CHURCH-WIDE ANNOUNCEMENTS

Transition Team Update

We continue to give God all the Glory, Praise and Honor for the congregation’s faithful response to financially support the purchase of the new chiller. Thank you for answering His call.

An Encouraging Word: One of our Deacons, Wilbur Martin, shared that after Pastor Long’s sermon on Hell, he prayed that God would place someone in his path to share the gospel with. The following Tuesday, God provided Wilbur with an opportunity to share his faith with a man on the bus. Wilbur found out that the man was a new believer and was facing many life challenges. Even with all the man was going through, he was joyful. The man wasn’t looking for a handout, he just wanted Wilbur to pray for him. Wilbur was able to encourage the man and was encouraged by him in return. Wilbur shared that God may allow us to bless others, but be ready, we will be blessed as well.
