The people walking in darkness
have seen a great light;
on those living in the land of deep darkness
a light has dawned.
You have enlarged the nation
and increased their joy;
they rejoice before you
as people rejoice at the harvest,
as warriors rejoice
when dividing the plunder.
For as in the day of Midian’s defeat,
you have shattered
the yoke that burdens them,
the bar across their shoulders,
the rod of their oppressor.
Every warrior’s boot used in battle
and every garment rolled in blood
will be destined for burning,
will be fuel for the fire.
For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Of the greatness of his government and peace
there will be no end.
He will reign on David’s throne
and over his kingdom,
establishing and upholding it
with justice and righteousness
from that time on and forever.
The zeal of the Lord Almighty
will accomplish this.
INTERCESSORY PRAYER MINISTRY
The Intercessory Prayer Ministry is on behalf of others in the gap, interceding for others. Prayers are offered to an Almighty God through Christ our Lord for the needs of His people who are experiencing suffering and pain. We believe that there is no situation too difficult for God to resolve or problem for Him to solve. We meet at 8:15 a.m. every 1st Sunday of the month and other times when needed.
SUNDAY SCHOOL MINISTRY
CMBC Sunday School offers classes for children and youth (age 3 through 17). The class content is biblically based, fun and exciting for children and youth. The teachers are qualified through the display of their Christian character and preparation by their own study under the training of Pastor Manning. The teachers provide a safe and nurturing environment for the students. The younger students’ classes include story time and coloring activities that support the theme of the lesson. The youth class includes the Bible lesson, and a contemporary story transposes the Bible lesson into a relative scenario that youth are likely to encounter in their everyday lives. The youth are also challenged to apply the teachings of the class during the week.
Several coed adult classes are available, and new students can be assigned so that they are comfortable with the teaching approach. The new members' class is prepared for students who have no previous experience being in a Sunday School class. The framework of the Adult class is comprised of the scripture lesson text, an easy to understand layman’s analysis of the lesson and thought provoking questions relative to the text. Pastor Manning teaches the combined Adult class on the 1st Sunday of every month.
Following the study periods the entire Sunday School reconvenes. On assigned Sundays, the students have the opportunity to share a summary of the main points discussed.
The overall mission of the Sunday School is to teach students how to study the Word of God and enhancing their desire to Worship Him, obey His Word, Share the Word with others and show God’s love toward humanity.
Come study with us! “It will do thee well!”
The Corinthian Missionary Baptist Church's mission leadership respects and follows the suggestions and guidelines of the National Baptist Convention, USA, Inc., Woman Auxiliary, of the Wolverine State Missionary Baptist Convention and our local Saginaw Valley Baptist District and the Woman's Auxiliary.
The CMBC Mission is composed of women and men who meet weekly Wednesdays to represent all the ministries of the Church at 5:00 p.m. CMBC's vision and mission statements are our guiding light as the leadership and members are nurtured through the mission education books, biblical scripture study, group discussion, personal life application, reflection, fellowship, prayer and songs.
The mission reaches inward supporting the membership in all endeavors possible, e.g., ministry programs and activities. The mission reaches outward through daily personal witnessing, evangelizing, helping the needy and less fortunate and seeking justice and liberty for all in the name of our Savior Jesus Christ.
This year, 2017, marks the beginning of the 10th year of the CMBC Informer. This is a quarterly newsletter that strives to keep our Vision Statement and Mission Statement in view in each publication.
The publication is distributed in Saginaw and other Michigan cities, as well as states near and far. We know that in many homes there are persons who do not know Jesus as their Lord and Savior. Here we would "seek the lost and restore the fallen." Our ministry has continued to have an impact on persons. They have told us how they have been helped spiritually and how they were comforted. Here we were "administering to the needs of humanity."
Rev. Dr. Roy L. Manning, Sr., Pastor of Corinthian Missionary Baptist Church, leads with an article in each issue. Photos of activities locally, in the community and on the national level are included.
Articles, tidbits, copyrighted information (by permission), membership highlights, as well as laughable perks are found.
