Pastors and Ministers of the Church,
Greetings to you today in the wonderful name of our Lord Jesus. Today we give all honor and praise to our Lord, our one and only Great Shepherd, our King of Kings! We rejoice in the Lord! Rejoice in the Lord alway, and again I say rejoice. Ph. 4:4. In these days of Thanksgiving, may your thanks unto the Lord be for His saving grace and His mighty hand of shelter and strength (Prov. 18:10)
PA Conference and NE Summit – Developing Timothy’s
Thanks be to the Lord for His many blessings upon the recent Leadership meetings held in NY and PA. The congregations of Barkersville Christian Church (NY) and Living Waters Family Worship Center (PA), with Pastors Pat Atwell and Roy Tryon respectively, were most gracious in their hosting. Those coming together were blessed in encouragement to look to the days ahead with the confidence of knowing that the Lord God is with them always. All were challenged to see their capability to grow others as given to us within 2 Tim. 2:2…. “the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.” We look forward to this new season, as each congregation, and all ministers and pastors are seeking the Lord for guidance in developing others as Timothy’s. We will surely see the fruit of the work throughout the bounds of the Church Fellowship.
Disaster Relief Update
Many have immediately responded to the call for assistance into the land of the Philippines. Over the past week, Christ’s Chapel, lead congregation of Full Gospel Assemblies, has sent five shipping boxes of clothing, shoes and a variety of personal need items to the Taysan, Marinduque, and Capiz areas. Cash donations are now coming in from throughout the Fellowship. Friends and family of Full Gospel are pulling together in this moment of need. We are nearing $1000.00 received since the beginning of the drive for the typhoon victims of the Capiz area. Your continued monetary donations through the Fellowship will assist in the rebuilding of lives and the long term needs of the church community there that has suffered such great destruction. May the Lord bless every effort as we bring glory to His name.
Your Love Brings Joy
Our prayer today is that the love of God will shine through you, bring joy to others, as we cross over into the season of the celebration of the birth of our Savior, Christ Jesus. May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost. (Romans 15:13)
