Remember the wonders he has done,

his miracles,

and the judgments he pronounced.

Mrs. Estelle Raborn is home again from North Oaks.  Please be in prayer for her and Mr. Bobby each day.

Reading the Bible – Ecc. 5-8 & Psalm 9

 

Thanks to those who brought red beans and rice.  They have been delivered to The Hope Center in Roseland and to God’s Storehouse in Amite.  Thank-you for helping meet emergency food needs by local families.

 

There will be a number of Vacation Bible Schools this week.  If you are on Facebook, you can check my posts of VBS opportunities in different area churches or you can check the posts of various churches to see when each one is having VBS this year.

 

It’s time to begin thinking of the 350 shoeboxes we will be packing at the end of October.  Please keep your eyes open for hairbrushes, bath soap, calculators, jump ropes, bandanas, small cars and trucks, and small dolls.  You may bring your items to me or to my classroom next to the choir room.  We will need your assistance each month for the next five months.  Let’s get busy and begin accumulating the items we will need for 350 shoeboxes.  Operation Christmas Child is part of Samaritan’s Purse which is under the leadership of Rev. Franklin Graham.  Let’s do our part in accumulating and packing items.  In November, our church will again be a collection site for area churches, clubs, and individuals.  We have ladies available to shop for you if you want to help financially.  I will give you another list of items in about six weeks.

 

There will be no Third Thursday meeting this week or in the next two months.  We will resume the Third Thursday of September.  I will be happy to share my piano for some sweet hymn singing by everyone.

 

Have a wonderful Monday.  Remember, to love your neighbor as yourself today.

Wednesday

Thanks for understanding I was controlled by a cough for the last two days.  Thankfully, I’m better now.

 

But from everlasting to everlasting

the LORD’s love is with those who fear him,

and his righteousness with their children’s children—

~Psalm 103:17~

 

Good News!  Bettye Fussell’s blood count was good enough for her to be able to get her fifth treatment this week.  Pray for her as she moves forward in beating the cancer!

The Lord’s Church has officially changed its name after much consideration and prayer. It is now Taylor Creek Baptist Church.  Nothing concerning their leadership or focus has changed, only the name.  If you have any questions, please contact Rev. Don Meadows.

The Hope Center in Roseland is updating paperwork for those who receive food baskets each month.  If you know of anyone who needs to update their information, please remind them to do so as soon as possible.

and from the hand of Saul.

He said: I love you, LORD, my strength.

The LORD is my rock,

my fortress and my deliverer;

my God is my rock,

in whom I take refuge,

my shield and the horn of my salvation,

my stronghold.
