Every Generation has a Refuge in God

Have you ever been in a storm, tornado, or hurricane? Natural disasters can be very scary. What about a war zone or traumatic event? We all hope that we are kept safe from these kinds of bad events. Psalm 46 tackles these hard situations head on and offers God’s comfort and peace. As Martin Luther wrote years ago, “A mighty fortress is our God.”

 

New Member Class

Our new member class will be this Sunday, June 25th, in the afternoon at 4:00 p.m. This class is a very important class for every member to go through. This class teaches what we believe, why we believe, and how we seek to fulfill the great commandment and great commission. Come join us if you have not been through this class. This class is also for any guests who would like to know more about our church.

 

God and Country July 2nd

I love America! She is not perfect, but there is no other place I’d rather live and raise a family in than America. On July 2nd, we will have our annual God and Country Day. This is always a very special day for our church family. The Bible has much to say about citizenship and praying for our country and her leaders. Let’s make it a great day and renew our commitment to God and Country.

 

VSM Teams

We have four young ladies who are taking mission trips this summer through the BMA’s VSM program. Rachel Ussery and Sadie Lee left this past Monday morning for Merico. Charity Fitch and Anna Ussery will be going to Romania on July 7th. These young ladies have answered the call to missions. Let’s answer the call to pray for them daily as they minister, travel, and share the gospel of Christ. I know God is going to use these young ladies in a powerful way on these trips.

 

Choir Rehearsal for God and Country Sunday

Calling everyone who likes to sing for the Lord. We would love to have you come and join us for our God and Country Sunday. We will practice again this Wednesday evening at 7:00 p.m.

 

Mission Trip 2017

We have 40 people who will be making a trip to Costa Rica to do missions. Isn’t that exciting? God is going to do a great work through them. Please join me in praying for this team every day. They will be leaving July 8th and return on the 15th. Pray that souls will be saved, that the Costa Rica churches will be strengthened and for safe travels.

 

I love you and I am glad to be your pastor and friend,

Bro. Richard
