Hello First Baptist Luling,

This is your pastor, Jerry Stevens. This message is to share several items with you about this Sunday.

First, as you probably are aware, Jill Queen is retiring as our ministry assistant, a role she has served faithfully and effectively for many years. We want to celebrate Jill’s extraordinary contribution to the life of our church with a special recognition this Sunday. We will share our deep appreciation and gratitude to Jill during the service, hearing from spokespersons representing various groups in the church. Then, immediately after the service, please plan to join us in an informal reception for Jill. The reception will give you opportunity to share your own personal thoughts and appreciation to her.

Second, again as you probably are aware, this coming Sunday, Nov. 7, is time change Sunday. Set your clocks back one hour Saturday night. Otherwise, you will just get to church plenty early enough to help those setting up for Jill’s reception!  🙂

By the way, we are making good progress on our hurricane recovery. Have you seen the new roof on our auditorium? God is so good.

See you Sunday for worship at 10:00!

May God bless you richly.

Jerry
