Revival begins Sunday, Nov. 4
Attendance Sunday morning was good. I was out so I don’t have anything about visitors, etc. Our prayer though is they will continue to come and be with us whenever God leads. The choir special was, “When the Morning Comes.” Other specials were “My Savior First of all,” by Pastor Ron; “When the Roll is called up yonder,” by Mark and Ellen Harville. Thanks to Brenda McAdams for the sermon notes Sunday. Bro. Ron continued message from Ephesians 2: 11-22. Three words that describe these scriptures are separated, reconciled and unified. Verse 12 – Separated, Gentiles were separated nationally. They were a different group of people separated from God spiritually. Verses 13-18 – Reconciled – This is what God did for the Gentiles. He brought both groups together, Jews and Gentiles. He preached peace and hope to both groups. He abolished the Law of Commandments. Verses 19-22 –Unified – We are no longer strangers and aliens but we are family and fellow citizens with the saints. We are one in Christ. In closing we have everything we need to do what God wants us to do.
Sunday afternoon at 5 p.m. we had our regular quarterly conference.
Sunday night at 6 p.m. attendance was good with visitors. We had congregational singing then the “Whosoever Will” group and singing by Ellen and Mark Harville. Bro. Ron’s message, “Second Coming,” Matthew 24 and other scripture.
Next Saturday, Oct. 27 the Fall Mission Festival will be held at Brownwood beginning at 3:30 p.m. Games for the children, Trunk or Treat and a Cake Walk are some things being planned. The church picnic will begin at 5:30 p.m. All proceeds will go to mission work.
Thanks to all who came and supported the youth with the Pancake and Sausage breakfast. Your help is greatly appreciated.

God’s strength is best seen in our weakness.
To be found you must admit that you’re lost.
Wisdom is understanding what’s really important.
There’s not a storm He cannot still.
Life without hope is a life without meaning.
Being grandparents is God’s reward for growing old.
Decision: The choice is ours.
With the Lord no situation is hopeless
Before a man can stand like a man he has to be one.
When all else is lost the future still remains.
Be as gentle with others’ faults as you are your own.
Some sermons are a mile long and an inch deep.
Feed your faith and your doubts will starve to death.
Through a tragedy, someone wakes u.
It’s what you learn after you know it all that counts.
If you have faith God has the power.
Pray for our nation and VOTE!
