Sunday, the Lord’s Day

I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life.  

This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.

1 John 5:13-14

 

 

Thanks to all who came to the fellowship hall and worked to complete more projects for Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes.  That was our last Saturday workday for 2018.

 

 

 

Mr. Jimmy Tolar has improved.   He is alert and talking,  Please keep him in your prayers.

 

 

Continue to pray for all the victims of displacement and/or damage from “Florence”.

 

 

 

Read the Bible

  • Isaiah 51
  • Song of Solomon 7:6-13
  • James 2

 

 

Don’t forget the Week of Prayer for the Georgia Barnett Offering for work in Louisiana.

Day 1: Philadelphia Baptist, Horseshoe

ASK God to continue his great work at Philadelphia at Horseshoe Drive.

ASK God to use the funds given through the Georgia Barnette State Missions Offering to revitalize other churches that are struggling across our state.

PRAY for Clay Fuqua, campus pastor of Philadelphia Church at Horseshoe Drive.

[Please note: On Day 1 of the Prayer Guide we incorrectly referenced Elijah when it should be Ezekiel. We have corrected this here and on the downloadable versions. We apologize to you (and both prophets) for this error.]

“Can these dry bones live?” This was the question God asked Ezekiel over 2,500 years ago. Ezekiel replied, “Sovereign Lord, only you know.” God has a passionate desire to breathe life into places where His Spirit moved mightily in past years.

Imagine a church so packed in the ‘70s that, in order to accommodate the crowds, chairs had to be placed in the aisles. This was Horseshoe Drive Baptist Church in the ‘70s. This church knew how to think big.

This didn’t last though. As the years went by, Horseshoe experienced a steady decline. But a small group of members, grieved by the state of their church, surrendered to do whatever it would take to see God breathe life into a once thriving faith community.

With the leadership of Philadelphia Baptist Church in Deville and some funds provided by the Georgia Barnette State Missions Offering, Horseshoe Drive is once again growing and impacting their community. New visitors are showing up at their doors and the waters of the baptistry are stirring.

These faithful members asked, “Can these dry bones live again?” God answered with a resounding, “YES.” What does God wa

nt to resurrect in your life and church? Remember, it’s not over when God is in it.

What is God doing in your heart to bring dead things to life?

 

 

 

Have a great Lord’s Day!
