“God has done it all!

He sent Christ to make peace between himself and us, and he has given us the work of making peace between himself and others.

What we mean is that God was in Christ, offering peace and forgiveness to the people of this world.

And he has given us the work of sharing his message about peace.

We were sent to speak for Christ, and God is begging you to listen to our message.

We speak for Christ and sincerely ask you to make peace with God.” 

~2 Corinthians 5:18-20 CEV~

Meg Stephens asked me to share some information.  On Saturday, March 24, beginning at 8:30 A.M., the women’s ministry of Spring Creek Baptist Church will have a library/missions day.  Their librarian, Janet Pike, will share the book “Who is My Neighbor”. Then, the ladies will work on several mission projects.  There will be a light lunch and refreshments.  They plan to end at 11:30, but go when you can and stay as long as you want to stay.



Have a wonderful day.  Be “on mission” where you are today!

16 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 

17so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 

18may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 

19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. 

20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 

21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.

~Ephesians 3:16-21~

Tony Bennett is doing very well following five by-passes yesterday.  His heart quickly began working much better than pre-surgery.  Thanking God!

Pray for Wayne Landley as he has preparatory work for treatment of his cancer.  As you pray for him, pray for Glenda, his primary caregiver.

Yesterday was a great day!  The associational WMU meeting at FBC, Greensburg was a time to inspire each other as we learned about the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering.  That was followed by the Two Rivers annual meeting at Spring Creek last night.  I was blessed to have been in each meeting.



Three days and counting – The new Bible study of Romans will begin Friday morning in the fellowship hall of FBC, Kentwood.  The Bible will be our textbook with no other required reading.  You do not have to belong to FBC, Kentwood to attend.  Our first meeting will be an introductory meeting to Romans, so feel free to read the introduction to Romans that can be found in most Bibles.  Work as much or as little as you feel led to do each week.  In other words, it’s easy to participate at the level of involvement you choose.  No additions books are required.  No cost involved.  Contact me if you have questions.  No questions, just show up Thursday at 10:00 A.M.




May your light shine for Jesus today!
