Newsletter of October

Sunday, October 4th, 2009

Dear church family,

Sometimes I wonder if things will ever slow down. We sure have been busy. I hope you have set aside October 11th through October 14th for revival. We need this time, as individuals and as a church, to stop and listen to what God has to say to us. In order to experience revival, we must pray! We must become personally concerned about people and where they are going to spend eternity. We must be open to the power of the Holy Spirit and allow Him to work in our lives and in the life of our church. “Be still, and know that I am God . . .” (Psalm 46:10).

Living for Jesus, Bro. Royce
