An Encouraging Word from Marvin
This Sunday promises to be a “red-letter” day for our fellowship. We will honor and remember all those who are or were related to First Baptist who have served or are serving in the United States Armed Forces. We have veterans of World War II who worship with us weekly. We have people who went to Korea, Viet Nam, the Gulf Wars and other places on the globe. They enrich our lives through their service and commitment to the cause of freedom. I hope you will be here on Sunday as we give thanks to God and to these heroes and heroines for their service.
In the 11 AM service our Congressman, Dr. Phil Roe, will join us to honor our veterans. We will dedicate a flag to them in both services. In addition, we will continue our look at “A Generous Life” by considering how our lives “touch” others through our personal service. It should be a memorable day.
Autumn seems to have been late arriving in our region. The colors have been somewhat tardy and muted but they still remind us of the changing nature of life. I hope you are aware of the good changes that come when we serve God through FBC. In the early days of 2018 we will think about how this fellowship of believers has touched us. I hope you will begin thinking “thankfully” even before Thanksgiving comes!
I look forward to seeing you on Sunday as we gather again in our Sanctuary to worship God,
