Dreams Realy Do Come True

July 18, 2017

This past Sunday we had a prayer send-off for a group of our young people who are embarking on a mission to demonstrate God’s love to those who might never experience it otherwise.
The group of 13 of our youth, Pastors Michael Bartlett and Tommy Chester, and a number of adult helpers, are traveling to Orlando, FL to work with two organizations to help people who are in dire need. The organizations are: “Habitat for Humanity” and “Give Kids the World.”
You are probably familiar with “Habitat for Humanity” and their efforts to help provide homes to families who are either homeless or cannot afford a decent place to live and raise their children. Our young people will be sharing their hearts and their great energies to build such a home.
Our youth will also be working with “Give Kids The World Village”, which is an 84-acre, nonprofit “storybook” resort in Central Florida. There, children with life-threatening illnesses and their families are treated to weeklong, cost-free vacations. Our youth will be sharing their lives and their great compassion by reaching out and bringing joy and hope where it is sometimes in very short supply. We are proud of youth who are ready to jump in to work and share freely what God has given them.
This group would not have been able to make this journey without your support. Your monetary gifts (totaling just over $1900) given at the close of the service Sunday made the trip possible. Just as needful are the prayers you prayed (and will continue to pray) for God to bless and enable your youth to impact the lives of many others.
This past Sunday was another great day of worship! We featured the great singer, Jerry Hannah, singing the unforgettable song, “It Takes A Mountain.” It really touched our hearts.
In both services people streamed to the front for prayer for healing and deliverance. Testimonies of healing are already coming in. Sunday ended on another high note as we welcomed our new members with a reception in the fellowship hall. This is one of the strongest groups of new members we have had, demonstrated by their eagerness to jump in and serve in a variety of ministries.
This Sunday I will continue the study of Revelation on “Christ’s Message to the Seven Churches/” Come & invite a friend.

Your Pastor,
John Hedgepeth
