TANZANIA – PRAISE GOD ~ Since December, over 100 people in remote villages have accepted Christ and they do NOT have a Bible. Each Bible costs $21 to purchase. We are collecting until July 31st. We currently have $4,999.66, which will purchase 238 Bibles. Let’s see how many Bibles we can send beyond 200! Prayerfully consider being a part of spreading the Gospel in Tanzania. Please mark your envelope and check with “Tanzania”.
Ruth – Sam Sunday School Class meets at Jimmy and Marsha’s home on Thursday’s at 10am. . If you’d like to come you are invited!
Deacon Meeting, Monday, August 9th at 5:30 will be a cookout at Jimmy and Marsha’s house. This is for all deacons (present and coming on – including families). We will have hamburgers and hot dogs.
Deacon Election will be August 1st following the morning worship service. We are asking the church to affirm the following top 6 nominees: Paul Toler, Karl Kimball, Reed Simmons, Jason Wilson, Brian Collins (JoAnn), and Steve Brown. With the church’s approval these 6 will join the five deacons currently serving (Jimmy Carter, Jimmy Clark, Rodney Phillips, Allen Fontenot, and Gene Doby).
