                                  Good morning to everyone. I am humbled and honored to be elected as your pastor. And would like to thank you for the confidence you have placed in me. I ask you to please pray for me as We always need God’s help in anything but especially as I try to be your under shepherd.

                                  I wanted to tell everyone a little about myself and my family. My wife and I were both born and raised in a small community in Smith County, by the name of Pleasant Shade. We have been married 42 years and have 3 wonderful children.

                                  My son’s name is Patrick. He lives in Pleasant Shade and is not married yet.

                                  My oldest daughter is Heather Huffines, and she is married to Josh, who we ask you to pray for since he has not yet been saved. They have one son, and his name is Coen. He is four years old. They live in Lafayette.

                                  I have been preaching 46 years but still need prayer as any preacher does. I ask you again to pray for me and I will be praying for all of you. I look forward to getting to know all of you and I will do anything I can to help you.

                                  A minister told his congregation, ”Next week I plan to preach about the sin of lying. To help you understand my sermon, please read Mark 17.”
                                  The following Sunday the minister asked, by a show of hands, tell me how many people read Mark 17. Several hands went up.
                                  The minister smiled and said, “Mark only has sixteen chapters. Now I’ll proceed with my sermon on the sin of lying.”

                                  A man found a cocoon of a butterfly. One day a small opening appeared. He watched the butterfly for hours as it struggled to force its body through the little hole. Suddenly it stopped making any progress and looked like it was stuck. The man wanted to help the butterfly. He took a pair of scissors and cut off the remaining cocoon. The butterfly emerged easily, although it had a swollen body and small, shriveled wings. The butterfly never could fly it just crawled around.
                                  He didn’t understand that the restricting cocoon and the struggle needed by the butterfly to get itself through the small opening; was God’s way of forcing fluid from the body of the butterfly into its wings. Which would prepare it for flying once it was out of the cocoon.
                                  Moral of the story: Our struggles in life develop our strengths.

                                  WELCOME: Bro. Ricky Hackett and wife Paula, let’s make them feel at home.

                                  Words from Bro. Ricky Hackett
                                  I was born in Smith County, TN on August 14, 1957. I grew up in Mt Tabor MBC. It was there on the altar that I was saved in 1972 and was baptized into the fellowship of Mt Tabor a few days later by Bro. James Gray Beal. On the night that I was saved the Lord called me to preach while I was in my bed, but I didn’t tell it until 2 years later. I was going into my senior year of high school when I told my call to preach.
                                  In 1978, I married Paula Evitts to which 3 children were born: Patrick, Heather Huffines and Kristy Spurgen. We are blessed with 3 grandkids Hope, Hannah and Coen.
                                  I was ordained in February of 1981. At that time, I was working with a mission in Smith County but shortly there after I was called to pastor Caney Fork MBC. I have also pastored Cave Springs, Hogans Creek, Palm Tree in FL and Old Macedonia in KY. The last church that I pastored was Hogans Creek. It was the second time I had served as their pastor. I am presently doing a television mission effort called the Country Preacher.

                                  A wife invited some people to dinner. At the table, she turned to their six-year-old daughter and said, “Would you like to say the blessing?” I wouldn’t know what to say, the girl replied. Just say what you heard Mommy say. The daughter bowed her head and said, “Lord, why on earth did I invite all these people to dinner?”

                                  and of the Holy Ghost: 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always,

                                  If You Look for Me at Christmas

                                  You won’t need a special star

                                  I’m no longer just in Bethlehem,

                                  I’m right here where you are

                                  You might not be aware of me

                                  Amid the celebrations

                                  You will have to look beyond the stores

                                  And all the decorations

                                  But if you take a moment

                                  And listen to your heart you’ll find

                                  I’m waiting there for you

                                  You’re the one that I want to be with

                                  You’re the reason I came

                                  And you’ll find me in the stillness

                                  As I whisper your name.

                                  Love,

                                  JESUS

                                  We have a special treat in store on this Sunday, November 8th, with the return of Bro. Monty Shoulders bringing stories of his mission work and adventures in the verdant jungles of Belize. A love offering will be taken to help fund his soul-saving efforts in this mysterious corner of God’s creation where, as often as not, the name “Jesus” had never been heard…until, that is, until Bro. Monty came along! It’s a great story, a great Word, a great Work, and you’ll get a great Blessing!


                                  (6-14-20)

                                  As we prepare to return to Church at MMBC, may we stop to give God all Glory and Honor for this opportunity afforded unto us. It is with great Joy that we look forward to Sunday, June 14 at 10:30, for a return to worship services at our Church Sanctuary.

                                  Please join with us and pray that God will be Honored and Glorified. Pray that the Holy Spirit will be so strong that sinners will be convicted, seek the Lord and be saved!

                                  Please be aware that as we return to Church, There will be NO SUNDAY SCHOOL or NURSERY We will only have Sunday morning worship. We will not have a choir and dismissal will be by rows, and called out by Brother Sam with the offering plates placed on tables in the hallway as we exit the sanctuary.

                                  The building will be cleaned and sanitized.

                                  We are committed to making our Church building as safe as possible and to meet the suggested guidelines of the CDC and Governor Lee. As we attend Church Sunday June 14, here are a few items we all need to be aware of.

                                  Please know, also, that the backdoors to the new fellowship hall will be locked. There will be no accessibility thru the Fellowship Hall. You will have to enter and exit thru the side doors of the Church building.

                                  These suggestions are things we need to do as a church and individually to be sure the most vulnerable to the COVID 19 virus are safe. They are as follows:

                                  + It is recommended that we wear a mask as much as we can. Certainly, it is voluntary, but a good idea.

                                  + We will open the church doors Sunday morning at 9:30 to avoid crowding.

                                  + Ingress and egress lanes will be marked off. Seating will be marked off in the pews for families and for individuals. Please all families sit together.

                                  + We ask that each one do all you can to social distance while you are at church. While we realize that at times it will be difficult. Please do your best.

                                  + Please, no handshakes or hugs for a while. Please be extra cautious.

                                  +We will have hand sanitizer available in several areas. Please bring your own if you like.

                                  + Although we will do all we can to protect the most vulnerable, we must all assume personal responsibility for our own health.

                                  So please consider your own situation before you return to the church. If you are in one of the high risk categories to catch the virus then it might be wise to delay your return to services for a little while longer. We will certainly miss you but would hate for you to catch the virus. If you are sick, please be sure to stay home.

                                  Here are some suggested guidelines to follow:

                                  If you have been in close contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19 please quarantine yourself for at least 14 days before returning to church.

                                  · If you have a cough, shortness of breath or sore throat please allow proper time for these to cease before returning to church.

                                  · If you have had a fever in the last 48 hours please allow proper time for this to cease before returning to church.

                                  · If you have a new loss of taste or smell please allow proper time for this to cease before returning to church.

                                  · If you have had nausea, vomiting or diarrhea in the last 24 hours, please allow proper time for this to cease before returning to church.

                                  · Wearing a mask is recommended.

                                  · Wear gloves if you prefer.

                                  · Maintain 6 ft separation from each other when possible.

                                  The above guidelines are to protect the health of church members, their families, and any visitors that may attend while also providing a time of worship, service to God, and spiritual support for each one. We want to do our part to keep each other safe and still be able to feel a freeness to worship the Lord.
                                  Anyone that has any other suggestions, feel free to contact one of the Deacons.

                                  We know there will be some that will feel a need to stay home for a while longer, so we will continue to live stream the service/sermon on our MMBC Facebook page so you will be able to join us in the service.
                                  Please join with us and pray that God will bless and protect our Church worship time together.

                                  Please continue to reach out to one another, pray for each other, and stay close to God during this time.

                                  May God Bless!

                                  The Deacons have met and with prayerful, heavy hearts feel it is too soon to open our doors for worship at church. Services will remain cancelled through the month of May.

                                  Please continue to worship through the on-line services on the MMBC facebook page Sunday morning’s at 10:30, with Brother Sam preaching.

                                  As always thanks and God bless….


                                  Our former Pastor, Bro Paul Patterson, dear wife Mrs Betty has passed away.
                                  Please keep this family in your prayers

                                  Dear MMBC Member,

                                  In this turbulent time, we hope and pray you and your families are blessed. Thank you for your prayers for our Church as we continue to seek the guidance of God in searching for our pastor. Also, please consider how we may continue to serve and worship God as changes in our schedules are deemed warranted and necessary.

                                  As we face ever changing circumstances, locally and abroad due to the Corona virus, may we all look to the Master, our God and lean on Him for peace, comfort, and understanding. He does not make mistakes and with faith, the love of one another, and the love of our Church, we will make it through these trials together!

                                  As a congregation, we have to be aware that our Church expenses do not stop during this period. If we do not have the opportunity to meet together at church, please may we encourage you to mail your tithes to the church or to Brother Stuart Spicer, Treasurer, as your budget allows. We will deposit those contributions as normal so that we continue to meet our obligations. Please mail to the following address:

                                  A little boy opened the big old family Bible with fascination, and looked at the old pages as he turned them. Suddenly, something fell out of the Bible, he picked it up and looked closely. It was an old leaf that had been pressed between the pages. Momma, look what I found. With astonishment the little boy said, “I think it’s Adam’s suit.”

                                  The Will of God

                                  By Rebekah Nolt

                                  The will of God will never take you,
                                  Where the grace of God cannot keep you.
                                  Where the arms of God cannot support you,
                                  Where the riches of God cannot supply your needs,
                                  Where the power of God cannot endow you.

                                  The will of God will never take you,
                                  Where the spirit of God cannot work through you,
                                  Where the wisdom of God cannot teach you,
                                  Where the army of God cannot protect you,
                                  Where the hands of God cannot mold you.

                                  The will of God will never take you,
                                  Where the comfort of God cannot dry your tears,
                                  Where the Word of God cannot feed you,
                                  Where the miracles of God cannot be done for you,
                                  Where the omnipresence of God cannot find you.

                                  Here is a letter from Blackman School thanking the church for paying off that lunch debt…

                                  To the dear members of the Murfreesboro Missionary Baptist Church,
                                  Words cannot express the thankfulness in our hearts for your generous kindness. God holds the record and we pray He will reward you for your giving.
                                  We can only imagine the grateful hearts around Murfreesboro that will look at their lunch balance to find it has been paid off by good Samaritans. May God richly bless you individually and as a local body. You have blessed our children, and in turn, blessed our families, our school, our community, and the Lord will bless your gift.
                                  Thank you again,
                                  Cafeteria Staff – Blackman Elementary

                                  We will be collecting items for the Murfreesboro Cold Patrol through the end of January. They sent me the needs for now: hand warmers, gloves, socks and tarps are the biggest needs.
                                  We can also use tents, sleeping bags, and $5-$10 dollar fast food gift cards.

                                  I will place a box in the fellowship hall should anyone want to donate to this nonprofit. Let me know if you have any questions.

                                  God Bless you all.

                                  In Sunday School, they were teaching how God created everything, including human beings. Little Johnny seemed especially intent when they told him how Eve was created out of one of Adam’s ribs. Later in the week, his mother noticed him lying down as though he were ill, and said, “Johnny what is the matter?” Little Johnny responded, “I have a pain in my side. I think I’m going to have a wife.”

                                  A Message from Dwight Faircloth, Deacon

                                  Praise God for a wonderful church he has provided for us to worship and enjoy. 2019 has been a great year in many ways. We have more to thank God for than we even realize. I’m excited about the upcoming year 2020. I believe it will be even better if we give God the glory. How great thou art. Our heavenly father watches over us.

                                  God has and will provide for us is what we believe. This Sunday is the last Lords day of the year. I think one way to honor our Lord is to give back to the Lord a part of what he has given us. This would be a good Sunday to give generously to the Lord and help reduce our debt on the current building. If you believe as I do, please give a generous love offering this Sunday. After all it belongs to God. This is one of the most giving churches I have ever been a part of.

                                  Also, please pray daily for the deacons as they search for God’s man to lead our church full time. We covet your prayers. May you and your family have the best year ever.

                                  In his service,
                                  Dwight Faircloth, Deacon

                                  A Thank You from
                                  The Beatrice Petty Family…

                                  Dear Church Family, Thank you so much for the beautiful flowers for my mother, Beatrice Petty’s funeral. They were a very sweet reminder of how much our church means to us. Thank you all for caring for us. May God bless each of you is our prayer.

                                  Love and Blessings,
                                  Shirley Dillard

                                  A Thank You from Bro Massey…
                                  Judy and I send our thanks for the Christmas love offering of $581.00. May God richly bless your church in 2020.

                                  For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.
                                  Luke 2:11

                                  A Sunday school teacher was discussing the Ten Commandments with her five and six year olds, After explaining the commandment to “honor” thy Father and thy Mother, she asked, is there a commandment that teaches us how to treat our brothers and sisters?”
                                  Without missing a beat one little boy (the oldest of a family) answered, “Thou shall not kill.”

                                  Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem.
                                  Matthew 2:1
                                  Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.
                                  Matthew 2:2

                                  TWO LITTLE BOYS
                                  A couple had two little boys, age 8 and 10, who were excessively mischievous. The two were always getting into trouble and their parents could be assured that if any mischief occurred in their town their two young sons were in some way involved.
                                  The parents were at their wits end as to what to do about their sons’ behavior. The mother had heard that a clergyman in town had been successful in disciplining children in the past, so she asked her husband if he thought they should send the boys to speak with the clergyman.
                                  The husband said, “We might as well. We need to do something before I really lose my temper!” The clergyman agreed to speak with the boys, asked to see them individually. The 8 year old went to meet with him first.
                                  The clergyman sat the boy down and asked him sternly, “Where is God?”
                                  The boy made no response, so the clergyman repeated the question in an even sterner tone. “Where is God?” Again the boy made no attempt to answer. So the clergyman raised his voice even more and shook his finger in the boy’s face, “WHERE IS GOD?”
                                  At that the boy bolted from the room and ran directly home, slamming himself in the closet. His older brother followed him into the closet and asked what had happened. The younger brother replied, “We are in BIG trouble this time. God is missing and they think we did it.”

                                  But if you take a moment
                                  And listen to your heart you’ll find
                                  I’m waiting there for you
                                  You’re the one I want to be with

                                  And you’ll find me in the stillness
                                  As I whisper your name.
                                  Love,

                                  History of Murfreesboro Missionary Baptist Church
                                  Organized November 10, 1984

                                  The mission work for Murfreesboro Missionary Baptist Church was begun May, 1980 by Elders Bill Green and Ray Sutton. The work was under the authority of Long Fork Missionary Baptist Church, Macon County (Brother Green’s home church). The mission met in the following locations during its early years:
                                  • Small building on corner of Mercury Boulevard and Broad Street- May- July, 1980
                                  • An under construction building on corner of Lokey and Memorial (later Dr. Compton’s dental office) from July, 1980-early 1981.
                                  • Methodist Church Building on 4th Avenue from 1981-1992.
                                  1982, Brother Sutton left to begin another pastorate. Elder James Shoulders began to assist with the work.

                                  November 10, 1984 the mission was organized into Murfreesboro Missionary Baptist Church with twelve charter members: Elder Bill Green, Ruth Green, Beth Green, Elder James Shoulders, Sue Shoulders, Michelle Shoulders, Jim Holland, Modena Holland, Rick Ellis, Patricia Ellis, Tammy West, and Jane Griffith

                                  Elder Bill Green was elected as the first pastor.

                                  In 1992, the church bought and renovated property on North Church Street. This was the first time the church owned its place of worship. We worshipped there until 2008 when we sold the property in anticipation of building at our present location. We moved into our present building the 3rd Sunday In January, 2010. During the interim, we met in the cafeteria at Providence Christian Academy.

                                  Brother Key Dillard moved his membership from Mount Calvary in 1993 and became the first deacon. The church has held four ordinations:
                                  1. 1992- Bruce Dawson-minister, Roger West and Jim Holland-deacons
                                  2. 2004- Kevin Dillard and Lanny Jenkins-deacons
                                  3. 2015- Dillon Clemons-minister
                                  4. 2019- Brad Taylor and Tom Elkins-deacons
                                  Other deacons who have transferred their membership to our church are A.M. Jones (deceased), Dwight Faircloth, Panuel Lowry and Randall Barnette.

                                  The following have served as pastors:

                                          • Elder Bill Green 1984-1990
                                          • Elder Don McDonald 1990-1994
                                          • Elder Paul Patterson 1995-1998
                                          • Elder Darren Bonee 1999-2003
                                          • Elder Rick Oliver 2003-2006
                                          • Elder Kenneth Massey- 2007-present

                                  Present church membership is 227.

                                  As my time as church pianist and editor of the bulletin comes to an end, it is with a heavy heart I prepare this “last bulletin.” It has been a labor of love as I researched for articles and combed the Bible for suitable scriptures to give meaning to items in the bulletin. I thank each and every one of you who has kept me informed of on-going and up-coming events of the church and have encouraged me when I needed it most. Thank you for the calls and cards and above all, the prayers for us as we try to take care of my mother. I may not be here in person, but I am in spirit as I whisper a prayer for the services. I love you all. Shirley Dillard

                                  THE CANDY CORN GOSPEL

                                  Every autumn a fresh crop of candy corn pops up in the stores and reminds us that harvest time is near. Invented in the 1880s, candy corn has been a sweet success for over 130 years. This seed-shaped confection can become a symbol of God’s Word and how He uses us to accomplish His heavenly harvest. Read the Parable of the Sower (Luke 8:8-15). Jesus wants us to be generous in scattering His seed so that all might have the chance to hear God’s Word and the message of salvation. Now take a look at what each color of the candy corn represents. White – The tip of the candy corn is pure white and stands for God the Father who is perfect, holy, and righteous. At the top of the candy corn pointing upward toward God, it reminds us that Jesus can make our hearts white and clean. No matter how many mistakes we have made, if we ask Jesus to be our Savior, He will wash our sins away and give us a new life with Him that will never end. Orange – Reminds us of all of the pumpkins we see this time of year. Every pumpkin is filled with gunk that has to be cleaned out before it can have a light placed inside it. It’s the same way with our hearts, when we ask Jesus to be our Savior, He cleans the gunk we call sin out of our hearts. The large, tapered section of this candy also represents the large harvest field. There are many who need to hear God’s offer of forgiveness. The seed is His Word we are to proclaim to others. It is the Holy Spirit who takes the seed and nurtures faith in man’s heart. Yellow – Reminds us of the streets of gold in heaven and the eternal life that God has promised to everyone who believes in Him. It represents the light of Jesus Christ, the Word in flesh. He calls us to be His witnesses. When we scatter the seed of God’s Word, we spread His light and the message of salvation to the world. We are the harvest workers as we walk in the light of Christ. “Therefore said he unto them, the harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest.” (Luke 10:2). A Symbol of Prayer – As it points upwards, the candy corn also reminds us to pray. Each time you eat this candy say a prayer and ask God to bless His Word, the workers, and the harvest.

                                  Encouraging Frogs

                                  As a group of frogs were traveling through the woods, two of them fell into a deep pit. When the other frogs crowded around the pit and saw how deep it was, they told the two frogs that there was no hope left for them. However, the two frogs decided to ignore what the others were saying, and they proceeded to try and jump out of the pit. Despite their efforts, the group of frogs at the top of the pit were still saying they should just give up because they would never make it out. Eventually, one of the frogs took heed to what the others were saying, gave up, and fell to his death. The other frog continued to jump as hard as he could. The crowd of frogs continued to yell at him to stop the pain and just die. The more they yelled, the harder he jumped, and finally, he made it out. When he got out, the other frogs said, “Did you not hear us?” The frog explained to them that he was deaf. He thought they were encouraging him the entire time.

                                  Moral of the story: Your words can have a big effect on other’s lives. Think about what you say before it comes out of your mouth. It might just be the difference between life and death.

                                  I Peter 3: 10 For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile: Job 6:24 Teach me, and I will hold my tongue: and cause me to understand wherein I have erred. James 3:5 Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth!

                                  Two Builders of Sandcastles
                                  Author Unknown

                                  As summer comes to a close, a little boy is on his knees scooping and packing the sand with plastic shovels into a bright blue bucket. Then, he upends the bucket on the surface and lifts it. And, to the delight of the little architect, a castle tower is created. All afternoon he works. Spooning out the moat. Packing the walls. Bottle tops and popsicle sticks will be bridges. A sandcastle will be built.

                                  Meanwhile, in the big city, a man is in his office hard at work constructing a different kind of sandcastle. He shuffles papers into stacks and delegates assignments. He cradles the phone on his shoulder and punches the keyboard with his fingers. Numbers are juggled and contracts are signed and much to the delight of the man, a profit is made. All his life he will work formulating the plans. Forecasting the future. Building an empire.

                                  Two builders of castles. They have much in common. They shape granules into grandeurs. They see nothing and make something. They are diligent and determined. And for both, the tide will rise and the end will come. Yet that is where the similarities cease. For the little boy sees the end while the man ignores it. Watch the boy as dusk approaches. As the waves near, the wise child jumps to his feet and begins to clap. There is no sorrow. No fear. No regret. He knew this would happen. He is not surprised. And when the great breaker crashes into his castle and his masterpiece is sucked into the sea, he smiles. He picks up his tools, takes his father’s hand, and goes home happy. The grownup, however, is not so wise. As the wave of years collapses on his castle, he is terrified. He hovers over the sandy monument to protect it. He blocks the waves from the walls he has made. Salt-water soaked and shivering he snarls at the incoming tide. “It’s my castle,” he defies. The ocean need not respond. Both know to whom the sand belongs… You may not know much about sandcastles, but children do. Watch them and learn. Go ahead and build, but build with a child’s heart. When the sun sets and the tides take – applaud. Salute the process of life and go home. Remember to whom the sand belongs!

                                  Matthew 18:3-4 . . . Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. 4) Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 26) And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: 27) And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.

                                  DO YOU GROW GOOD CORN?

                                  There once was a farmer who grew award-winning corn. Each year he entered his corn in the state fair where it won a blue ribbon. One year a newspaper reporter interviewed him and learned something interesting about how he grew it. The reporter discovered that the farmer shared his seed corn with his neighbors. “How can you afford to share your best seed corn with your neighbors when they are entering corn in competition with yours each year?” the reporter asked. “Why sir,” said the farmer, “didn’t you know? The wind picks up pollen from the ripening corn and swirls it from field to field. If my neighbors grow inferior corn, cross-pollination will steadily degrade the quality of my corn. If I am to grow good corn, I must help my neighbors grow good corn.” He was very much aware of the connectedness of life. His corn could not improve unless his neighbor’s corn also improved. So it is with our lives. The value of a life is measured by the lives it touches. And those who choose to be happy must help others to find happiness, for themselves. The lesson for each of us is this: if we are to grow good corn, we must help our neighbors grow good corn. It is possible to give away and become richer! It is also possible to hold on too tightly and lose everything. Yes, the liberal man shall be rich! By watering others, he waters himself.

                                  1 Thessalonians 5:11 – Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do.

                                  1 Corinthians 12:26 – And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.

                                  Memories
                                  By M. S. Lowndes

                                  Memories are a treasure
                                  The wealth we have inside,
                                  Special times and sad times,
                                  They’re all part of life

                                  We often like to retreat
                                  To the memories of yesterday,
                                  The tender moments we had
                                  That can never be replaced

                                  When we see that the Lord
                                  Was there throughout our lives
                                  And see the turns we made
                                  With Him as our guide

                                  We see the plan He had
                                  To bring us where we are,
                                  We see the road we’ve travelled
                                  Has brought us on this far

                                  So memories of the past
                                  Help us trust to thee
                                  Our future years with gladness
                                  That we cannot yet see

                                  For if in the Father’s care
                                  We place each day we live,
                                  We will know His inner peace
                                  And His grace He freely gives.

                                  Grandparents Day, taking place the Sunday after Labor Day every year, is a holiday for celebrating your parents’ parents. In West Virginia, native Marian McQuade first thought of the idea for the holiday in 1956. She was trying to plan a celebration for the elderly members of her community. She made the sad discovery that many of the senior citizens in the nursing home didn’t often receive visits from their families. So she set out to designate a day to honor and appreciate grandparents. Thanks to a federal proclamation signed by President Jimmy Carter on August 3, 1978, Grandparents Day became an official holiday. The statute cites the day’s purpose: “…to honor grand-parents, to give grandparents an opportunity to show love for their children’s children, and to help children become aware of strength, information, and guidance older people can offer.”

                                  HAPPY LABOR DAY – The first Monday in September is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. The first Labor Day holiday was celebrated on Tuesday, September 5, 1882, in New York City. The day constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country. 1 Samuel 25:6 And thus shall ye say to him that liveth in prosperity, Peace be both to thee, and peace be to thine house, and peace be unto all that thou hast. Psalms 118:25 Save now, I beseech thee, O LORD: O LORD, I beseech thee, send now prosperity. May God continue to richly bless America.

                                  Cupcakes & Root Beer
                                  By Julia A. Manhana

                                  There once was a little boy who wanted to meet God. He knew it was a long trip to where God lived, so he loaded his backpack with cupcakes, several bottles of root beer and started on his journey. When he had gone about three blocks, he saw an elderly woman sitting on a park bench watching the pigeons. The boy sat down next to her and opened his backpack. He was about to take a drink from his root beer when he noticed the lady looked hungry, so he offered her a cupcake. She gratefully accepted and smiled at him. Her smile was so wonderful that he wanted to see it again, so he offered a root beer as well. Once again she smiled at him. The boy was delighted! As the afternoon slipped away, the boy got up to leave. But before he had gone no more than a few steps, he turned around and ran back to the old woman, giving her a big hug. She gave him her biggest smile ever.
                                  When the boy arrived home his Mother was surprised by the look of joy on
                                  his face. She asked, “What has made you so happy today?” He replied, “I
                                  had lunch with God.” Before his mother could respond he added, “You know
                                  what? She’s got the most beautiful smile in the whole world!” Meanwhile,
                                  the old woman, also radiant with joy, returned to her home. Her son was
                                  stunned by the look of peace on her face. He asked, “Mother, what has made you so happy today?” She replied, “I ate cupcakes in the park with God.” And before her son could reply, she added, “You know, he is much younger than I expected.”
                                  .
                                  Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring – all of which have the potential to turn a life around. People come into our lives for a reason, a season, or a lifetime. Take no one for granted and embrace all equally with joy!

                                  Hebrews 13:2 Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.

                                  Perspective

                                  One day a very wealthy father took his young son on a trip to the country to show him how poor people can be. They spent a day and a night at the farm of a very poor family. When they got back from their trip, the father asked his son, “How was the trip?” Very good, Dad!” “Did you see how poor people can be?” the father asked. “Yes I did!” “And what did you learn?” The son answered, “I saw that we have a dog at home, and they have four. We have a pool that reaches to the middle of the garden, they have a creek that has no end. We have imported lamps in the garden, they have the stars. Our patio reaches to the front yard, they have a whole horizon.” When the little boy was finished, his father was speechless. His son added, “Thanks, Dad, for showing me how poor we are!” Isn’t it true that it all depends on the way you look at things? If you have God’s salvation, love, friends, family, health, good humor and a positive attitude toward life, you’ve got everything! You can’t buy any of these things. You can have all the material possessions you can imagine, but if you are without God, you have nothing! Matthew 5:3 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Deuteronomy 15:7 If there be among you a poor man of one of thy brethren within any of thy gates in thy land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not harden thine heart, nor shut thine hand from thy poor brother: Deuteronomy 15:11 For the poor shall never cease out of the land: therefore I command thee, saying, Thou shalt open thine hand wide unto thy brother, to thy poor, and to thy needy, in thy land.

                                  BURNT BISCUITS

                                  When I was a little boy 5 years of age, living on the farm, Mama liked to start the day right by cooking a tasteful breakfast, usually at 5:00 a.m. One morning, Mama placed bacon, eggs and a plate of extremely burned biscuits in the center of the table. I waited to see if Dad would notice, but all he did was reach for a biscuit as he smiled at Mama. He ate every bite of that thing … never made a face or said a word about it. When I got up from the table that morning, I remember hearing Mama apologize to Dad for burning the biscuits. And I’ll never forget what he said, “Honey, I love burned biscuits every now and then.” Later that morning, I asked him if he really liked his biscuits burned? He wrapped me in his arms and said, “Your Mama puts in a hard day at work every day. She cooks our food with love, and she gets tired: There’s just as much love in a burned biscuit as there is in an unburned one. And besides, a little burned biscuit every now and then never hurt anybody! As I’ve grown older, I’ve thought about that long ago morning many times. Life is not always fair, and it is full of imperfect things and imperfect people. Learning to accept each other’s faults and choosing to celebrate each other’s differences is one of the most important keys to creating healthy, growing, and lasting relationships. May we all learn to take the good, bad and ugly parts of life and overcome them with kindness. Learn to be resilient. Be thoughtful, considerate and kinder than necessary, because everybody you meet is fighting some kind of battle. Don’t put the key to your happiness in someone else’s pocket — keep it in your own. So, please pass me a biscuit, and yeah, the burned one will be just fine! Remember, “As rain and sunshine nourish the flowers, so praise and encouragement nourishes the human spirit.”

                                  Galatians 6:2 Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.
                                  I Peter 3:8-9 Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous: 9 Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing.

                                  With the upcoming church trip to The Ark, here are a few

                                  “POINTS TO PONDER.”

                                  All I Really Need to Know About Life
                                  I Learned from Noah’s Ark

                                   Don’t miss the boat
                                   Don’t forget we’re all in the same boat.
                                   Plan ahead—it wasn’t raining when Noah built the Ark.
                                   Stay fit-when you’re 600 years old someone might ask you to do something really big.
                                   Don’t listen to critics, just get on with what has to be done.
                                   For safety’s sake travel in pairs.
                                   Two heads are better than one.
                                   Build your future on high ground.
                                   Speed isn’t always an advantage, after all, the, snails were on the, same ark with the cheetahs.
                                   When you are stressed, float a while.
                                   Remember the ark was built by amateurs; the Titanic was built by professionals.
                                   Remember that the woodpeckers inside are a larger threat than the storm outside.

                                  Points to ponder
                                  Prayer is not a “spare wheel” that you pull out
                                  when in trouble, but it is a “steering wheel” that
                                  directs the right path throughout.

                                  Reminder to All Members: Tomorrow night, Monday, August 5, a special called meeting will be held here at the church at 7:00 PM to consider purchasing the adjoining lot for future needs of the church. All members urged to attend.

                                  Lessons from a Dandelion

                                  As a young child, I would bring bouquets of brilliant yellow flowers to my mother. It didn’t matter that the stems felt sticky or that both my parents did everything they could to prevent the presence of these flowers in the lawn, I thought they were beautiful, and there were so many of them! I spent hours picking the flowers, and the supply of dandelions never ran out. My father or brothers would chop off all the heads with the lawnmower at least once a week, but that didn’t stop these hardy wonders. And for those flowers that escaped the honor of being hand-delivered to my mother or the sharp blades of the lawn mower, there was another level of existence. The soft, round puffs of a dandelion gone to seed caused endless giggles and squeals of delight as we unwittingly spread this flower across the yard. As an adult, I now work in my garden pulling unwanted weeds out of the space that will become a haven for tomatoes, corn, sunflowers and peas. I again marveled at the flower that some call a weed. I think, “If only I had the staying power of a dandelion. If only I could stretch my roots so deep and straight that something tugging on my stem couldn’t separate me completely from the source that feeds me life. If only I could come back to face the world with a bright,
                                  sunshiny face after someone has run me over with a lawn-
                                  mower or worse, purposely attacked me in an attempt to destroy
                                  me. If only my foliage was a nutritious source of vitamins that help
                                  others grow. If only I could spread love and encouragement as freely
                                  and fully as this flower spreads seeds of itself.” Depending on God as
                                  our source of nutrients, I hope we can stretch our roots deep enough that the strongest poison can’t reach our souls. I hope that we can overcome the poisons of anger, fear, hate, criticism and competitiveness. I pray that we can see flowers in a world that sees weeds.

                                  Two Days We Should Not Worry Unknown Author

                                  There are two days in every week about which we should not worry, two days which should be kept free from fear and apprehension. One of these days is “Yesterday” with all its mistakes and cares, its faults and blunders, its aches and pains. “Yesterday” has passed forever beyond our control. All the money in the world cannot bring back “Yesterday.” We cannot undo a single act we performed; we cannot erase a single word we said. “Yesterday” is gone forever. The second day we should not worry about is “Tomorrow” with all its possible adversities, its burdens, its large promise and its poor performance; “Tomorrow” is also beyond our immediate control. If God wills it so, “Tomorrow’s” sun will rise, either in splendor or behind a mask of clouds. Until it does, we have no stake in “Tomorrow,” for it is yet to be born. This leaves only one day, “Today.” Any person can fight the battle of just one day. It is when you and I add the burdens of “Yesterday” and “Tomorrow” that we break down. It is not the experience of “Today” that drives a person mad, it is the remorse or bitterness of something which happened “Yesterday” and the dread of what “Tomorrow” may bring. Let us, therefore, Live Today, but prepare for “Tomorrow.” Prepare by seeking the Lord’s salvation!

                                  Matthew 6:34 – Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day [is] the evil thereof.
                                  Philippians 4:19 – But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
                                  John 16:33 – These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
                                  Romans 8:28 – And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to [his] purpose.

                                  Do What You Can!
                                  by Katherine Kehler

                                  Psalm 92:12-15 The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon. 13 Those that be planted in the house of the LORD shall flourish in the courts of our God. 14 They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be fat and flourishing; 15 To shew that the LORD is upright: he is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him.

                                  Theodore Roosevelt once made the thought-provoking comment. “Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.” Getting older and experiencing all the various stages of “body rot” sometimes causes one to wonder if they can still be fruitful. Try as we may, we will never fully stop the inevitable — getting old and frail — unless the Lord takes us home first. We can exercise, get cosmetic surgery, take vitamins galore, but that won’t delay the guarantee that our life on earth will one day come to an end. God has chosen that day, and when it comes, He will take us home. Meanwhile, He has things for us to do. ● We can worship Him and pray for our family, believers and unbelievers, leaders, and friends. ● We can tell some-one every week what Christ is doing for us, about an answered prayer or a special promise or encouragement He gave to us. If each of us told one person about Jesus each week, each of us would have shared the gospel with fifty-two people in one year. We can do this by letter, by e-mail, or in conversation. ● We can encourage someone each day — brighten some-one’s day. No one has ever suffered from too much encouragement. ● We can smile. It is so much nicer to be friendly than grumpy. ● We can serve. We can visit the elderly. We can send cards of encouragement to those enduring trials. ● We can give. The temptation to hoard the resources God has given us is always there, but God wants us to give liberally. Ask God what He would like you to do for Him today and tomorrow. He will answer you. Be on the alert for opportunities. May our prayer be, “Father, thank You that You have something for us to do and to share — even in old age. Cause us to keep looking for opportunities to serve You and others. Amen”

We need the jar lids from items like spaghetti sauce, pickles or salsa. There will be a box in the kitchen for donations until July 7. Thanks for your help.

                                  Message from Dwight Faircloth, Deacon: Dear Church Family, This is our fifth Sunday of the quarter. The church voted to put the entire fifth Sunday offerings on the principal of our loan on the church property. Knowing what a loving and giving church family we have, I trust you will give the best love offering you can give to reduce the loan on the property. We want to be good stewards of God’s money. After all, everything we have comes from God, and we feel this would be honoring what God has trusted us with. Please pray about God’s will in giving the very best love offering we can give today. Thank you in advance for your generous love offering. God bless each and every one.

                                  On July 4, 1776, the 13 colonies claimed their independence from England, an event which eventually led to the formation of the United States. Each year on the fourth of July, also known as Independence Day, Americans celebrate this historic event.

                                  Note from Do Re Mi Gospel Music Academy: We have just completed one of our most successful Do Re Mi Gospel Music Academy’s ever. Our 18th session saw 130 registered students from six different states enjoy God’s blessings in Shape Note music education.

                                  Over thirty staff and countless volunteers joined in the two weeks and along with the students sat in “Heavenly places” when God’s Sweet Spirit came on the scene during our Assemblies and in class time. I give THANKS to the many of MMBC who helped in every way possible to make this session one of heartfelt Joy in learning, singing and playing Shape Note music. May God bless you is my prayer.

                                  In Christ,
                                  Poppa Key, Director

                                  A Life of Service
                                  By Angela
                                  A life of service really is a thing that you should treasure
                                  For you will make a difference to this world that lasts forever.
                                  For those who are around someone whose life has good intent
                                  Will always and forever be affected by their scent.
                                  Whilst you may humbly fail to see the permeating heat
                                  That comes from all your kindness to the people that you meet,
                                  Yet others do appreciate the blessing that you bring.
                                  It adds a glow to life, just as the sunshine does in spring.
                                  You may not ever notice it. You may not ever know
                                  The beauty of your life’s work, when humbly put on show.
                                  So, never feel resentment; guard your heart as if it’s gold.
                                  Just wear the belt of righteousness, and let God’s truth unfold.
                                  And don’t rely on gratitude for all the things you do,
                                  But ask the Lord for grace and love to help you see them through.
                                  Enjoy your special role and know the privilege is yours:
                                  God chooses workers carefully to compliment His cause.
                                  And be assured that many of the seeds you sow will root
                                  And in your absence will go on to flourish and bear fruit.
                                  So live in humble servitude, content that God above
                                  Is watching with a father’s pride, to shower you with love.

                                  BURNT BISCUITS – A Lesson Learned at Breakfast

                                  As Mama placed the eggs, bacon and fried apples, along with a pan of extremely burned biscuits in the center of the table, I remember waiting to see if Dad would notice. But all he did was reach for a biscuit, as he smiled at Mama. I remember watching him smear butter and jelly on that ugly burned biscuit. He ate every bite of that thing … never made a face or said a word about it. When I got up from the table that morning, I remember hearing Mama apologize to Dad for burning the biscuits. And I’ll never forget what he said. “Honey, I love burned biscuits every now and then.” Later that morning, I asked him if he really liked his biscuits burned. He wrapped me in his arms and said, “Your Mama puts in a hard day at work every day, and she gets tired. There’s just as much love in a burned biscuit as there is in an unburned one, and besides, a little burned biscuit every now and then never hurt anybody! As I’ve grown older, I’ve thought about that morning many times. Life is not always fair. It is full of imperfect things and imperfect people, but I’ve learned over the years that learning to accept each other’s faults and choosing to celebrate each others differences is one of the most important keys to creating healthy, growing, and lasting relationships. My wish for each of my children and grandchildren is that they will learn to take the good, bad and ugly parts of their life and overcome them with kindness: Because in the end… true thoughtfulness, forgiveness and consideration will give you a relationship where a burnt biscuit ain’t such a big deal! This can be extended to any relationship. In fact, understanding is the real basis of all relationships. Learn to be resilient. Be kinder than necessary because everybody you meet is fighting some kind of battle. Don’t put the key to your happiness in someone else’s pocket — keep it in your own. So, please pass me a biscuit, and yeah, the burned one will be just fine! Remember, “As rain and sunshine nourish the flowers, so praise and encouragement nourishes the human spirit.” This is the lesson I learned at breakfast 80 years ago.

                                  The Mike Lefevre Quartet will be in concert Thursday, May 16, at 7PM, here at the church. This is a benefit for the scholarship fund at Do Re Mi Gospel Music Academy. Please come and support this effort and bring a friend and the family with you. The group is one of the top gospel music quartets in America. What a golden opportunity for you to help with this cause. We need to have a full house for the concert. Let ‘s help our young folks. Every year we are training young folks to work in church music. The most important thing about this school is the fact folks are getting saved each year. If anyone cannot make it to the concert, but would like to donate to the scholarship fund, please give your donations to Key Dillard, Kris Dillard or myself by leaving a check made payable to DoReMi. Please be at church and pray for this effort. Thanks, Dwight Faircloth

                                  In daily life we must see that it is not happiness that makes us grateful, but gratefulness that makes us happy. There is always, always, always something to be thankful for. Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it. William Ward
                                  Colossians 3:15 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful. Psalms 100:4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

                                  “Legend” of the dogwood . At the time of the crucifixion, the dogwood had reached the size of the mighty oak tree. So strong and firm was the wood that it was chosen as the timber for Jesus’ cross. To be used for such a cruel purpose greatly distressed the dogwood. While nailed upon it, Jesus sensed this, and in his compassion said. “Because of your pity for my suffering, never again shall the dogwood tree grow large enough to be used for a cross. Henceforth, it shall be slender, bent, and twisted, and its blossoms shall be in the form of a cross–two long and two short petals. In the center of the outer edge of each petal will be the print of nails. In the center of the flower, stained with blood, will be a crown of thorns so that all who see it will remember.

                                  The Easter Lily, the beautiful trumpet-shaped white flower, symbolizes purity, virtue, innocence, hope and life—the spiritual essence of Easter. Often called the “white-robed apostles of hope,” lilies were found growing in the Garden of Gethsemane after Christ’s agony. Tradition has it that the beautiful white lilies sprung up where
                                  drops of Christ’s sweat fell to the ground in his final hours of sorrow and deep distress. Another tradition has it that the lily sprang from the repentant tears of Eve as she went forth from Paradise. A mark of purity and grace throughout the ages, the regal white Easter lily serves as a beautiful reminder that Easter is a time for rejoicing and celebrating.

                                  The Easter Lily, the beautiful trumpet-shaped white flower, symbolizes purity, virtue, innocence, hope and life—the spiritual essence of Easter. Often called the “white-robed apostles of hope,” lilies were found growing in the Garden of Gethsemane after Christ’s agony. Tradition has it that the beautiful white lilies sprung up where
                                  drops of Christ’s sweat fell to the ground in his final hours of sorrow and deep distress. Another tradition has it that the lily sprang from the repentant tears of Eve as she went forth from Paradise. A mark of purity and grace throughout the ages, the regal white Easter lily serves as a beautiful reminder that Easter is a time for rejoicing and celebrating.
