I am sending my e-mail early this week because there are two important opportunities I want you to be aware of.
#1 Water Baptism this Sunday
We are having water baptisms this Sunday!
Water baptism is an outward, public representation of the internal transformation that occurs when one believes the gospel. It’s symbolic of the believer’s faith in Jesus.
If you have any questions about this, please feel free to e-mail, text or call me. I would love for you to make this step of obedience in either of our services.

#2 Thanksgiving Blessing
This Saturday is our Thanksgiving Blessing! Our goal is to have 175 sponsors so that we can give away 175 turkeys and all the ingredients for a family Thanksgiving meal for local families.
We already have 105 meals provided we need sponsors for 70 more. Your gift of $25 will completely fund Thanksgiving dinner for someone who might be unable to provide that special meal without help. Will you take time to donate right now?
We’ll gather on Friday evening. November 18th at 6:30pm to prepare the bags. Volunteer sign-in on Saturday morning is at 8:30, with the give-away beginning at 9am in the parking lot at the Goodwill Store on New Shackle Island Road.
This is one of the most exciting weekends of the year, so let’s get ready for it!
