Dear First Baptist Family,
First Baptist Flower Mound has always been a calling and sending church, and now our church is sending Donna Kay and me to answer God’s call to serve as missionaries to southeast Texas, planting churches and making disciples.
We have accepted the call for David to serve as director of missions of Trinity River Baptist Association. Our last Sunday here at First Baptist Flower Mound will be January 12.
This call from God comes to us as the culmination of the two spiritual journeys God has led our church through this year.
We began the year with a Journey of Faith, declaring together that we will fight the good fight, we will finish the race, and we will keep the faith.
This fall we moved into a Journey of Commitment, vowing that we will deny ourselves, we will take up our cross, and we will follow Jesus.
Donna Kay and I took that challenge seriously. Accepting this call requires faith and commitment. We must trust Jesus completely, no matter what. And we must die to ourselves so we can follow Jesus.
We are excited about the adventure that lies before us, but we grieve over leaving all of you, our family here at First Baptist Flower Mound.
We are confident that what is God’s will for us and for Trinity River Baptist Association is also God’s will for this church. If you will seek and follow His guidance, the greatest days of this church lie ahead.
Please pray for us as we will be praying for you. May God bless each of you, and may God bless First Baptist Church of Flower Mound.
With much love,
David and Donna Kay Williams
