But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible” (Mt. 19:26).
Our sympathy goes out to Bro. Jerry and Sis. Amparo Marks. Jerry’s 31-year-old daughter, Katie, passed away suddenly on Wednesday (9/6). The funeral services were held at the church building on Friday. Katie had recently suffered a broken leg and also suffered with Charcot-Marie-Tooth (named after the doctors who discovered it. CMT is also commonly called hereditary sensory and motor neuropathy.) Katie had attended several functions of the congregation.
Our prayers are with this family.
ACTIVE CHRISTIANS EFFECTIVELY SERVING
The ACES group meets every Thursday at 9:00 A.M. If you would like to help just show up. They start with a brief devotional then work on things around the building. This past week Eddie Cox, Charlie Prince, Don Droll, Jimmie Redden, Maryanne Rutherford and Teresa Mayfield worked hard getting things done. Thanks folks.
WILL YOU HELP?
There are two events that will be coming up very soon. Will you help with these events by participating and being present? The first one in October 29 – Nov. 2, 2017. Memphis School of Preaching students will be with us in a door knocking campaign. Thanks to those of you who have signed up to house the students. Bro. Bobby Liddell will be speaker in the meeting. We will door knock during the day and have the meeting in the evening. Will you help?
The second event is Nov. 11-12 when we have our Annual Youth Lectureship. Bro. Nathan Liddell, Bro. Dean Meadows and Bro. Jason Hyde will be here for that weekend. Every parent and every child should be here. Do not, as Paul said, so say I now again, Do not plan anything that will hinder you from being present that weekend. If you have already planned something…cancel it!
Two exciting events. Will you help? Will you make a commitment? Yes! Every member will help.
IT HURTS to see our citizens displaced by hurricanes. Folks lose everything. Those who do not have flood insurance will have to replace their homes and belongings without any help. But we as Christians are charged, “As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith” (Gal. 6:10). Jesus gave a great message in Matthew twenty-five in explaining why some were saved and others lost. Those who were lost didn’t help others. Those who were saved did. Lithia Springs has always been a compassionate congregation. Let’s be liberal and compassionate on September 24th. All over our budget of $5500.00 will go toward hurricane relief (Texas, Florida or Georgia).
