Family For All

Mission Statement

We believe that God created the earth and placed man in it as stated in the Bible. We believe the Bible is His word and it is to be read, studied, and accepted as His word with no additional works of men needed to alter it. We believe that man was created in the image of God and placed here to worship God and follow the teachings of His Son, Jesus Christ who died for our sins. As followers of Christ, we believe that His word, the Bible, is the final authority in all things pertaining to religion. Our mission is to teach only the gospel as proclaimed in the scriptures and to follow those teachings. We believe there is "one body, one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all..." Ephesians 4:4-6.

Letter from Elders

8/24/20

Jackson Street Brothers and Sisters,

From the Elders:

 

• It has been wonderful to be able to assemble for the past couple months, even if it has been in a limited way!

• We as elders are determined to not let Covid 19, political issues or even hurricanes stop the work of the Church. We are making plans to be more and do more in the future. As we move through (and eventually out of) this “Covid” environment, we have great opportunites to do God's will. In that same line of thought, it has been announced that we are hiring an additional minister.

Andrew Ashley has been hired as an associate minister and is planning to be with us starting Sunday, September 13th. Andrew and his wife Bictoria have 2 young children. They have a great repuation within our brotherhood and are known by several within our congregation. We feel very fortunate to have them working with us in the future. Andrew will be tasked with organizing many aspects of our Education department and with Involvement of members in various ministries. Also, he will likely be most visible as our wroship minister. Andrew is an experienced and energetic song leader. His passion for worship and our song service is obvious and contagious.

Hiring an additional minister has been a topic of discussion for the last couple years within our eldership. We did not know if the right person for Jackson Street was even out there and we were determined to hire someone only if they were a very good fit for our church. The elders feel Andrew and Victoria will be great assets to Jackson Street and help us do much for the Kingdom of Christ.

We also want to thank deacons- David Burdeaux, Steven Fitzhugh and Shane Ware for doing the “leg work“to connect us with Andrew.

•We are still considered to be in “Phase 2“. We are currently using both of our buildings for coordinated worship, all together, at one time. We will continue to abide by local/state/federal regulations if possible and prudent.

• No Bible classes will be held in the next couple weeks, but we are looking at options to re-start classe in some way.

• If you are ready to assemble again, along side others from our congregation, don't have any symptoms or have health issues that put you at risk, then we would be glad to see you next Sunday morning. The elders want you to know that that you don’t need to feel obligated to be at the building just because “the doors are open“, until you feel totally at ease with being there.

If you have a pre-existing health conditions that put you at risk or are showing symptoms, stay home for your own safety.

• While the elders feel that it is best for our congregation to fellowship and worship together as much as possible. We will continue to post video of Sunday and Wednesday lessons and announcements to the following:
