UPCOMING GUEST SPEAKER
Next Sunday, October 17th, Andy Baker from World Christian Broadcasting will be our guest speaker, giving a report during Bible class and preach at the worship hour. WCB is based in Franklin, Tennessee where Andy is the Chief Executive Officer. We are looking forward to all that he will share with us.
EATING OUT TOGETHER
The group that enjoys eating out together will meet on Thursday, October 14th at the “Highlander” in Burnett. Time: 5 PM. There is a sign-up sheet on the table in the back of the auditorium.
FOR EVERYTHING THERE IS A SEASON, A TIME FOR EVERY PURPOSE (Eccl. 3:1)
The elders believe the time has come for fellowship, that is, a fellowship meal. Conditions permitting, we intend to resume our monthly fellowship meals after the morning assembly on the last Sunday of each month. We realize that there may be some who are not comfortable yet with the idea of gathering for a meal, but for those who feel ready to take this next step toward what was “normal” 18 months ago, we intend to have our first fellowship meal of 2021 on Sunday, October 31st. We invite everyone to get out their cookbooks and bring something delicious to share after we have worshipped our Lord together on the 31st of October! If all goes well, we will also have our annual “Holiday” fellowship meal on Sunday, December 5th, after morning worship (this typically takes the place of the November and December fellowship meals). Please mark these dates on your calendars and pray for the success of these plans. We hope to see you there!

It is always time to rejoice and honor God when souls are added to His kingdom. Let us offer prayers of thanksgiving and of encouragement to these new brethren that our fellow workers in Nigeria are reporting on below. May God be praised for His marvelous grace and mercy. For the elders, Ken D
HARVEST OF SOULS TODAY (September 26th) A team of preachers stormed Wula, eastern Boki, in Cross River state, 9km to the Cameroon Republic, and established a congregation there last year. For two days now, we repeated the exercise and the Lord blessed us with 6 souls. We left this morning with a prayer….LORD LEAD US TO READY SOULS FOR THE GOSPEL AND DIRECT THOSE WHO NEED THE GOSPEL TO US. God answered our prayers. To God be the glory. Excited to be busy in the vineyard of the Lord. Historically, the church in Wula started in my office with the conversion of my Head of Department three and half years ago. His conversion has brought his wife, daughter, cousin, mother, and now a congregation in his village. The Lord is ready to give us victory if and only if we will work. Ours is to preach and it is His duty to convert.
Keep us in your prayers.
