Welcome to Miracle Missionary Baptist Church

Hello & Welcome

A MESSAGE FROM THE PASTOR     

 

As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith. Galatians 6:10. 

     Beloved, omicron is the newest variant to the coronavirus. In LA County alone cases have spike at an all-time high. The CDC recommends that people who have contracted the virus to quarantine between 5-10 days before resuming their normal activity, limiting gathering and wearing mask (n95 or k95). 

     Church, let us continue to practice safety measures and follow the guideline prescribed. Miracle, your church family is here to serve as a resource. I’m aware that after an exposure of the virus, or during quarantine, it might make it difficult for you to get your basic necessities; food, water, paper goods, meds etc. Should you need some supplies to help you get through, contact the church office and someone will provide assistance with dropping off some supplies to your place of residence.

     Also, I’m also asking for volunteers to assist with this ministry endeavor. If you are willing to assist us with serving as a delivery driver, shopper or lend a helping hand, contact the church office and leave your name and contact info. Thank you for your support and prayers.

     Tomorrow is Dr. Martin Luther King Day. A federal holiday held on the third Monday of January each year.  This day celebrates the life and legacy of a powerful influential civil rights leader.  Dr. King gave his life for the pursuit of freedom.  

     Church, let us pause, pray and praise God for raising up and using Dr. King for the advancement of all people.  Appreciate the sacrifices he made for the equality for not just people of color, but for all people. May his life, legacy and leadership forever be remembered.
