MESSAGE. “At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.” Albert Schweitzer
MINISTRY. This Sabbath both services will take place in the church Fellowship Hall. “End It Now” is the theme of whole Sabbath day. A Bible-based Sabbath morning message will be presented by a guest speaker, Mable C. Dunbar, Ph.D. We are excited to let you know that this Sabbath, Children’s Church will be held in the Sanctuary during second service for children up to, and including, age 12. Children four and younger must be accompanied by a parent. If you have questions, please let us know. Thank you and God bless.
CEREAL BARREL. Hunger in the suburbs exists and it is growing. According to the U.S Census Bureau, over 53,000 people in Hamilton County live below the poverty level. Sometimes, hard working adults cannot make ends meet due to underemployment. The effects of hunger on children are devastating and can have lifelong consequences. Proper nutrition is essential for the growth and development of young children. You may help one family at a time by bringing a cereal box and placing it into the CEREAL BARREL in the lobby of our church. God bless you. http://factfinder.census.gov/faces/nav/jsf/pages/community_facts.xhtml?src=bkmk
OUR OWN CHAMPION. Congratulations to pastor David Bissell. Last Sunday he ran the Chattanooga Bridge 5K and he finished first in his age group! Thank you, David, for your Nobel goal of raising funds for the Worthy Student fund. Under the photo is a short statement from David himself.
“Thank you, church, for your support. It was not an easy race because I don’t enjoy pushing it that hard but it was a worthy project. Just wanted you to know I came in first in my age group 🙂 Time was 28.39. There were 8 people in my age group which was 70 and above. One man was 89 years old. Thank you to all who have sponsored me or were planning to sponsor me. You can write out a check to OAKS for Worthy Students or give me the check or cash this Sabbath at church. I will be there for both services :-)”
YOUTH MINISTRY. Here is an important message from pastor Aubrey: “Church Bonfire this Sabbath at 6:30 pm. Smores, worship, and fellowship, come out and close out the Sabbath with us. One of our youth, Noah Banks, will be speaking. See you there!”
PRAYERS. Please, pray for George Mackel. He had surgery on Tuesday. Late Tuesday night Pastor Sabo and Steve Bremner drove to his hospital room and performed anointing.
Have a blessed weekend, my friends. There are many wonderful things planned in our church for the next few days including a Friday night Bible study group at the Samariatan Center at 6:30, Haney Hungry Hombres (Men’s Ministry Sunday Morning Breakfast) at 8:30 am and a Baby Shower for Shelly Turkenkopf on Sunday. I’ll be spending the next few days with my family camping in the Smoky Mountains near Gatlinburg. For Galina and me this will be the first time camping in a tent 😄. Pray for us 🙏
With prayers for you,
