Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying,

“Whom shall I send?

And who will go for us?”

And I said,

“Here am I. Send me!”

Operation Christmas Child – Recent donations include loose leaf paper, composition books, copy paper, and glue sticks. While organizing the school supplies yesterday, I realized we are now running short on small pencil sharpeners.

Today’s Prayer Focus

Somewhere in most families there are family members who do not know Jesus as their Savior. Today, let’s pray for them to ask Jesus to come into their hearts.

Online services from FBC, Kentwood

Despite the good weather here last night the online prayer meeting service did not come in properly. I can’t explain this, but do know the services are still available and seem to be coming through properly this morning. If you have difficulty watching at times, just try again later. The time of your viewing is not limited to live services.

Thanks for reading and praying today.
