Worship is man’s full reason for existence. Worship is why we are born and why we are born again.

"I'm gonna wear a crown, gonna wear a crown....." - way to go choir!  You did a great job opening our service last Sunday with "I Shall Wear A Crown."  What a great day it was as we sang some great songs together, heard the Word preached with power and also heard a testimony from the ministry of the Gideons.  I was so blessed to hear that over $2000 was received for that ministry in our special offering on Sunday.  What a blessing to be a part of a church that invests in seeing that the Word of God is distributed around the world.

This Sunday, I'd like to open the service with the choir singing "Arise."  We'll also join Julie later in the service singing "It Is Well."  The following Sunday, October 25, the orchestra will play "Nothing But the Blood" and the choir will sing "Cry Holy" with Chelsey.  Then on Sunday, October 2, we'll honor our law enforcement personnel with Back the Blue Sunday.  Our county sheriff will be here and we'll also have a guest preacher, Leroy Fountain from New Orleans Baptist Association.  The orchestra will open the service that day with "When the Saints Go Marching In."  Then on October 9, we'll be observing the Lord's Supper in our morning service.  The choir will sing "Through the Cross" that day as we remember the sacrifice of Christ for us.  That's the schedule for the next few weeks - I hope you'll be there for each service.

Christmas music is in your folders!  Believe it or not, we are ready to begin working on music for our 2016 musical on December 11 with Keron Jackson.  You'll find some songs we've done before along with a few that we will be singing with Keron as he shares about his life.  If you have not yet done so, I encourage you to go to YouTube and search for "Keron Jackson - my story."  You'll enjoy hearing a brief version of what he will share with us.  Begin praying now that the Lord will use CHRISTMAS WITH KERON to bring glory to His name and to change lives.
