JANUARY 2019

FROM THE DESK OF PASTOR FRANK

Happy New Year! My goodness, I didn’t think it would ever arrive. Just kidding! 2018 went by so fast, and now it’s time to start over again. My prayer for each of you is that God Blesses you throughout this New Year and you will grow in your faith more each day. January is a time to plan out our yearly Bible Reading schedule. There are several plans to choose from, most bibles have a listing. If your Bible doesn’t have a plan, please let me know, and I will help you find one to best fit your needs. I was so blessed with the volunteers who wanted to ring the bells this Christmas for the Salvation Army. We had a great time in serving our community. I’m looking forward to 2019. I know God has a plan for what He wants us to accomplish in this New Year; New people to receive into our Church family and God’s Kingdom; Exciting adventures in ministries to reach people; To see how God is working in the hearts and lives of our church family. The Bible says the harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. So, what do you say, let’s get to work and serve God by doing our part. Sharing Christ with everyone we meet. Our goal for 2019 should be, “Shaping Hearts, Changing Lives” Isaiah 43:10 says “You are my witnesses,” declares the LORD, “and my servant whom I have chosen, so that you may know and believe me and understand that I am he.” I found this little prayer that I believe speaks volumes of what we should believe about ourselves serving God in 2019. “I will do the best I can; with what I have; where I am; for Jesus’ sake today.” A Good thought to always remember, wouldn’t you agree?

Well, the new year is here!! We just celebrated the birth of our Lord and Saviour!!! I hope you will be healthy this new year. Pray for others and our church as well. Make the new year better by studying God’s Word more. There are Sunday School classes and Bible study classes available or just open your Bible and let The Holy Spirit guide you. I wish many blessings to you this coming year. Remember to drop a few crumbs!!! Jeremiah 29 11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
 
DEACONS DIALOGUE
As we began a new year let us rejoice, God wants us to enjoy life. Jesus said in John 10:10 I came that they may have and enjoy life, and that it in abundance till it overflows, so listen to God each day of the new year and enjoy what God has given us. Happy New Year. Deacon Jim Tilley
 
Verse of the Month
MATTHEW 5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven
 

ABW NEWS

 
HAPPY NEW YEAR! Wow, didn’t I just say this a couple of months ago? Where did 2018 go so quickly? I know they say the older you get, the faster time flies, but when did I get that old?!!!! No comments Mike, Gary, Jim’s, Charlie’s, Tim, Frank, or anyone else I missed. Well anyway, I pray everyone has a very blessed and happy 2019 (and slower)! We hope you had a wonderful Christmas and enjoyed the services at church. The party at the Madison State Hospital for Harmony Lane was a lot of fun, and the guys enjoyed the food, games, candy, and presents Santa brought them. They are always such a blessing. I’m sure everyone is still reading on Isaiah, or if you are like me, haven’t started since December is so busy. So whenever you have some time, keep reading! While you’re at it, you can add January’s Bible book of Roman’s. I won’t take you quite so long! Starting in the new year we will be planning our White Cross quota’s for next year and other things that come up in the spring. This is a good time to join ABW to get involved and learn about what we do for missions and our church. Ladies, if you have been thinking about joining ABW, plan on coming to our meeting in January. We will start back with regular meetings on Tuesday, January 15, at 6:30 p.m., at Ethel’s Place. Hope to see you there! God Bless! Mary
