Our regular fifth Sunday night singing to benefit Free Will Baptist Family Ministries will be Sunday evening, August 30. We will be welcoming the group Heavenly Reflections. Invite a friend to join you!
The Bays Mountain "walk about" which had been scheduled for this past Tuesday evening had to be postponed a second time because of rain and storms. We still plan to do this trip in the near future but it will not be scheduled on the calendar. Please listen to the announcements at church; we will go one evening when the short-term weather forecast is favorable.
Details have been set for the Band of Brothers fellowship and cookout event on Saturday, August 29. Ed Phillips has invited the men to enjoy his great picnic site on his Ford Town Road farm. Please meet there at 6:00 p.m. Hamburgers will be provided, but we need everyone to sign up this week for the other items needed as well as desserts. The sign-up sheet is on the table in the lobby.
The sermons from the past two Sundays are now available on the Sermons 2015 page. The message on August 9 was about "When Your Heart Is Broken" and should be comforting to anyone who is going through a tough time. Please share with anyone you know who may need to hear this.
The sermon on August 16 is entitled "Sufficient Grace" and is a good message for both Christians and non-Christians alike. Please especially share this with your unsaved friends and loved ones.
Our Band of Brothers fellowship is coming up on the last Saturday of this month, August 29. We have once again been invited to enjoy Ed Phillip's wonderful spot down by the creek for an evening around the fire and a cookout. More details will be provided later.
The Bays Mountain Walk-About scheduled for last month was postponed due to rain. It is now planned for Tuesday, 8/18. Any of our church family who would like to join us is invited to meet at Bays Mountain at 6:00 p.m. Bring a picnic for your family if you like, or you can just come join us for a little casual fellowship. You can sit in the shade on a park bench and chat, stroll through the beautiful park and enjoy the animals, or whatever you feel like doing. It is just a time to get together and enjoy one another and God's awesome creation.
The men's "shoot out" event, which was rained out in June, has been rescheduled for Saturday, 8/15. It will be held at Pastor Bob's "hunting property" in Virginia, beginning at 4:00 p.m. Bring your favorite drink to stick in the cooler and also a roll-up chair. The pastor will be providing something to eat when the "shoot out" is finished. Be sure to pick up a flyer at church with details about the event and directions to the property. These will be available in the lobby after church on Sunday, 8/9.
On Sunday evening, 8/9, Pastor Bob will begin a sermon series entitled "Money Matters." This will be the beginning of a practical set of messages dealing with a broad range of subjects relating to what the Bible teaches about the stewardship of what God has blessed us with. Finances are a critical part of our lives, and these messages will attempt to bring a Biblical perspective to key areas relating to our finances. Please note this will not be a sermon on "giving." The introductory sermon is entitled "The Problem with Prosperity." Come join us as we seek to make sure our finances are in alignment with God's word.
On Wednesday evening, 8/5, Pastor Bob will begin a brief study in the book of Revelation. This study will focus on the practical as well as the prophetic; it will be a quick look at Revelation in the light of current world events. It is scheduled for only two weeks, so you won't want to miss these services!
At Pastor Bob's request, Jonathan Lewis will be speaking to us on Sunday evening, 8/2, addressing a very critical subject for all churches struggling to grow in these turbulent times. The subject is "Closing the Back Door - Connecting with People." Come and join us in discovering ways all of us can help turn guests into members.
Marsha Mullins is collecting Campbell's labels and box tops for education, to send to Free Will Baptist Family Ministries in Greeneville and to Harvest Child Care Ministries in Duffield. The labels and box tops can be found on numerous items, both food and non-food. For more information and a complete listing of brands and products, please visit www.labelsforeducation.com
The "About Our Pastor" page has been updated and renamed "About Our Staff." We have added the picture and bio for Jonathan Lewis, who is our newly added Director of Family and Music Ministry. This page can be found by going to the "About Us" page on the menu at the left.
Our church recently voted to add a new part-time position and hire Jonathan Lewis as our Director of Family and Music Ministry. We are planning more outreach to young adults and families in the near future. Our church is excited to see how God will use Jonathan with a stronger music ministry and our expanded emphasis on families and youth.
"What Does the Bible Really Say" will be an ongoing series of sermons/lessons beginning Sunday night, January 4. Pastor Bob will be addressing questions posed by our people and will try to bring a clear Biblical perspective to those questions. If you have something in Scripture that is a concern or question to you, please write your question on a slip of paper and put it in the offering plate or give it to the pastor. We will be looking at some very interesting subjects as we begin this new year!
On Sunday evening, August 31, the majority of the church members voted to make the morning service time changes permanent. Please join us for Sunday School at 9:30 a.m. (classes for all ages) and for morning worship service at 10:30 a.m. Sunday evening services will continue to begin at 6:00 p.m., and Wednesday evenings we will continue to meet at 6:30 p.m.
