If you have a prayer request, you may submit your name and prayer request via this site (be only as specific as you want). Your particular need may be spiritual, health related, financial or for a family member or friend. We have a Prayer Chain, comprised of a group of Prayer Warriors, who pray individually as they are called, then call the next Prayer Warrior on the list and so on until the chain is complete. In a short time frame, you or your loved one has had a number of prayers said on your behalf. We would also appreciate your letting us know when our prayers have been answered. Praise prayers are an important part of our daily prayers.

This website sends all submitted prayer requests directly to the prayer chain coordinator.

A Word from Pastor Dan

Greetings from your new Interim Pastor! Avonell and I can not express how thrilled we are to be called of God to serve as your Interim Pastor through this very important process of seeking God for the permanent Shepherd He has for you. We look forward to getting to know all of you and becoming a part of your warm fellowship. Thank you for the kindness you have already shown to us in our short time with you.

It can be a scary time for a church when they find themselves for whatever reason to be without a Pastor. In your case, being blessed with the same Pastor for some 19 years makes it even more dramatic. It is in times such as this that we have the opportunity to increase our faith and trust in our Lord. In reality, you have only lost your under shepherd as the Lord Jesus will continue to be your Shepherd.

In John 10:11 Jesus is the “good” Shepherd
In Hebrews 13:20 Jesus is the “great” Shepherd
In 1 Peter 5:4 Jesus is the “chief” Shepherd

The church is very special to our Lord. It is His bride. He loves His church so much that He died for us! He says that He will build His church and the gates of Hell can not prevail against it. Then one day He is coming back for His bride, the church. So we know that even without a permanent under shepherd, the Lord Jesus will take care of His church! We are His sheep and He is our Shepherd.

I believe God’s work for me as your Interim Pastor is to help prepare your church for your next Pastor. Let’s purpose in our hearts and pray to God that He will guide and strengthen each area of ministry at The Fellowship. Let’s pray for God’s wisdom for the Pastor Search Team and all other positions of leadership. Then let us not only pray but work to maintain the unity and health of the body. The unity of spirit is so important to not only sustain the church but to grow it during this interim period.

Our goal should remain simple:

“Tell people how to get to heaven with the good news of Jesus Christ and to help those who are on their way to enjoy the trip!”

In His Service,

Pastor Dan

C.S. Lewis on Stage: The Most Reluctant Convert

Posted on : 03-04-2018 | By : wmb | In : Uncategorized

We were a group of 16, including 7 students, that attended the sold-out performances in Houston. It was an 80 minute play with no intermission where the audience was walked through C.S. Lewis’s journey from Atheism to Faith in Christ. Max McLean portrayed C.S. Lewis, from the setting of his 1950’s office, takeing us through key moments in his life – his mother’s death from cancer as a small boy, his private tutoring that shaped his mental skills to ask questions, his dabbling in the Occult, various belief systems he tried like Materialism, his experience as an officer-solider in the trenches of WWI and his years as an Oxford Don where his friendship with J.R.R. Tolkien, HVD Dyson and others helped to shape his thinking that brought him to Faith in Christ. Lewis said he came, “Kicking and screaming into the kingdom as the most reluctant covert ever.” C.S. Lewis went on to be one of, if not the, greatest Christian apologist of the 20th century.

“Now the story of Christ is simply a true myth: a myth working on us the same way as the others, but with this tremendous difference that it really happened: and one must be content to accept it in the same way, remembering that it is God’s myth where the others are men’s myths: i.e., the Pagan stories are God expressing Himself through the minds of poets, using such images as He found there, while Christianity is God expressing Himself through what we call ‘real things’.” ― C.S. Lewis

To be honest, writing an article for the newsletter every month is quite difficult. It is not because I must try to think up something to write. It is the fact that there is so much to write about and far too little time to write it all down. These last few months have been really full of activity. The two main factors in this was the preparation for Disciple Now and for a Dessert and Entertainment Night. Our Disciple Now weekend went great. We had 16 students come and enjoy a weekend of fun, fellowship, worship, and study of God’s word. During our study time, we looked at how once we become God’s child He starts a renewing process in our lives. We also focused on how we need to submit our hearts, mind and strength to His will rather than our own. One of the main reasons this weekend went so well is because of our adult leaders. They came out and helped, lead small groups, prepared the food, build relationships and wore themselves out by participating in our night game. The other big thing going on right now is a Dessert and Entertainment Night the students will be hosting on April 7th for the church as a way to use their gifts and talents to show appreciation to the church. The students have been working really hard practicing and working through all the details of this special night. If you would like more details on the event, please talk to one of the students.

One more thing I would like to remind you about is that we have 20 spots reserved for camp this year. We will be going to Pineywoods Camp from Monday, July 23rd to Friday, July 27th. The cost is $265. Deposits and Registration Information Forms are due MARCH 28th!

Thanks to all who pitched in at the Work Party

BUILDING & GROUNDS Thanks to all who pitched in at the Work Party, and oh what a party it was! Of course, we kicked the party off with a prayer and a BIG breakfast. After a little bit of fellowship and planning, we jumped right in. These are a few of the things the 15 of us had a great time doing. We cleaned windows, scrubbed the kitchen, vacuumed spider webs, and cleaned and reorganized the pantry. We put a new dish-drying shelf above the kitchen sink and installed a peephole on the back door low enough for our shorter loved ones and youngsters to see through. We replaced the old window tint on the fellowship hall doors and several new lights in the fellowship hall, preschool area, and kitchen. We installed some new door hardware and a non-slip runner on the classroom ramp, and sometime in between all of the excitement, we sat down and had a great lunch together. What a pleasure it is to serve our Lord as a team of believers. We are truly blessed. Darren
