From The Pastor
Well, the committee reports have been approved, and the church voted Sunday to adopt the proposed budget for the new church year. Everything is in place for a normal church year – except we don’t have a normal church yet! That said, I want to thank you for your understanding and patience as we continue to make the best of our circumstances. Worship attendance and participation in our livestream services have been strong, and your faithfulness in giving tithes and offerings has been awesome. Please continue to pray that this pestilence will be lifted and that God will heal our land.
We are in the process of preparing a list of eligible men for your consideration in nominating men to serve as deacons in place of those who will be rotating off at the end of this calendar year. Men, I am asking that if you have prayed and know that you will decline to serve should you be nominated, please phone the church office and have your name removed from the list. The Deacons will approve the list on September 13th, and the church will nominate candidates on October 4th.
As I shared with you last week, one of our Sanctuary video projectors has broken, and being obsolete is no longer supported by the manufacturer. A new one will cost between $8000 - $10,000. We are making do with a smaller one we have on hand, but due to its smaller capacity, we are limited in what we can project with it. The cost to replace all 3 projectors and screens with large LED TVs that will yield a much better picture is only $5000. Some donations have been received, and we are now in need of $4400. If you feel led to contribute all or part of this cost, please contact me as soon as possible.
Stand Up, Stand Up for Jesus!

Currently - compiling list of eligible men for nomination. If you wish to be removed from the upcoming list please contact the church office by Tuesday, September 8.

Sept. 13 - List of men will be presented at Deacon Meeting for approval.
Sept. 20 - Deacon Nomination List will be available to congregation for prayer.
Oct. 4 - Congregation will Vote.

Honor and Memorialize a Pearl River County Veteran!

The Picayune veteran’s memorial, located next to City Hall on Goodyear Boulevard, includes brick pavers; each engraved with a veteran’s name, branch of service, rank, and/or dates of service. The first bricks were laid in 1990 at a formal ceremony. This is a fitting and permanent way to honor those who have served our country in one of the branches of the Armed Forces. I was so honored by a church member who purchased a brick for me. Bricks are still available for only $50 per brick. If you would like to honor a veteran in your family, or perhaps a veteran in our church who has been an inspiration to you, please contact City Hall at (601) 798-9770 or James Fleming at (866) 499-1907.
