October 16 – Psalm 66: 16-20

This is the Lord’s Day.

Attend church in person if possible. If not, watch a good Christian service on TV or your phone. I recommend a local service.

Tonight is Fall Fest at FBC, Kentwood.

Bring your children/grandchildren to celebrate the season in a safe environment.

Looking forward to Sunday School and worship this morning. I hope you are too.
