David also said to Solomon his son,

“Be strong and courageous, and do the work.

Do not be afraid or discouraged,

for the LORD God, my God, is with you.

He will not fail you or forsake you until all the work

for the service of the temple of the LORD is finished.


Phillip Strickland‘s mom reported they are pleased with the surgery results.  Phillip is progressing according to expectations.  Please keep praying for Phillip and the rest of his family.

Susan Rimes has been fitted with a back brace and is adjusting to wearing it. This plan replaces the idea of having some surgery.  Pray for her as she continues to make this change.

Read the Bible – Isaiah 13-17 & Psalm 112



“Feed the hungry, and help those in trouble.

Then your light will shine out from the darkness,

and the darkness around you will be as bright as noon.

The Lord will guide you continually,

giving you water when you are dry and restoring your strength.

You will be like a well-watered garden, like an ever-flowing spring.”

~Isaiah 58:10-11 NLT, 2nd ed.~

“Serve the Lord with Gladness”


Friday Morning Bible Study – Ezekiel 6


Don’t forget to bring red beans and rice for our local mission project.  You can put them by the bin for Bibles at the church.


I always say that the Third Thursday Gathering is my favorite event of every month.  Last night was no different.  In fact, it was so good I told David it ranked as one of the very best ones yet.  We are so thankful that others come here to help make this happen.  We couldn’t do this without you.  We had a people from eight different churches including one person who was new to our gathering and one who hadn’t been here in a while.  Thank-you to everyone who blesses us by coming.
