Family and Friends Day all day! What a time, what a time, what a time!
I want to start out by saying thank you to all who participated in Family and Friends Day. I am grateful for the privilege of worshiping with the New Paradisesians. You all are an extraordinary group of people…You are easy to love.
I am grateful that God has continued extending His traveling grace upon the Transportation Ministry week after week. I am grateful that He has blessed us to have a Church School that is truly equipping the people of God week after week. I am grateful that those who take part in Church School faithfully attend week after week. A big shout out to those who arrive at 8:30 a.m. for the 8:45 a.m. start of Devotion. The Church School lesson was from Acts 9:18-31, titled “A Dynamic New Voice.” I have the Privilege of teaching Class #6. Thank you to the teaching staff: Rhonda, Donnie, Robert, Renalda, AT, Marvin, Anita, Greg and Ken. You are greatly appreciated. Thank you Sis. Bush, Denise and Akida for keeping good records.
Thank you Dea. Ken Harrison for the Devotional Meditation. Thank you Rev. Pitre for the Call to Worship. Thank you Mother Richardson, Toni and Jasmine for welcoming the guest with beautiful, friendly smiles. Thank you EO for leading out in the Praise Period. Thank you Myra for the welcome. I want to thank NPBC for your gracious act of love and kindness for the gifts you presented to Gloria and I for our 31st Wedding Anniversary! Mother Joyce Ann Callahan Stidum, thank you for taking good care of Gloria and I. Thank you Rev. Davidson for leading out in the Offering. Thank you Rev. Pitre for Praying. As usual it is always great to have the Celebrities in Worship. God is blessing us to have your presence at NPBC. The Sermon was titled Laodicea: “The Unsaved Church” taken from Revelation 3:14-22 part 1. Lord willing, I will be finishing up on next Sunday. We were blessed to have Sheila Wilkinson unite with us! Welcome to New Paradise Sheila! Thank you all that serve in various capacities. It takes all of us to work together for the Cause of Christ.
We were not finishing worshiping the Lord God Almighty. Our Sister Church from Los Angeles came for our Annual Family and Friends Day. It is always a great time when NPBC and Prosperity get together. I love the fellowship between the 2 churches. I want to thank AT and Elizabeth for putting together a good order of worship. Thank you to all those who participated in the Family & Friends Day Worship Experience with Prosperity. Prosperity’s Choir did an outstanding job! And what can we say about Pastor Terrance Phillips? Wow! As usual, he blessed our hearts with his message, “Are You Any Good” from Matthew 5:13. A very special thank you goes to Crystal Dunn and workers for putting together the food for Prosperity & NPBC. We ended the day rejoicing, because the Lord is good. We are looking forward to going to Prosperity in March, If it is the Lord’s will. Thank you New Paradise for supporting the Family and Friends Day. God bless you!
Your servant in Christ,
