Remarks from the Pastor- March 18, 2018

Good Morning Church Members & Guests,

 Senior Pastor Tom Porter

Senior Pastor Tom Porter

In the past 90 days our church has moved forward with some interesting changes.  For one, our church staff is now in the process of learning a new data system called Realm.  I am so pleased with not only our staff but also Mrs. Pat Stallone who volunteers each Wednesday to enter the data into the computer.  Another change is we set a new time for Wednesday night service.  Parents are very pleased with this change because their children get home and to bed earlier.  We have changed our Sunday morning Bible Study curriculum to Explore The Bible for every Sunday School Department.  Each member now has either a Student Study Guide or a Devotional Guide.  The children all have colorful booklets and material for their lessons that lead them into Biblical truths.  It is wonderful to see the emphasis on studying the Word of God among our members.  We have also joined with Truelife.org in handing out a full color cards with all the different ministries and times of our church printed on it.  On the back of the card is the web site: www.truelife.org for people to go on and have a variety of questions about God, the Bible, and life answered.  You will notice three TrueLife.org cards and a tract were placed in your church bulletin this morning.  Please witness for Jesus Christ and hand these materials to people this week.  Another great thing happening is Becky Porter and Di Anne Barnes will be leading a ladies Bible study every Thursday.  Check elsewhere in this bulletin about times and dates.  I am making plans to have an outing for married couples in the future and a Dave Ramsey, Financial Peace University (FPU) course in the fall on nine consecutive Sunday nights.  And let us not forget another change!  Our Lady Lions are now the Florida State Champions in their basketball league!
