From the Shepherd's Heart
There are two important events coming up in October. First, is our Fall Revival beginning October 21-24th, a Sunday morning through Wednesday evening. Our speaker willl be Rev. Manley Beasley, Jr. His is the Pastor at Hot Springs Baptist Church, Hot Springs, Arkansas. Not only is Manley my wife's uncle and my mentor but he is a man who desires revival for the church - Christ's body. Be prepared to be challenged spiritually. Begin to pray for all our members and potential guests to have teachable spirits ready to respond to the call or conviction of our Heavenly Father. As Henry Blackaby says about the church in general "we need a fresh word from God!" - So let's begin to pray for that now.
The other important event in October I would like to address is the Fall Festival which will fall on Wednesday night, October 31st. Of course we need as many volunteers as possible so please consider helping for setup/take down and working at various booths. This year we will add a new element by having a gospel presentation during festival time. So begin to pray for those who will come who are lost and unchurched, for their salvation, and for new contacts we can reach for the Lord. Pray the Lord will bring favorable weather and that those serving will be attentive to possible outreach opportunities as they serve in various capacities. Pray also for me as I present the gospel in accordance with God's Will.
There is much to anticipate and be excited about coming up this month and in the months to follow. Let's work and pray in unity that we will glorify the Lord.
