Give Thanks

From Your Pastor,

“In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”
1 Thessalonians 5:18 (NKJV) 

My favorite time of year is fall - the air is crisp, the stars seem to shine brighter and the leaves show off their brilliance in color. From fire-engine reds to blazing yellows, the changing seasons remind us that God is getting ready to do something spectacular again in the springtime. But before Spring comes, there has to be a period of dormancy – a period of rest for God’s creation. The glowing colors all around us remind us that God is getting ready to put His creation to sleep for awhile before He wakes it up again to thrive and to be active.

As I think about a parallel to life, I see that God also uses the same principle with his treasured creation – you and me! There are times in our lives where we thrive and are full of life and there are other times where we experience a period of rest. During that rest, we are not completely idle. We have the ability to give thanks to our God for His wonderful blessings in our lives! 

 I am thankful for my family and friends. I am thankful to be a part of my church family here at North Main.  I am thankful for the many wonderful experiences we have shared together. I am thankful that God has complete control over every aspect of our lives. 

We have seen God do some amazing things within our church family and in the community. We have had the addition of new church family members and have celebrated many baptisms. We have been able to share the gospel effectively with our community through many mission projects. In Judgment House alone, there were 60 people that made first time decisions and 53 people that had spiritual questions about what they saw and heard. 

We are mighty blessed to be a part of God’s plan and I am thankful!

Pastor Fred

Dare To Share

Our Broadcast Student Ministry has had an amazing month of October. On Saturday, October 12, we had several of our students and leaders participate in a Dare To Share Event at Freedom Baptist Church. Our students got to learn more about how to share their faith as well as go out and the community to practice what they learned. On Wednesday, October 16, we held our 3rd annual Fields Of Faith Event. This year was at Tunstall High School. We had three students to help lead the event. Anna Burton shared her testimony. Andrew Crank and Jaydon Unger were part of the Praise Band! There were close to 500 in attendance. On Friday, October 18, our students went to a sunflower maze. They had a great time building community with each other. I want to thank my wife for helping lead this event and Chris Kennan for driving the bus while I was in Romania. We are blessed to have great leaders who step up and lead on a weekly basis!
That All May Know!

Trunk or Treat

Children's Ministry

We have had quite a tremendous October. We were blessed to have sixteen preteens attend our Club 56 Lock-In. The theme was “No Compromise” as we learned about Daniel and his friends Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. We were also looking forward to what God does with our “Trunk or Treat” at the end of the month. While this will be my first winter in Virginia, I look forward to this time of year. In November we take time to give thanks to God for what He is done, and then in December we are reminded of what He ultimately did that we can give thanks for through the birth of Jesus Christ. This time may also bring many sad memories as well, but we can have the hope of eternal peace and joy through faith in Jesus Christ. Let’s finish this year by modeling a spirit of thanks and joy to our kids and for those around us.
-Brett Tooley, Minister of Children and Families
