Farewll Party for Eberhart's

This Sunday following the evening service, there will be a fellowship given by the Youth Department to say goodbye to Mitchell, Jennifer and Cole Eberhart. The family will soon be moving to the Fort Worth area. Jennifer has served as youth minister for the past several years at CBC. Their presence will certainly be missed. Our hearts are saddened by their move, but we pray God's blessings on them as they begin this new season in their lives. All friends and family of the Eberharts are invited to attend.

Welcome

Please accept our invitation to join us every week at Calvary Baptist Church for a unique worship experience.

Our music ministry includes praise and worship choruses as well as the beloved old hymns.

The messages proclaimed by Pastor Luke Smith proclaim God's love and are so relevant to the times in which we now live. There are Bible study groups for every age group, lead by very capable, dedicated individuals. If you are seeking a place to worship, why not give us the opportunity to know you and to share the love of Jesus with you?

 Sunday Review

We wished George Garner a happy birthday on the 10th and also happy anniversary to Jennifer and Charlie Oldaker on Aug. 11. At GABC we celebrate life and marriage as precious gifts from God.

Mary Friddell opened the Morning Worship with prayer. Connie Woolfe and her children Hannah, Landon and Stephanie sang a lovely song the children learned at camp, ”Ask the Blind Man: He Saw It All.” Our Minister of Music Benny Strong and our Pianist Suzanne Carpenter sang “He Looked Beyond My Fall and Saw My Need.” We are truly blessed with lovely music, which adds so much to our worship at GABC.

Rick Collett and Richard Hughes took up the offering as Suzanne Carpenter played “Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing.”

Bro. Bill Black's sermon was taken from I John 2:18-27. Many antichrists have come and gone, as have many false teachers. Evolution is taught as a fact in our schools while the name of Jesus cannot be mentioned. As a result, many are deceived. But John reminds us to let the truth abide in us and we will not be deceived.

Choice Stephens gave the benediction.

GABC is located on the east side of the 600 block of North Grand Avenue. Parking and entrances are on Clements Street on the east side of the church.

Vilott Baptist Church

Summer Time

Summer is nearly over as far as the school kids are concerned. We have had a very productive time during the break from academics. Vilott has seen many additions to the church family. The growth is welcomed, and we are prepared to handle the blessings.

Welcome

Vilott offers so much love and compassion. The doors are open so come inside and share with us. God has blessed us in a lot of ways this year. The message from God to us through His holy word has not changed. We are to go out and spread the Gospel. We are to love one another. In doing these things, God has blessed us.

We will continue to have something for everyone no matter the age. Sharing is more than a good feeling. We share the Gospel of Jesus Christ because we are told to. We are told to go into the world and share the Gospel of Jesus. Matthew 28:19-20 says, "Go ye therefore and teach all nations, baptizing them in the of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you; and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world."

Each Sunday morning we start with a fellowship breakfast at 9:30 a.m. Sunday school starts at 10 a.m. followed by the worship service at 11 a.m. with old time gospel music and singing praises unto the Lord.

We also have many prayer times. If you are in special need of prayer, let us know. There is not one excuse for not praying. It does not matter how old you are nor how feeble, you can pray. We have many prayer warriors in our church. We have seen so many healed of illnesses, jobs found, squabbles settled and most important, souls saved.

Matthew 21:22 says, "And all things that you ask in prayer, believing, you shall receive."

"I will, therefore, that men pray everywhere, lifting up hands without wrath and doubting" (1 Timothy 2:8).

Our Pastor Rick Isham brings a message from God. He is truly a man of God who loves the Lord and people. In recent weeks he has baptized several people. We know the Lord is in charge of his life. The fruits of his labor are known.

Vilott has so much to offer and share. Come join in with us at one of the many Bible studies and fellowships. There is no better time to be with your loved ones than at church learning what God's plan for you is.

Call the church if you need the services of our pastor at (940) 665-1629. We are located all around you!

Whaley United Methodist Church

Have you ever heard someone say, “Don’t ever make a promise that you cannot keep?"?

Many people think nothing about making and breaking promises all the time. It is very hard to establish or maintain any level of trust with a person like that. Would you describe them as faithful or unfaithful in their relationships and friendships?

Occasionally, people get angry with God because they believe God has broken promises, or has not answered some prayer made in desperation. But, if you will look at your relationship to God with absolute honesty, you will find that God does not make promises that He cannot keep….ever! God is faithful.

People often are victimized by the religious formulas hawked to them like the elixirs or “snake oil” of days long passed.

But, God does not deal in scams. God deals with spiritual truths that will stand up against the harshest realities of the human condition. God offers hope that cannot be bottled or sold.

You and your family are welcome at Whaley this Sunday to experience this God of faithfulness!
