Wednesday

If you declare with your mouth,

“Jesus is Lord,”

and believe in your heart

that God raised him from the dead,

you will be saved.

For it is with your heart

that you believe and are justified,

and it is with your mouth

that you profess your faith

and are saved.

~Romans 10:9-10~

Operation Christmas Child – What a blessing to go into a store to purchase items for OCC shoeboxes and see a Sunday School member shopping for items for shoeboxes, to have messages about what someone has purchased, but will not be able to turn in until next week, or to walk into the church and find bags of items someone dropped off for us. This is a major project that takes many hands and many hearts.  I’m so thankful for all those who participate and do so over and over to help collect the many items we will need.

Operation Christmas Child – Last night, someone asked me to shop for them, as I have done before.  If you would rather not do the shopping, I will be glad to do that for you.  I will also show you what I purchased and give you the receipt.

This week we are shopping for pencils and pens. The following week we will be purchasing the $1.00 calculators.  They are on sale now at some stores.   If you find them, you may want to make your purchase now.

 

Be a blessing to others today.

Read the Bible – Daniel 10-12 and Psalm 58

 

Thank-you to all who brought highlighters for Operation Christmas Child.  We will be collecting small glue sticks next Sunday.  I added a box under the stairwell steps for those who find it inconvenient to come to my classroom, but delivery to my classroom before Sunday School will still be an option.  I know we will have sufficient notebooks, but will check on other items and post their status periodically.  Each item you bring is greatly appreciated and will make some child very thankful.  Remember, the shoeboxes are an opportunity to share Jesus with the children.  Also, remember we will be collecting donations to help pay the shipping for the boxes.  The packing party will be the first Saturday of November.  Plan to be there to share the joy and excitement.

 

Friday morning Bible study will focus on Ezekiel 19 this week.

 

Start this week off right by checking on someone.  Both of you will be blessed!  It was certainly a sweet time when we share all the many names of those who are sick last night.  I trust each of you will make some visits….
