When the disciples heard this, they were greatly astonished and asked, “Who then can be saved?”  
Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”

Georgia Barnette Offering for Louisiana – Day 7

“Listening in Lake Charles”

Today is a good day to shop for some groceries for the children at the Louisiana Baptist Children’s Home. We are only asked to do this once a year. If you have not already done so or if you feel led to do so again, today is a good day to do that shopping. Leave your purchases just inside the west door of the fellowship hall. It is a good idea to pack your groceries in a box, especially is you purchase items by the case, or to double bag them.

Today’s prayer focus – Let’s pray for the safety and good health of all those who are working to repair or clean up after Hurricane Ida.

Today is a good day to invite someone to church with you in person or online.
