Saturday

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

~Acts 1:8~

This tells us to share our faith with others around the world, not just our friends and neighbors.  That is our “mission”.
  • Mr. “Cete” did not get additional blood yesterday, but will get it Monday if the plans don’t change.  Please keep Mr. “Cete” and “Miss” Ruby in your prayers.
  • Read and  Write the Bible Today – “Abiding in Christ” – Ephesians 3:20
  • VBS, Vacation Bible School, signs are popping up all around.  Please take note of the dates and locations so the little ones in your world don’t miss out.  The children can’t make it to VBS if you don’t go out of your way to get them there!
  • Schools are ending for 2018-2019.  That means lots of energetic and fast moving boys and girls are riding bikes and playing ball each day.  Pay special attention when you drive!
  • Have a great Saturday.  Don’t get too hot!

Monday

“The LORD watches over all who love him.” 

~Psalm 145:20 NIV~

 

 

I remember watching the Monday morning march with Buckskin Bill from Baton Rouge.  David and I now have a Monday morning ride to Baton Rouge.  Today, we meet my sister, Julie, in Ponchatoula so she can do some driving for us.  God had certainly been watching over us as we have traveled many medical miles in the last couple of years.  Thankfully, He has been with us all the way on this journey.

 

 

Read and Write the Bible – I John 1: 5-6

 

 

 

Yesterday, the local churches honored their graduates yesterday.  Let’s join together to pray for and encourage each one of them.  Their lives are all changing as they face the next steps of their future.  Let’s pray they welcome God to travel these new steps with them.

But you cannot do anything without me”

Bro. Darryl Miller’s morning post:

Good morning. Today we will be recognizing our graduating seniors. Remember to pray for these young women and men as they continue their journey through life.
Also, we will have a Deacon ordination service for Ernest (Joe) Cutrer at 6pm. Ordination council at 4:30 this afternoon in the sanctuary.
As our graduates start to move out on their own, a lesson that I hope that they learn early is this- The little things in life make a big difference. A little of God’s blessings will have an impact of “goodness” in their lives that they can feel and others can see. Unfortunately, the same is true of a little sin. A small seemingly unnoticeable sin entering their lives will have a negative impact that they can feel and others can see. In order to truly be blessed we have to keep all sin at a distance.
Join us at FBC Kentwood this morning for Sunday School at 9:15 followed by Worship at 10:30. Our scripture passage will be Numbers 6:22-27. We will go Facebook Live at 10:30 for those that can’t be here in person.

 

 

I hope you will be in church somewhere this morning, but if you can’t, find a good pastor on television, computer, or i-phone.

Thursday

If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to deliver us from it, and he will deliver us from Your Majesty’s hand.  

But even if he does not, we want you to know, Your Majesty, that we will not serve your gods or worship the image of gold you have set up.”

Daniel 3:17-18

Thanks go the person who sent a box of beads for use in the Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes.  Also, thanks to those of you who have contributed plastic Easter eggs for the shoeboxes.  Each and every item will go in shoeboxes in the fall.  We collect now and pack later.  Don’t forget to take the time to check out the items in the tote on the organ.  These items represent some of the items we will use this year.  You can also contribute by giving to the Operation Christmas Child Fund at church.  Marking you envelope “OCC” or “Shoeboxes” is all you have to do.

 

 

 

The weather has been beautiful.  We have enjoyed sitting on the patio.  Pray for everyone to be able to get out or to look out and enjoy God’s creation.

 

 

 

Please continue to pray for those who have needs.  They might be spiritual, physical, emotional, etc.
