From the Pastor’s Heart.
Our annual Homecoming is scheduled Sunday, September 11th. Spiritual renewal services will be Sunday night through Wednesday night,
at 7 p.m. The theme for this year’s Homecoming and Spiritual Renewal services is “A Time for Prayer.”
Sunday morning Jesse Booth will preach “When Things Just Don’t Make Sense,” emphasizing our critical need for prayer.
This service will include a time for remembering those who have passed away during the last year, and thanking God for their legacy.
We’ll enjoy lunch together after the service.
Sunday night Gary Limbrick will preach “Why Do We Pray?”, focusing on praying during the time of the pandemic for healing, health care
professionals, protection, confidence and perseverance.
Monday night Eddie Heath will preach “God Bless America,” encouraging us to remember our dual Christian and American citizenship,
praying for our country while acknowledging that Jesus Christ is Lord of the nations.
Tuesday night Eric Goforth will preach “Pray for All, Even the Republocrats”, prompting us to pray for harmony beyond partisanship, and
wisdom to develop convictions about ethical issues.
Wednesday night at 5:30 p.m. we’ll enjoy a potluck meal and fellowship. Rick Clore will preach “Heavenly Hope”, reinforcing
our God-inspired confidence that after the chaos and instability among nations has subsided, there will at last be peace.
I hope you will attend every service you possibly can. If we ever needed to pray, surely it’s now. Prayer is the Christian’s vital breath—
breathing out worry and breathing in worship, breathing out fear and breathing in faith, breathing our despair and breathing in hope.
“Pray without ceasing.” (1 Thessalonians 5:17)
