CHANGE OF CONTACT INFORMATION

Pat Devore has dropped her landline and now uses her cell phone only. That number is available from the church office.

FOR YOUR INFORMATION

Due to the diminished images by our auditorium projector and its anticipated replacement within a few weeks, we will be conducting our song services without the projector for the next several weeks. Please use the songbooks and follow the song leader as we worship together. Thanks for your help and understanding.

FELLOWSHIP MEAL

Our Fellowship Meal today after morning worship. Hosts and hostesses are: Ray & Sue Baggett, Allen & Jalyn Smith, Kathy Patterson and Don & Paula Welch.

UVALDE RELIEF

We are still collecting money for the Getty Street Church of Christ in Uvalde to use in relieve work concerning the recent mass shooting tragedy. If you would like to participate in this collection, please, put a notation on your check for “UVALDE” or cash can be handed to the elders with your instructions. We will collect funds through the end of this month and then send it on to Uvalde.

BEAUTIFUL FOOTPRINTS

For many years, we have worked with Worldwide Spanish Literature Ministry (WWSLM) in spreading God’s wonderful message of Jesus, our Savior, in the Spanish language. This message was sent to hope we will be encouraged to continue to help provide the only chance some people will have at the Gospel. For the elders, Ken D

Recently, I received a humble phone call from an elderly sister asking to buy some hymnals for a church in Mexico. She was very excited that we had them in stock, but more excited because the hymnals were going to help a church in Mexico. At the beginning of our conversation, she had no idea of all that we do here at the ministry. So I began to explain everything to her and boy, did I hear her reaction through the phone. Her comment was Wow. As we begin to get deeper in the conversation, you could tell the sadness in her voice when we had begun to talk about evangelism. She said that before COVID, she would pass out tracks and spread the word to as many people as she could. But COVID hit her and she has not been the same since. She was saddened because she cannot go door knocking anymore due to that, she cannot sustain standing and walking as she used to. She felt that she was not doing her part in serving the Lord as she was supposed to. Boy, was she in for a surprise. I pointed out to her that what she was saying was not correct. I explained to her that sending the hymnals and donating them to the church that needs them is evangelical. So I told her “This is what we are going to do. Not only are you going to receive hymnals you will receive other materials as well. Tracks, books and children’s materials. This will help the congregation grow and also help on Sunday with the children Bible classes as well. This is another way you are evangelizing.” With excitement in her voice, she said, “I never thought of it that way. Thank you for lifting me back up.”
