“And let us consider how to stir up one another
to love and good works”
“Because we are members of His body” (Eph. 5:30), the men’s fellowship at First Independent Methodist Church enjoyed an amazing cookout. We converged on the home of Billy & Carol Mason on May 18th and shared in conversation while our brother Billy grilled most delicious hamburgers and hot dogs. We know that where two are three are gathered in His name, He is present. I am sure He enjoyed our fellowship as much as we did. We hope you will join us next time.
Pastor Doug preached a very special message on Mother’s Day. Faith that is determined and directed. A faith that brings one to a decision, and a faith that declares our savior to others. This is a mother’s faith. After the sermon, he called all mothers to the front of the church. Husbands and family stood behind them as he prayed a prayer of thanksgiving and blessing for each.
Only God Himself fully appreciates the influence of a Christian mother in the molding of character in her children. ~ Billy Graham
I don’t believe there are devils enough in hell to pull a boy out of the arms of a godly mother. ~ Billy Sunday
She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness. Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her. Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all. Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised. (Proverbs 31:27-30)
I cannot tell you how much I owe to the solemn word of my good mother. ~ Charles Haddon Spurgeon
All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel Mother. ~ Abraham Lincoln
Your mother’s voice is the first voice you ever hear – even before you are born. Even as a newborn baby, you know your Mother and
prefer her above anyone else. Cherish your mother and be sure she knows you appreciate everything she does for you. The days are short, love your mother before time is gone. If your mother has already gone on before you, take some time to recall memories of her. Share these memories with your family so that she will live on in your hearts.
