Celebrate 170 Years with 170 Good Deeds!
As a way to both celebrate Madison Avenue Baptist Church’s 170th year and also to live more deeply into our inheritance as a kind and loving fellowship, members of our congregation have been invited to do one intentional act of kindness each day for the next 170 days: to say a kind word to somebody who is down, to offer help to someone who is in need, to come to the aid of someone who could use it. . . . And, as it turns out, 170 days from now will place us in Thanksgiving week. Therefore at the end of it all, we can circle back and see how the Holy Spirit has guided us to show the spirit of our congregation to the wider world and to give thanks to God for the legacy of this remarkable family.
