July 2017 Dear Friends, Here is a little bit of history for you: On July 4, 1863, during the War Between the States, Robert E.

Dear members, friends and neighbors of Central Baptist Church,
I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. I am John Larrabee, the new interim pastor of Central Baptist Church of Rockville.
After 20 years of service at Central Baptist, Dr. Frederick Carroll retired, and the church board graciously asked me to serve in the interim while the pulpit committee is in the process of seeking a permanent pastor for this great ministry.
My wife Joyce and I were married and entered the ministry together in June of 1968. Since then, we have been involved in various aspects of church ministry, education and missionary work. Most of our time has been spent in the United States, but for 20 years we ministered on the Amazon River in Brazil.
Our passion is in preaching and teaching the Word of God, evangelism, discipleship, prayer, biblical counseling and music. While the Lord has us here in Maryland we hope to be an encouragement and blessing to the people of the church and the community at large. Please come see us during the services at church, during office hours (9:00-1:00 Tuesday through Friday), or at another time by appointment.
We want to help you know the Word of God and how to apply it to your life. Please call or come by if we may be of service to you or your family.
In Christ, John Larrabee, interim pastor
I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, Who loved me, and gave Himself for me. Galatians 2:20
