Southside Baptist Church of Carthage hosting “cochon de lait”
Southside Baptist Church of Carthage is hosting a “cochon de lait” for the community on Saturday, February 15, in conjunction with their weekend revival services. A “cochon de lait” is basically a pig roast with the pig cooked in a device known as a “Cajun Microwave” which is like a Dutch oven. The men of Southside will begin cooking the pig early on Saturday morning and everyone is welcome to stop by during the day to enjoy some fellowship while it’s cooking. Beginning at 4:30 p.m., along with congregational worship, internationally known evangelist Rick Scarborough will bring an encouraging message from the Word of God. Dr. Scarborough has served as a pastor and evangelist since 1972, as well as authoring numerous books. His work has been featured in the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and Time magazine, among others. In 1998 he founded Vision America, a non-profit organization which mobilizes pastors and their congregations to be proactive in restoring the Christian foundation upon which America was built. Additionally, Dr. Scarborough has appeared on numerous radio and television programs urging believers to be “salt and light” in the world. There will be a free dinner for those attending the revival service. The menu includes the delicious pork, along with homemade cowboy beans, potato salad, and desserts. Of course, there’ll be extra “Slap Ya Mama” and Tony Chachere’s seasoning on hand to spice up the meal! On Sunday morning, Dr. Scarborough will be preaching during the morning worship service at 10:45 a.m. This will be a great time of praise, worship, prayer, and renewal. The church family at Southside-Carthage invites you and your family to join them! “Laissez le bon temps rouler” …”let the GOD times roll” with your friends at Southside! Southside is located at 1501 West Sabine Street in Carthage, on the corner of Hwy 315 at the loop. For more information, call 903-693-6397 during regular office hours.
