From the Pastor
So far, all of the hurricane Ida local reports coming in from our folks are, “Little to no damage, lots of limbs in the yard, a few near misses from trees, a damaged fence or 2, no power, scary night, dang tornado warnings!, and praises to God for seeing us through….again.” Although we rejoice knowing that had Ida shifted a little bit to the east our situation could have been a lot worse, we hurt for our neighbors in Louisiana who bore the brunt. Please pray for them. Over the next several days we will be communicating ways we can help provide relief and recovery.

Please pray earnestly for our revival services that are scheduled for September 19-22. Former RPBC Minister of Youth, Jeremy Montgomery, will be our guest evangelist. Our music evangelist will be Greg Woodward, Chair of the Church Music Ministries Program at NOBTS. Please mark these dates on your calendar and plan to attend!

 Although Ida caused us to cancel our on-campus services this past Sunday, I hope you were able to worship with us via our streamed service. I continued with the series of messages on “Holiness,” using Lot as an example of a beacon of holiness. A beacon can either guide or warn. In the case of Lot, it warns. As a follow-up to that message, a passage I read today from the biography of Rees Howells, a great prayer warrior from the last century, drives home the point: “But before [the Holy Spirit] can lead a chosen vessel into such a life of intercession, He first has to deal to the bottom with all that is natural (worldly). Love of money, personal ambition, natural affection for parents and loved ones, the appetites of the body, the love of life itself, all that makes even a converted man live unto himself, for his own comfort or advantage, for his own advancement, even for his own circle of friends, has to go to the cross…The self must be released from itself to become the agent of the Holy Spirit.” 
Praying for you!
