Reflections- "Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!" - Philippians 4:4
THE PASTOR'S PERSPECTIVE
So, with Hurricane Florence out there, you may be wondering, will there be church services this Sunday? Right now, based upon the latest forecasts of Florence tracking farther south, we should be spared the worse. I remain hopeful that we will have services this Sunday.
That being said, our area is still under a tropical storm watch & we may have enough wind & rain from this storm to knock out our power. I will keep everyone as up-to-date as I can. But keep on praying and let's remain hopeful.
FYI- The title of Sunday's message is "The Calm In The Storm". Appropriate!
As I announced on Sunday, the Ladies Appreciation Breakfast has been rescheduled to Saturday morning, October 20th, from 9:00-10:00 a.m. Your children are welcome if you need to bring them. We do need a count, so please sign up in the foyer.
Grace & Peace,
