July Newsletter 2017

July 2017


June is all but over and what a month it was!  We had a full and wonderful week of children’s VBS and the songs keep running trough my mind.  We were privileged to touch the lives of many young people in our community.  Thank Jenifer Gosh, and everyone else who played a part this year.

               As I am writing this letter my heart is bitter sweet for Pastor Peter, KD, and the boys as Peter completes his time with FLBC as our youth pastor.  Please join me in praying for them that God would guide them and bless them as they seek His will.  Also pray for and support our young people and the leaders who will rally to continue to minister to the youth. 

We will still host the youth “Hands and Feet week” our youth local mission which will focus hands-on ministry to our senior adults, needs in our church family, and community outreach service to show the love of Christ.  Pray it goes well this year and please pitch in and help where you can.

We begin July celebrating Independence Day.  The Church picnic will follow the 2 July morning service.  Let’s not take our freedom for granted…take time to thank God for the freedoms that we enjoy.   Stand firm against the attacks to erode our freedoms because once they are gone they will likely never be restored.  It is noteworthy that the day we celebrate our independence is also a day we should acknowledge our Dependence on God.  Only God could have established us and blessed us as a nation as He has.  We owe Him our gratitude, our allegiance, and our very lives.  The United States of America did not invent freedom, God did. We would do well to remember that.


It is for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore, keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery.  Galatians 5:1 


Your nation needs your prayers.


 If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land.  2 Chronicles 7:14
