We will never visit you at home without your permission.

If you choose to share your information with us, it is the promise of our congregation that we will never simply “show up” at your door.

How are things on your spiritual journey?
I once heard a friend of mine respond to a particularly difficult day with the phrase, Life Happens. Our lives are in constant motion, and sometimes, we feel like we do not know what is happening. Where are we going? Are we content with our lives? Are we accomplishing things with our lives that really matter? Is there something that makes all of our comings and goings, ups and downs, and questions and ponderings make sense?
On one occasion, Jesus gave his disciples and other listeners (who perhaps were as tired of life happening as we sometimes get) the following invitation: "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls” (Matthew 11:28-29 in the Bible).
Real rest, real contentment, real peace, and real purpose: is it really possible? Jesus says it is, and he invites each of us on a journey with him to find out. Where are you on your spiritual journey? Where does God fit into your life? If you would like to talk about these, or any other spiritual questions, I hope you will e-mail one of the ministers on our staff, check out a worship service, or join us for a small group Bible study. First Baptist Church Tucker is a safe place to ask real spiritual questions. It would be a privilege to get to know you and hear about your spiritual journey.
