You were taught,

with regard to your former way of life,

to put off your old self,

which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; 

to be made new in the attitude of your minds; 

and to put on the new self,

created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.

~Ephesians 4:22-24~

John and Kirstin Lee Antoon proudly announced the birth of their son last week. Beckham Richie Antoon was born January 4, 2021 at 1:21 P.M. weighing in at 7 pounds, 6 ounces and measuring 19.6 inches long. His three sisters are enjoying having their brother at home.

Mrs. Mildred Birch asks for prayers for her daughter and son-in-law, RHONDA AND ALLEN MCGEHEE, who have covid. She is home, but he is hospitalized. “Miss” Mildred lost a good friend, her brother, and now has this concern. Pray for her as you pray for her family.

As you pray for the McGehees, please also pray for all the others who are sick with covid. Several of our friends seem to be “holding their own” at this time.

The people whose home burned last week have received clothing from some of you. Thank-you for your quick responses. More clothing appropriate for the cold weather would also be helpful. Donations can be dropped off at Larry Miller’s home. He will deliver to the family.

Operation Christmas Child, 2021 is beginning at FBC, Kentwood! Be thinking about how you will donate items, money, or time/talents. All are appreciated and will benefit poor children in the form of a “shoebox” filled with school supplies, hygiene items, fun toys, and a book & opportunity to “meet” Jesus! The shoeboxes will travel and “speak” to the children in places where we will never have the opportunity to visit or “share Jesus”.
