Fall is here and September is in the books as they say. We had a good turn out for the back to school bash with a water slide, snacks, and games. Thanks to all that helped and to those that joined in the fun. The youth had a great day at see-you-at-the-pole youth rally in Eunice. They started the day shopping for items to go into the shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child, more to come on that. Hope that you will come and join the youth for Praise and Worship on Sunday mornings followed by Sunday school and then worship and while you are at it bring a friend.
Now here is what we can see going in right now:
- 23 Oct 6pm-8:30pm Fall Festival for the children come and join us
- 16-22 Nov Operation Christmas Child shoe box pick up (the youth have put together about 100 boxes and we do need the shipping on these boxes which is $7 ea)
- 23-24 Nov Youth Evangelism Conference (YEC) in Lafayette all youth see Ms Jenny for more information.
Now for the pastor ‘s bite: October is a time of the year that brings in the “Holidays” and times for family and friends with suppers and backyard fires. Some of the things that we think about a lot as we enjoy these times is safety. It’s food safety maybe hunting safety and even fire safety as we don’t want to burn our houses down, but what about the safety of your heart and mind for eternity. In Proverbs 4 it is written 11- I am teaching you the way of wisdom; I am guiding you on straight paths. 12- When you walk, your steps will not be hindered; when you run, you will not stumble. 13- Hold on to instruction; don’t let go. Guard it, for it is your life. (HCSB). So let me encourage you to hold on to God’s instructions for your life and not just holding on to them but reading and applying His word to your life. We all have something more that we could learn from His word and in the process of that learning we can help guard our heart and mind from evil. with that being said I hope that you will come and join us on Sunday’s as we search The Bible for God’s truth and wisdom for our life, and I‘ll save you a seat on Sunday.
In Christ’s Love
Reminder: Sunday school starts at 10am and worship starts at 11am Praise with the youth 9:30am
