Saturday Addition

Rev. Brady Haynes’ mother, Peggy Haynes (Written by Christy)

PLEASE PRAY! 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼Does anyone know any Doctors or nurses at Princeton Hospital in Birmingham, AL? Brady’s mother Peggy Haynes is in ICU, and we want to make sure as many people as possible are looking out for her medical care and are praying for her. Our kids & family are all spread out right now (hours apart) Orlando, Jacksonville and Pensacola. We are gathering the chicks over the next 24hrs to all be there with her. Mom Haynes has several organs not doing well at present (kidneys and liver) and they think she may also have pneumonia. She is also in pain. The Doctors are saying a 20% chance. Now is the time for your prayers💕🙏🏼God please bless her mind & body and bring her through this. We know you already have her spirit 💕

Rev. Jeff Mizell is pastor of Line Creek Baptist Church.

You have probably heard someone say “You only have one life to live.” What a true statement. With only one time around in this old world, how can we make the best of it? In the morning, we will look in God’s Word together for the answer during the 10am worship service. As many of you know, this is the first message that I will preach since Fathers Day due to vocal cord problems. I am excited and nervous at the same time. I have a lot of rules to go by in order to use my voice and not loose it. However, I am grateful to have to opportunity to try preaching again. Thank you for your prayers! Love y’all


Then Agrippa said to Paul,

“Do you think that in such a short time

you can persuade me to be a Christian?”

Paul replied, “Short time or long—

I pray to God that not only you

but all who are listening to me today

may become what I am,

except for these chains.”

~Acts 26:28-29~

Please continue to pray for little Lampton Titus, child of Tedd and Kayla Titus.

Miss Fay Shoemaker‘s surgery Thursday went well.  Additional tests are being done.


Please pray for the family of Mrs. Esther Watkins who passed away yesterday in Mississippi.  Many of you will know her as Matt Williams’ grandmother.

Operation Christmas Child “Shoeboxes”

  • Tomorrow, we will be collection wash cloths and bars of soap.
  • Next week, we will focus on barrettes and other hair fixings for little girls.
  • Again, I must say thank-you to the many people who have contributed in various ways.  Together, we can make this another very productive year.
  • We are getting to the point when we will put our boxes together the first Saturday of November.  I hope to see many of you at the Packing Party.  I promise you will be blessed when you see the many shoeboxes you have helped to pack.



I want to conclude today with a Facebook post Bro. Danny Smith of Spring Creek Baptist Church shared this morning.  I’m sure it will touch your heart like it did mine.  Before you read it, I want to say how thankful I am for all who have served in Texas, Louisiana, or Florida in the last month.  I know of members from East Fork, New Zion, and Spring Creek who have already worked with Disaster Relief in these areas.  Thank-you to each one and each church represented!

The last three or four days have been a blur and in many ways I have felt a little disconnected not being able to do what I love to do but these last few days in Fort Meyers have really blessed me beyond measure.

First I have met some “volunteers” who work harder and longer than I have ever worked before in my life. If there is a space on my body that is not sore I can’t identify it! But my heart is full!

Second today we had someone from the community who came and volunteered with us they just wanted to give something back. She worked hard right alone with us and then thanked us for coming to help. She said she and her husband will be back tomorrow.

Tonight we all went out to eat-you will probably see the pictures of us eating what you can’t or won’t see and what you don’t know is the kindness we were shown and appreciation we were given.

I could not handle it and teared up more than once. To have these strangers come thank us just for being here, to have people want to take our picture, to have people bring us some candy or just stop by to say thanks and talk for a moment was more than I could take. But after washing my face I was able to just look at the faces of people who saw who we are and where we are from as they simply thanked us. It reminded me why ministries like this are so important.

I hope that there will never be a need for this kind of ministry again but if there is I hope it works out where you can take part in it. Yes it’s work- next time I will try to go with a lazier crew-but it is doing what Jesus talked about when He talked about giving a cup of cold water in His name.

I look forward to being back home but I will always remember these days as God has blessed and meeting these people has touched my life!

I think I will always remember the one guy who look like he wanted to say something but just could not bring himself to do it. He finally looked me straight in the eye made sure I was looking and nodded as if to say thanks but I can’t talk about it but I feel it. I know what he meant! God bless!


May this day bless your life in a special way!  May you be a blessing to some else today!

Submit yourselves, then, to God.

Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
