October 2018 Newsletter
God is preparing a place here for EVERYONE!  Don’t be afraid to ask anyone and everyone to join you in this community!  Don’t allow the little disagreements along the way get in the way of each and every one of us being a part of what God is building here!  Let our focus be on knowing God more and SEEING SOULS SAVED!
Red Letters
We will continue to look at the teaching of Jesus through the month of October.  We are seeing a theme emerge from His teaching.  It isn’t the outside that makes a person righteous.  Rather, it is the condition of a persons heart that determines how clean they really are.  Over the next few weeks we will see what a clean heart looks like and discover how we can model that in our lives.
24 to Double
First Wednesday each month 6:30 p.m.
If you love your church and care about the lost in our community, then this event is for you!  We will be going over some very important training to help us better structure ourselves to reach the lost in our community!  We come in for a video and some discussion as we listen to Pastor Jerry Lawson deliver this training.  This is an extremely valuable time and we encourage everyone to attend that can.
If you have any questions regarding this time, see Pastor Luke.
