The family all got together, we shared with others less fortu- nate, went to church, shared Jesus' birth, heard from friends and family that don't keep in touch often, or we did several things that included our kids and all enjoyed ourselves. When we really remember Jesus' birth is the reason to celebrate, we can enjoy the holiday so much more. Bro. Jim Reed's message was from Psalm 123 titled "Confidence Builders." How often we build confidence on looks, money, power or jobs, all of which we can lose. The only true confidence comes from God (1) the eternal plan God has for everyone, how much easier it is to face everything or everyone with confidence in the Lord Jesus Christ; (2) to trust God to take care of all things for us. Where God guides, He will provide. (3) We need to make everything a matter of prayer. Nothing is too small or too big to turn over to God in prayer. If we were not important to God, why did He send His only Son to die for us? Pat Gilliver was telling in Children's Church about one child that starts her day by upon awakening wiggles her toes to kick the Devil out of bed, puts on the full armor of God, then asks God's guidance throughout the day. That is a simple enough way to start the day. We all could follow this example and have confidence in everything we do each day. The Lord's Supper was observed during the evening services. We will have Bible study at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday evening. On next Sunday following Sunday School at 9:45 a.m., Worship services at 11 a.m., a covered dish dinner will be held in fellowship hall. May your New Year be built with God's love and guidance. First Baptist Church By Wands Carp Our pastor, Albert May, was on vacation and we had a speaker from S[illwater, Tracy Morgan, Attorney, member of First Baptist Church, and has been an Associate Pastor of Emanuel Baptist Church in Shawnee and several churches in Texas. Tracy's brother, Mike Mor- gan, was in the audience so we were doubly honored. During the offertory, I heard the most beautiful music and I checked it out and it was Michael Brown and his mother, Carlleeta, playing Joy to the World. Michael plays the FrenchHorn and we thank him for his gift to us. Terrisa Elwood's solo was entitled "God Forbid" (that I should speak of You without reverence). She has been blessed with a lovely and powerful voice and we thank her, also. Tracy Morgan gave us a good message urging us as a church to not The CHRISTIAN BOOKSTORE Bibles, Books, Music, Church Stipplies, Sunday School Curriculum. 104 S.

He reminded us it was to cover the "year 2000. And where is that enthusiasm now? I, we had surely made great strides and the rest would way, I should know better and we should remember new our covenant. In the evening service, Tracy Morgan spoke to us content." Sometimes we fantasize upon ways to improve appearance and wish things were better. Paul gave Phil. 4:10-13 and he had experience with bad situations, out of jail, being bitten by a snake, being pursued from Someone described him as being short, bald and Paul's advice was "I can do all things through Christ who me." You let Christ control your life, as one old Missionary "It's not the labor but who the labor is for." We were privileged to hear Treena Withey's solo, Him cry?" Considering how we serve him.

This Sunday we will see the gospel made in Saul's life and the change it should mak,,e This past Sunday, we looked at the "Parable of the Sower thew 13. Jesus speaks of the word of God being planted like in a field and four different types of soil are described: hard rocky, thorny, and good. Jesus tells us that the four four different human hearts. Some hearts hear the word nothing happens; it's because they are so hard the cannot take root. Some hearts, then, are like rocky soil; the the gospel puts down short roots and seems to grow for a the person is distracted or enticed by other desires and the sage withers and dies. Some hearts are like soil with thorns, Jesus says. They h pel, it takes root and grows quite well--sometimes even for then stops producing fruit because the person is more money or worldly worries than with God. Finally, is like good soil; the gospel is planted and firmly takes root, to be spread to more and more people.
