The group from Kids’ Worship had the special on Sunday. They did an AWESOME job. Can’t wait to hear the Christmas Musical they are working on. Keep up the good work kids. There were 250 at church, lots of grandparents, and great grandparents came to hear these kids.

It is that time of year where we give you the opportunity and privilege of serving the Lord through the ministries of LPCC. From serving in the nursery, to making coffee and sending cards, there is something for everyone to do. Please be praying about how you can serve.

It’s time to pack OCC shoeboxes. You can send a gift to a child while giving an opportunity to learn about Jesus. You can pick up a brochure and empty shoebox from the display in the Worship Center foyer. On the foyer table there is a list of needed items you may purchase for “the store”. Purchases items need to be placed in the tub under the foyer table.

Surviving the Holidays Grief Seminar will be at the First General Baptist in Mt. Carmel on Saturday, Nov. 9 from 9–11 a.m. You can call Little Prairie office to register. This is a great program if you have had a loss this year or last year. Holidays are hard after the death of a loved one.

Mr. Tom spoke on Sunday on “Teaming Up with Jesus.” He started with, adulting is hard-I can’t adult today- Please don’t make me adult. We have all been there, done that. Life is hard whether our job, health, stress or anxiety. Everything is heavier alone. The point: Teaming up with Jesus will make your life easier and joyful. He spoke of cows having yoke. The yoke keeps them together and distributes the weight of the load equally. As I looked at the photo of the cows being yoked, I was trying to think if I had ever seen two cows yoked. I think my grandpa had a yoke from his horses though. In regards to being yoked to Jesus-the yoke keeps us from moving ahead or falling behind of Jesus. Mr. Tom spoke of “Learn from Jesus.” Put the young with the experienced-how and from whom do you learn. One way to learn is to practice (cooking comes to my mind). “Rest with Jesus;” Rest meaning to recover, refresh or gather strength. Never give up-stay with Jesus. “Come to Jesus.” Jesus came to us; everyone is invited to come to him. Teaming with Jesus makes the impossible possible. And as we closed our service, we had two young people go forward and give their lives to Jesus through Baptism. What a way to end a Sunday service!
