Newsletter: Week of 08/27/2008

Dear Church Family,

Well it’s almost here! Our church will celebrate 100 years of serving our Lord Jesus Christ on September 7th. I hope you are planning on being here. We will not have the 8:45 am Worship Service; instead, we will start our celebration at 10 AM in the auditorium. It will be a very exciting day.

In the last few weeks, I’ve asked myself what would our founding fathers think of church today? More important, what does Jesus think? We do a lot of activities, and we have to be sure our motives are right. Are we doing these things so God will receive glory and honor from it? Are we doing these things so others will come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ? We have to do the work while we can. Jesus said in John 9:4, “I must work the works of Him that sent me, while it is day; the night cometh, when no man can work.” We have to do the work, but we must be sure we are doing it for the right reasons! Let’s leave a legacy for our children and grandchildren of God’s faithfulness and love!

Living for Jesus, Bro. Royce
