Compass – 4/28/19


This Week’s Sermon

This Sunday Joe Long will be speaking on – How Christians Love – (1 Corinthians 8:13).

Transition Team Update

Encouraging Words: This week’s encouraging word is a reflection on this past Sunday’s Easter service. The true love of our Risen Savior was clearly evident in the congregational fellowship. The music and worship was incredible, especially when the children blessed the congregation with their singing. Pastor Long’s message magnified God and glorified His son. This was an amazing Easter service. Thanks to everyone who God used to make this a blessed service.

We only have a couple more weeks to get your offerings in for Annie Armstrong. These monies are needed to support our Southern Baptist missionaries in North America.

The Ministerial Team would like to thank everyone who submitted nominations for the Pastoral Search Committee. Please keep this team in prayer as they start the process of assembling the group God has called.

Join us TODAY (April 28) for a reception honoring Joe Long in the Fellowship Mall immediately following the service.
