Third Thursday Meeting – Tonight at our cabin at 6:30.  Everyone is invited.

Prayer Meeting (last night) – Thanks to James Rimes for leading.  The lesson on obedience was presented well, even if all the notes were in the other maroon Bible.  We are blessed with Godly men who are willing to share at any given opportunity.

Continue to be obedient to God and make a difference in lives “wherever you are planted”.
