Pastor Bill’s Babbling Brook
Weekly Edition of Church News & Notes: 11.01.19
Veterans and First Responders Day Sunday, November 10 at 10:45
We owe a great debt of gratitude to those who have protected our freedoms and who keep us safe. Their willingness to sacrifice their comfort for our good deserves our recognition and our prayers. This particular Sunday we will honor them with a gift and we will ask God to continue to be with them. Please join us for this time of thanksgiving.
First Family Feast Sunday, November 10
Let’s do life together! We had such a good time eating together at Homecoming that we would like to do it again. This time we are invited to bring our favorite Soup, Salad or Sandwiches as we spend time enjoying a delicious lunch. Anne Shaw and MG Black are organizing this event. There will be a sign up sheet on Sunday in the foyer that we ask you to use. We want to make sure we don’t have too much on one item or not enough of another. I hope you will plan to attend.
Thanksgiving Groceries for Those In Need
Every year our Food Pantry provides all the groceries for a delicious Thanksgiving meal. Debbie Riley, our director of the Food Pantry, believes we will help 30 families this year which means we will need the following: turkeys, boxed stuffings, macaroni and cheese, corn, yams, and green beans. She also has provided a food pantry advent calendar that suggests ways to give. These are available in the foyer. Thank you for your faithful support of our benevolence ministry.
New Security Procedures
Our security team got together recently to discuss how we might improve our policy. Here are a couple of the changes. After 11 o’clock, all doors entering the sanctuary will be locked. Any late arrivals will be welcomed by our security team. We have also added walkie talkies so that security personnel can be in constant contact with each other. By state law, any concealed weapon carriers need to notify the pastor and a list will be given to our police officers. Luis Rivera has also offered to assist those who might want more practice on the range. Lastly, if there were ever to be an active shooter, Rodney Bayne and Luis Rivera will be in charge and we are to flee through the nearest exits.
From Pastor Bill
Sorry it has been a couple of weeks since the last babbling brook. Oddly enough, I had them done but I didn't get them sent. I am really encouraged by how the Lord is moving among us. The Homecoming service was inspiring and God touched people’s hearts this past week as well. It feels like God is on the move here at WCFN. I can't wait to see what He will do next. As far as prayer requests, Brandon and Kimberly Stokes' son Morgan is in the children's hospital. He is a precious newborn. May God touch in a mighty way. Rodney Bayne's dad and Carol Johnson are in the heart hospital. Joyce Yarbrough’s son-in-law Mike Linder is back in MUSC hospital. Please continue to remember Rod Dinkins and Ben Pearman as they battle cancer and the Moores, the Halls, Lindsay Sulser’s mom, Terry Hook's mom, Janice Lewis, Charlotte Sanders, Harold Finley, Ray Wright and Robert Hyatt as the face health issues. Don’t forget that worshipping God with fellow believers is key to spiritual growth. Please join us on Sunday as we look at chapter eight of the story Bible which deals with Judges.
