As we approach Fall Festival, we are still taking candy donations, and you will have the opportunity to sign up to serve in many areas.  These include food prep, games, bounce houses, and/or trunks.  Please pray about where to serve, and look for opportunities to promote Fall Festival in your neighborhood.  One way we will be promoting Fall Festival is by placing a flyer in the goody bags for Dallas Park Elementary.  We take goody bags on the fourth Monday each month to the class with the highest attendance.

I am thankful to Chris for the opportunity to preach this last Sunday.  My prayer is that this sermon encouraged each of you to remember the Gospel message, and to remain “steadfast, immovable, always excelling in the Lord’s work”  (1 Corinthians 15:58) as we take the Gospel into our neighborhoods and our workplaces.  I am thankful for each person in our SHBC family, and I’m thankful for the ways God has gifted you!
