Reminder! Men’s Day Retreat, Saturday, September 6, 8:00am-1:30pm in the Fellowship Center. Trey Morgan, our featured speaker, will discuss God’s Definition of Real Manhood: 1) ‘Man up’ in your relationship with God, 2) ‘Man up’ in protecting your family, and 3) ‘Man up’ in your marriage. Men of all ages are encouraged to join us for a time of fellowship as Trey challenges us to be the men God has called us to be. There is a $25 registration fee for the event, which includes two meals and a mid-morning snack. Sign up in your Bible class today. Contact Ronnie Roberts at email@example.com or Mike Gilbert at mikegilbert @wildblue.net for more information.
Wasn’t it exciting to see seventeen first graders receive their very own Bible last Sunday? They were indeed a “small army” as John so aptly described in his sermon. That small army now possesses the “sword of the Spirit” (Ephesians 6:17), the best weapon they could ever have for the spiritual warfare ahead.
In response to John’s challenge to pray for this small army in training, several have asked for a list of the children in order to pray for each one by name. So here is that list: Grace Blevins, Hudson Blevins, Wesley Bridges, Rayna Brown, Fielding Carey, Cooper Cumba, Ava Hamrick, Drew Haynes, Emelyn Hughes, Kaylenn Jackson, Reagan Lloyd, Jagger Montoya, Rylee Rickabaugh, Nathan Walters, Colten Whitefield, Parker Wiggains, and Aidan Windham. As we lift up these names to God, may we also remember the many others who have received a spiritual sword from this church in years past, in keeping with Paul’s exhortation in Ephesians 6:18 to “be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.”
You can help ‘change’ a child’s life! For the next three months you can make a daily contribution to the Foster’s Home for Children by putting your pocket change in the green collection can provided by the Home. Over the years, members of the Granbury Church of Christ have graciously given to this campaign.
The annual “Gleaning Campaign” funds the food and clothing needs of the children. Their 2014 goal is $55,000. With an average of 55-65 children in care, Foster’s Home needs your help. Get your change can from one of the Information Centers today. Take one to work. Put a can in your car or on the dinner table for the whole family. Place one in your Bible class and give together as a group to support these children.
Cans are due back in the church office on or before November 30.
