Now, let’s think about this from another viewpoint. What about all those congregations who put out the time and effort to come, help and encourage us during that time? Is it right, or even fair, to expect them to come and help and encourage us but we don’t go and encourage them with their special events? If we are not willing to sacrifice the time and effort to go help and encourage them why should we expect them to come and help us? Now, please don’t misunderstand. I know that we cannot make every single special event taking place in the brotherhood in our area. We all have family, work, special events and even things with the congregation here that we are committed to. But we can determine to put out the effort to attend, to support every special brotherhood event we possible can. Here are some very special things coming up. The flyers for all of these with a lot of additional information are on the bulletin board in the foyer.
Singing Workshop @ Sallisaw - Mar. 4-5.
Ladies Day @ Checotah - Mar. 11th
Gospel Meeting @ Checotah - Mar. 12-15
Golden Agers Rally @ Vinita - March 18th
N.E. OK Gospel Meeting @ Azalea cong. in Muskogee - April 9-10.
Senior Quest (41st Annual camp for Seniors) @ Pettijohn Springs - May 1-5.
Ladies Day @ Pryor - May 6th
As I said, I know it is not possible for us to attend every single one of these but, we do need to try to do our best to support and encourage our sister congregations with these special efforts.
Until next week, I love you all,
