  Believers Outreach Ministries will hold a revival March 6-8 at 7 p.m. nightly. Host pastor is Cathy Horn Douglas, with assistant pastor Margaret Evans. Apostle Juanetta Tave is the speaker. She is a native of Ft. Worth, mother of five children, has six grandchildren, and is the dedicated guardian of her three nieces and one nephew. As the people of God attended and witnessed the power of God, by word of mouth news began to go out throughout the communities, it was stated in a local newspaper that a Bare Foot Prophetess was traveling through the land. People came from far and near to hear, see what mighty workds were being manifested through this vessel that God was using. In between many of her engagements she would find herself obligated to ministry out in the field, such as in homes, speaking with other pastors, as well as talking with souls in the local malls and grocery stores. The faithfulness and willingness of this woman of God was highly favored in the eyesight of God, and shortly after serving in her respected call to do the work of an Evangelist, she was ordained and properly licensed. Apostle Tave has traveled in and throughout many cities both far and near. The faithfulness of Pastor Tave has definitely given her favor in the eyesight of God, as time progressed and the divine approval of God she was again licensed as Senior Pastor/Elder under Bishop Kirvin James, Houston. She is a woman of integrity, humility based on the principles and oracles of God. She takes no credit of her own, she is very much aware that without God she can do nothing and the accomplishments that have taken place in her life are all due to the Divine Will of God acting in accordance to the obedience of the call. She has recently become the overseer and founder of Apostles Pastors Church Care Fellowship, and has established churches in Bryan/College Station, Arlington, Wichita Falls, Corsicana, Tyler and Fort Worth.

First Baptist Church announces the beginning of V.I.P.’s, designed to minister to Very Important People (children with special needs). FBC Corsicana believes everyone is created in God’s image and can relate to God, and that salvation is a gift that is not dependent on a certain level of intelligence or ability. If you have a child with special needs, you may bring him/her to Sunday School at 9:45 Sundays in the Fourth Floor Room E405 (purple door). Someone will be there to meet you, find out more information about your child and his/her needs, and match them up with a “buddy” (aide). From there, your child will be placed in an age-appropriate classroom with their buddy. There is a “purple room” for children who may need less stimulation for a time, or a medically-fragile child, or one who requires more individualized attention. During the contemporary worship service at 11 a.m., you may choose to take your child into worship service with you, or children with special needs may remain in the VIP Room on the Fourth Floor after Sunday School with adult special needs people. When Kidzpraise (Children’s Church) begins, the VIP students will transition down the hall to join that service with their “buddy” (aide). After the contemporary service ends, you may pick up your child from the Kidzpraise Room (Fourth floor Room E411). Kids (and adults) with special needs and their families are loved and welcome at FBC Corsicana!
