News -- for the week of October 14 - 20, 2019
Thank you so much for all of the gifts we have received for Pastor Appreciation month. I love this church very much and want you to know that you all have been a blessing to Alex, Philip, and me. We are excited to see what God has in store for this church body in the years ahead, and we are glad to serve alongside the members of First Baptist in this sojourn.
I am excited especially about this Sunday because we will be celebrating the importance of children. God has blessed this church with an abundance of children that we are called to disciple in the days before us. So this Sunday we will spend some time talking about the opportunity and task that God has laid before us in preparing the next generation. Please plan to be here this Sunday morning.
This Wednesday is the 9th week of our 10 Questions series! We are so closing this one out! This week we will look at this question: Does God have a plan for my life? We are going to briefly dig into the Great Commission again but then talk about how God has given us gifts that we are to be using to serve! It is going to be a great night and I cannot wait to worship with the students!
This Friday is a home game which means we have another 5th Quarter! Last week we had 108 students there and I need to give a big thank you to the adults who helped run it while I was out of town! If you are free, we would love to have you come help this Friday night after the game!
Wednesday Night Suppers!! If you can cook & serve, contact Lonni Davis 500-3190.
”I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the Lord.” Psalm 122:1
So thankful for our choir last Sunday morning. Great job on the music. I also want to thank our Praise Band. Great sound. Getting better every week. Thank you all for a special day of worship.
I thought the “Fall Festival” was great. Lots of singers and lots of food. Thank you Nick and Nikki Martin and Kim Johns for cooking the food. I also want to thank everyone who helped set up. I want to especially thank those who stayed to put the chairs and tables away and those who helped get the ROC back in order (sort of). It was a good night.
I also want to thank the church for the special ministers recognition these past two weeks. You are so loving and kind. The basket from October 6 was awesome. I especially love the “Candy Gram” from last Sunday.
The choir will only rehearse Christmas music this Wednesday.
We will leave for Abe’s Ole Feed House this Friday at 4:30 (you don’t have to be a Senior Adult to go with us). If you haven’t confirmed that you are going, please call the church office now. Our plans are to take personal vehicles.
We need to make sure we have enough space for everyone, and I need to call Abe’s and let them know. The total for 1 person is $19.02, but you get what you pay for and it is good. Hot water cornbread, etoufee, turnip greens, peas, boiled shrimp, gumbo, chicken and dumplings, fried okra, fall off the bone ribs, catfish filets, catfish steaks, corn fritters, smoked sausage and much more!
