  Greetings in the Name of Jesus Christ!


        Greetings in the name of Jesus Christ!

            Here we are moving into a new month.  It’s been hot enough that I’ve been tempted to bring out some good sermons on hell.  Maybe this heat teaches us that Heaven will be far better.  May Jesus continue to be our Lord, Savior, and Redeemer as we look forward to The Day when He returns!  Until then, may God’s Holy Spirit guide us as we run the race set before us!
            I’m thinking and praying about studies for the fall.  Here’s what I’m thinking:
            We will be doing a Wednesday night, purely Bible Study at 6:00 p.m. in the Parlor.  We could do a study of Ephesians and take a semester.  Or we could study the Book of Revelation and take the fall and spring.
            Another study I’m thinking about is doing a Sunday evening study, maybe 5:30 to 7:00 p.m., that will take us into some personal growth areas.  A couple of times over the past few weeks I’ve asked if you can share your faith with people.   Then I asked the question, “Would you like to learn how?”  So, what I’m thinking of studying is a little, but powerful book entitled, The Master Plan Of Evangelism, by Dr. Robert Coleman.  We would take a semester to do this study.  I listen to this book on Audio Books in the car when I drive the highways.  It’s a good book.  Mikey Litau has been using this book with the students at the Wesley Foundation at West Texas A&M University with great success.  When those students come out of college they know how to share their faith. 
            I’ll have a bulletin insert starting August 12th.  Until then I hope you’ll be praying about if any of these studies is for you. 
            Remember to be praying for the special, called General Conference February 23-26, 2019           

May God abundantly bless you and yours!


Peace like a river,
Rusty Dickerson
