New Classes Starting Next Sunday Morning
New adult Bible classes will start next Sunday morning, August 9th, at 10 o’clock. The topic will be, “The Beatitudes”, taught by Cary Miller in the fellowship room and Joe Winnett in the auditorium.
This topic is a challenge to a closer walk with Jesus, finding in Him an increasingly greater happiness. His ethical principles, when applied, will make our lives spiritually rich, happy and meaningful. If you have not attended Sunday morning Bible study previously, this is a good time to get started!
VISITING FOR THE MASTER
VISITATION PROGRAM Team #1 (leaders: Teri & Joe Winnett) will meet on Wednesday, August 5th, at 6:30 pm in the library for their assignments.
It is Hot Enough for It: Our Yearly Ice-Cream Fellowship!
On Sunday, August 9th, after our evening worship assembly, we will have our yearly ice-cream fellowship. As always, we enjoy both, the home-made ice-cream version, or the delicious store-bought kind. All kinds of toppings are welcome, so are cookies and cakes, or even finger foods. Make your plans for this upcoming evening and enjoy this “cool” fellowship!
We have been blessed in our partnership in the spreading of the Gospel with the Emperado family in the Philippines. What follows is part of a recent report. Continue to remember them as they work tirelessly in God’s service. For the elders, Ken D.
Dear Family and Friends,
Howdy! We hope this newsletter finds all of you happy and well.
We went to Naval and Leyte to visit the church started from the typhoon relief work in Naval, where we have had over 100 baptisms, and built over 50 homes with help from so many in the church in Texas and Oklahoma.
While I was in Naval, visiting the church there, my brother Orwen was handling the MOSES class in Negros. It was held at a young church we work with, in a place called Canabok, up in the mountains. After the class and church was over, the group headed to our place to have a special fellowship and 10 baptisms.
We also received amazing news from North Garland church of Christ, in Enid, Oklahoma, that someone there had donated funds for us to be able to purchase a new vehicle to replace our old dump truck that was out of commission from all the heavy loads carried during the typhoon relief work last year. We have been limping along the last three months without it and it has been difficult. Carrying people, materials, pigs, caskets, wed ding parties, sand, rocks, bamboos, etc…it is a daily occurrence for us. Not having the dump truck has limited us with what we could do to help those who needed help. Hopefully we will have the vehicle in time to help with all the summer projects, classes, and camps.
We are so blessed with so many opportunities to serve and encourage others to become involved. We are so thankful for the support team we have back home, we are blessed with great churches and families who partner with us in sharing the good news here in the Philippines. We love you all! In Him, Becky, Richard, and kids
