Newsletter - November 2015

October has come to a close and 2016 will be here before you know it. The Fall Festival was a good time as the children played games and ate snacks and thank all of you fro bringing your children and to those that helped out. The shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child are coming together as we get them ready to drop off before the 22nd of Nov. We have around 100 and thanks to everyone who has helped with those and if you have not been able to, we still have to pay for the shipping at $7 per box, so we would gladly accept any donation to go toward the shipping. Let me ask you to bring a friend with you as you come and join us as we approach the Thanksgiving season and learn more about Jesus through His Word.

Now here is what we can see going in right now:
  • 6 Nov 6:30pm Movie night “Do You Believe” movie starts at 7pm come join us for popcorn, snacks, and the movie
  • 13 Nov late breaking news Youth lock-in starts at 5pm anyone left after 10 pm stays for the night. See Ms Jenny for more info
  • 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: November brings with it Thanksgiving and what thoughts does this bring with it? How about turkey and football? Yes plenty of people will observe both of those but what about you? Just think about the name THANKS and GIVING! Who or what are you thankful to or for? As each day pass by I am more and more thankful for what God has and is doing for me and this community. I look forward to spending time in His word each day so that God can talk to me through it and hopefully to you through me at times. In 2 Samuel 7 as David begins a thanksgiving prayer to God vs.18 Then King David went in, sat in the Lord’s presence, and said, Who am I, Lord God, and what is my house that You have brought me this far? (HCSB) Yes this is how I feel when I look back over the year and see the Blessings from Heaven and realize that God has brought me so far. Not just this year but in my life and yes there were some bad times but I try to look at Gods blessing surrounding those times. So I ask you to come and join us this month as we begin thanking God during this time of the year, and I‘ll save you a seat on Sunday.

In Christ’s Love

Pastor, Eugene
