“Seek first God’s kingdom and what God wants.
Then all your other needs will be met as well.”
~Matthew 6:33 (NCV)~
Covid-19 is still working in our area. Some people are on the “road to recovery”, some are still struggling, and unfortunately new cases are still appearing. Please do your part to help stop this awful virus.

Spring Creek Baptist Church will not meet in any way today. Please pray for our churches. Neither church has announced plans for next week. The revival at FBC, K has not been cancelled at this time.
Temple Holland Bryant
March 30, 1961 – August 14, 2020
Temple Holland Bryant, 59 of Amite, LA died on August 14, 2020 after a long illness. The loss of Temple’s unique charm and sense of humor will be missed by all that knew him. As a child, he could bring out laughs with his silly nature. After his first day of school, he announced that his teacher said he knew everything and was finished with school. He brought chuckles to anyone in need. His well articulated compliments showered friends and strangers alike. Temple left smiles in his wake. A young Temple joined the USCG and proudly served across the country over the years, he received many awards and gained more brothers and sisters. He later brought his talents to Jackson Hewitt. He reveled in being the Tax Man and loved his loyal clients. Along with military bearing and a strong intellect, he was remarkably creative, Temple baked, carved rocks, sculpted and painted, yet music was his favorite. He left us a library of You Tube videos where he shared his humor, heart and talent. Temple also believed in the power of community service, volunteering at various food banks and kitchens. His children and grandchildren were his pride of his life. He delighted in being near them and talking about them. Temple had a special relationship with his many cousins, nieces and nephews, finding specific connections with each. He is survived by his daughter, Samantha Moody; son, Dustin Kibbe; grandchildren, Carter, Christian and Maelee Moody and Gannon and Andrew Kibbe; mother, Shirley Bryant; brothers, John Bryant (Phyllis), Stephen Bryant (Tisha) and Matthew Bryant (Liz); sister, Elizabeth Bryant Towe; special cousins, Mary Jo Ricks and Kathy Wales; goddaughter, Krystal Alonzo. He was blessed to know and love his many nieces and nephews and a devoted extended family. He is preceded in death by his father, James H. Bryant. A Memorial Service will be at Pine Ridge Methodist Church on Saturday, August 22, 2020 at 2:00PM. Burial to follow in Pine Ridge Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, Temple would like you to tell a joke, do something kind, sing a song, and tell people you love them. Every day, Fair Winds and Following Seas. McKneely Funeral Home, Amite, in charge of arrangements. For an online guestbook, visit http://www.mckneelys.com.

Don’t forget to “drop-off” you items for Operation Christmas Child and the Louisiana Baptist Children’s Home at FBC, Kentwood this week.
During this time, it is important that each person steps up and becomes the church to those around them. How will you do this during the coming week?
