Helping people connect with God & with each other


Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen



Cradock Baptist Church

Celebrating 96 Years of Ministry in the Cradock Community

October 11, 2015

Join us for the 96th Anniversary Worship Service @ 11:00 AM

followed by a covered dish luncheon






   Notes from David L. Phillips, Pastor:?

Here it is October and boy has this year flown by! October is full of special dates. Sunday the 4th, we will have Stewardship Emphasis. It is our goal to start the new year in the Black and not in the Red. You can show your support for Cradock Baptist by catching up on your tithes and offerings. This will allow us to be better poised to reach out to our community.

October 11th is our church’s anniversary. Let us look forward in anticipation to a great time of celebration! Invite old friends and relatives to join us as we worship the Lord and acknowledge how He has been nothing but Great to us. Bring a covered dish and stay for the fellowship luncheon immediately following the worship service.

On Saturday, October 17, Come Home to Cradock takes place in the square. Our youth are building a float for the parade that starts at 1:00 p.m.. Come out and support their effort to show our church is alive and involved in ministry.

Our Fall Festival, another community outreach effort, is Saturday, October 24, from 4 -6 p.m. The children will have a celebration in a safe environment where Jesus can be proclaimed as the person who loves us and always has our best interest at heart!! Get involved and show your support by contributing candy and dressing in costume.

The focus of my sermons will continue to be on memory verses that every Christian should know. These will help us through the highs and lows of life. Come and learn from His Word. These will carry us through life with love and grace!   In His Service, Dave

“Operation Inside Out”

Since our March church-wide luncheon, “Operation Inside Out” has been involved in initiating a number of outreach efforts including (1) the distribution of Cradock Baptist Church cups to more than 40 children who attended Movie Night, (2) the distribution of more than 1000 door hangers in the Cradock community sharing our Easter services calendar as well as our normal schedule, (3) the Cradock Baptist Church sponsorship of a Cradock Little League team, (4) posting of signs  in the community  announcing our Easter Services and the Children’s Easter Celebration and our youth participating in the 97th annual 4th of July bike parade in Cradock.

In addition to these efforts, we continue to listen to the congregation and request additional ideas and suggestions to support “Operation Inside Out”.   This effort is only successful with the Lord’s guidance and the support of our entire church family.  We are encouraged by comments of some who attended our Easter services who let us know that the door hangers, signs and our social media (website & Facebook) were instrumental in leading them to our church.  What a blessing to have 85+ children at the Children’s Easter Celebration, 50+ at the Easter Sunrise Service and 100+ at the 10:00 AM Easter Worship Service. 

The committee has most recently been involved in meeting with every committee of the church to find ways to work together in support of Operation Inside Out.  These meetings have resulted in a spirit of open communication and valuable recommendations as we seek to share the ministry of Cradock Baptist Church in the Cradock community.

Our prayers for our church are being answered.  Please continue to pray for our church and “Operation Inside Out” as we continue to seek the Lord’s will and guidance for Cradock Baptist Church.
