But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible” (Mt. 19:26).
26TH YOUTH LECTURESHIP IS HISTORY
It was a great weekend! Thanks to Dean Meadows, Jason Hyde and Nathan Liddell for their work. They are a part of the Apologia Institute and are doing a great job in helping young people, as well as adults, in defending their faith.
Thanks to all of you who helped make it a great success. Bro. Keith Dula, our elder over the youth, with two of our deacons, Don Droll and Ron Pinkston put together a wonderful weekend. Our ladies, as always, worked to have a nice continental breakfast and lunch. Thanks to all. Our thanks to Joe Mallory and Ahren Steis for leading our singing.
DEACON TO BE APPOINTED
It was announced Sunday evening that Jonathan Stanley’s name has been placed before the congregation for deacon. If anyone has an objection to his being appointed, it should be submitted to elders in the following way: It must be in writing, with scripture to back up the objection and be signed by the one making the objection. Any objection must be submitted by December 3, 2017. If there are no objections, Jonathan will be ordained as a deacon on December 10, 2017.
OUR MISSION IS POSSIBLE!!
Someone said, “A rut is a grave with both ends knocked out.” The elders at Lithia Springs do not want this congregation to get in a rut in any of our work. We have a great opportunity before us with Bro. Ahren and his wife Melissa becoming a part of our work. We want to continue to be a shining light for the gospel in our community. Your children and young people are important to this eldership. There are three areas in which we can influence them.
One is in the youth work that Ahren will assist in. He will need the help of all the parents. He is not coming to do the job of the parents but to help the parents to do the job that they need to do to encourage their children.
The second area is the Bible School program. Our teachers are important to helping our young people become strong in the faith. We want a Bible School program that excels not only in teaching the Bible but in motivating the youth as well.
The third area is the Lads to Leaders and Leaderettes program. We need the help of all the parents. We want your children to be saved, and we plan to do everything within our power as an eldership to do that.
LITHIA SPRINGS THANKSGIVING SERVICE WILL BE WEDNESDAY NIGHT, NOVEMBER 22, 2017. The service will consist of singing, scripture reading, and prayer. “It is a good thing to give thanks unto the LORD, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High” (Ps. 92:1).
