News -- for the week of October 20, 2020
Once again I must thank all of you for the wonderful gifts for Pastor Appreciation Month. You have made this pastor feel loved. Thank you for being a wonderful church family.
A week from Wednesday is our Trunk or Treat on the square. This event will give us a wonderful opportunity to reach out to our community with the gospel. Even if you do not plan on decorating a trunk you can invite children in your neighborhood and come and talk with the people who come to our event. You can contact the church office, Stacey Harriman, or Karen Morris if you need more details. Our church Outreach Committee is planning on starting a once a month soup kitchen for lunch for the needy in our community. Our first drive up soup kitchen will begin Tuesday November 16. I would encourage you to contact Brad Davis or me if you would like to serve in this ministry.
Please do not forget to bring silent auction items for the Lottie Moon Christmas offering. We still plan on setting that up for the first week in November. We hope it will be a great kickstart for our Lottie Moon Christmas offering this year. Southern Baptist missionaries around the world are supported by this offering.
This week we are finishing up our Nothing New series by digging into the last part of Ecclesiastes 3. This is a weird one to end on because it is all about injustice and death. However, just like with everything in Ecclesiastes, it is all about perspective. Where do you find your hope? Is it in the world or possessions or in the One who can give perfect hope, rest, peace, and purpose. It is going to be a great night of worship and I cannot wait to see the students there!
I hope you’re all having a fantastic week! We’re doing our choir ensembles and they’re going great so far! I’m so thankful for those that have decided to sing with us this year.
