We continue to ask you to pray for the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs, Texas. These are our brothers and sisters in Christ. Perhaps you have heard that the Southern Baptist Convention, which we are a part, has offered to pay the funeral expenses of all 26 people murdered in that small church.
First Baptist Christian School is hosting a special chapel for Veteran’s Day this Friday, November 10, at 8:15 a.m. in the main Sanctuary. I want to invite you to this chapel service for two reasons. First, we want to gather in worship to thank God for the veterans who have served our country. We want to teach our students to honor our veterans. We would love for all to be a part of this service, especially our veterans. Second, this is a good way to get to know our school. The classes will be presenting different elements of the worship service through songs and readings.
On Sunday afternoon, our church is hosting a special “Surviving the Holidays” Seminar. “Surviving the Holidays” is especially for people who are grieving a loved one’s death, or who recently experienced a separation or divorce. The seminar is from 4:00 – 6:00 p.m. During this free seminar you will learn how to deal with the many emotions you’ll face during the holidays, what to do about traditions and other coming changes, helpful tips for surviving social events, and how to discover hope for your future. Perhaps you or someone you know will benefit from this opportunity.
I look forward to seeing you Sunday for Sunday School and Worship. We will continue our series on prayer with a Biblical challenge regarding the discipline of continuing in prayer.
