Colossians 3:17 - “And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.”

The little boy was graduating from the first to the second grade.  Now he loved his teacher and it really bothered him that she would not be his teacher in the second grade.  In all the wisdom of a first grader, he looked at her and said, “Mrs. Smith I sure wish you were smart enough to be my teacher in the second grade. “

What an impression Mrs. Smith had made on one little boy’s life!

I wonder what kind of an impression are we making on the world we’re living in?  What kind of impression am I making?

Pearl River County is our mission field and our ministry must be engaged in with a sense of urgency.  One day soon the Bride of Christ will be complete, that last person to be saved will be saved, then Jesus will return.   Wouldn’t it be great if that last person would be one to whom you shared the Gospel with and they found Christ in and accepted it.

God spoke to David some words that can be applied to each of us:

Psalm 78:70-72 - “He chose David also his servant, and took him from the sheepfolds: 71 From following the ewes great with young he brought him to feed Jacob his people, and Israel his inheritance. 72  So he fed them according to the integrity of his heart; and guided them by the skilfulness of his hands.”

I want to encourage you to pray that God will show us the heart of Pearl River County and then that we will be ready as good stewards of the ministry entrusted to our care and keeping.

May we have the heart of Isaiah as he prayed: 

Isaiah 6:8 - Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.”

 
MUSIC MINISTRY

There is no power compared to God’s power.  There have been many experiments with nuclear and atomic power and all involved share how powerful they can deliver.  Lots of supersonic jet planes delivering thousands pounds of thrust. Man had developed all types of powerful machines, computers, but standing on the back patio and hearing the big rolling thunder.  See the mighty winds blow, yet that does not even compare with the power of God. He who created everything, keeps all the planets in order, causes the seasons to change, is the most powerful of all creation.  Lots of people who shun or deny God do not realize who they are dealing with. No one can compare with His glory and His power, but all will see very soon when He returns. When He says that’s enough, then all will see his great power, wow!  Even so Lord Jesus come quickly! Amen! God bless us all!

SUNDAY SCHOOL

We the Church want everyone to invite a friend and a family member to Sunday School and church.  Let’s fill the House of Worship, so people can be taught and preached the Word of God to. Spiritual leaders can have a great influence.  Is God calling you to be a spiritual leader? How will you respond? Ask yourself this question and watch what God will do in your life.       Bro. Lutrelle, S.S. Director

 
Young at Heart News

Heading into November with a grateful heart!  As a people, we have so much to praise God for!  Begin each day by praising Him for just a few of your blessings; after a few days you will be amazed at the level of gratitude you feel!

November dates to remember:

November 5 - Local Voting

November 11 - Field trip to Mitchell Farms in Collins, MS.  We will leave the church at 9:15 AM and will stop at the Main Street Cafe for a buffet lunch.  At 12:30 PM, we will tour the farm on a handicap accessible wagon. After the tour, you can purchase pumpkins, peanuts, and other fresh produce from the gift shop.  Cost is $10, plus lunch.

November 12 - Young at Heart Thanksgiving luncheon at Noon.  Two of our members will be our guest speakers.

I am thankful for each of you!
