DECEMBER AT THE FELLOWSHIP

Posted on : 03-11-2017 | By : wmb | In : Uncategorized

DECEMBER AT THE FELLOWSHIP… We are jumping into the Christmas season and spirit early in December this year, beginning Sunday, December 3 with The A. D. Players Touring Company’s presentation of “Hark the Harold” at 6pm, followed on Sunday, December 10 by our Christmas Music program “The Greatest Story Ever Told” at 5pm. Following each of these we will have a time of fellowship and refreshments. For our Fellowships we need someone(s) to be responsible for coordinating them, i.e. getting the tables set up, lining up refreshments and help to serve them, then putting away/clean up at the end of the evening.

For the refreshments we’re asking for (as usual) cookies, brownies and loaf pan breads/cakes to be sliced… napkin type desserts. If you can help with the refreshments and would like to make them ahead of time you may bring them to church and we’ll put them in the freezer. Please label them “Christmas Fellowships”. Or if you prefer to bake them and bring them with you on those evenings, please do! We have trays available for this. If you are able to help in any of these areas please let us know by signing up, the sheet is in the foyer. Any help in these areas it would greatly appreciated, see Maudell or April if you have any questions.

Also… We’ll decorate the Fellowship building and the sanctuary on Saturday, Nov 25 any and all help is appreciated! See Maudell.

Posted on : 03-11-2017 | By : wmb | In : Uncategorized

MISSIONS – MEMORIAL BAPTIST PORT ARTHUR The church (Memorial Baptist) voted last night, October 29, to move forward with the restoration work as soon as possible. The goal is to be able to worship in the facility as soon as possible. They will have to go through the city regarding certain permits, having an asbestos survey , and identifying a contractor. Pastor Bill has begun dealing with these. They have been given sheet rock and are trying to store it. When these requirements are met work can be scheduled. Prayer is needed immediately:

 that the city requirements be met
 that the hearts of the opposition will soften and will be supportive

 that the ministry will resume soon to the community
 that we will be faithful to our commitment to support and encourage

We are thankful for the opportunity to be a part of this work. Pray and be ready as we join them and God where He is at work.

Some thoughts on Prayer:

It’s remarkable that in all of his writings Paul’s prayers for his friends contain no appeals for changes in their circumstances. – Timothy Keller

If you have a concern in your heart and go before God on your knees, you will get more than can be taught in seminaries. – A.W. Tozer

Our prayers lay the track down on which God’s power can come. Like a mighty locomotive, His power is … but it cannot reach us without rails. – Watchman Nee

Prayer is not logical, it is a mysterious moral working of the Holy Spirit. – Oswald Chambers

In order to pray correctly, we must be able to listen to the other person. – Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Intercessory prayer is the purifying bath into which the individual and the (church) community must enter every day. – Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Men and brethren, if you pray at all, pray God to make you real, through and through. – Charles Spurgeon

Prayer is an art which only the Spirit can teach us. He is the giver of all prayer. – Charles Spurgeon

TRANSITIONS-COLLEGE AND CAREER

We all long for peace, security, and fulfillment. Trying to meet these needs in unhealthy ways is useless. God has a better plan. We can find our satisfaction in a relationship with Him, Jesus Christ. He is the great “I am”. Through Him we have everything we need. We live in a world where trouble surrounds us and if not careful, it can overwhelm us. Jesus tells us in John 14:1. “Do not let our hearts be troubled” Jesus understands our need for peace. The answer for a troubled heart is a trusting heart. We don’t have to be troubled by

constantly wondering if we are good enough, if we have enough, or if we have done enough. Our troubled hearts can be comforted by finding peace and purpose in trusting God. We look forward to seeing you Sunday mornings at 9:30am as we explore deeper into the book of John 14 &15. As young adults in the college and career world, we are often faced with many options and choices. Take time to study God’s word and be ready to make these decisions with God’s help! Sharnel

Some ideas include: dry erase markers, colored Sharpies, cool Post-it notes, colored pens, highlighters, pretty notepads, notecards, stickers, Washi tape. In other words, something fun for their classrooms. If you have any questions, please contact Kyra or Fonda. Hope your summer days are just what you dreamed of.
