“Now he who plants and he who waters are one,
and each one will receive his own reward
according to his own labor.
For we are God’s fellow workers.”
~1 Corinthians 3:8-9a, NKJV~
Today, I’m asking for prayer for Theresa Flores’ daughter, Claire. She is hospitalized and will have her third surgery Wednesday. This one will remove both her kidneys in preparation for a transplant. Your prayers are so important.
Mr. David Vining is home. Please continue to pray for this fine man.
Week of Prayer for the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering, Day 3
The stamped Christmas cards for inmates in the parish jail were delivered yesterday. A total of 405 were delivered with 180 from FBC, Kentwood. Thanks to all who supported this.
Sunday, December 7th is our day to contribute frozen food for two families. That gives you a few days to cook/freeze food for this worthy project. One family needs food for a midday meal and the other fresh/frozen fruits and vegetables or home cooked foods. It’s an easy project for us, but so helpful to those who receive it.

“Ten Common Worship Distractions” by Thomas Rainer
- I don’t know the situation in the churches of all the readers of TPL, but I suspect at least one of these issues needs to be addressed in any church. We should all want to improve our church for ourselves and for our guests.

The love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness. ~1 Timothy 6:10~
If you have a facebook page and would like to be included in a group, Ladies of Two Rivers Baptist Association, please let me know. It has proven to be a good means of communication in our church communities. (Go to the word “Contact” above the day of the week at the beginning of any post. Your message will come directly to me.)
Some people use this month to intensionally do special kindnesses for others. They select a recepiant, prepare a gift (often a treat from the kitchen), write a sweet note, and make the delivery wearing a big smile. If you choose to do this this month or any day of the year, I’m sure you will be the one with the greater blessing each day.
Jesus is the one and only reason for this season of the year!
