Hi everyone, I know I send this email out on Friday's but I'll be away this weekend. My grandson Ben turns 9 years old on Saturday and he lives in Carbonear Newfoundland. We are leaving tonight on the boat and coming back next Monday. Pastor Bruce is available if you need anything. Please pray for Alice and I to have good roads and good weather as we travel.
The US has a new president and we pray for his leadership. Romans 13:1-2 "Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves."
I have been teaching on leadership at Bible Study and that learning how to follow and lead starts at birth. Your home life prepares you to follow and lead long before you put on a white hat at a job site. Following or leading is next about your attitude. Do you live life in an, 'I want to mode' or 'I have to mode?' Tonight we will look at the third ingredient that every healthy follower or leader should have.
Last Sunday was a history maker or at least a record breaker for us. Before this our greatest attendance on a Sunday morning was 243 but last Sunday it was 258. Praise the Lord and all the glory goes to God. With growth comes growing pains and stretch marks as we expand our borders. Growth also brings with it a certain amount of chaos so be nice, keep sweet, and act kind as the Lord sets the bar higher in us for greater growth around us. I want to thank you all for your prayers, patience, work, and support in and around our church to make it what it is. I believe in Christ we have what it takes so as we take what we have lets advance strongly into the future.
This Sunday Pastor Mark will be sharing the Word of the Lord. Pastor Mark is an inspired speaker and he has a great gift to encourage the Family of God. Come out and bring a friend.
The Christmas banquet is also drawing near. Make sure you pick up your tickets. You can pay later if you have to but with our limited space we need to know who's coming. Thank you so much for your help.
Continue to pray for all those in need, looking forward to seeing you soon, lots of love, Pastor Kevin and Alice
