Special Adult Bible Class
Combined Adult Bible Classes meet in the auditorium this morning. John Clinton, son-in-law of Cary Miller, who works for the Sunset International Bible Institute (SIBI) will give a report on Phase 3 of the Solar- Powered Audio Players. In this phase, they will be used to spread the gospel to Spanish speaking populations.
The New Arrangement for Future Fellowship Meals —
Next Sunday, March 27th, the adult Bible classes will also meet in the auditorium. This way preparations for our Fellowship Meal can be made which will take place, for the first time, after our morning worship assembly. The elders decided that we will not have a devotional after the meal. This will give us more time to visit with each other without having to rush to another activity. After that, we will be dismissed for the day.
VISITING FOR THE MASTER
VISITATION PROGRAM Team #2 (leaders: Cary & Brenda Miller) will meet on Wednesday, March 23rd, at 6:30 pm in the library for their assignments.
Our Fellowship Meal—We will Enjoy It at Noon!
Next Sunday, March 27th, we will enjoy this good meal and fellowship right after our morning worship assembly. Hosts and hostesses will be: Myron & Janet Fietz, Doc & Sandy McDaniel and Sherry Sisco.
Beautiful Footnotes . . .
24 “But God has so composed the body, giving greater honor to the part that lacked it, 25 that there may be no division in the body, but that the members may have the same care for one another.” 1 Corinthians 12:24-25. What a rich blessing that God has given us the honor to help children like those at Cherokee Home. Bless them with your thoughts, prayers, and support as you are able. For the elders, Ken D
Note from Cherokee Home for Children
At our 3rd Annual Ladies Day, our staff and girls enjoyed a beautiful day of fellowship, singing, and sharing with 100 area friends. The ocean décor, along with the theme “Immeasurably More” from Ephesians 3:20, gave us just what we needed to come away more fully aware of God’s love for us. Our 4th Annual Ladies Day will happen the 3rd weekend of February 2017.
Track, tennis, and golf also started this week for our kids. In addition to new sports, they are beginning to prepare for the UIL Academic Meet. Our kids keep very busy schedules, which keep our house parents running. We ask for prayers for safety and satisfaction for our kids and sanity for our house parents.
Cherokee Home for Children had an extra 30 youth join us March 6th for our Area-wide Youth Connection last Sunday. We began with an intense game of Capture the Flag, sausage wraps for supper, and then ended with worship around the campfire. Even the young guys helped lead songs, read scripture they had chosen, and lead prayers. The whole event was a blessing to all of us on campus.
We are thanking God today that we were kept safe during what appeared from weather reports was going to be damaging weather. Our boys stayed in the storm rooms that were put in the new cottages, and our girls and remaining staff were in the basement of our pantry. The boys were excited not to have to leave their homes in the rain to go to shelter, and the girls look forward to this addition when they get their new cottages. Though our little community of Cherokee suffered some damage, no one was hurt, and our campus made it through without anything but a few tree limbs down. Thank you for your concern and prayers for us.
