Father’s Day - Sunday, June 20

Regular AM Services







Do you look forward to attending church on Sunday mornings?  I have noticed a drop in Church attendance, not just in our Church but others as well.  In Psalms 122:1, David says, “I was glad when they said unto me, let us go into the house of the Lord.”  We all experience a time of peace, of comfort when we go to church.  We get strength from being in God’s house and fellowship with other Christians.  We need to be faithful to church, it is for our benefit, and also God tells us to attend.  Everyone should get into the habit of being in God’s house on Sunday morning.  Will you come, I will meet you there.  God bless us all!                                                    Bro. Danny








    Finally! School is out. Summertime is here! That means vacations, summer jobs, and/or a time to relax. Students are going to PCB for camp and later this month our church will have VBS. A personal testimony about VBS. I remember at the age of eight learning about the ABCs of Jesus. A - Admit that you are a sinner. B - Believe in Jesus Christ.  C - Confess your faith in Jesus. I'm thankful for my home church for investing their lives into children like me. That week the gospel was planted into my heart. Today, by God's sovereignty and his grace, I serve God's church because a person signed up to volunteer for an insignificant position during VBS.

   What an exciting time we had at our May luncheon! It had been fourteen months since we last met, so everyone was thrilled to catch up with friends. We had a picnic-style meal with lots of yummy food, as usual. Twenty-two members attended along with two guests - that should show we were ready for food and fellowship again!!!!! Many stated how thankful they were to finally sit with friends, face-to-face, and hug a neck or two. Small things are some of God's greatest blessings!

     I encourage each of you to attend our next meeting, Tuesday, June 1, at noon and bring a guest. Sheriff David Allison will be our guest speaker and he will update us on issues in our county. He and his deputies always do a great job, so come out and support them. And by the way, make sure to bring some of that great cookin - we have been told our food is the best in the county!!!!!!

     Look forward to seeing all of you on the 1st! Love you!

It is that time of the year, when we start packing shoeboxes.  Our goal this year is 333 shoeboxes.  If you would like to make a monetary donation for supplies, we will do the shopping for you.  If you would like to help out by buying supplies, we would greatly appreciate it also.

Here is a list of items that are needed:

Wash cloths, tooth brushes, hair brushes, deodorant, bars of soap, crayons, scissors, & note pads.

We can’t wait to schedule our packing party.  God is doing great things in this ministry!

Thanks, Mary, Shoebox Coordinator
