Steve and Marie Bunch brought their baby girl forward in the second service for a baby dedication. They have moved to Claremore, but wanted to come home with family and friends for this special occasion in their lives. The roof on the north side of the fellowship hall looks beautiful. About 21 men and women came out to the church Saturday and we got some work done. We tore off the existing wood shake shingles on the fellowship hall and then decked the new portion plus the old .and then shingled it back. Next will come the south side. Praise the Lord for willing workers. The kids are getting settled into the routine of school. Sarah is now in high school (can you believe it?) and enjoying the challenges it presents.

The popular view in Jesns's days and this day are wrong. The truth is Jesus Christ is the son of God. The question we must all answer is, "who do you say Jesus is?" You will never discover who Jesus is, never understand your life and why you are until you understand who he is. The evening service text was Mathew 7:15 and entitled =False Teachers." What was true in the old testament is still true today, and most people don't want to know the truth. Many time truth does not make us feel good. Watch out for false prophets. A true prophet will speak God's word regardless. False prophets are not just wrong, they are dangerous. They do not pose as enemies and show their true colors by what they do. Remember we are here to serve God, sincerity is not a ticket to heaven. Stay close to Jesus, it is safe, he on guard for false prophets. Where did the summer go?
