With current events, do we feel ratcheted up to our highest tolerance levels… with quarantines, illnesses, the loss of friends and loved ones, shut downs and closures, school uncertainties and of course the ever on-going cycle of elections? In the middle of these times; do you remember that Jesus, the Father and the Holy Spirit are “always” with us, to guide us - to comfort us?

Remember that God tells us to Not be afraid. “Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you...” Isaiah 41:10

“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer….” Philippians 4:6

Maybe offer up this prayer from Hope for the Broken Hearted.com: “Dear Lord, thank you for this new day and for keeping me safe through the night. Please protect my heart and mind today. Help me to rise above the negativity, harshness and division that seems to be taking over our world. Help me to focus my thoughts on things that are right, pure and true. Help me to be slow to anger. Please give me your wisdom and fill me with your peace. May I show the same grace to others that you show to me. In Jesus’ name I pray.”

Psalm 33:11-12 “The plans of the Lord stand firm forever, the purposes of His heart through all generations. Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.” God’s plan does not begin and end with a single person. His plans may span centuries, but He still has a plan.

“When the time is right, I the Lord, will make it happen.” Isaiah 60:22

First Baptist Farmerville

First Baptist Church Farmerville welcomes you! We offer two worship services every Sunday morning at 400 North Main. The 9 AM service is suitable for senior adults and higher-risk attendees, and masks are required throughout the service. At the 11 AM service, a mask is required upon entering and exiting the building and while moving around the sanctuary.

Bro. Kurt continues his sermon series of the original Church, contrasting it with the modern church. “Unity: All Things in Common” focuses on Acts 2:41-45.

We saw last week that in the early Church, believers met together daily for study, communion, fellowship and prayer. They were meeting each other’s needs and sharing life together. God still intends for us to be a source of encouragement, knowledge, wisdom, support and strength to one another.

Upon reading the biblical account of the beginning of the Church, one thing really jumps out – they were together almost continually, caring for one another, recognizing and filling each other’s needs. With the introduction of social security and welfare, America began to infringe upon these primary functions of the Church. The end result has been that the ministry of caring for one another has diminished to an alarming degree.

Luke uses two phrases to describe the Acts church: “Together” and “All things in common.” How many of us can say that we have all things in common with anyone? Most husbands and wives can’t even say that. How is that even possible? From sharing life in the same way, with the same important ideas and goals.

What were they doing that was building such a sense of unity? They were devoted to the Word of God. They were committed to learning His Truth. God’s Word promises to do a work in our lives. It makes us stronger and lights our path. It draws us to a common focus: our Lord and our God.

The natural progression of this unity is a deeper fellowship with one another. This is the idea of companionship and friendship. These are the people we share life with - our family in Christ, driven by His Truth. Come join us!

First Baptist Church — Marion

In the 60’s a magazine cover said “God Is Dead.” As the world spins in chaos some may wonder if that is true. At FBC Marion there is manifold evidence that God is alive,

Jesus lives and the Holy Spirit continues to work. Ask Michael Thomas, Dustin Andrews, Shep Towns or Sawyer Towns if Jesus still saves. Three great weeks of baptizing and watching God work in the midst of all Satan is trying to do shouts “God Is Not Dead.” Bro. Bubba preached today from II Samuel 10. David and his people were vastly outnumbered for battle. Surely they must have felt as Christians today do looking at what seemed to be a hopeless situation. They didn’t know whether they would be temporarily defeated or whether God would amazingly deliver them. Listen to what they said in II Samuel 10:12, “Be of good courage, and let us play the men for our people, and for the cities of our God; and the Lord do that which seemeth Him good.” Our purpose as Christians is to be courageous and live like warriors in the Army of God and leave the results to Him. Take heart fellow Christians, “He’s got the whole world in His hands.”

Catch FBC Marion on our Facebook page, you tube or Bayou Cable.

PRAY FOR EACH OTHER, OUR CHURCH, OUR NATION, AND OUR LEADERS.

Haile Church of Christ

Many have been led to believe Christ established His church during His personal ministry. Does reasoning from Scripture support this view? Jesus lived and died under the Mosaic Law with its Levitical priesthood, but the cross ended the Old Law (Colossians 2:14). A change in the priesthood meant a change in the law (Hebrews 7:12). Jesus became a High Priest over the house of God (Hebrews 10:21) under the New Covenant. The church is the temple of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 6:19), but the Spirit was not given before Jesus returned to heaven and was glorified (John 7:39). The church consists of those called out by the gospel (2 Thessalonians 2:14) and the gospel was preached in fact after Jesus died, was buried and arose (1 Corinthians 15:1- 4) Only following the apostles receiving the promised Spirit on Pentecost after Jesus’ glorification could the gospel be preached by inspiration (Acts 2:4). Before Jesus’ death there was no purchasing price for the church (Acts 20:28), and before He arose He could not be head over His church (Ephesians 1:18-23). Baptism by Jesus’ authority is into His death (Romans 6:4) or into His body, the church (1 Corinthians 12:13). Jesus commissioned baptism following His resurrection (Matthew 28:18-20; Mark 16:16). Knowledge of Scripture accompanied by reason concludes that the establishment of Christ’s church during His personal ministry under the Mosaic Law was an impossibility.

Wed. Bible Study, Oct. 14th, Bro. Dan’s message was from 1 John Chapter 4. (9) In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.

Sunday School, Oct. 18th, Bro. Paul taught us from John Chapter 7:13-58 and Chapter 8:1- 4. (7:23) If a man on the sabbath day receive circumcision, that the law of Moses should not be broken; are ye angry at me, because I have made a man every whit whole on the sabbath day?

Worship Service, Oct. 18th, started with a beautiful song from Bro. Robert. Bro. Dan’s message was from Ecclesiastes Chapter 11: 1-5 and Luke Chapter 6:38. (11:2) Give a portion to seven, and also to eight; for thou knowest not what evil shall be upon the earth.

“Giving “. You can never go wrong reaching out, sharing and caring. Reach out to the needs of others.

Luke 6:38, Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.

You’ll never regret a day you live for Jesus.

Sunday Evening, Oct. 18th, Bro. Dan’s message was from Ecclesiastes Chapter 12:1-3 & 13-14. (1) Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not , nor the years draw nigh, when thou shall say, I have no pleasure in them;

“Rejoice in Your Youth”.

(13) Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. (14) For God shall bring every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.

Thursday, Oct. 15th was “Ladies Night “ at Ol’Hickory. There was a great turnout and several upcoming events were decided on. First, LMBC will have a Trunk a Treat on Oct. 31st starting at 4:00pm. Second, there will be a Church yard sale on Sat. Nov. 14th. I’m unsure of all the details for the yard sale at this time , but will follow with details next week.

Third, Nov. 22nd LMBC will be having Thanksgiving Fellowship immediately following Worship Service.

Bro. Casey and Sis. Vickie volunteered their services and painted the Fellowship room and entry of LMBC. It has been needing painting for a while now and they did a great job!

We will be meeting in the parking lot of Liberty Baptist Church in Linville at 8 a.m. on September 26th to repent and pray for our communities and our nation.

Liberty Missionary Baptist Church – Spearsville

Liberty Church Road, Spearsville

Bro. Bill Styron, Pastor

We began our meeting in the fellowship hall with coffee and our SS lesson from Acts 14 where we are encouraged to remain faithful to Christ’s calling even though we may endure persecution. Satan uses discouragement as a tool to keep us from serving Christ. Our efforts in serving Christ often meet resistance, which causes discouragement and the temptation to quit.

Bro. Gus sang “I Bowed on my Knees” and Bro. Bill sang “Sin Will Take You Farther”.

Bro. Bill took the morning message from Jeremiah 30. Sin leads to bondage. Bondage can be in our minds. So often we don’t think about God; we dwell on other things around us. Like the prodigal son, if we turn to God, He will receive us with open arms. There is only one cure for sin – it’s God. God can heal all wounds no matter how bad they are.

We have Sunday School at 10; worship time at 11; evening study at 5:30; and Wednesday night Bible Study at 6. We invite you to come grow in God’s Word and fellowship with us as we keep pressing on for Jesus.

My Father’s House

My Father’s House Teach one to be one. Jesus was with the disciples for three years. He was with them 40 days before going to heaven. If you have read Acts 1 and 2 you would know this. The promise of God was given to Jesus and the promise was fulfilled. The Holy Spirit came upon the disciples and the preaching began. Jesus had made it clear that there would be false teachers. Jesus said also, the way is narrow that leads to life and few find it. T12B1 will make disciples of Jesus, disciples of Jesus get to know God. In Matthew 5 Jesus opened his mouth telling them about the kingdom of heaven. The faithful disciples will inherit the earth. Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness. In Matthew 6, Jesus gave instructions on how to get something from God our father. The disciples learned from the teacher for God to forgive, one must forgive according to Jesus. Jesus taught the disciples about the eye. He told them about log and specks. He mentioned hypocrites. In verses 6 and 7 Jesus explains the law and the prophets. Jesus told them about trees and how to recognize them. Have you read his words beware of false prophets, they will come to you in sheep clothing. Don’t forget this. Join Joseph at My Father’s House at 4774 Highway 151 Downsville, La 71234. For more information call or text 318-620-9293.

Pleasant Grove Baptist - Downsville

Rocky Branch Baptist Church

Associate Pastor: Stephen Murry

News: Brenda Pace People crowding around Jesus, which was not uncommon. In desperation the woman worked her way through the crowd. If only she could touch the hem of His garment. She had heard He could heal. She had tried everything else, everyone else. Because of the Law, she could not even go to the Temple for encouragement. Maybe Jesus will be the answer. After all, He had given sight to the blind, caused the lame to walk and even cured the lepers. (Mark 5)

Many today need a touch from Jesus. Maybe you are in a helpless situation, and you have tried everything else. The need may be physical healing, healing in a marriage, in a relationship, in finances, etc. Maybe you have grown indifferent to things of God, moving away from Jesus. Our faith may not be perfect, but it is sufficient. The woman’s persistence, as she pushed her way through the crowd, was rewarded with healing. We, too, must go to Jesus with what is going on in our lives. And once we have been ‘healed’, we should tell others about Jesus and what He has done for us. We, too, must desire to ‘touch’ Him spiritually, so we can know Him fully. We too need to reach out to the Master.

We took time to recognize Bro. Terry Mims and Stephen Murry, Associate Pastor. Hopefully each church meeting, have strived to do so as well this month set aside for Pastor’s Appreciation. Such a tough time for them to minister and preach the Word of God. But so many, like our pastor, have remained faithful to their calling from Him.

Church Services: Sunday School – 9:45 a.m. Worship 10:45 a.m.; 6 p.m. Wednesday service – 6:30 p.m.
