First of all, I want to thank all of you who helped make this past week's Room 4 Hope a successful one. I know the families appreciated being able to stay on our campus and were overwhelmed by the amount of love and care that was shown to them by our church family. Also, I want to say a special "Thank You" to Brenda Rhine for being our Room 4 Hope Coordinator. This ministry would not happen without her efforts. In case you missed out on participating this past week, our next Room 4 Hope hosting week will be January 13-19. Please mark your calendars now and make plans to help us provide hope and love to families in our community who are experiencing homelessness.
This Thursday November 15th, our Adults on Mission and Young @ Heart ministries will be joining forces to provide us with a unique opportunity to hear about and pray for all that God is doing in the Pacific Northwest. The day begins at 10:30am as Lance Caddell will join us for our monthly Adults on Mission meeting. Lance works for the Northwest Baptist Convention in the area of church health. Don't miss this opportunity to hear from one of our Southern Baptist leaders. Once this meeting is over, we will move into a time of fellowship as we feast on Turkey and other delicious offerings. Please join us next Thursday as we gather together for a time of fellowship and thanking God for His many blessings.
This Sunday at 9:15am, we will continue our focus on the book of Judges. This week, we will be in Judges 2 and 3, as we look at how quick and easy it is to choose one king over another. You might consider reading Joshua 24:14-28 and Judges 2-3 in preparation for our time together.
In our 10:15am service, we will go on a road trip with Jesus as He is led by God into the wilderness for the sole purpose of being tempted by Satan. Now, why would God, who just a few verses earlier announced to the world that "this is my beloved Son with whom I am well pleased", lead Jesus into the wilderness, not eat anything for 40 days and then invite Satan to come and tempt Him? Why would God do that? Join us on Sunday at 10:30am as we seek to answer this and other questions about the temptations we face.
See you Sunday.
Doug Boyd - Sr. Pastor
