September 12, 2017:

Greetings in the name of the Lord.

Sorry again to be late. Sunday was a busy day for me with 2 services, a trip to Longview to be there for Debbie and Kelly, a Bible Study, and then a trip to Tyler to be with Mavis and Ben. There are always things to do and people to see.

It is that time of year when we get ready for charge conference, which this year is at the start of October. This gives us a chance to look back and plan forward. It is important for a church to remember the past and the people who were part of it, but we must also look to the future and strive to make plans to help us take part in the mission of God here in this place.

To let you know, plans are moving forward to convert the bathroom next to the nursery into a handicap accessible bathroom. Bids have been taken and the finance committee has looked at how we will pay for the work. All that remains is for the council to give the final go ahead. The plans to go ahead and purchase Bro. Hales property are moving forward. Different people have come forward with ideas concerning how the buildings can be used. We will be coming to the congregation soon asking for your thoughts. Please include this in your prayers.

May God’s love and grace be with you this week.

See you in church.
