Men’s Day at Midway Baptist Jan. 22

Published 4:16 pm Tuesday, January 17, 2012

This year’s Men’s Day at Midway Baptist Church will be a little different than in previous years, church officials said. Rabbi Andy Meyerson, a Manhattan native, who was brought up in the Jewish faith and later converted to Christianity, will be the guest speaker. The service will begin at 11 a.m. and a covered dish luncheon will follow after the worship service on Sunday, Jan. 22.
Meyerson will share his story of growing up in Manhattan, attending a Hebrew school and having a bar mitzvah. He will also share how he became a Christian, after visiting a Christian home in the 1970s. He said, “The next thing I know, I’m accepting Jesus as my Lord and Savior and getting dunked in a bathtub.”
He said he felt as though he was sort of in limbo between two faiths for several years, until 1997, when he saw a sign for a Messianic synagogue and went for a visit. Attendees of a Messianic synagogue observe Jewish holy days and worship but recognize Jesus Christ as the messiah. Meyerson is now serving as rabbi of Beth Shiloh Messianic Synagogue in Asheville, N.C. and a new Messianic synagogue in Moore, S.C.
Everyone is invited to attend this special service. Midway Baptist is located on Hwy. 108 E, Columbus. For more information, you may visit
