“Give yourselves completely to God,

for you were dead, but now you have new life.

So use your whole body as an instrument

to do what is right for the glory of God.”

 ~Romans 6:13b NLT~



Please pray for Phillip Strickland.  He has had better weeks.  Please pray for his family as you pray for him.


Tedd and Kayla Titus’ baby will need some surgeries.  Please pray for doctors as they make timing decisions and for the family as they have to visit the baby at the hospital and not have him at home.


Yesterday, Mrs. Ruby Dillon had her best day since the hospital stays.  Thank God for good progress for her.  Please continue to pray for Mr. “Cete”.


Hurricane Harvey seems to be headed for Texas.  Pray for those in its path.  In our area, it now seems like we will have much rain.

The Friday morning Bible study group will not meet this week, but will meet next Friday.

Prayer meeting for the upcoming revival will begin Sunday evening.  Contact the church office for dates, locations, and times.  The children will still meet at the church for their Bible Drill class.


The value of this day will best be measured by what you do for others, not what others do for you!
