A Late Monday Morning Clarity

Great weekend! The snow on the ground late last week was beautiful and made for a refreshing change of scenery all weekend. It was cool to see some of it still on the ground pulling up to the church Sunday morning.
  • Great crowd again Sunday morning. The new year has seen an increase to our weekly attendance. We are looking at the possibility of having to go to 2 services later on this year to accommodate future growth.
  • Pray for the "Feasibility Team". We are having regular meetings to go over plans and opportunities to reignite the vision to move "Forward in Faith". These godly men need your prayer for wisdom and insight.
  • The Valentine's Banquet Saturday night was amazing. Thanks to Debra Perry and her team for all the work they put into it. Over 200 people were there. Great food! Much thanks to the guys who stood out in the cold and cooked so many steaks.
  • I have heard a lot of funny comments about the "Not So Newlywed Game" at the banquet. It was a lot of fun to hear some of the answers to the questions. Who knew that Claude Thomas was a "Hot Tamale"?
  • I spent this past Tuesday in Birmingham at an event sponsored by ALCAP about the proposed legislation to legalize gambling. I was privileged to hear Dr. Richard Land from the SBC Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission speak. We are blessed as Southern Baptists to have this man represent us in Washington. This is an issue that as Christ-followers we need to be writing our congressional representatives to let them know our feelings. There is also a rally at the State Capitol next Tuesday, March 23. If you want to go, call the church office and let us know.
  • Don't forget we have a lot of stuff coming up that you can partner in to spread the gospel. Sign up for our Across Alabama Prayerwalk of the community on March 20th. We'll also go the next week to give invitations to attend church on Easter. Also, remember our Mission Trip to Kentucky June 20-25. There are only 26 spots available.
We have some baptisms coming up this Sunday! That always makes for a great day! See you Sunday!
