Newsletter - January 2016

It’s 2016 now and what all is in store for this year. I hope you was able to join us for the Christmas program but if not it was great. All the children did great and thanks so much for all that helped pull it together. The best part of the program was that it told the real meaning of Christmas “The birth of our Savior Jesus Christ”. We also took up a great offering for the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering thank you to all those that gave. I hope that you will start the New Year off with us for Sunday school and worship on Sunday as we learn more from His Word and by all means bring a friend with you.
Now here is what we can see going in right now:
  • Jan 23 The “march for life South” in Baton Rouge.
  • Jan 30 The “march for life Central” in Alexandria the youth are going to this one.
  • Feb 5 Movie night “The Drop Box” 6:30 pm movie starts at 7 pm.
Now for the pastor‘s bite: January 2016 is here and how exciting this is. There is no better time to start reading your Bible everyday. Set a goal of reading through the Bible in a year or maybe 3 years. Look online and you can find plans for both but wouldn’t it be great if next year at this time you could say that you read through the Bible. Another good goal would be to share Jesus with at least one person this year and to invite them or someone else to church. Sometimes we let the past keep us from going forward like “I started read the Bible before but never finished” or “I always get nervous when I talk to others about Jesus or church”. In Isaiah chapter 43 we get some hope for us average people vs. 18 “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. 19 See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.(NIV) This was the Lord speaking and He says that He will make a way and don’t dwell on the past. So let me encourage you to do something new for God this year and if you fall, get up and pick up were you left off. So I hope you have a Blessed New Years and come join us on Sundays, and I‘ll save you a seat.

In Christ’s Love

Pastor, Eugene

Reminder: Sunday school starts at 10am and worship starts at 11am Praise with the youth 9:30am
