Our Mission goals have been steadily progressing and wanted to give just a brief report on the different areas we support.
Nathan & Laura – Tanzania
We are glad to have Nathan, Laura, Josiah and Anna Grace back safely with us in the states. The team they were involved with had some unexpected setbacks and it was deemed prudent that Nathan and his family return to the states. We were saddened that this work had to be left, but one thing we know. This world does not always go along with our plans and often we must make wise and prudent redirections, and sometimes wait for a better opportunity!
Rom 1:13 I do not want you to be unaware, brothers and sisters, that I planned many times to come to you (but have been prevented from doing so until now) in order that I might have a harvest among you, just as I have had among the other Gentiles.
Ben Fulks – Ghana
Ben has recently returned from Ghana and will give a report sometime in the future. He has another trip scheduled later in the year, and he may combine these two reports into one after that trip. We look forward to hearing from him and rejoice that this work continues to go forward.
Kirk & Karen Israel – Castleton, Vermont
A group left June 17th and returned around the 25th….The helped with the remodeling of their new building and encouragement for the church there. We continue to support this work here in the United States and rejoice in the growth that is taking place.
Mark & Ju White – Brazil
As everyone knows there is a group going to Brazil to help and encourage the work we support in Brazil. Much preparation has taken place and some of our youth group along with parents and adults will be making this trip July 22-Aug. 2. Continue to pray for the success of this trip as well as their safety.
The Elders that could be contacted felt it would be wise to cancel Wednesday night services tonight (March 9, 2016). If you have any questions you can contact the church. Safety of our members is a vital part of this decision. Please take care and be careful if you do get out. In Christ!
The clothing give away has been really successful. My hats off to the wonderful sisters of this church family who dedicated time, energy and love to this good work. People were here before eight and many after.
It is 11AM and people are still arriving. It is a wonderful way to glorify our Lord and reach out to people in our community. Sharing and serving together is a wonderful way to put Christ in all we do. May he always be glorified in our lives, words, and actions.
Preparing for a 24 hour Day of Prayer. It begins Saturday morning at 07:00 AM, September 12 and will end Sunday morning at 07:00 AM, September 13. All members are encouraged to take part in this Prayer vigil as we move forward into this year.
There are sheets in the old foyer area for people to sign in 30 minute increments. They may be filled in as individuals, groups, or families. Give this some thought before signing. It is important that we follow through with our commitments to pray during the time we sign up for. More information will follow in the coming three weeks! Check here for updates and remember. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective! James 5:16
