On Monday, October 17th, FBC Soperton will be hosting our DBA messengers at our annual Fall Business session where we will enjoy a wonderful meal followed by God Stories and a message from Godâ€™s Word by Rev. Mike Everson of our Georgia Baptist Mission Board. If you are planning to join us for this special business session, please let us know by October 11th if not sooner.

Our Freedom House (transitional center for former inmates) will open early January of 2017 (if not sooner) and we need your help. Please begin praying for this ministry and specifically for a 12 or 15 passenger van or the $15,000 to purchase one. This is a great need as we cannot open that ministry center until the transportationÂ issue is solved. Again, I donâ€™t ask this lightly as I know God can and will meet this need but I also know it will be accomplish through prayer and the gifts of Godâ€™s people. If you have any questions please give us a call at 912–583-2713.
Please be in prayer for this weekâ€™s Churches of the Week:
- Friendship Baptist (pastor Paul Thompson)
- Grace Truth (pastor James Tippins)
- Hammond Baptist (pastor Daniel Caraway)
- Harmony Baptist (currently without a pastor)
- Please be in prayer for Bobby Thompson (pastor of Tabernacle) in the death of his mother Betty Thompson.
QUOTE OF THE WEEK
The gospel has done its work in us when we crave God more than we crave everything else in life and when seeing His kingdom advance in the lives of others gives us more joy than anything we could own. When we see Jesus as greater than anything the world can offer, weâ€™ll gladly let everything else go to possess Him. ‑J.D. Greear
Blessed to serve,
