Thanking God for you

Church Family,

I was blown away last night, but not by the wind. I was blown away by the display of God's love and care through you all. The weather did not keep yall from loving, serving, and going to minister to others last night. Thank you so much to everyone who attended the Trunk or Treat. Thanks to the cooking crew, cleaning crew, those who decorated Trunks, passed out candy, and most importantly, those who prayed. I loved doing this together with you all. We also, not only met our goal of Inviting 1800 people to church this year, we smashed that by Inviting over 500 people this past week alone. 

Today in my bible reading I read Jeremiah 16:11-12 then you shall say to them: ‘Because your fathers have forsaken me, declares the LORD, and have gone after other gods and have served and worshiped them, and have forsaken me and have not kept my law, 12and because you have done worse than your fathers, for behold, every one of you follows his stubborn, evil will, refusing to listen to me.

The people wanted to know how they had sinned? Why was God disciplining them so harshly? What stuck out to me was they had forsaken God. They turned away or abandoned God. We often try to deal with a certain sin, but have you ever considered that your certain sin is a byproduct of forsaking God? Is there a command of God that you refuse to believe or obey? Is there something God is calling you to do, but you keep turning away from Him?

Can I lovingly ask you to think about this today, the bible tells us that God will never leave us or forsake us(Hebrews 13). Just because we leave God, doesnt mean that God leaves us. If you are in a season that involves your forsaking God, then please turn back to Him. He will never leave you or forsake you. Draw strength from this promise.


1) Visitation tonight 5:30 food and 6:15 going out. Come help us make contact with our visitors from yesterday.

2) Praise God for the new additions to our church family, Markelli Adams and family.

3) Homecoming this Sunday, Nov 5th with Dr. Tommy Richardson. Please bring enough food for you and a guest.

Love, Serve, Go
