I'm Thankful for Family


TIME CHANGE IS THIS WEEKEND

REMEMBER TO SET CLOCKS BACK ONE HOUR

 

Thank You, LORD for the Rain! Thank you, everyone who came and made our “Trunk or Treat” an indoor event and a success!

 

Our 2018 Car/Bike show was a success! We had 54 participants and raised over $1,000. We gave $750 to the Hospitality House, $250 to our neighbor church for letting us use their property and put the rest in a Car Show fund to have starting money to do it again in 2019. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO MADE THIS YEARS SHOW A SUCCESS!

 

SHOE BOXES

It is time to bring in our boxes. We need to gather them and pack them into larger boxes so that we can transport them to the drop off location (FBC, Abilene). Please bring them ASAP or you may miss this year’s deadline. We will take them to the drop off center Monday, November 12th. They must be here (PBC) no later than Sunday, November 11th.

 

THANKSGIVING MEALS

We are now collecting can goods and grocery foods to share with families that can use some help thru the Holidays with meals. Bring your items and place them on the tables set up in the hallway.

 

COMING EVENTS

November 4th 3-5pm “Mustard Seed”

November 11th AM service Baptism

November 18th Thanksgiving Fellowship Meal for our church family & friends

 

Prayer Needs: Donna Hightower, Marsha B, Ozelma S., Jennie F, Cindi T, Mark Childers, Mark Childers mom,

 

New Sermon Series: “I AM THANKFUL” Begins this Sunday!

I pray you will join me this month as we look at different reasons to be thankful. Our topics will include FAMILY, FAITH, FLOWERS & FORGIVENESS

Psalm 127: 1 Unless the LORD builds the house, they labor in vain who build it; unless the LORD guards the city, the watchmen stays awake in vain.

Who has built your house? What kind of foundation does your house have? What material was used to build your house?

Is your house the LORD’s HOUSE? What makes a house or my house the LORD’s HOUSE?

 

See you in the “House of the LORD” for worship! Come lets worship and give thanks as “Family”!

 

Don’t forget, set your clocks back an hour!

 

Your pastor and friend

Bro. Keith

Collecting the Harvest


THANK YOU, LORD FOR MORE RAIN!

Due to all the rain last week we postponed our CAR SHOW. We will have our CAR/BIKE Show this coming Saturday (October 27th). Bring your cars/bikes or just come and see all those who do. We have lots of door prizes and trophies. Come join in the fun.

 

THANK YOU

To all who came and participated in our first “Mustard Seed” for this fall. We had four different groups go out and gather can goods for “Mission Thanksgiving” and pass out information for our church. We will do it again the first Sunday in November. If you missed this one I hope you can help us with the next one.

 

THANK YOU

To all the men who came and made our first “Men’s Fall Fellowship” a great event. We had 19 men some good hamburgers and great fellowship. We are already planning our next men’s fellowship.

 

CRAZY BRIDGE FELLOWSHIIP

This coming Sunday evening we will have a “Crazy” fellowship! If you have not played the game of “Crazy Bridge”, it is not the game of Bridge, that is just the name. It is a game where the rules change with each hand. You will have lots of fun playing this game. Bring yourself and family and friends and your favorite sweets or chips and sandwiches and let’s have a time of fellowship.

 

TRUNK AND TREAT

Wednesday, October 31st 6 to 7:30

 

 

Calling in all boxes, it is almost time to take all our boxes to the collection center. If you have not filled a box yet or you still have boxes you are working on, this is just a reminder to finish them soon.

 

NEW MISSION:

We are gathering food so that we can help a family or families with “Thanksgiving Meals”. When you go to purchase your groceries pick up a couple of extra items and bring them to church to go in the “Thanksgiving Meals” to bless others.

 

PRAYER NEEDS: Donna Hightower and family (death of Royce, his service will be Monday, at 11am at PBC), Marsha B, Ozelma S, Mark Childers, Mark Childers mom had a stroke, Jennie F, Cindi T,

 

Thank you, Hunter for bring another good message. This is the second sermon series for Hunter to participate in and again he did a good job. If you missed this past Sunday Hunter spoke about Discipline and the importance of Discipline in our lives as Christians and our living for Christ. Thank you again Hunter for challenging us to focus on Discipline in our daily walk with Christ.

 

This week’s message is “The Collecting of Harvest”. This week’s text will be Matthew 13:24-30. There is a lot for us to do to prepare for Harvest. Some of us plant, some of us water, some of us may prepare the soil, some may keep the tractor in good running order but “ONLY GOD” will gather the harvest. In our text another thing that we will not do is “SEPARATE THE HARVEST”. The servant went to the Master and told him that there were weeds growing up with the crop and he asked if he should go pull the weeds, the Master said “No, I will separate the weeds at Harvest”.

There is going to be a “Harvest” someday. I know that I am going to heaven because of my salvation. I hope there will be lots of others who go as well because I have been planting seeds and watering seeds. What kind of Harvest will God gather as a result of your labor?

I pray you will join me this coming Sunday in worship! Join me in praying for God’s blessings upon our message and worship of HIM!

 

ONE MORE THOUGHT:

Thanks to Melvin we have a movie to loan, the movie “St. John the Televangelist” is a production of Ragtown Gospel Theater. This is a hilariously funny, yet touching story that presents the gospel from the view of an extravagantly flamboyant 21st century televangelist who meets the apostle John on the Isle of Patmos. Let me know if you would like to watch it.

 

See you Sunday!

MISSION: We are nearing the end of this year’s “Operation Christmas Child”. We need to have all the boxes in by November 4th.

Next Mission: We will soon be gathering food to bless a family (or families) with meals for the holidays!

 

Prayer needs: Mark Childers (possible TIA, small stoke), Marsha Bonham (kidney tests), Ozelma (eye, knee), Jennie Fredrick (eye), Cindi Thornton, Praise for Rain, Safety for those in danger of flooding, two good weekends since we are moving the car show pray for God to bless both events on two different weekends

 

Pray for Hunter as he brings our message this coming Sunday. We are blessed to have Hunter on staff as a minister to our youth and church families. Hunter is going to continue our messages on “Harvest Time” and as we prepare for our “Mustard Seed” ministry he will bring a message about “Cultivating Harvest”.

 

One more thought:

The LORD will open up for you His rich storehouse, of heaven, to give your land rain in due season and to bless all the works of your hands. Deuteronomy 28:1

I am not sure how much rain we have had, I just know that it has been so much I have lost count. It has been raining so much that people are beginning to say, “please stop”, or things like “they are tired of it raining every day”.

Knowing that every drop of rain comes from heaven and is sent by God and is a blessing from Him, prevents me from ever saying “that is enough”, or “You can stop sending it now”. As a Christian I don’t think any of us as “His Children” should ever think we have had enough or too much of “His blessings” in any form.

I was just thinking about how I have been praying for week’s for God to bless this weekend coming up and with a smile on my face I thought “God, I didn’t see that one coming!”. I was thinking of a different kind of blessing, but truth is “A Blessing” from God is “A blessing” no matter what form it comes in! God has answered our (my) prayer by sending an abundant blessing of rain. Thank You, LORD for hearing and answering prayer!

 

See you Sunday! Never stop praying for God’s blessings!

The Creation of Harvest


Thank You LORD for the rain and for the cooler weather!

Fall is here. With Fall comes not only cooler weather but the harvesting of crops. Growing up here in cotton farming country I am always impressed with all the large amounts of cotton that are harvested from the fields they grew in. What begins as a small seed grows into a large plant that yields many cotton bowels.

Thinking about this time of year and the harvesting that will be going on around us has led me to think about spiritually about harvesting season as well. We will begin a new sermon series this Sunday which I have titled “Harvest Time”. We are going to be talking about different aspects of Harvesting beginning this Sunday with “THE CREATION OF HARVEST”.

Genesis 1:26 “Then God said, Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over the creeping thing that creeps on earth.”

In the beginning God created this world, God created all trees, grass, plants, animals, fish, birds and man. God created everything! God made the seeds that reproduce and give us our vegetables and fruits. God told man to be fruitful and multiply. God put man in charge of taking care of “His Creation”. We are God’s “caretakers of God’s creation”.

We will discuss this topic as it connects to God’s Creation of Harvest this coming Sunday, please join me as start this new series.

 

October is going to be a month full of activities

Every Tuesday till the 20th, Car Show meeting at 7pm

Car Show and Women’s Bazaar 20th

Sunday, October 21st, Mustard Seed Ministry

Tuesday October 23rd at 6pm Men’s Hamburger cook-out/movie

BRING YOUR BIBLE TO SCHOOL

BRING YOUR BIBLE TO SCHOOL, Thursday October 4th, look it up at www.bringyourbibles.org, lets get as many to participate as possible!

 

One more thought, this coming Sunday evening lets do something for fellowship. We haven’t had the opportunity in awhile to have our Sunday evening sharing a meal out together, so I am proposing that this coming Sunday evening in place of our regular Sunday evening Bible study lets meet at a restaurant and have a meal and fellowship together. We will announce the place this coming Sunday morning during our service.

See you Sunday! Thanks for your prayers!

Your pastor and friend

Bro. Keith
