 Proverbs 11:30“The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.”

            Am I responsible before God for everyone with whom I have contact?  “Yes!”  As Spirit-filled Christians we are to share Jesus Christ with every individual with whom we have contact.

            A small child wandered off into a gravel pit.  The fire department and rescue divers rushed to the pit and after about half an hour they found the child’s body.  People frantically rushed about doing CPR and everything in their power, all to no avail.  The child was dead.

            I’ve often wondered that if the energy and dedication that was devoted to the task of rescuing this little child were channeled into the effort of rescuing lost souls, what the results would be.

            The most exciting thing that can happen to you as a Christian is the thrill of being involved when someone comes to Christ!

            We get excited about football, baseball, and apple pie; let’s get excited about serving and sharing the wonderful Gospel of Jesus Christ!

 

 

 

 

Music Ministry

 

“What!!  Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit?”  These are attention getting words from Paul that should open our eyes to where God dwells after we accept Him as Lord and Savior.  All through the Bible it states that God was in the temple.  Then Jesus said that we should worship God in spirit and in truth.  Hence we cannot worship Him in spirit unless we have His spirit within us.  Therefore, anything that we get involved in, whether good or evil, we become a part of it.  We become one in it.  So Paul wanted us to really understand, that we must keep ourselves pure because our body is the dwelling place for God.  That way it is a comfort to know where He is and He will never leave us.  Thank you, Lord for living in me.       Bro. Danny

Sunday School

 

Sunday School Promotion- A time to reflect with fond memories and

a time to look forward with ambitious expectations.

Remember What You Have Been Taught

Psalm 28:7 - The LORD is my strength and my shield; in him my heart trusts, and I am helped;

my heart exults, and with my song I give thanks to him.”

Walk Forward in the Lord

Jeremiah 29:11For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil,

to give you a future and a hope.”

Be Happy in the Lord

Psalms 37:4  “Delight yourself in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart.”
Looking forward to seeing you in Sunday School at 10 a.m.                                Bro. Tommy Johnson

 
 
 
 
Young at Heart News
 
Beginning September 4, we will begin our monthly fellowship at Noon. 
Bring your favorite dish/dishes and fellowship with some of the greatest folks around!
Senior Spotlight!
This month we would like to honor two very special members – Jesse and Pat Jones.  This couple truly loves the Lord and take every opportunity to share the love of God wherever they can – Mr. Jesse through his music and Mrs. Pat through her crafts.
Mr. Jesse was born on January 26, served in the USAD and worked as a TV technician most of his life.  His favorite color is red, and he loves sports and crafts.  When asked something interesting about himself, he said, “I am old but capable.”  Wow!
Mrs. Pat was born December 5, her favorite color is blue, and she loves to crochet.  She was a housewife and mother and enjoyed raising her two sons.  Mrs. Pat is known for her special bookmarks which she uses to witness.  What a wonderful example for all of us. 
I want to encourage each of you to get involved and do what you can for the Lord.  ALL of us can do SOMETHING, so let’s start today and commit to doing more for His kingdom.  Love you, Reva
