For we did not follow cleverly devised stories when we told you about the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ in power, but we were eyewitnesses of his majesty.

Saturday night, Two Rivers will hold a Harvest Revival meeting at Greenlaw Baptist Church at 6:30 P.M.


The Third Thursday Gathering at the Cabin last night was special in several ways.  We had our customary great meal, a first-time guest who came with Gibby and Katera McMillan, a 90 year old Mr. Harlon Toney making my newly tuned piano talk, talented James Rimes sharing about his songs before he sang each one, guests from six churches, and a devotional led by David that tied the whole night together.  It was another fantastic night in the cabin!  We’ll meet again next month.


Friday morning Bible study meets at 10 this morning in the FBC fellowship hall.


Read the Bible – Romans 3-4, Psalm 134, and video “Atonement” found at

Jake Fowler broke his right thumb in the Sumner football game.  He required surgery, which was yesterday morning in Covington.  I called Wendy yesterday and found her mom was there with Jake as he rested.  The break was worse than everyone first thought.

Dominic Terrese, a classmate from Amite High is hospitalized following a hear attack.  As you pray for him, please also pray for his wife, Jane, and other family members.  Dominic and Jane live in Loranger.

George Cutrer had a post surgery check-up.  All seems to be going well.  Thank God for George’s good report.

Donna Fay Miller was able to return home late yesterday afternoon.  I’m sure she is so thankful to have her procedure done and be back at home.  Thank you for praying for her.
