Metro East Ministry Family,

What a great time at Fall Festival this past Sunday…….. great time!!! It's already half way through the week, hope you're staying close to God. I've been preparing & training for the 5K AND 20K bike ride on Nov. 15th. Well, yesterday both my tires on my bike went flat 13 miles from my home……. Well, let's just say it was a great opportunity for me to learn how to change a tire, I met soooo many nice bikers who offered to help me, I went too far in one day (26 miles round trip), gotta bring more water next time, my phone died & I'm quite sore. It's all good, I'm doing this for a good cause.



Every year in November we call our churches worldwide to support the work of Hope Worldwide. Check out my fund raising page for November -

Every year we ask each member to raise $52 ($1 for every week of the year) to be able to give towards supporting the work of Hope Worldwide – Please take time to ask your friends/ family/ neighbors to donate to Hope Worldwide. Do something you want to do to raise funds for Hope. We will have forms you can use to raise those monies at service this Sunday. Place all monies for Hope in Offering plates during services. Looking forward to preaching this Sun. out of Nehemiah 3 – "WE Won"!

Let's start something NEW…… Mondays are the days we pray for each other. Let's make every Tues. & Thurs. "Tell me something good Tuesdays/ Thursdays". Send out a text/ phone call/ email to a few people you know every Tues. & Thurs. telling them something good. This world is so dark and negative………. "Tell me something good".

If you want to listen to sermons we recorded (Aug., Sept. & Oct.), even this past Sunday's sermunion, go online -
