Sunday Morning's Attendance
DON'T FORGET YOUR FAITH PROMISE COMMITMENT CARD
The Lord has been good to us once again as a church and we were able by the power of God to bear fruit here at the Lincoln Baptist Church this Sunday. It was great to see visitors and salvations in the services. I came into this Sunday trying to get over a bout with bronchitis which made my voice very weak. I appreciate Bro Looper being flexible and willing to step up and teach the adult class on Sunday Morning and bring the message in the morning service. I am thankful that the Lord gave my voice just enough strength to bring the message on Sunday Night. I truly felt impressed by the Lord that the message that was brought Sunday was very needful at this time in our church.
Today starts a brand new month. Annually for our church, it is known as Stewardship Month. A steward is someone who cares for something that belongs to someone else. Everything that we have belongs to God and should be used for his glory. In Sunday School we will be talking about the sharing of stewardship. The theme of our lessons is using what God has given us to glorify Him. "Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God." (I Corinthians 11:6) We should pay attention to whether or not we are using what we have to glorify Him.
The weekend of November 13th we will have a guest missionary with us who is on deputation to go to the country of Jordan. Be in prayer for his safety as he travels here and remember that we will be taking a love offering for him in order to show our appreciation for his coming to present his work to us.
Lastly, dear church, I want to challenge us as a church to be a witness for the Lord Jesus Christ this week. This is what He has left us here to do. Find an opportunity to be a witness for Christ this week. Share a gospel tract, or share the gospel plan. Find some way to be a witness for God this. I am looking forward to seeing everyone in church this week, have a blessed day!
Sincerely in His service
Pastor Jonathan Painter
CHURCH PRAYER REQUESTS THIS WEEK
Pray for him as he has had to go back into the hospital this week. He is continuing to have issues with his pancreas. Pray that the doctors would have wisdom as they discern how to help him get back up on his feet again.
Mrs. Faith Painter
Pray for the remainder of her pregnancy to go well. Pray not only for her mobility in the late stages of her pregnancy but also for the baby to be born healthy and strong.
