Newsletter - September 2015

Wow! Did August fly by? We had a great month here at the church and what a way to finish out the month with homecoming. We had a full church on Sunday as we heard from 2 former members speak about what they and their families are doing on the mission fields (Uganda and Nepal) for Christ. It was great to see some faces that we haven’t seen in awhile as we celebrated 170 years of church fellowship. I would like to take this time to thank everyone that took part with cooking or just helping out. We start a new Sunday school book this Sunday so it would be a great time to come and join us for Sunday school and while you are at it stick around for worship since you will be here anyways and learn more about God’s Word. Some of you might not have heard that the youth meet at 9:30 on Sunday morning for a Praise and Worship time and they invite everyone to join them as they Praise God with some more upbeat music.

Now here is what we can see going in right now:

-5 Sept 3pm-6pm Back to school bash for all school aged children
-19 Sept. See you at the pole youth prayer rally at ABC(Acadian Baptist Center) in Eunice, LA
-25 Sept 6:30pm with movie starting at 7pm movie night (Do You Believe) popcorn and snacks all are invited and bring a neighbor.

Now for the pastor ‘s bite: September ushers in Fall, as the temperature starts to cool off and the leaves start to fall and we all start getting busy. School is in full swing and I know the woods are starting to call many of you as hunting season begins. With that being said how about hunting for something new in God’s word. Proverbs 2:1 My son, if you accept my words and store up my commands within you, 2 listening closely to wisdom and directing your heart to understanding; 3 furthermore, if you call out to insight and lift your voice to understanding, 4 if you seek it like silver and search for it like hidden treasure, 5 then you will understand the fear of the Lord and discover the knowledge of God. HCSB. Now if you are hunting for something true and real this “hidden treasure” in God’s word, that gives you understanding of the fear of the Lord and the knowledge of God is something worth hunting for. So let’s not get to busy this fall that we can’t do some hunting in God’s Word. Come and share some of this hunting trip with us on Sunday’s where we will tell you the truth of where the best hunting spot is and not try to keep it to ourselves like some hunting spots and I‘ll save you a seat on Sunday.

In Christ’s Love

Pastor, Eugene
