75th Homecoming with the Sharpes Next Sunday beginning at 10:30
The Lord has blessed us with a treasured history. Next Sunday, we will celebrate God’s faithfulness with a service that hopefully will truly inspire and touch our hearts. It begins with hearing several transformational moments via the video from people in our congregation. These stories will thrill the heart as they remind us of the incredible Savior we serve. Then the Sharpes will lead us in a wonderful time of praise and worship. Midway through the service, we will once again hear how God moved among us in unusual ways. We will conclude with the Sharpes singing several songs that will speak to our hearts. Following the service, everyone is invited to join us for dinner on the grounds. The church is providing the fried chicken and ham while we are encouraged to bring side items, desserts and drinks. We are still looking for more transformational moments so please consider telling us your favorite WCFN story. It might be your testimony that brings someone else to faith in our Lord. Regina Martin and Nicole Bayne are videotaping these segments before church and during the week. Join me in praying that our 75th anniversary will bring glory to God and someone will be reached.
This Week’s Sermon: “Chapter Six: The Wilderness”
I hope you have enjoyed our journey through the Bible. We have read about Abraham and Moses along with many other characters essential to knowing the story of God. This week, we look at how the Israelites had to wander in the desert for forty years because of their lack of faith in the Lord. They could have been enjoying the fruits of the Promised Land but instead they had a steady diet of quail and manna. It makes me wonder what amazing adventures we miss out on because we don’t believe God can empower us to do the impossible. What makes it more difficult to understand is that the Israelites had just seen God deliver them from the Egyptians but now they failed to believe. I hope you will attend our worship service on Sunday and I want to encourage everyone to bring their book “The Story”. At the end of each chapter, there is a place where one can put notes and insights that God gives.
Fall Festival: Saturday, October 26
Let’s do life together by providing a fun filled evening for our children. The church will provide the inflatables and food, while we can assist in greeting our community and participating in our trick or treat giveaway. We need plenty of candy for the kids and we need several volunteers to clean up after it is over. Please help us reach families in our neighborhood.
From Pastor Bill
Hope all is well as the Fair has come to town and the temperature has dropped. This week, both Paul Martin and Donna Jenkins had successful surgeries and are home recovering. Harold Finley is now in NHC facility after being released from Lexington hospital. Will Chapman came home from Richland hospital on Wednesday. Please remember Rod Dinkins and Carol Johnson along with the others in our bulletin. On Sunday, we are looking forward to worshiping our Savior as we look at "The Wanderings" of the Israelite people. This is chapter six in the book "The Story". Please join us.
