Yesterday was an exciting day as we welcomed the Cloy family: Jeremiah & Amanda with sons Wesley, and Hunter & Jaxon Harrelson! Other members of the family include sons Sawyer Harrelson and Owen Cloy. Please take time to introduce yourself to them as you make them feel welcome.
We are blessed to have so many “givers” at RPBC! Here are a few ways your giving has recently made a difference:
- Your continued faithfulness in tithes and offerings during these unusual times.
- The loan of a twin bed to assist the Gaddys.
- All of the money needed to upgrade our Sanctuary projection system with large-screen LED monitors has been given.
- Numerous donations of supplies and money to assist with Hurricane Laura relief.
Thank you for your generosity in being a Giver!
I also want to commend you for your tremendous response to my challenge to establish a prayer partner ministry. So far we have over 60 people who have signed up, and more are expected. There is no limit to the number who can participate in this ministry. My new goal is 100! If you have not yet committed, please complete one of the purple prayer partner cards available in the Sanctuary or church office! You may contact Anita Kendrick, Edith Breland, or me for more information.
We are planning a 24-hour prayer vigil capped off by a prayer rally in support of Franklin Graham’s call for a Prayer March in Washington, D.C. on September 26th. Sign-up sheets for the prayer vigil will be made available this Sunday. The time slots will be ½ hour, and the vigil will run from 10:00am Friday, September 25th, to 10:00am Saturday, September 26th. We will then gather on the grass behind the Fellowship Hall at 11:00am Saturday, September 26th, for a prayer rally in behalf of our nation. You may visit PrayerMarch2020.com for more information on the Washington Prayer March. You may also order your own Prayer March 2020 T-shirt from that site, if you would like one. I will be sharing more information in the next week. I hope you will make plans to participate with us!
Supplies and cash donations are still being collected for the #hope4merryville hurricane Laura relief project. You may drop them by the church office anytime. A list of needed supplies will be posted on both the RPBC web and Facebook pages, or may be picked up at the church office. It can also be emailed to you upon request. Work teams will also be organized within the next few weeks. I will strive to keep you abreast of needs and efforts as information is made available to me.
A Mighty Fortress is Our God!
