Pastor MaryAnn's Message……….

       Well, it's hard to believe that it's time for the Apple Festival!  Are you praying for a revival at the tent this year?  Pastor Gary, (Community Church)and I are going to have another service right down town.  Have you made plans to attend?  Please do!  Make sure you take time to work in the booth or Make some pies to donate to our church booth.  Charlie Thornton's gearing up for another successful year in the booth.  Jus t in case you never worked in our new booth... we sell hot sausage sandwiches and hotdogs. (plain, chili and sauerkraut), coffee, punch, apple pie and apple crisp.  And, you can "get it to go" as well!

     God has a "take-out service" as well.  You can take His word wherever you go!  Especially if it is in your heart where you can pull it up at any time!  I am so poor at memorizing anything, but I haven't given up.  I keep repeating scripture over and over and some days it will be there at the right time for the right person.  You don't have to be a scholar to learn a couple of scriptures.  Just go through your bible and pick out a few important ones for you.  Write them down and put them on your mirror, refrigerator, or in our purse or wallet.  It's a good feeling to use God's "take out service," try it today!

   "May the Lord Himself, who is our source of peace, give you peace at all tines in every way.  The Lord be with you all."  2 Thessalonians 3:16.

(This one I had on my desk...I like being surrounded by His word!

Receiving His Word,

Pastor MaryAnn

*P.S....don't forget we need prayer for the service and all the happenings going on for that weekend!

 

 

 

 


HOMETOUCH....A MINISTRY TO THE HOMEBOUND….

September 2019 Connections...…

 

Thought for the day......

"Who are the homebound, and what do they want?"

by Timothy Merrill

     The homebound are often acutely aware of their limitations.  They miss going to church or to the hairdresser.  They don't like to fuss with oxygen tanks, tubes and cords.  They're often irritated that they can't manage a few steps, or do simple things on their own anymore.  That's why they love it when someone visits for the sole purpose of taking them for a walk to the corner market, or arranging to get them to a store to do some shopping.  Others are greateful for the company they get.  The fortunate are those who have regular weekly visior from their church who will study the Bible with them and bring news from their old friends there....."when our senior citizens stay at home instead of iin anb assisted living facility, they remain "locked" within those four walls; never going out, never socializing.  In assisted living it allows them to become socially interactive with others in a safe environment.

     Our hearts go out to those that want to remain in their homes.
