East main informer, 11 24-20

  1. 1. 4 Vol. 45 November 24, 2020 Number 46 THANKSGIVING IS Thanksgiving is A time of gratitude to God, our Creator and Provider, Whose guidance and care go before us. And whose love is with us forever. Thanksgiving is A time to reflect on the changes, To remember that we, too, grow and change From one season of life to another. Thanksgiving is A time of changing seasons, when leaves turn golden In autumn's wake and apples are crisp In the first chill breezes of fall. Let us remember the true meaning of Thanksgiving. As we see the beauty of Autumn, Let us acknowledge the many blessings which are ours... Let us think of our families and friends And let us give thanks in our hearts. — Anonymous ELDERS Mike Childers..............397-6453 Dennis Hallmark..........255-5557 Mark Hitt.....................322-0917 Bobby Lindley.............260-9193 DEACONS Wade Bryan.................419-5552 William Harris.............416-8149 Ricky Lindsey..............255-8136 Jeff Mansel ..................871-0357 Jimmy Spearman .........840-8957 Michael Wilson ...........891-0891 MINISTERS Barry Kennedy....(931)787-7108 Alex Blackwelder (731)879-9196 SECRETARY Renee Childers Office...........................842-6116 Fax...............................842-7091 E-MAIL eastmaincoc38804@gmail.com WEB PAGE eastmaincoc.com SUNDAY SERVICES Early worship...............8:30 a.m. Bible class................9:30 a.m. Main worship.............10:00 a.m. Bible class.............11:15 a.m. Singing or Devotional Last Sunday of the Month MID-WEEK SERVICES Wednesday Classes .....7:00 p.m. 1606 East Main Street P.

  2. 2. THANKSGIVING IS SHOWN Barry Kennedy I once came across this post written by Jeff A. Jenkins, a gospel preacher in Texas. Notice his message and how we should realize that thanksgiving is shown. If you are a Christian someone took time to sit down with you and teach you the Gospel. Someone cared enough about you to take time from their schedule to walk with you through the Word. Someone introduced you to Jesus through their example, by showing you the love of Jesus, or by an invitation to learn about Church. Someone loved you enough to pray for you to find Jesus. Is there someone, perhaps several people on your prayer list? Is there someone who you can talk to about Christ today? Is there someone you can show Christ living in you through your kindness? May God help us to allow the light of His love to shine through us today! The gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus (Romans 6:23), but it is not a gift God expects us to hoard up for ourselves alone. If we are truly thankful for this gift, then show that hope and let God’s love and forgiveness shine forth from the lives we live. Happy Thanksgiving! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Sympathy Our sympathy is extended to Debbie Vines in the loss of her mother, Jill Rice, on November 17, after an extended illness. Funeral services were held on November 21 at Holland-Harris Funeral Home. Community Outreach Program Christmas Project The Community Outreach Program would like to invite you to adopt a Christmas Angel for the Holiday Season. These are needy children from area schools. There are Ziplock bags at the church building with the child’s name, their wish list and wrapping instructions. There will be times posted that you can pick up your Christmas Angel from a C.O.P. (Community Outreach Program) representative or from Renee at the church office during the day. Once you have chosen a Christmas Angel, it is IMPERATIVE that you register the child with a C.O.P. representative or Renee. GIFTS MUST BE RETURNED TO THE BUILDING BY DECEMBER 6, 2020. Thank you for your generosity in advance. Renee will be at the building Tues., Nov. 24 from 9:30 am-5:30 pm. Kristie Webb will be at the building from 2-4 p.m. Sun., Nov. 29. Please drive to the foyer doors & honk for someone to come out and assist you. East Main Sr. Saints (Age 60 & Above) Due to the Corona virus, the youth & their parents have decided that they will not host the traditional Sr. Saints’ luncheon this year. However, they would still like to honor these members with a carry out supper plate & happies delivered to your door on Sun., Dec. 6 around 5:00 p.m. Please call the church office if you would like the youth to deliver to your home. Thank You Notes I want to thank everyone for all the prayers, visits, cards, and flowers during my father’s illness and death. He considered East Main as his church family and he loved everyone of you. Thanks again.

If you could help, please contact Cassie Blackwelder or Renee Childers. We need green beans, mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole, bread/rolls, and pumpkin or pecan pie. From the Elders After much consideration, the elders have determined that ALL in person assemblies will be suspended from Monday, Nov. 23 through Saturday, Dec. 5. The primary factor in this decision was the knowledge that many “out of household” contacts would be taking place during the Thanksgiving holidays in the form of relatives from other places, students returning home from college, etc. These contacts will raise the likelihood that someone might inadvertently contact the virus and bring it into one of our assemblies. Streaming opportunities will be available on the following dates: Wednesday, Nov. 25: online Bible classes (Barry- EM Facebook/YouTube, Tim/Roger-Facebook, Mark- Zoom, Alex EM Facebook/YouTube). Sunday, Nov. 29: online worship service@10:00-EM Facebook, YouTube, and https://eastmaincoc.com/video/ Sunday, Nov. 29: online Bible classes (EM Facebook, YouTube, Zoom, etc.). Wednesday, Dec. 2: online Bible classes (Barry-EM Facebook/YouTube, Tim/Roger-Facebook, Mark-Zoom, Alex-Zoom). Sun., Dec. 6-we plan to resume our current “in person” schedule.
