Announcements August 4, 2019

Two things to address regarding one of the slides on the PowerPoint this past Sunday: 

1. The Table (slide 4) on the powerpoint: There were 5 points with scriptures attached on the left side; those scriptures DO NOT correspond to the points on the right side of the table. So there were actually 10 separate points under: 'Some Truths in Understanding Prayer'. 

2. Also on the table under 'Prayer can give wisdom', the scripture reference should be James 1: 5 NOT James 3: 5! 

I apologize for the confusion. 



Carlisa Sanders-We rejoice as Carlisa has made great progress in her recovery at The Shepherd Center in Atlanta. Please be praying for The Sanders as they prepare for her return home the beginning of August. It will be a transition for their family, as well as us, because Carlisa will still be recovering and won't be back to her "usual" routine for quite some time. Many have asked how they may help and that will be more clear as she returns home but cards may be sent to Jes & Carlisa at 1429 Bevis Drive, Charlotte NC 28209 (but please no unscheduled visits). 

Care Calendar for Delores Whittington: A care calendar has been set up for meals for Delores Whittington with Lotsa Helping Hands. Request is for simple light spicy or fried foods and no dairy (lactose sensitivity). Please call or text Lucy Ward with any questions at 704-497-0215. 

AnJanette Edgar needs someone to visit her on Thursday evening, August 8. James has an appointment from 5:00-9:00. You don't have to stay the entire time, but as much as you can. If you can help, let James know by phone at 980-230-7797 or email at 


Join disciples from around the world sharing God's vision to bring the love of Jesus to as many as possible.
