Had a great morning at Mountain Valley Church! We studied Ephesians 1:3-14 and were reminded how blessed we are as believers because of what God the Father has done for us through Jesus and the Holy Spirit. I am so excited to be studying this incredible book and look forward to what God is going to teach us in the future.
It was nice to have Dr. Hugh Richardson (our Director of Missions for the Shelby Baptist Association) and his wife and son visit us this morning. Dr. and Mrs. Richardson are such wonderful supporters of church planting and I’m grateful for all of their help.
We had an interesting guest this morning who was using the library’s free wifi to surf the internet. We invited him inside to make himself at home and shared the Gospel with him. I’ve noticed a growing number of people sitting outside the library with laptops. I dream of a “third place” like a coffee shop or internet cafe’ where people can come and find a community of Christ followers to mingle with…. Join with me in praying that God will open an opportunity for our church to be a more permanent part of the community. Several buildings have become vacant in the city, but all are asking outrageous prices to buy.
Praying that you’ll have a great week!
