Loving Others Journey Team Outing (Saturday, March 21 at 12:30p.m.)

WE ARE LOOKING FOR………people who are interested in letting their lights shine and being witnesses for Jesus Christ. You ask, “Oh Pastor, that is my desire! How may I go about realizing this in my own life???” Well, this is what you do. Show up at the church tomorrow at 12:30p.m. and go out with the Loving Others Journey team. You won’t be by yourself and you won’t have to do any talking unless you want to. We need more prayer warriors and smiling faces…… and just about anyone can do that!

Now with that said, let me share my sincere prayer request with you all. I’m am earnestly praying that God would move upon hearts and some more people would get a burden for this ministry. My prayer is that some new faces will show up tomorrow eager and ready to serve, and some others we’ve not had in awhile would come back out and help us. The more people we have the more people we can encounter, and the more ground we can cover for Jesus. Won’t you help us blanket the neighborhood? I hope you will.

There are many reasons why you should join us tomorrow, but I think the main reason you should join us is because Christ commanded his disciples in the Great Commission to go out into the world and preach the gospel to everyone, and building relationships and getting to know people is of extreme importance in ministry. Is that reason enough for YOU to show up tomorrow? It surely should be my dear friend…..it surely should be.

To the one reading this post, YES…YOU! Why not join us tomorrow at 12:30p.m? It is supposed to be in the 60’s with only a 10% chance of rain. You’ll have an opportunity to be a blessing to others, God will be glorified, and in turn, you’ll be blessed yourself!

So, that other thing that you WERE GOING to do instead…..you know…..that thing that can WAIT until another time because it’s NOT really important…….will you sacrifice that to come work for Jesus? The time is drawing near and people are going to Hell. They need to hear about Jesus Christ and see his love in action. I know you all agree. Isn’t God great? I’ll be looking for you! Yes you!

Love in Christ,

Pastor Vern

No Church Tonight (Wednesday, February 25)

After consulting with the deacons, examining weather reports, and praying to make an informed decision that takes safety and well-being into consideration, we will NOT be having church tonight at 7p.m.  This is largely due to the fact of weather reports that indicate several more inches of snow to fall in Kingsport beginning as early as 4p.m.  Hopefully we can meet Sunday.  We love you church!

Schedule change for Sunday, February, 22 (Church at 3p.m.)

I’ve received several reports that some roads around Kingsport are still rough and things haven’t cleared much at all.  As of this morning the church parking lot was impassable.  We are cancelling morning and evening services on Feb. 22, but we will plan on having ONE SERVICE tomorrow afternoon at 3p.m.  I’ll check the church parking lot and gather road condition information tomorrow around noon, and we’ll re-assess at that time.  Please plan to be in attendance tomorrow at 3p.m. unless we announce otherwise.  Be safe and stay warm.

Love in Christ,

Pastor Vern
