Philip “Steve” Steven McMichael

April 24, 1982 – May 13, 2018
Steve, age 36, passed away on Sunday, May 13, 2018. He was a proud native of Hillsdale, LA and a resident of Amite, LA, who was passionate about being a Heavy Equipment Operator. Steve was a member of many Jeep Clubs and Cummins Clubs. Steve had a passion for anything that ran on diesel; whether it was his four wheel drives or heavy equipment, spending quality time with his wife cooking crawfish or anything outside was where he was often found. He had a love for the outdoors and enjoyed hunting and fishing. Steve’s true love was his family and always put them first in everything he did. He would help anyone in need, always shared his huge heart with anyone around and was never seen without his beautiful smile, he never left without a big hug and always said he loved you before leaving. Steve was an incredible husband and father, loving brother and son, and remarkable person who will be deeply missed.

Sunday Afternoon

Bobby Simpson was admitted to North Oaks for tests.  He’s in room 5414.  Please add Bobby, Betty, and the other family members to your prayer list.

 

 

Bennett Blake Brabhan was born to Jeb and Katie Brabham today.  He weighed 9 pounds 8 ounces and measured 22 inches long.  I’m sure he will be as precious as his big brother, Elliott.

Sunday

“I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from his love.

Death can’t, and life can’t.

The angels won’t, and all the powers of hell itself cannot keep God’s love away.

Our fears for today, our worries about tomorrow, or where we are — high above the sky, or in the deepest ocean — nothing will ever be able to separate us from the love of God demonstrated by our Lord Jesus Christ when he died for us” 

~Romans 8:38-39 TLB

 

I was asked to add the name of Carolyn Raborn.  She broke her leg and is in North Oaks.  She will be going to rehab when the proper paperwork is approved.

 

Baby Luke who was born the day following a traffic accident in slowly improving.  He’s up to 3.2 pounds.  Keep praying for Baby Luke and for his family.

 

Many people in our area are still without electricity following the snow that fell Friday.  If you know of someone whose home does not have electricity, do your best to help them in any way.  If you can’t help them, find someone who can.

Week of Prayer for Lottie Moon Offering for international missions – Day 8 – “Why Prayer Matters” – https://www.imb.org/day-8/

 

 

I think the roads are clean so everyone can get to church today.  If your church is not able to have services due to a lack of heat, I know you will be a welcome guest in another church. We all have a lot to be thankful for today.  Come celebrate the birth of the Savior in His house.  Many churches will celebrate for several weeks.

Work is progressing on the Two Rivers Associational Annual Lottie Moon Tea.  Let me invite all ladies (3-103 years old) to come to First Baptist Church, Kentwood at 2 P.M.  Sunday. In additional to some tea and other treats, you’ll hear a missionary who has returned to the states and witness the musical talents of the children and youth of our local churches.  The ladies will be decorating their tables Saturday morning.  I know they will be beautiful!  If this is your first holiday event, it will put you in a Christ centered focus for the Christmas season.  If you miss it, there will be no second chance.  I’m looking forward to seeing you Sunday at 2 P.M.  We are thankful to have our children and youth help with serving of food, as well as singing.
The children of FBC, Kentwood will have missions tonight and work in a little last-minute practice time for the tea.  We begin in the sanctuary at 6 P.M.
The ladies will have their regular Bible study, of Ezekiel, Friday morning at 10 A.M.  The prophesy is interesting.  We are comparing those days to the present days and praying for our nation and world to turn back to Jesus.
The “shoeboxes” we packed are getting the Christian literature that will introduce them to Jesus added this week and boxes divided up for their final destinations as well as packaging for overseas shipping.  The boxes might travel by plane, ship, boat, wagon, bus, car, truck. camel, horse, on even be carried in on the backs of people.  All opened boxes will bring joy and an introduction to Jesus!
Sunday, we will begin our Week of Prayer for the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering.  We received slightly more than our goal for the Georgia Barnett Offering for North American missions.  I look forward to exceeding this goal too!  We will again have our Missions March as introduced to us by Dr. Tom Higginbothan, a former IMB missionary who served as interim pastor at FBC, Kentwood a few years ago.
Sunday is the deadline for bringing in STAMPED Christmas cards for the prisoners at the parish jail.  David and I will personally deliver the cards to the jail next week.  No number of cards is too large or too small!  We’ll pray each one impacts a family with the true Christmas message this holiday season.
It’s a great week!  Follow Jesus in the Christmas season this year!  Merry Christmas!
