CHURCH-WIDE ANNOUNCEMENTS

Transition Team Update (November 23, 2018)

This Sunday, Pastor Joe Long’s message will be the “Four Attributes of an Effective Witness” – Acts 3:1-10.

An Encouraging Word: Psalm 100:4-5 – Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise; give thanks to Him and praise His name. For the LORD is good and His love endures forever; His faithfulness continues through all generations.

As we enter this time of Thanksgiving, please keep those in prayer that are going through the devastation of disasters on both coasts. In our plenty, may we pray for those who have lost everything including family.
