We are having a great silent auction for the Lord’s Acre this fall. Anyone wishing to bid on an item may stop by the church foyer during the week day, from 9:00 a.m. till noon. This is open to the public and the auction will continue till the Saturday night of the Fish Fry.
A reminder that the First Baptist Church, the Assembly of God Church, the First United Methodist Church and others are having a sack-lunch picnic in Dublin City Park on Sunday, 10-19 at noon. This is a musical fellowship so be ready to play an instrument and sing along.
Judy Lunsford reported she was asked to preach at Greens Creek United Methodist at the 9:00 a.m. service.
Their pastor, Mike Hannah and his wife Frances, were in North Carolina visiting their son.
This past Sunday was Youth Sunday at First Methodist and Conner Moore served as our Worship Leader with Cole Moore, Cole’s friend, and Joe Salinas performing as acolytes.
We sang “Happy Birthday” and then “Happy Anniversary” to all those celebrating in October.
Lisa Leatherwood taught the children’s lesson. Lisa ask the children about scarecrows, she wanted to know “What do you use a scarecrow for?” The children answered “To keep the birds away from the garden or field.”
Lisa agreed that was right. Then she asked what they were afraid of, most were scared of the dark except for little Jaxson Salinas who said he wasn’t afraid of anything.
Lisa talked about driving back from Deleon on Friday night in a bad storm. It was so scary that she prayed for the Lord to watch over her and then she felt better. She said we can all pray when we feel afraid. Lisa read from Psalms in the Bible. One psalm said “The Lord is with me, I will not be afraid.”
Brady Moore preached about how we are forever changed by our relationship with God.
We become lifelong students, all of us searching and learning more. This is a journey of growing faith we share with pilgrims we meet along the way.
We become teachers as well, we teach all who we come in contact with. Those around us observe and learn from our actions. What will they learn from us?
In Matthew 14: 13-21 Jesus sees a teaching opportunity so He preaches to a large crowd. He even feeds 5,000 people with an amount of food that originally wouldn’t even feed a young man.
The youth today hear too often how little we have to offer and the young and old alike hear more often how they lack enough qualifications or education. Yet here is Christ saying so much can be done with your gifts when they are given to God.
So much can be done when we quit wrestling with God, and begin instead to walk with Him.
Come and visit us in the big church on the hill and dress casual.
