wherever you go.”

Many of the church youth will be leaving tonight for camp in Georgia this week.  Pray for the camp to minister to them and touch their young lives.  Pray for the adults who will accompany the youth that they will have wisdom and understanding, as well as patience. Pray for each youth to be open to all the opportunities to grow in the Lord.  May the youth come back and be a mighty force in influencing other youth as well as the adults and children in our church.

SBC: The World’s Largest Family Reunion – https://www.imb.org/2017/06/22/sbc-the-worlds-largest-family-reunion/ – Take time to consider how your church could fill in your area of the map.  We can make a bigger difference if we all work together!

 

Many of us will be shopping some in the next few days.  Consider beginning your shopping for Operation Christmas Child.  Items that you might consider – bars of soap, washcloths, toy cars and dolls, balls, small purses, and flashlights with batteries.

 

Have a blessed day!  Be a blessing to someone!

“The LORD brings death and makes alive;

he brings down to the grave and raises up.

 The LORD sends poverty and wealth;

he humbles and he exalts.

~1 Samuel 2:6-7~

This verse doesn’t say so, but he also sends the rain and the sunshine.

 

Tropical storm “Cindy” will soon be here.  I think I should ask you to be prepared for lots of rain.  My neighborhood will not flood, but I pray for those facing more flooding, especially those who have not recovered from the flood of last August yet.  Remember to take precautions ahead of time. http://www.actionnews17.com/news/tangipahoa-parish-government-monitors-tropical-weather-2124411

 

Continue to pray for the leaders of our world and our country.

 

Thank God for the many Vacation Bible Schools in our area this summer.  I love seeing the many pictures posted on Facebook.  I think VBS is the greatest thing churches do for children all year long.  Thankfully, most churches have VBS and invest time, money, and love into it each year.

 

Read the Bible – Jeremiah 14-17 & Psalm 17

Friday Morning Bible Study will be at 10 A.M. Friday in the fellowship hall of FBC.

 

Operation Christmas Child will send “shoeboxes” to thousands of children in November IF we make our purchases and pack the boxes for shipment.  To do this in a big way means we need to shop in a big way beginning now.  Smart shoppers always have their eyes open for sales and for seasonal items.  Those who shop now are welcome to bring their items to my Sunday School room.  I will store them until we pack the boxes.  We want to help some needy children have some special items and INTRODUCE THEM TO JESUS!

 

“Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.”

~Colossians 3:2 NIV~

“When they Ring those Golden Bells”

FBC, Kentwood has their bells(chimes) ringing at times that give people who attend church, but live out of town, get to hear them.  People in town can enjoy them every day. Thanks to those who undertook to purchase the bells years ago and to those who keep them going today.  The music is certainly beautiful.

Make a point of hearing some of the songs that first impacted your live.

Monday

For where your treasure is,

there your heart will be also.

Dennis Travis is out of North Oaks and doing much better.  Thank you for praying for him.

Pray for Mrs. Anne Hurst as she has an MRI on her knee Wednesday and then gets results.

Mr. J.D. Smith will be having shoulder surgery next week.  Pray all goes well and the surgery relieves him of his pain.

Pray for the youth of FBC, Kentwood, New Zion, and Spring Creek as they go to camp in GA at the end of this week.  Pray for the Lord to touch hearts, friendships to be strengthened, and for traveling grace.  I thank God the children will have this opportunity.

What man among you, if his son asks him for bread, will give him a stone?

how much more will your Father in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!
