4 But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, 

5 he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, 

6 whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior, 

7 so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life.

~Titus 3:4-7~

Bro. Darry’s. message last night was from Titus 1:1-9.

There’s a Critical Need for Volunteers in Louisiana

Dear Friends,
Will you help meet a need in Louisiana?

Over 700 homeowners in Louisiana are still waiting for help to clean up their damaged houses and properties after Hurricane Ida slammed into the state in late August. Will you prayerfully consider volunteering with us to help these families begin to recover?

Samaritan’s Purse quickly deployed to three areas—Houma, Greater New Orleans, and Northshore Area—after Ida roared ashore. With an army of volunteers, we have assisted over 1,300 families. But the work is far from over. We need more men and women willing to be the hands and feet of Christ.

If you would like to serve in Jesus’ Name and help the hurting know that God loves them and hasn’t forgotten them, please go to to sign up.

Maybe you could bring a group from your family or church. The gift of your time will make such a difference to a family who has been waiting for help.


Franklin Graham
President, Samaritan’s Purse

Lottie Moon Christmas Offering

When did Lottie Moon Christmas Offering begin?

1888 – 133 Years Ago!

Lottie Moon’s constant stream of letters and articles appealing for more recruits and financial support prompted Southern Baptist women to initiate an annual Christmas offering for foreign missions in 1888 — an offering later named for Moon.

Thanks for reading and praying today.
