God is Faithful!by Pastor Mike Winfree on April 1, 2012
Dear Church Family,
God is faithful! He said if we would plant seeds and give water, there would be a harvest. In the month of March we had 11 join our church family. I thank the Lord for each of them. Be praying for them as they get to know us and we get to know them, and as they find places of service in the body.
Sunday School continues to grow. We had our highest attendance to date last month. New kids are continuing to come to AWANA.
I’m believing we will have a packed house Easter Sunday . Bring someone with you on this resurrection morning. We will come forward that morning to give our offerings and will receive our Annie Armstrong offering. Be prepared to give toward that to support our North American Missions work.
On April 15 we will have our Quarterly Church Conference (Business meeting). One of the things we will discuss that evening will relate to future plans for Oakland Baptist Church. I’m asking all church members to be present at this meeting.
Lastly, let me encourage you to be faithful in your daily Bible reading and prayer. The Lord is blessing and the devil doesn’t like it. We need to be alert and on guard for all of his tactics. Stay close to the Lord and the devil won’t have a chance.
Serving the Savior,
