Grace Happenings | January 10, 2024



Pastor’s Pen

The following is supposedly a true story:

A bar called Drummond’s, in Mt Vernon, Texas began construction on an expansion of their building, hoping to “grow” their business. In response, the local Baptist Church started a campaign to block the bar from expanding – petitions, prayers, etc. About a week before the bar’s grand reopening, a bolt of lightning struck the bar and burned it to the ground! Afterward, the church folks were rather smug – bragging about “the power of prayer”. The angry bar owner eventually sued the church on grounds that the church … “was ultimately responsible for the demise of his building, through direct actions or indirect means.” Of course, the church vehemently denied all responsibility or any connection to the building’s demise. 

The judge read carefully through the plaintiff’s complaint and the defendant’s reply. He then opened the hearing by saying: “I don’t know how I’m going to decide this, but it appears from the paperwork that what we have here is a bar owner who now believes in the power of prayer, and an entire church congregation that does not.”

Grace Fellowship as we seek to follow God’s lead in reaching Buffalo for Jesus, we should not be surprised when God answers prayer. We are being called to pray for a great harvest of souls prior to our relocation to the new property.

Can’t wait to see you this weekend it is such a privilege to be your pastor.

Grace has been given a generous

  1. Grant will match any NEW monthly pledge given during the year 2024 up to $4,000 per month.

  2. Does not apply to one-time gifts, or pledges already made just to new monthly gifts to the building fund during 2024.

  3. Applies to anyone who is already giving monthly and who desires to increase their monthly gift amount.

Everything given (no matter how small) matters. Join the Adventure to make the $48,000 grow to $96,000!!!
