Enough about me...

by Pastor Mike Winfree on September 4, 2017
Dear Church,
        I have been counting the days when I could get back in the pulpit and preach again.  The doctor has released me to do that beginning the first Sunday of September. God is good and continues to strengthen me day by day.  Again, thank you for your prayers.  There is no doubt they have made a difference.  Now that’s enough about me.
        On October first, Oakland Baptist Church will celebrate 93 years in the Lord’s service.  Like any church, it has had its ups and downs but God has been right there every step of the way.  I can’t wait to see what God is going to do in the years to come.
On that Sunday, we will celebrate Homecoming and start our Revival meetings with Bucky Kennedy.  Bucky has been with us before and he has since gone into fulltime evangelistic work.  Bucky will be a blessing.  Following the morning service, we will have dinner on the grounds with everyone bringing enough for your family and one more. It will be a busy day because we will come back that evening as we continue our revival meetings through Wednesday night.  Begin now to ask your friends, relatives, neighbors, and associates to come as your guest that day and week.  If we all work hard there is no doubt in my mind that we can reach 160 in Sunday School.
Lastly, there is much work to be done.  The Live Nativity will consume much of our time, but there are many other things as well that we must get done.  I will talk more about those things as I return.
I love you folks and may God bless you and your families.

Serving the Savior, Pastor Mike
