“He will stand and shepherd them in the strength of Yahweh,
in the majestic name of Yahweh His God.
They will live securely,
for then His greatness will extend to the ends of the earth.
He will be their peace.”

Please collect used, but still usable shoes, for us to contribute to Re-Store in Amite. We are especially looking for children’s and men’s shoes. You can drop them off if the baskets at the main and office entrances to the church. Sunday will be the last day for you to do this. During the month of September, we will be collecting used, but usable, school uniforms of all sizes. You can drop them off at the baskets at the office and main entrances to FBC, Kentwood. You do not have to be a member of this church to help with the project.
The Lucy Bible Study will begin this week. Meet in the fellowship hall at 10:00 Friday. Bring your Bible. The study will not require homework of money. Each lesson is on a new topic, so if you miss one week, you pick up with the next topic the following week. Come laugh and study with us!
