Pastor’s Paragraphs: August 26, 2016

Dr. Rick MarshallWe are excited to have a Mission Team who will serve in Haiti this fall. It will primarily focus on dental needs and we are pleased to have some outstanding dentists and assistants going as part of the team. This group also has room for a couple of additional lay members who will assist in ministering to families who may have children or others seeing the dentists. Would you consider this opportunity and contact Dan Harrison this week? If the Lord leads, I am confident you will be blessed with this mission opportunity.

Our hearts have hurt for those who have suffered through the flooding in Louisiana. Relief efforts are under way through Baptist work including supplies and teams to assist those who live and work there. On this page you can find a list of items you may purchase and bring with you Sunday which will be added to others from Montgomery and delivered to the flood area on Monday. If you would like to volunteer to go and help with cleanup please contact the office for more information.

The phrase “Last Call” usually gets our attention. Here is mine for these last days of August. It is nearing the end of time we can add anyone to our “Holy Land Journey” next February. We are blessed with an exciting group looking forward to days of great blessing in the land of our Lord. I am pleased a number from our church as well as from this area are going including several who have been before. I am issuing this “Last Call” in case there are some of you who have been putting off the decision or have someone you know who might want to join us. I can make room for a few more but only for a few more days. Please give our office a call if you are interested. Don’t miss this opportunity to “walk in the footsteps of Jesus.” You will remember it the rest of your life.
