From Around the State…
Greetings to you in the name of the Lord! Dorcas Club met and made craft items to sell at our World Mission Day. We made wreaths, crocheted dish cloths, an apron, scarves and hats. The following weekend, we had church clean-
Our Mission Day was on October, 7th. We had a snack shack selling nachos, drinks, popcorn and candies.also had a country store selling homemade craft items, homemade canned goods, and gifts. The main events were having Sister Ridlespurge talk to us about World Missions and explain where our money is going and why we do it, then our auction. It was entertaining as well as successful at raising funds. Our auctioneers were Brother Horne and Brother Ridlespurge and they did an outstanding job. We really appreciate the Hornes and the Ridlespurges coming to help us out and making this a success. God blessed us with over $800 in just a few hours with only 33 people in attendance. All proceeds that we received will go to October World. We also have a World Missions bake sale planned for October 28th. Please help us pray that God blesses us abundantly.
Please keep our members in your prayers, as many are still very sick. We will be praying for all of you. God bless!

Because we forgot to report last month we were not able to share what a wonderful impromptu Revival we had. I apologize to those who did not know about it. The Clarkson family from Florida had to flee the hurricane and we were blessed to have them in Alex City and Goodwater. They were not sure when they could go home so it was a night-
We had a CPMA celebration in honor of 76 years of this wonderful auxiliary. Sister Karen Keel did an outstanding job putting this together. It was a good service and we even enjoyed a CPMA cake.
We’re excited for fall and very thankful for the life we have in Christ Jesus.

This month we have been busy! We had a yard sale on October 7th and God blessed our efforts. We had many people come by to visit and we were able to raise some money as well. During the yard sale, several of the men went into the church and began doing some updates to the building. We have been able to update a few things along the way and are trying to make sure our building looks nice and in order.
Our youth were able to get together for a Saturday night Bible study that was a help and encouragement. God has been moving greatly in our services and we are all so thankful to serve a prayer-

October was a busy month for Bessemer. We had an ABM Workshop with Sister Allene Cox as guest speaker, with lots of good classes and training. We also had a Yard Sale this month. One of our members got married and brought his bride home: Congratulations Joshua & Lauren Dudley! Please remember the Pendlleys in your prayers.

In October, The Church of God in
Athens conducted it’s very first WMB service and raised over $500 for Missions. Praise the Lord! God bless them as they continue to labor for the Lord and the Church!

Greetings from West Lawrence. I’m sorry I forgot to send in my report for last month, so I will be reporting on some news from that month.
We are so thankful for God’s many blessings. We heard from the ones who got to attend the Minister’s Convention that it was great. Also, the ones who got to go to the ABM Workshop said it was a blessing.
We’ve had several visitors recently. Phillip and Annette Deitz and Bobby, Braden, and Tori. It was good to have Scott, Patricia and Jimmy back in Sunday School with us. They had been out sick.
Everyone had a good time over at Bill and Brenda Hearod’s house. We had singing and good fellowship. Brenda prepared lots of food and we all enjoyed it. Still continue to pray for Bill. He needs a complete healing and for God to work in his life.
Pray for us as we continue to pray for you.
