Perhaps you have heard it said, “We are always in a crisis, just coming out of a crisis, or about to be in a crisis.” So life seems to be! And, this tests our faith or confronts our faith. That is why I am exciting about our preaching series which begins Sunday. With the exception of a few Sundays here and there for special emphases, we are going to be in the book of Isaiah from now until the end of the year. We are going to consider this book from the general theme of “Crisis.” We begin Sunday in Isaiah 7.
We have a lot of exciting events in the next few weeks. Let’s take advantage of all of these opportunities. These are exciting days in the life of our church. Whether it is the Survivor Man retreat for boys next weekend or the Refresh Event for Women on September 22, we have something to encourage and challenge our walk with God. Please pay attention to the details and deadlines for each of these great opportunities.
Please pray about opportunities for missions giving this month as well. We will have boxes out for the Louisiana Baptist Children’s Home Annual Food Drive. In addition, September is the month of giving for Louisiana State Baptist Missions Offering. This offering is called the Georgia Barnette State Missions Offering. A gift to this offering specifically aids the joint mission endeavors of the Louisiana Baptist Convention.
