January 2017



Here we are at the end of 2016 looking forward with anticipation to 2017. We have had a great year filled with the blessings of God. We have had several new additions to our church, had several mission opportunities in Fort Smith, Forrest City, and Greers Ferry, and three from our congregation went to Casper, Wyoming to help Chris Sims and the Wind City Church. We have ministered to our community through our Food Pantry, Love’s Closet clothing ministry, Vacation Bible School, Block Party and Christmas Baskets. We generously gave over $3800 to missions through our Annie Armstrong, Dixie Jackson, and Lottie Moon offerings. We ministered in several nursing homes in the summer and 37 went Christmas Caroling in December to Woodlawn Heights and Wildwood Independent Living. All of this is possible because of our faithful service to God and to His church.

 

It is my prayer that our faithfulness will continue and we can do even more throughout the coming year. I want to encourage everyone of us to make God and His church a priority this year. Get involved in Sunday School, get involved in worship, join the choir, help with the children and youth ministry, volunteer in the nursery, help with our food pantry and Love’s Closet, find some place to serve in this new year.

 

Instead of resolutions (that we will probably not keep) let’s renew our commitment to God, and say as the prophet Isaiah said in chapter 6, verse 8, “Here am I! Send me.”

 

Loving serving together with you,

Your Pastor & friend, Bro. Tommy
