Recap of The Freedom Center Showing Our Church Love Through A Meal

Image
On September 26 the life of our church changed forever when our bus was involved in an accident while taking our Senior Adults on a trip to Helen, GA.  Many of our members are still recovering and one has passed away from her injuries.  Our faith has been strengthened by a multitude of individuals, churches, schools, community groups etc., as we grieve, heal, and move forward.

Pastor Phil Sears and his church family at The Freedom Center have been friends of our church for a long time.  Our two churches are not even a mile apart, yet we work together to take the gospel to our community.  On Sunday, October 30th their church family shared a BBQ lunch and all the fixings with our church family.  From set up, serving, to clean up, they did it all.  It was very humbling for us all.  This was just a glimpse of what heaven is going to be like.  All believers working together to glorify God.  This is a was a beautiful thing.

God uses our commitment to Him to reach others, even when placed in scary places. God holds us close and reaches others who are far away. We are unpacking this and more tonight at Wednesday Night Bible Study tonight @ 6:30 pm. You are officially invited :)

All Things Are At Work

Image
I cannot thank everyone enough for their support, love and encouragement through a very tough time for our church members and myself. Everyone is healing from the wreck, many still need fervent prayers. God is on the move in my life and our church family. I can honestly say, I am ready to proclaim God's Word and the messages He has given me for tomorrow. There is so much craziness going on in our world right now, but I am taking solace in the fact that "All Things Work For God's Glory". We will be looking at Romans 8 tomorrow morning. The only way to make sense of current days is to focus on God's Word in the Bible. I encourage you to join us and continue to pray for those impacted by Hurricane Matthew.

In Christ,

Pastor James

Please bring your vehicle with candy to give out to the children in our community who come through our parking lot, as we reach out to their families. Dressing up and decorating your trunk is not a requirement to participate but is always appreciated.  As you can imagine there is a large demand for candy as well.  If you would like to donate candy please bring it to our Bible Study Office when you come to church.

Be Grateful for Another Sunday and Join Us

God Is On The Move
Last Monday (September 26) our church bus was involved in a horrific accident on I-85.  As dark as recent days have been, God's sovereign hand has been upon all of us.  Many are healing and two are still hospitalized.  The church family and community have been amazing with their love, outpouring and support.  It seems impossible to approach this Sunday as any other given Sunday.  I am thankful to see the sun again!  Join us this Sunday at 10:30am as we worship the God whose hand is upon us all.  The church is a family and lets get our family together.
