Happy Thanksgiving Kelleytown Church Family,
I am increasingly aware of how fast time passes. In some ways it seems like my family and I just got here and in other ways and because of other circumstances it seems like we’ve been here a long time already. In either case, I’m so thankful to be here serving alongside of you. I pray you and your family have a blessed Thanksgiving. There are so many different ways this time can pass us by, but my desire is to see these days come and go with a heavenly perspective. I want to be more aware than ever of the goodness, faithfulness, and sovereignty of King Jesus in my life and in this world we live in. I pray that your conversations will point people to Christ Jesus. That you will remind people of the reality that our Heavenly Father loves them, and that He is the same today as He has always been. Hallelujah! What a Savior.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 says, “Rejoice always, pray constantly, give thanks in everything; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” Think about those three things for a moment: 1) rejoice always, 2) pray always, and 3) give thanks always. It appears that you and I are to do these things ALWAYS, no matter what. I can’t begin to imagine the difference we would see when we look in the mirror and out the window if Christ followers would do these three things. #JustDoIt
I wanted to remind you that we will back in the sanctuary for worship this coming Sunday, November 29, 2020 for worship. The first service will begin at 9am and is masks required. The second service will begin at 10:30am and masks are optional. We have purchased a “fogger cleaner” to help sanitize the facility between the services so we would ask that you exit the building as quickly as possible after the first service, and not come extremely early for the second service. We will continue to do all we can to provide a clean and safe environment for our church family and guests to worship the Lord Jesus each week. If you would like to help with the cleaning please contact your deacon or the church office.
We will be having a business meeting on Wednesday December 9 at 6:30pm. We have received a request to give additional assistance to a young lady, Katie Wyrick, who is servicing as CRU (Campus Crusade for Christ) missionary. She has almost reached her fundraising goal, but has come up short and cannot go to her assigned field, Clemson University, until she is fully funded. KBC has already given her some support from our church budget, and we have some designated accounts that could be used to complete her need and send her on her way to serve the Lord. Please make plans to attend this meeting. At that time, I will also continue with our Bible study through 1 Thessalonians.
As of our last deacons meeting, we have decided to begin some of our Wednesday evening activities in January (6th). We will be starting back with our kid’s activities, youth Bible study, and adult Bible study, but we will not have the Wednesday evening meal just yet. I hope you will make plans to attend these midweek worship and fellowship opportunities.
God bless you. I love you.
