As I opened my email this morning, I prayed for the right verse for me to pop up. It did! Thank you, Lord Jesus! I needed that reminder.
Have I not commanded you?
Be strong and courageous.
Do not be afraid;
do not be discouraged,
for the LORD your God will be with you
wherever you go.”
Pray for Mr. Johnny and Mrs. Juanita Pritchett today and in the coming days.
Members of Justin Lambert‘s family continue to request prayers on his behalf.
Richard Dees of Amite, long time voice of WABL radio station, has been hospitalized for several days and undergoing tests. Please pray for Richard.

Mission organizations for children will begin next Wednesday night at FBC, Kentwood. There will be a meeting for volunteer workers Sunday evening at 5:30 in the L-wing with classes 6-7 P.M. Wednesday nights. We will have classes for children from pre-school to fifth grade in the coming school year. (Grades 6-12 are meeting in the lighthouse for youth activities.) I’m so excited for this to finally be on the schedule! If you have any questions, please contact me by phone, Facebook, or email.
Tonight – Patriotic Ladies’ Night at 6:15 in the fellowship hall. We will be so blessed by someone special who will be there.
Tuesday – “Young” Ladies’ Birthday Party at the Cafe at 11:00 A.M.
Mission Project – Operation Christmas Child
- We will be working on this until the end of October, but need to work steadily to fill many, many boxes for little children. If we wait too late, some of those boxes will not be filled and children will miss out.
- As always, if you can not shop for OCC, feel free to ask us to shop for you.
- I encourage each class and group to work in the collecting and packing process. You’ll be so blessed.
