From My Heart
We welcome Pastor Mike Wells and his wife, Sylvia, to our church today as our guest speaker. Pastor Wells was saved at the Reese Carnival in a booth that was set up for our soul-winners to share the Gospel with those in attendance. I am sure he will take a brief moment and share that story with us, and even though I have heard it, I am anxious to hear it again. He pastors the Parkside Baptist Church, in Mesquite, Texas and has been there now for 12 years. I know you will make Pastor and Mrs. Wells feel welcome!
This evening, after the service I want to remind you of our ice cream fellowship. We always get the ice cream from Hoffman’s, and it is so fresh and tasty. We have plenty, and a wide variety of flavors so you can try a few different flavors just to see which you like best! If it should rain, we will serve in 417/418 and open Baker Auditorium for folks to fellowship and enjoy their ice cream.
Let me say another word about the mission trip the teenagers will take this summer. A trip like this is invaluable and the kids will never forget the experiences they encounter. All who go on the trip will remember it for the rest of their life, and a trip like this could be the tool the Lord uses to call one of our young people into full-time ministry. The kids are working to raise the monies they are responsible for, and we are asking if some of our folks can help out with an offering to help with the cost. You can certainly use the red envelopes in the foyer, or you can just
designate an offering. The pastors and the missionaries who have hosted our teens have always responded to me and thanked me for sending them such a wonderful group of dedicated and helpful kids! If you can help with their trip, I know they will be very thankful.
Would you take a moment before the service begins and pray to the Lord and ask Him to bless the service this morning? Ask the Lord to speak to your heart and draw you closer to Him. I believe the Holy Spirit has something special for every heart today, so let’s pray to ask the Lord to bless! Pastor Wells will be with us again this evening at 6:00 p.m., so plan to be back this evening and then enjoy the ice cream fellowship time.
If this is your first time with us or the first time in a long time, we are so glad to have you in our service. If we can help you in any way, please let us know! Have a great day!
