IT’S HALLOWEEN THEN THANKSGIVING THEN …
by Pastor Richard
for the week beginning Sunday, October 26, 2014
Today is the last day for me to remind you to use every day of the year to witness and share your faith, INCLUDING HALLOWEEN EVENING. Remember the Psalm that says THE EARTH IS THE LORD’S AND THE FULNESS THEREOF. I have put some Halloween Gospel tracts at the Information Center for you today (while supplies last). Take what you can use.
WHAT CAN WE LEARN FROM THE RECENT HOUSTON CHURCH SUBPOENA SAGA? Churches can address moral and cultural issues through their publications and sermons. That communication is protected speech. It becomes something different when the church is calling its people to take a certain action regarding those moral and cultural issues. Want more information on this matter?

Operation Barnabas has been discipling students for more than 40 years to make an eternal difference. You can get their latest updates at www.operationbarnabas.net
FEAR NOT is the message people of faith should be preaching during these days of uncertainty about certain circumstances in our world.
I have put some copies of a coloring sheet from this mornings message at the Information Center. Take one for yourself or several for you and your kids as you share this mornings message with them.
Some of you have asked what version of the Bible we preach from here at Community so I thought I would explain. I am preaching from the ESV (English Standard Version) on Sunday mornings. I preach from the NKJV (New King James Version) on Sunday evenings. I attended seminary and used the New American Standard Bible. The first Scriptures I memorized were in the KJV. There you have it. I love God’s Word.
We went one more week in our Famous Bible Story series on October 26 and looked in Numbers 13. The title was THE PAST WAS GOOD AND THE FUTURE IS BLEAK.
God’s best to you,
