THE WEEKLY: Fall Fling, Titus 2, Women’s Retreat

Family,

This past Sunday, the sermon was about making a difference. How are things going? Are praying over your five people that you want to help know the love of Jesus? Remember you can do this by:

  • Using what you have
  • Inviting someone to church
  • Sharing your story

If you weren’t at church this past Sunday, you can listen to the sermon HERE for examples and practicals on how you can do each of these things.

And if you need help…we have some GREAT, visitor-friendly opportunities coming up that you can take advantage of!

Downtown Service Request: We need someone to take the tape downtown this coming Sunday. If you would like help, please contact Lincoln Gifford (314-653-1615).

Baby Blair Update: Matthew and Simara will be going home today, but Matthias will be staying a little longer while he is treated for a bacterial infection. The doctors expect that he will be released next week. Under the doctor’s recommendation, the Blairs are asking for no visitors for now; they will welcome friends once the whole family is home safe and sound. Thank you for your prayers!
