News -- for the week of March 8, 2021
We are spending this week praying for the Annie Armstrong Easter offering. I have enjoyed reading the stories of the different missionaries in the prayer pamphlet and praying for the needs for which they have given requests. It helps you realize the importance of supporting missionary work in North America. Not only can we go to the nations and share the gospel, but the nations are coming to us and there are still so many lost people within the United States that we must be prepared to share the hope of Christ here. In addition to praying, we have begun taking up the Annie Armstrong Easter offering. Right now we have taken up $3,675 of our $10,000 goal.
Let me encourage everyone to mark their calendar for the Community wide Easter Egg Hunt we will be organizing at the park on April 3. It is going to be a wonderful opportunity for children to have fun and for us to share the story of Christ’s resurrection with them. There will be a need for plenty of volunteers with this event, and so I would encourage you to call Stacey Harriman and see where you might be able to serve.
This past Sunday I preached on fasting and in light of Sundays message and to prepare for our Easter outreach & other evangelistic efforts in the future, I would like to call for a lunchtime fast on Thursday April 1. I want to encourage our members to skip eating during their lunchtime and to spend time in prayer to the Lord, asking him to bring revival in Ashley County and to provide opportunities for us to share the gospel with lost people in our community. If you cannot fast during lunch, I would encourage you to find another mealtime that day to pray.
This Wednesday night we are continuing our Revive/Renew series. We are going to be looking at Col. 3:16 and Ps. 119 to talk about how we are to let God's word dwell richly in our lives. Because the word of God dwells deeply in our lives, our entire life should be impacted by that! I cannot wait to worship with the students!
I hope you’re having a great week so far and looking forward to worshipping together on Sunday!
If you’re interested in singing in the choir, please join us. I would love to order extra music if the need arises!
Some new developments are happening for our sanctuary very soon including a new sound board. The company that we’re using offers training for audio and video so if you’re interested in learning how to run the board in the sanctuary, please let me know!
As I’ve said before, if you ever need anything from me, please let me know.
