Dear Church Family,
Summer has come and gone and it was one of the busiest summers I can remember. Although busy, it was exciting. We saw our Sunday School soar instead of slump. The architect completed the plans for use of our property with a youth building and a new sanctuary. We voted to move forward on the youth building. The estimated cost is between $200,000 and $250,000. This is just an estimate and we are gathering all the information and will report when we have it in. What we all can be doing is giving to the building fund toward this project. As I preached in a sermon, “God is calling us to something bigger than ourselves.”
We need to be faithful in these days to Sunday School and Worship services. We need to invite people to come with us. As you receive this Newsletter, we will be a few days from our Revival meetings and Homecoming. This is a great time to invite people to church. Remember, our goal is 150 in Sunday School that morning. We have had 130 and I believe 150 is a reachable goal, but it will take everyone, plus one, to make it happen. May God get the glory for it all.
Be much in prayer for our Revival. Pray for Dr. Ron Lynch, William Beck and Jeff Cleghorn as they come to lead us. Pray for wisdom as we work on the youth building plans. Pray that God will raise up Sunday School teachers so we can start new classes. Pray for souls to be saved and the maturing of the saints. Pray for me to have God’s mind in these days. Pray for our country and for Israel.
Folks, I love you and I look forward to seeing you Sunday as we receive a word from the Word.
Serving the Savior,
