Hello Deer Flat Family,

If you’ve got a few minutes, I’ll get you caught up on some things I think you’ll want to know about…

TOMORROW – VETERAN’S SUNDAY:  We have enjoyed having the opportunity to honor and celebrate those who have served us as a Nation, and those who are currently serving.  Each year we endeavor to make this an outstanding day where we not only acknowledge our service men and women, but we always include a message of hope and healing for those who may be carrying lasting burdens over the experiences that were had during years of service.  This year will be no different. We have an outstanding guest, Priscilla Giddings. Her military career is nothing short of impressive. She was selected to fly a fighter aircraft, the A-10 Warthog. Upon completing fighter training at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, she was the only one in her class to be awarded “Top Gun,” a weapons employment precision award. She followed her A-10 assignment with a career-broadening assignment flying intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions in the MC-12. You will enjoy hearing her story of service to both GOD and Country.  Why not invite a friend for this special day!

24 HOURS OF PRAYER:  On the last weekend of November, we will be spending 24 hours in prayer.  You’ll have a chance to participate in this by simply signing up for a 30 minute slot, where you will pray and intercede for a variety of needs and situations.  You can do this from the convenience of your home. You’ll find a table in the lobby NEXT SUNDAY. Stop by the table and sign up for the time of your choosing. We believe this will result in many answers to prayer and a chance for God to work in ways that will be difference making in both the lives of people and their situations.  Thank you for stepping up and filling the gap!

THE HOLIDAY SEASON:  I know it’s hard to believe, but the spirt of Thanksgiving and Christmas is upon us.  These are OUTSTANDING opportunities for us to reach out to the unchurched and invite them to join you for an amazing experience at Deer Flat.  I will be doing a message on the last Sunday of November entitled – I Choose To Be Thankful.  As we move into December, we will be Unwrapping Christmas – our series for the month.  Beyond this we have 3 EXCEPTIONAL EVENTS:  1) The Christmas Musical and Drama, December 7,8, and 9.  2) The Children’s Christmas Program, December 16 3) Christmas Eve Service.   All of these are going to be outstanding. Lots of our people have dedicated themselves to make these events happen.  Let’s maximize on the season to lift up Jesus.

I am looking forward to being with you tomorrow.  Come expecting a great Lord’s Day. Between now and then, take some time to prayer for the day!  

Loving You and Him,

Pastor D
