Friday Message


Agape Friday Message 4-11-14


“But he said to me, My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.  That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties.  For when I am weak then I am strong.”(2 Corinthians 12:9-10)

VBS Planning Kick Off is tomorrow, Saturday April 12 at 9:30am.  Join those who are eager to help this year in the weekend June 20-22.  A light breakfast will be served in Faith Hall.

Maundy Thursday and Good Friday are just around the corner.  These are important parts of our Easter celebration.  Maundy Thursday April 17, Agape will worship with Greater St. Stephen First Baptist Church at 6:30pm at their location at 3728 E. Berry St.  Our church and choir will lead in service of shadows.  On Good Friday, April 18, their congregation will worship with us at Agape.  Their choir and pastor will lead in the service at Agape at 6:30 pm Good Friday.  Easter Sunday each church will worship     at their own location.

There is a Mission Trip to Lima, Peru planned for July 5-12, 2014.  You will find information at the back of the worship center.  Tommy Bridges will be leading this trip.  See Tommy for further details and information.  Begin now to pray for this July mission Trip.

Ladies of the church if you find “BOX TOPS” on any of your food items, please  clip, collect and bring these to church for us.  We are working together to collect these items which help the elementary school in our area (small little pieces of paper).  One collection station is in the Kilgore Class in the back or the Worship Center .  Two other areas are in Henderson Hall.  One is in the office on 1st floor.  The second is in the hallway near the Huckaby Class.  Your help is greatly appreciated.

Those who will serve with our children during worship on Sunday April 13: Shellie Fairless, Melissa Shamburger, Joy Edwards.  Those serving April 20: Dean Ball, Charlene Bass, Jo Crawford.

Please be in prayer for guidance in the activities and needs of our church.  Please remember to pray for our youth and those who serve there.  Lift up your ITT team as they work with Brother Dean and the many opportunities for service.  Pray for the many Easter activities which help folks to learn about Jesus love for them.  Your prayer calendar will help you know of the physical needs of many in our church.  Please pray for those who are lost and need to have a personal relationship with Jesus.

See You Sunday,

Betty Hall
