Items for Operation Christmas Child are school supplies; any kind of supplies that will fit in the shoebox are welcome
Sunday morning attendance was down we know of some who are sick and need family members with them and others we haven’t heard from them. We had visitors and we’re thankful they came to worship with us. We hope they received a blessing and will come and be with us again soon as God leads. The choir’s special, “There’s a Lord that is fairer than day.” Another special, “Wonderful Words of Life,” by Pastor Ron. Bro. Ron’s message, “Greatest Promise in the Bible to me,” Romans 10: 8-13. The Bible is given to us to live by. All have sinned and come short of the glory of God, keeping the law, being good; doing good works etc. will not get you saved. We are saved by grace. The basic element of the gospel is the Death, Burial and Resurrection of Christ, the basic assumption of the gospel is we believe God raised Jesus from the dead, our personal trust is believing in the heart not the head. The key verse in this is Romans 10:13, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” We are whosoever, we’re a somebody and Jesus is our Blessed Hope we’re to call upon His name with any need we have to turn from sin. We can’t do it on our own. God is Holy, Pure and Righteous, He deserves our references. The blessed name of the gospel is Jesus, the Savior of the world. The Blessed Assurance of the gospel is, “We’ll be Saved,” the joy of the Lord is our strength.
Items for Operation Christmas Child for August are school supplies, any kind of supplies to go in a regular size shoebox. We thank everyone for their help.
