Please Pray

Received in an email:

I have a prayer request. There's a lady I've known forever. She's very sick. On top of that, she's being abused by those to whom she has given everything.....Lies about her abound, and seem to come from all sides. Just breaks my heart. Seems there's nothing I can do alone but maybe, if we join in and lift her up together, we can heal her. She's well over 230 years old, but way too young to die. Her name is 'America'... And I love her and have always been proud of her. Please take time to say a prayer for her - even if it is a short, simple prayer like, "Lord, please heal our land. Amen." Thanks!
Requesting 40 days of prayer for our country, beginning September 28, 2012 and through election day! "If my people, who are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land." (2 Chronicles 7:14) REMEMBER 40 DAYS OF PRAYER BEFORE THE ELECTION --- IT STARTS SEPTEMBER 28, 2012!

161st Homecoming

Next Sunday is our 161st Homecoming!  Special plans are in place to make it a day filled with the warm presence of friends and a time of reflection on God's goodness and grace. 
Special guests include the Lighthouse Children's Choir who will share the message of God’s love and hope through song and testimony.  This choir consists of girls who currently live at The Lighthouse Children’s Home and whose lives were touched and changed by the wholesome Christian environment designed so that young women in crisis circumstances can meet Jesus and allow Him to totally transform them. 
Rev. James Croft will be the special speaker in the 11:00 AM service. Rev Croft has what some pastors have called a unique evangelistic ministry in that he is only 3'10" tall. His size attracts the attention of adults, youth and children, allowing him the opportunity to share the Gospel. He has preached revivals and youth services in north Florida, South Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina and South Carolina. He has also conducted crusades, church leader’s conferences and Vacation Bible Schools in Ghana, West Africa for the past three years.
Following the morning service there will be a meal in the fellowship hall.  Church family is asked to bring extra food to share with our guests. 
Services will begin at 9:45 AM in the sanctuary with a time of singing and enjoying the Lighthouse Children's Choir, worship will begin at 11:00 AM with Rev. Croft.  There will be no Sunday School or evening services.
