Bro. Darryl preached a message from Acts last night that was very thought provoking. You can view it on FBC, Kentwood on Facebook. That is one great bonus from having both live and online services. We were unable to be in Sunday’s service, but watched it yesterday. You never have to miss a service.

Today’s prayer focus

Today, let’s pray for students with more free time than planned/organized time this summer. Pray they will use their time wisely so they are safe.

Shoebox workday – Saturday at 9:00 in the fellowship hall of FBC, Kentwood. Everyone is invited. There will be a job for everyone. Come join us.

Thank-you for reading and praying today.
