Each of you should use
whatever gift you have received
to serve others,
as faithful stewards
of God’s grace in its various forms.
Please pray for Susan Rimes. This month marks five years since she started having problems with kidney stones. Sadly, she is still having the same issue. Please pray for her and for her family.
Robbie Lynn Kirby doesn’t live here any more, but we still hurt to hear that her health is not good. Remember to keep her in your prayers.
The Schwartz family continues to ask us to pray for God’s mercy and comfort as Jimmy goes through some difficult days.
George Eddie Lee is doing better this week than last week. Thank God for that improvement.

- “Changing Hearts” – http://odb.org/2016/10/11/changing-hearts/ – This is a lesson we all need to learn more about.

- “He Leadeth Me”
Operation Christmas Child “Shoebox” Folding – Yesterday morning, a number of people gathered to help prepare our shoeboxes for packing at the end of the month. Even though we are doing more boxes than ever before, the boxes were complete and neatly stacked by groups in two hours! That’s good, but the very best part is that there was such a sweet, loving spirit that could not be denied. We all felt so blessed to be a part of doing something special to help children around the world have some meaningful gifts, but mainly to have the opportunity to learn about Jesus and his love for them.
Opportunity – Thursday, at 10:30, we will be at Kentwood Manor. Join us in being a bright spot in their lives this week. Bubba Roberts and his guitar will be part of the group and such a joy to the residents.
Be an instrument of joy, peace, and contentment this week.
