All Church Breakfast & Work Day – Saturday, October 13
The second Saturday of the month is the “All Church Breakfast and Workday.” The next workday is Saturday, October 13 when men, women, husbands, fathers, kids, and grandkids of all shapes and sizes…are invited to join us at 8 a.m. for breakfast. At 8:30 a.m. we will form groups and get projects done until around 10:30 a.m. Some of the projects are at the church and some in the community. Colossians 3:23-24 says, “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.”
- Please make the All Church Breakfast and Workday a normal part of your monthly routine!
- Please encourage the able-bodied folks in your family to get up and come!
- Please bring your sons and daughters and instill the discipline of service in them!
- Please prayerfully give God three hours once a month in physical labor for Him!
