• Today, the church needs to be busy doing God’s work. First of all, we need to witness, as Jesus commissioned us to be fishers of men. If we witness, God will add power to us. We are to keep witnessing until Jesus comes again. Remember that’s what Jesus told us to do.
We are also to be united in one faith. Jesus promoted a unity among His followers, and He expects it of His followers today. This unity can lead to a growing population for God’s kingdom. Let us work and remember our destiny. The book of Revelation points us toward our ultimate destination.

• Aug. 7 - Potluck dinner after the morning service. Kathleen Daniels leads the Sunday services which begins at 11 a.m. Visitors are welcome.
• On Sunday, Pastor Pullens preached on “The ravens are still flying” (I Kings 17:4, 9). God commanded the ravens to bring sustenance to the man of God in a time when there was a famine in the land. There was a famine in the land because the people of Canaan worshiped the god Baal. This god was known for bringing rain, fertility of the land and no death among the believers. God wanted to prove that he was the one true God and there became a famine in the land, no rain and there was death. Just as the widow woman in I Kings was mentioned, she was a Baal worshiper. Just as God had commanded the ravens to feed the man of God, God did so with the widow woman. When you sustain the man of God, God will sustain you. Be sensitive to the voice of God because He just might want to use you.

• Bro. Puckett’s message was from I Corinthians 10: 12, “Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.” Christians must keep a clear and concise focus on the things of God. Not staying close to the church allows us to drift far from God and we will begin warming ourselves by the fires of the world. As we begin to lust after the things and pleasures of this world, we begin to distance from the Lord. When times get tough or we get tired, we, like the nation of Israel, begin to long for Egypt. They forgot the rigor and whip their taskmaster used on their backs. We cannot seek security in this world. Putting too much confidence in a job, a hobby, or even our home, can create a false security and become our God, but God will be there to rescue and help us regain our place in him.
