday School attendance grew. Our worship attendance grew. Our giving increased.

Every one in the ARBC family should feel a sense of accomplishment. God has been good to us this past year. He’s taken our availability and energy and done marvelous things.  I’m excited about 2007.  I hope you are too!


Quick facts: The following figures show in increase from 2005.

Sunday School increased 20%

Worship attendance increased 18%

Giving increased 36%

Thanks for the great year; let’s make 2007 even better!
