AIPM Update: November 2018

Monday, November 12th, 2018

Great news! We have been invited to serve at Marsden Road Baptist Tabernacle (MRBT) in South Shields, UK. South Shields is near Newcastle-upon-Tyne and is about 320 miles north of London. Jerry Cox (wife Carolyn) has been invited to serve as their first American Interim Pastor. Jerry and Carolyn served at Bootle Evangelical Church in Cumbria the first half of 2017 and will get to South Shields in early April 2019.

MRBT began in 1840 with 2 brothers preaching in the market. And, MRBT remains a strong Gospel beacon to this day. Their mission statement includes, “Show the love of Christ” and the many outreach activities prove their commitment to this and their willingness to serve. Their commitment to reaching families is evidenced by twice-weekly Parents/Toddlers meetings as well as weekly Brownies, Girl Guides and Boys Brigade. And, each Wednesday there is a “Friendly Circle” for ladies over 60 that has 30 in attendance. There is a mid-week Bible study and a Saturday prayer meeting.
