FROM THE CUFF

Larry AcuffFROM THE CUFF

MISSION: POSSIBLE
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.

ACES
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.

SPECIAL CONTRIBUTION
SEPTEMBER 24th
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).

THE FOUNTAIN OF LIFETHE LIFE
This past Saturday we recorded program #373, 374 for GBN and #167, 168 for Channel 57.
Sept. 30 – Channel 57 – Program #167 – The History of The Church (Steve Vice and LA).
Oct. 7 – Channel 57 – Program #168 – Exposing False Teachers
Watch these programs (DVR them) and encourage others to do so. We appreciate Steve Vice, preacher for the Forest Park congregation appearing with us on #167.

    Hi Larry; Never forget you at Woodland Heights. You built that church up. Enjoyed your visit to our home a few years ago. I have the old church bell they had sitting up front to ring the beginning of service. The building is still there. Garnett Randolph lived there at one time. Someone lives there now. Woodland was helpful in starting White Oak too. If you have written any books i would like one with your autograph. Thanks!

    We keep receiving the discs and getting them on the air in downriver Detroit. Comcast channel 20 local access with a potential audience of 300,000 at 2PM and 6PM on Sundays the Lithia Springs church of Christ in Georgia has the floor. We recently concluded our gospel meeting with Wissam Youssif, a convert to Christianity from Islam in Baghdad, Iraq who literally packed the Eureka Heights building wall to wall for three nights. Wissam’s goal is to reach the Muslim population here in the Dearborn area, and the recordings of the meeting are on the Sunset church of Christ in Taylor website. You know with the condition the world is in, it should be hard to find a seat in any church.

    Hi Larry: Your programs The Fountain of Life are very good and are now on the air weekly in downriver Detroit on the Channel 20 local access channel of Comcast. When you get time, please forward us some more discs. The ones with one program per disc seem to work better, but you can send what you have, I will make it work. Let your people know the viewing audience is a potential 300,000 population in the area. Thanks again, Gary Hatmaker; Eureka Heights church of Christ

    I love your preaching lessons, brother Larry. I have listened to many of your lessons on the wsoj.net site. I also have listened to some of your lessons on your chucrch site.

    I am wondering do you hold gospel meetings. If so, would you ever consider coming to Kentucky.

    I am the minister for the Campton Church of Christ in Campton, Kentucky. We are approximately 55 miles Southeast of Lexington, Kentucky. Just let me know. We generally have our meetings in April and October. They are usually njust week-end mtgs. Would you have any openings in the next year or two?

    Thanks so much for your reply. Please call me if you have any questions.
