Summer is over. Although, the teachers have been working for a couple of weeks now, the students begin school tomorrow. I hope that this will be a great year for our students and teachers. We have students that will attend public schools and others who will be home schooled. I hope and pray each of you have a great year. We have several who are beginning their senior year in High School. I hope you will make the most of this final year of High School.
I sure enjoyed the Singing and Pie Supper last Sunday evening. This is a great time of fellowship and worship. It is a privilege to sing some of the older and newer songs. This helps us to be even better prepared for our other worship times, as well. The food afterwards, pie, was very enjoyable. If you can, make plans to be a part of this special time on the third Sunday next month, September 21st at 6 p.m.
We want to offer a special welcome to all of our visitors. You will always find a warm welcome here. We hope and pray that our Bible study and worship time together will draw you closer to God. If we can be of assistance to you please let us know and we will do the best that we can to help you. When you can we hope that you will come back and worship with us.
Today, our lesson is entitled: Dying to Self. We will be considering John 12:24-25. When a seed falls into the ground, we know that unless it dies to being a seed, it will never grow and bear fruit. It must die to being a seed, then and only then can it become what it was intended to become. The same is true in our Christian life, unless we can die to ourselves, we cannot truly become what the Lord would have us to be, but what does this mean and how is it to look in my life? I hope you will study this important passage with us, today.
Our Care Groups will be meeting today. Their times and locations will be in the bulletin or announced on Sunday morning. I hope you will make every effort to attend a Care Group. I know you will gain much from a discussion of God’s word.
Our promotion Sunday is scheduled for the first Sunday which is September 7th. I hope you will make plans to be here for this celebration of our children and their parents.
I love you with the love of the Lord. Bob
