May 12 – Job 33: 4

Sharing an invitation from Rachel Buckley (and FBC, Kentwood);

I would like to invite anyone who is currently raising children (of all ages) to come and visit us at Kentwood First Baptist at 5pm in the fellowship hall this Sunday evening for a great time of support, encouragement and guidance in how to raise your children with godly values in a world that’s trying so hard to influence them towards every direction but to God. Our goal is just that….SUPPORT!!! It’s going to be a great time. Men and women. Young and older. You may be the parents or the grandparents helping to fill the role as guardian. It’s for all. We will only be meeting once a month at 5:00 before our evening church services. Many churches no longer have evening services so if this is a situation any of you find yourselves in…. Come take advantage of the great things God is gonna do. Special thanks to Katie Lynn Brabham for being obedient to Gods voice and getting us going. Scripture says that Iron sharpens Iron and I firmly believe that we as Christians should take every opportunity we can to help sharpen one another to be ready to help our children and each other walk upright and without fear.

If there are any questions please contact myself, Katie Brabham, Brandy Cutrer or Wendell Rhodus. I sure hope to see y’all there.
