Have you ever been ‘volunteered’? Did you ever think that this might just be a call to action by God for you? When we volunteer, we are selfless… helping one or many. As we slowly ease our way back to “normal”, won’t you please consider volunteering? Many need us – NOT the least your church and your community.

In our small church, we could use a Sunday School teacher, a Children’s message person and more choir members. We also need more mission-oriented folks. In cooperation with Department of Children’s Services; we are currently involved in building beds for families whose child/ children do not have a bed(s). If Ever a need needed to be met, it would be this one!

Ever notice that your congregation is always looking for ways to serve the Lord? We need volunteers in all of these areas – even temporary volunteers - as in a young lady granddaughter who’s just visiting; but she’s already volunteered to sing a solo for us during these pandemic times! If we ever get back to “normal”; she’s asked about teaching a Sunday School class, too. Join her, won’t you, in serving the Lord?

It’s important to share your blessings/ talents/time with your community... maybe as large as bed building or as large as just sitting with someone, lending emotional support.

Hebrews 13:16

“And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.”

Proverbs 3:27 “Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to act.” Catchy little phrase, “when it is in your power to act”… Please, “act” – put your Christian faith into action – singing God’s praises as you work (whistle while you work - LOL)

First Baptist Farmerville

Bro. Kurt’s message, “Focused on Prayer,” is based on Philippians 4:4-7. “4 Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice. 5 Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand. 6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. 7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” (King James Version)

The Apostle Paul is closing out his letter to the Church. Both are going through persecution and struggles. Throughout his letter, he has emphasized, over and over, living with joy. He tells them to rejoice! Be gentle and controlled. Trust the Lord. And pray – giving thanks and making your requests. Then God’s Word tells us if we do this, peace will be in our life.

Prayer is something so simple - yet SO powerful. In fact, it may seem too easy, and we sometimes don’t take its power seriously. Maybe we’re looking for something dramatic to take place, for someone to do or say something to restore peace in our lives. Maybe we are looking to the wrong things or the wrong people.

Church, look to God. With faith and trust in Him, joining ourselves in the work of God through prayer, we realize we don’t have to “fix it”, God can! We are to go before the Lord in prayer for healing, for peace, for making decisions, concerning an enemy, for opportunity, for salvation, for strength, for patience. Go before the Lord in prayer with requests for yourself and others.

Even when life is hard, and everything around us seems to be falling apart, we have a God of all power and control watching over our lives! In a time when it is very hard to trust anything today, we can be thankful that we can trust God!

Focus on God through prayer and be persistent. “And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” There is peace in Jesus, even in the storm.

During the transition to normalcy, we will continue to offer multiple opportunities to worship together. For more information, visit our website, www.fbcfarmerville.com or our Facebook page. Our address is 400 North Main, Farmerville; phone 318.368-3848.

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

Practically every major world event for decades, possibly for centuries has brought “new interpretations” of the Revelation letter relating to that particular circumstance. The current Corona pandemic is no exception. Wars, individuals, natural disasters, etc., have supposedly been the fulfillment of the prophecies in the Revelation letter. These have come and gone and new occurrences bring new predictions.

Obviously little attention is given to the letter’s introduction stating that John’s vision was “signified” or revealed in symbolic language. Literal interpretations are forced on the figurative symbols in order to conform to established beliefs. Neither is any significance placed on the writer repeatedly stressing that the fulfillment to the prophecies was “at hand” or would “shortly come to pass” soon after the revelation (Revelation 1:1; 1:3; 22:6; 22:10)

How would a letter written to encourage first-century Christians who were about to face persecution under the Roman government be beneficial if its fulfillment was thousands of years in the future? A good rule to follow when studying the Revelation letter is to remember it is in perfect harmony with the preceding sixty-five books in the Bible. No interpretation that ignores or contradicts any Old Testament prophecy or New Testament truth can be true. Much confusion could be avoided by becoming familiar with the remainder of Scripture and understanding that the majority of the letter is “signified” and would find its fulfillment shortly after it was written.

Liberty Missionary Baptist Church – Spearsville

We are still studying the book of Amos, where he tells of God’s judgment and compassion. We need to follow Amos in intercessory prayer for others and in obeying the Lord’s commands rather than persons – even those in leadership roles. We need to remain faithful to God as we face opposition in our time.

Bro. Brandon brought the message Sunday night and challenged us to be the witnesses God expects us to be. We had our monthly fellowship afterwards.

We have had several out sick and want them to know they are in our prayers and that we miss them.

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

We invite others to come worship with us.

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.

“I’ve got Peace, Love, Joy like the river in my soul.” It was so good to be back in the Sanctuary to worship. Yes, it is right, one can worship anywhere; however, it is true when they said unto me, let me go into the house of the Lord.

The Morning Message was on Psalm 16. How does God hold us in the palm of His hands? First, He counsels us – I will bless the LORD, who has given me counsel. The Holy Spirit speaks to us by bringing to mind what we have previously learned, as well as through prayer. Second, He steadies us – Because He is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. We can find peace through times of prayer and as we lift up our voice in praise to Him. James 5:13 – Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing psalms. Even in times of sorrow or loss, we can find hope in Jesus. Third, He stays with us, promising to never leave us or forsake us. Lastly, He fills us. You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore. Taking His spiritual pen as only God can do, He engraves His Son’s Spirit and His attitude into our hearts in order for us to live like Him.

“I’m looking now across the river, where my faith will end in sight. There’s just a few more days to labor.

Then I will take my heavenly flight.”
