From the Shepherd's Heart

Dear Friends,

The tragedies of hurricanes, earthquakes, volcanoes, political unrest and the spread of evil continue to plague our world.  We should not be surprised because Jesus said these things would come before He returns.  But we also can see that every disaster is also an opportunity to minister the love of God to those in need.

If you are truly thankful for the safety of your family at this time, why not express that gratefulness through giving to missions.  As Southern Baptists we have the opportunity to make a real difference in the lives of people.  Our disaster relief teams are already at work in the Carolinas, Florida and Georgia helping people recover from the devastation of hurricanes.  And, through our international mission partners we are helping around the world.  Your gifts make a difference.

Worship is vitally important these days!  Set aside the Lord's Day to worship Him every week.  Don't let the activities and cares of this world steal your time with God, beginning with your personal quiet time every day.  This fall we are emphasizing the importance of Bible study, inviting you to a dynamic new walk in His word.  And, join us for High Attendance Day in Sunday School on Sunday, October 28.  There's a Bible Fellowship group just for you meeting at 10 am followed by worship at 11 and an old-fashioned barbecue lunch to follow.  Bring a friend and let's study the scriptures together.

In Christ,

Pastor Craig Bailey
