Schedule change update

Due to extremely low temperatures (wind chills in the area are very hazardous) and the potential for ice hazard from melted and refrozen snow, we will not be having church today.  There are lots of factors that we have to consider when making these tough decisions.  We don’t want anyone getting hurt or sick.  We don’t want to risk getting elderly people out on the church van and risk breakdown on such a cold day, and I could go.

So, all services today are cancelled.  Lord willing, we’ll meet at the regular time on Wednesday evening at 7p.m.  Stay safe everyone.

Schedule Change for January 8, 2017

After conferring with the deacons, we have decided to do one church service tomorrow  (1/8/17) at 2p.m.  There will be no Sunday School and no evening service.  The business meeting that was supposed to take place tomorrow will have to be postponed until next week.

I’m getting read to go over to the church now with a snow shovel and work on moving snow.  Any men with shovels who are free and would like to help can meet me there about 3:45p.m.

Love in Christ,

Pastor Vern

We had a wonderful time at the Holiday dinner last night. This might have been the largest crowd we’ve ever had at one of these events. Last night was the first time I remember having to sit out additional tables and chairs, and that’s a good thing! It was a blessing to see FAMILIES together, to have our visitors there to fellowship with us, and just to enjoy a great time in the Lord. Thanks to everyone who worked to prepare all of the great food. You all are such a wonderful group of people, and you are loved.

Several folks have been asking me about my trip to Gatlinburg yesterday, so I thought perhaps I should post an update. I wasn’t allowed access to the main part where the devastation occurred. I guess that hasn’t been completely opened back up yet. So I spent about 3.5 hours on the Gatlinburg end of Pigeon Forge handing out brochures that I had written. These brochures were designed to comfort and encourage. They contained a call to prayer, a call to trust the Sovereign God of the Bible, scripture from the Gospel of Matthew, church information, and my contact info. I did have the opportunity to talk to several people yesterday, but sometimes the real fruit of this kind of labor comes days, or even weeks afterward, when someone will call. Then the opportunities arise to help meet more needs, and build relationships. I’m calling it a success!

I hope you all have a very BLESSED day, as you go about your life keeping Jesus Christ first!

Love in Christ,

Pastor Vern

Come to church tonight at The Free Gift Gospel Mission. Lord willing we will be in Acts Chapter 3 and dealing with the lame man at the Beautiful Gate. He expected to receive something from Peter according to the Bible, and he sure did. I hope you’ll come with an expectation, too, but primarily to worship, glorify, and honor God…..and receive instruction from his Word. 7p.m. We are located at 1025 Maple Street in Kingsport.
