Happy New Year!

The Lord’s Supper has been postponed due to Pastor David’s exposure to COVID. There will be an evening service tonight. Pastor David and Rae Anne will be distancing from the congregation in both the morning and evening services.

High Point Baptist Church in Mayfield, KY is a center point for helping Mayfield work through the storm damage. New Life will be partnering with Pastor Darick Hollman for the long-term process in which there will be multiple opportunities to lend a helping hand to a sister church. This will assist High Point in sharing the gospel and meeting real needs. A trailer will leave New Life for High Point Baptist Church at 10 a.m. on Monday, December 20th. Right now, the need is: new pillows and pillowcases, new blankets, and hygiene kits (see the list on the Bulletin boards and the Welcome Center). Please place hygiene kit items in a gallon Ziploc bag and label women’s, men’s, or baby/toddler.

Concerning the Future of Our Church

I almost got hit by a car when I was a kid. I was riding my bike, standing up on the pedals with no hands on the handlebars (bad idea), and I started to cross an intersection without looking both ways (another bad idea). By God’s grace, I narrowly avoided being struck by a car. You always think it can’t happen to you. But I did a funeral once for a 13-year-old boy who was struck by a car while he rode his moped beside a busy highway. It happens. It’s happened to others. It can happen to you.

A year and a half ago I never dreamed I’d get COVID just after Easter, but I did. And so have lots of other people. Just when we start to think it can’t happen to us, we get sick, or somebody we know gets COVID. It happens. It’s happened to others. It can happen to you.

On the Welcome Center there are envelopes for the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering for International Missions. Lottie Moon was a single lady missionary to China over 100 years ago. She wrote letters challenging American churches to send more support and workers to mission fields. After her death, an annual offering for world missions was named in her honor. This is a free will offering, and every bit of the money raised goes directly to the support of international missionaries. Donations for the Lottie Moon Offering will be collected through Sunday, December 19th.
