Greetings to all in the name of the Lord. I have taken my arm out of the sling long enough to try and type this message. I want to begin by thanking all of my church family for your prayers during these past two months. Thankfully, I should be back to normal (please hold your comments on my normalcy) in a short while. Also, your cards and prayers were very much appreciated during my oldest brother’s passing. God bless you all.
For those of you who do not know, South Middleburg Baptist Church is the proud owner of a Chevy van that has been donated to the church by Bro. Tony Bradley and Sis. Sharon Bradley. I am in the process of having our name put on the van and then will deliver it to have transmission serviced and mechanical inspection done before it is put on the road. This van is an answer to many prayers and I want to publically thank the Bradley family from the bottom of my heart.
The addition to the front of the building has not been forgotten. Apparently the contractor is having trouble finding the right people to set the trusses. I want each of you to join me in praying that God will bless this endeavor and maybe have construction begin. I also want to clarify one thing. This addition will not be a “drive-thru” for the discharge/pick-up of passengers. If we are going to err, we will err on the side of caution. With children running in and out the front doors into an area where cars would be entering and exiting is the ingredients for disaster. Perhaps we can add a drive-thru on the Alligator Blvd. side of the church as funding permits.
Don’t forget our 5th Sunday sing on September 29th, 2013 @ 6:00 pm. Start practicing if you would like to sing a special that night. The sign-up sheet is on the bulletin board behind the choir loft. Also, our Fall Festival and Old Fashioned Day will be Saturday, October 26th, 2013 at 5:00 p.m. Get your bonnets, brogans and overalls! (I don’t have to change my wardrobe, every day is old fashioned day!)
That’s all for now. Please remember all of our sick in your daily prayers. This has been a tough year for many of our folks and they stand in special need of God’s blessing. Stay safe, stay diligent and stay active in His service.
