If then you have been raised with Christ,
seek the things that are above,
where Christ is,
seated at the right hand of God.
Set you minds on things that are above,
not on things that are on earth.
Rev. Bobby Eads’ mother, Glenda Eads, is critically ill. Please pray for the Eads family.
Miss Fay Shoemaker was feeling well enough to be in church yesterday. I’m thanking God for her progress.

The children in Bible Drill Class learned more about their Bibles last night and read & discussed the story of the creation. If you have a boy/girl or grandson/granddaughter, ask them to tell you about the creation. They can tell you the story and locate it in their Bible. They are so amazing to teach. Thank you for Betty Simpson and Susan Frazier for faithfully helping with the children of Sundays and Wednesdays.
Thank-you to those who brought calculators for Operation Christmas Child. We could use some more of the $1.00 calculators that can be found at the dollar stores. This week, we will be shopping for colorful bandanas. Some very pretty ones have already been turned in. Yesterday, three individuals gave me cash to shop for them. David and I will do that and give a copy of the receipts to the donors. Yesterday morning and afternoon, I was able to work on organizing the items given so far. Our grandson has given time periodically this summer. Last night, after helping before church, our daughter decided to work while I was teaching class to finish up some things. Later this week, I will be able to list items we are running short on.
I would love to pop out of the shoeboxes as they are opened in a couple of months. What joy they must experience as they receive the gifts and the opportunity to learn about Jesus!
