Today, Easter Sunday, April 4th, 2021 was the last service we had as Brentwood Family Fellowship. When we started this church 8 years ago, we had no conception of what God would do in this place. Besides ours, we have had two other congregations meeting in the building. One moved on to their own facilities, one will continue to use this facility and will host another congregation that has outgrown their meeting place. It has been such a blessing to see growth in congregations, as well as personal growth in those of our congregation. Buddy and I have learned even more that there is no limit to what God can do if you are willing to turn it all over to Him.
WHAT A BLESSING!
Buddy and I have been involved in the Christian Motorcyclists Association for several years. God has called us to become more involved in the ministry of CMA, taking the Gospel to the secular motorcycle world. CMA’s mission is “Changing the World, One Heart at a Time”. Please pray for us as we begin this new ministry.
It’s all about Jesus!
We had a great time at our Easter service last week, so we will have another parking lot service this Sunday, April 19th, at 10:45 am, at The Lighthouse. Please remain in your vehicle during the service. Remember to park so that you are at least 6 feet away from the people in the car next to you. Hope to see you there!
We are planning a parking lot service on Easter, April 12th, at 10:45 am. We will have it in the parking lot of The Lighthouse, behind the main church building.
We must abide by the social distancing rules, so here are a few things to do:
1. Park facing the building but leave space between cars so you are at least 6 feet away from the person in the next car.
2. We may have someone directing the parking. If so, please follow their directions.
3. You must remain in your vehicle AT ALL TIMES.
This will be much different from what we are used to, but at least we can be together to celebrate the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ!
Things are a little different this morning. This is about the time that Buddy and I would be arriving at the church building to start getting things ready for Bible study and our morning service. But we need to remember that the building we meet in is not the church, it’s the church building. The church is made up of each one of us who, because of knowing Jesus, has the Spirit of the Living God within us.
Around 10:45 this morning, we will post Buddy’s and Lance’s messages for this week. I will miss our Bible study this morning. Each of you that come is such an encouragement to me.
Gather with your family this morning and watch Buddy and Lance, or whomever God directs you to. There are lots of local churches streaming their services this morning, as well as those on the TV. If you know any of our people who don’t have access to the internet, consider inviting them to join you.
God bless you and your family!
After much prayer, Buddy and I have decided to suspend our morning services until Easter, April 13th. Buddy will do some kind of message each week, and it will be posted as usual. We also are suspending the food pantry until further notice. If you have an emergency and need food, we will be available on a case by case basis. Call 325-277-5250.
In the meantime, read your Bible, pray, and help those around you that are hurting. Listen to Christian radio. Read a good devotional book. Go back and listen to some of Buddy and Lance’s older messages. There are at least six years worth here on this site and on our Facebook page.
May God bless you and your family during this difficult time and keep you safe!
Please note – the Food Pantry will be closed this Sunday, February 9th.
We are restructuring our Food Pantry schedule. Beginning January 5, 2020, we will be open on the first 4 Sundays of every month, except holidays, at 12:30 pm. The food pantry will be closed on December 29.
This is from a blog I have started following. We have been learning about this most important principle. It awes me when I see the Holy Spirit leading others the way He is leading us. God is the same, whether you live in Texas or Ohio!
The start of the new year always seems to be about willpower, even for those who don’t make official Resolutions. It’s the time to start over, the time to finally make those dreams come true. For people of faith it’s a time “to break that habit I’m ashamed of” or “to get serious about serving God and others.” Worthy goals…
Of which we almost invariably fall short.
In the Bible, God’s people fall short again and again: “We can’t do this. It’s too hard for us!” they complain. And so, after giving them the final words of the covenant, Moses offers the key to fulfilling it: “This commandment which I command you today is not too difficult for you, nor is it out of reach,” he says. No, “the word is very near you: it is in your mouth and in your heart, that you may observe it” (Deuteronomy 30:11, 12, 14)…

Lord my God, You have done many things —
Your wonderful works and Your plans for us;
none can compare with You.
If I were to report and speak of them,
they are more than can be told.
