The month of June is upon us. We have almost reached the halfway point of the year and Summer won’t be too far behind. The kids are getting out of school and young adults are graduating high school and college. Memorial Day closes out the month of May and “unofficially” kicks off Summer! This also starts a busy season for us here at Oak Grove as well. We will kick off the month of June with First Sunday lunch on June 4th. It is always a great time of food and fellowship. VBS here at Oak Grove will be June 27-30 this year and if you would like to help, please get in touch with Kelly Fitzgerald or Ashley Talley and I’m sure they can find a place for you. Be sure and sign up for LRBA Church Camp at Lonsdale which will be July 17-21. It is always a great time for VBS and Church Camp. Don’t forget that this month is Flag Day on the 14th and Father’s Day on the 18th.
The month of May was very blessed at Oak Grove. We witnessed professions of faith in our Lord Jesus Christ, we witnessed and were able to take part in the baptisms of Eddie and Halle Fitzgerald, Tatum and Rylan Talley and Allen Booth. We pray that each church member keeps our new brothers and sisters in Christ in their prayers each day as they start their journey. May each of us as a church body come along side each of them to help them in any way possible. Great things are happening at Oak Grove, and I look forward to seeing each of you at our services on Sunday and Wednesdays as we serve the Lord together. Please continue to prayer for fellow believers in our church family. Some are hurting, some are going through health issues and please pray for the marriages in our church family. God is at work at Oak Grove! I am enclosing a few scriptures that I have been reading lately:
I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, 2 with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, 3 eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. 4 There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call— 5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6 one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.Ephesians 4:1-6
Only let your manner of life be worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or am absent, I may hear of you that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind striving side by side for the faith of the gospel.Philippians 1:27
But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.1 John 1:7
Love in Christ, Bro Michael
