Weekly Update - 7/26

Thank you Patrick for the message "How To Win Hands Down", with the text taken from Ephesians 6:10-20 and Revelation 12:13-17.
He explained that to win "hands down" means we are in HIS power and in the strength of HIS might.  We are victorious as Christians.
1.  We are reminded, that in God's kingdom, this world is not our home.
2.  God's people - HIS church - WINS!
The question is not who's going to win the battle but, on whose side will you be standing?

SAYING GOODBYE:  Today we said "see you later" to 2 families.  David, Rene and Zander Peace are moving to Tennessee.  Brian, Jeanette, Joseph and Wyatt Singleton are moving to the DFW area.
We're going to miss you all!

BAPTIZED:  Kimberlynn Lee was baptized this morning.  She is the daughter of Michael and Kristi Lee and the granddaughter of Butch and Betsy Mills.  After church, her baby sister asked me if I was happy for her sister!  How sweet is that?

RESPONSE:  Austin Mosley went forward asking for prayers for help with combating the worldly exposures that are haunting him.

There was an infection in her feet, but it's better.  The blood cultures show that the infection didn't make it into her bloodstream.
