SEPTEMBER 1, 2014
Last Wednesday evening at business meeting, Dr. Burn Page was officially called as Pastor of Alta Woods Baptist Church, removing the Interim from his title. His duties will remain preaching on Sundays and Wednesdays. The church's Transition Committee had decided that the next pastor needed to be bi-vocational, with church responsibilities of preaching only. Visitation, counseling, hospital calls, funerals, committee meetings, administration of staff, etc., would continue to not be his responsibility. September 7, this Sunday morning, from 8:30 am-9:15 am, there will be a Breakfast Reception in the foyer by the flag pole entrance, officially welcoming and honoring Burn and Annice.
Following the reception, you will go on to Sunday School at the normal 9:15 am time.
Grace Community Church continues to meet each Sunday from 10:00 am to 12:00 noon in our East Room. These are some of the finest young Christians you will meet. I know our worship times are simultaneous, so perhaps after church some Sunday you could hang around a few minutes and meet some of them. They are excited about meeting in our facility. They are also using two of our preschool rooms for their babies, creepers and toddlers. Our facilities meet their needs perfectly.
MY HOPE WITH BILLY GRAHAM 2014
Like last year, the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association is partnering with churches and individuals all over America to reach people with the gospel of Jesus Christ. The 30-minute program, Heaven, will feature powerful, real-life stories and a never-before-released message from Billy Graham. Like last year, Dvd's will be available from BGEA for churches and individuals to show this message to neighbors, friends, and relatives.
Pray and ask God how He would use you to reach your friends with this outstanding message about God's love and His plan of redemption and reconciliation.
