A DISCIPLE’S DELIBERATIONS
THE SANCTUARY RENOVATION VOTE will take place this Sunday morning (August 21). The printed motion has been available for two weeks now, and we have had the opportunity to thoroughly consider it. I want to ask you to pray fervently over this decision. Some may ask, “Why vote on Sunday morning?” First, we want to be open, fair, and respectful. Our meetings have been stimulating, and every person has had the chance to share. Sunday mornings are our most-attended service. Second, we will be asking each member to share in the work through prayer support and financial support, so each member has the responsibility to vote, even those who have not attended the business meetings. Finally, we are seeking unity under the Spirit of God. I would pray that this vote would be unanimous. We will vote by secret ballot, so it will definitely take an “act of God” to be unanimous. However, even if it is not unanimous, then I pray that we will move together to accomplish the work of God at FBC, Columbia.
SUMMER SUNDAY EVENINGS WITH “ANDY” will continue this week (August 21) and conclude next Sunday (August 28). Fellowship times will follow both services. This Sunday we will have hot dogs and hamburgers after the service, so plan to join us. Then, on August 28....read more here
