News for October 2022

The last supper meeting of the season was held September 15, with Tim Radford speaking. He presented a very interesting insight into his responsibilities. 

Fall decorations accented the tables, decorated by Frank and Helen Wilson. Helen shared a devotional on making our lives count for the Lord.

Recipient of our newly instituted "Senior Moment traveling trophy" was Helen for getting dates mixed up. And don't we all get confused with those?!?!

Next month ~ Thursday, October 20, we plan to take a field trip to Mercier's Orchard. We'll plan to leave the church at 11:00 a.m., and have lunch at the orchard. Then we can shop for some yummy apples and other apple items to take home with us.

Pray for Johnnie Brock in the recent passing of her husband; continue to pray that Jim and Pat Lancaster's daughter and granddaughter can get a kidney donated soon. Remember those with ongoing needs like Gay and Fred West, Neal and Modean McKeehan, Ralph and Charlotte Clutton, and Mack and Jeannie Huscusson. Pray for the folks in the Ukraine ~ the safety of our Christian brothers and sisters there, and those offering aid. Also pray for the persecuted church around the world, including in America. Pray for those who were affected by the storms in Florida.

Others still needing prayer include Priscilla Cope, Shelby O'Neal, Burke and Diane West, Dana and Laurie Jones, Ronney Craig, Bill and Nancy Huffines, June Brooks, Cricket Gray, Marilyn Raxter, Pat Sealy, and Linda Graham. Remember to pray for the Personnel Committee as they seek a youth pastor for our church. Pray for those who are working with the youth, for our church's financial needs, and for continued unity in working together to further the Kingdom of God. Pray for Pastor Calvin and his family, deacons and their families, Jennifer Farr and musicians, teachers, and leaders in the various Sunday ministry and Wednesday evening classes, and each one who has a unique part in making Andrews First Baptist Church a lighthouse for Jesus. 

Remember our college students, high school and middle school students, and those in elementary school, as well as teachers and staff, that they may let their lights shine for Jesus. Don't forget to pray for our military as they protect our freedoms, and pray that their families may be reunited soon, too.

Happy Fall, Y'All!
