We were blessed with a very good day in our services yesterday. What a joy to baptize four more folks as a part of last night’s service. In a testimony to God’s goodness and your faithfulness, our attendance was very good even though it was a holiday weekend. We were only a few short in both the morning and evening services from last week’s totals. God is good!

Our Sunday School class (20-29) and the 30-39 class will have a joint fellowship at our house this afternoon. Translated – it is 5:00AM and Lisa has already mandated that I be doing yard work at the crack of dawn! I simply asked, “have you ever seen Will’s yard” to which she replied, “this is not Will’s yard!”
A good first weekend of college football. Things get even better next weekend as the NFL regular season begins. Good stuff!
I pray that you will have a great Labor Day with Jesus!
