TIME…The time to return to Eastern Stand Time is Nov. 6 for us. The wisest man said, “There’s a time to every purpose under the heaven.” Time is fleeting like the falling of a leaf. Time lost can never be regained. Earth changes. Seasons come. Seedtime and harvest. Day and night. God’s love for us never changes. It is not His will that any should be lost.
In our Sunday School lesson, we were reminded that every person has at least one gift; that people have different gifts and that these gifts are to be used to build up the church and please God. We are to rejoice and be kind and giving and loving and merciful and tenderhearted and not think too highly of ourselves.
We were truly blessed to again have Three Bridges in concert in morning service. They sang and gave a message and an invitation and God touched hearts and brought Caleb Ginn to come into church. We pray for him and his family and others who came forward. We welcomed our many visitors.
Then we enjoyed a wonderful meal in Fellowship Hall. No night service.
SAM meeting was Nov. 2 with Nita Fico being as guest speaker.
On Nov. 22, Evelyn and Sam Lamb and son Dean got home from Wisconsin for the winter and we are always so blessed when they come home!
A Harvest Festival will be held Saturday, Nov. 12, noon-3 p.m. then on Sunday, Nov. 13, we are inviting God’s blessings upon us as we invite others to come to Sunday School and church with us and bring canned goods to help in need. Also to give a special “Harvest Day” offering.
There are many ill ones and sad ones among us and we lift them up in prayer.
On Monday, as I was taking Lil Jesus to school, a big deer dashed across the road and hit the right front of the car but not much damage and we weren’t hurt so we are very thankful!
Psalm 32:6a: “For this shall every one that is godly pray unto thee in a time when thou mayest be heard.” Amen. Let us all be diligent in praying.
