From the Desk of Bro. Billy


      The pandemic continues and we are still uncertain as to what we should do and the direction we should take.  There is uncertainty on every hand but at the same time we have the certainty of God’s Word:
Mark 4:38-39 - “38 And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish? 39 And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.
The disciples confessed that they were perishing.  Now they had always handled problems themselves and they started out with the same mind-set in this situation, but here they are confessing their human inability.  They needed help!  
We have here a picture of our world today, we’ve handled it in the past and we can handle it now!  There is chaos and termoil and man in trying to fix it, and with all their knowledge and ability they are failing.  Folks, we need the hand of God to intervene but as we look at our world and especially at our nation, we see man still attempting to handle our situation.
Matthew 11:28 - “28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”
Maybe if we would look to Jesus and depend on Him more than we depend on ourselves, we might see Him stand in the bow of our little boat and speak the words, “Peace, be still!”
Jeremiah 33:3 - 3 Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.”
God bless you and keep you safe!








One very important thing is friendship.  Kinfolks, even in marriage is a strong relationship.  It does make a bond between people, husband and wife, and yes even kin.  You cannot have a real relationship with someone you don’t know or with someone that you don’t like, or respect.  Relationships between good friends, or anyone close to you, makes life sweeter and more pleasant.  I believe the sweetest relationship is the one we can have with Jesus.  He allows us to be as close to him as we wish to be.  He wants us to be close to him, and it is for our advantage.  Most of all to build a strong relationship with him.  How wonderful and amazing to think that the Lord of lords, the King of kings, wants to have a relationship with us.  Let’s make this a priority in our life.  Let’s really work at this to have a great relationship with Jesus.  It’s up to us, He is ready.  God bless us all.

Hobbies or past times are activities that we enjoy. Some of my favorite hobbies include hammocking, watching Survivor reruns, being creative with my coloring book, watching cars go left (NASCAR) and watching trucks fly (Stadium Super Trucks). But I must confess, sometimes reading God’s word seems like a chore. King David in Psalms 119 describes God’s word with joy, particularly in verse one, “How happy are those whose way is blameless, who walk according to the Lord’s instruction!” My prayer is that we see God’s word as a joy, a favorite past time, not a chore.

We are back to Wednesday night Bible studies!!

Sunday, September 20 - Student Lunch with their Families after Morning Worship.   Location: TBD





As school begins, let's remember to pray for our church family who are teachers, students, or staff. Pray for Alan as he leads our schools into these challenging days. Pray for Tara and Ben as they work diligently to keep the internet accessible for teachers and students. Pray for our bus drivers who carry the students back and forth. Pray for the administration for each school as they guide parents, teachers and students through this unprecedented year. Pray, pray, pray for a hedge of protection for all involved this school year.

With all of us praying, we are confident God will protect and bless our school year.

   Love you!   Reva
