Free Spirits Gospel Singers
Spreading God’s word through song 

It is truly amazing to watch how God is using and blessing this group! Someone (who wishes to give God all the glory and keep none for himself) is paying for the production of the Free Spirits’ second CD! They will be recording their second project in about a month!

Also, God has added another member to the group. Roger Fisher (Vickie’s brother) is back with the group. You may remember Roger as the Free Spirits’ first bass player. Roger will now be playing an acoustic/electric guitar. I’m sure this addition will make a great sound even better!

The group will be ministering at Greene’s Chapel Baptist Church in Knoxville tonight at 6pm. Please continue to pray for them. God is answering your prayers as He blesses them and as He uses them to bless others!


“Make a joyful noise unto God, all ye lands: sing forth the honor of His name: Make His praise glorious.” Psalm 66:1-2


Junior Church

Praise God! Are you ready? Have you been praying? We are so thankful to be coming into the “Big Church" this week. We are very excited & nervous about this! The reason we wanted to bring the kids into the Big Church is to let them be a blessing to you as much as they have been to us. We want everyone to pray that every one is well (those that have been sick) and is able to be there. Satan has fought us hard, but he won't win!  We want to thank Shirley Stanton for everything that she has done in putting this ministry in the bulletins. And thank you Steve Nichols for putting this ministry on the web-site. There is one thing that April and I would like to say here; Remember to give the praise and glory to God for this ministry. This ministry is just like one of our puppets, without the hand inside, it would be just a lifeless piece of cloth. Jesus is the hand behind this ministry. Without Him we could do nothing! Please continue to pray for this ministry. Special thanks to pastor Tony and family, for having the loving heart and helping us with this ministry. If you have prayed for us, supported us with finances, or simply mentioned us to a neighbor or friend, then you have helped this ministry. Thank you all.

--Bobby & April

Just remember the rule: Everyone that is in Junior Church must participate.


Crimson Cross Bearers

Ladies, don’t forget… we’ll be meeting for our weekly Bible study this Thursday at 6:30! Everyone is welcome and encouraged to come. If you’ve never participated in the ladies’ group, or if you just haven’t been in a while, we encourage you to join us this week. Bring your Bible and be prepared to grow in the Lord and to get to know Him a bit better!

Thank you  to all of you who helped plan and prepare for April’s party (the real reason for Saturday’s “fellowship dinner”).

Thank you to all of you who helped to keep it a surprise!

Thank you to all of you who helped to clean up afterwards!

Thought For Today

We know that 80% of the town of Meulaboh in Aceh was destroyed by the Tsunami waves and 80% of the people also died. This is one of the towns that was hit the hardest.  But there is a fantastic testimony from Meulaboh. In that town are about 400 Christians. They wanted to celebrate Christmas on December 25th but were not allowed to do so by the Muslims of Meulaboh. They were told if they wanted to celebrate Christmas they needed to go outside the city of Meulaboh on a high hill and they can celebrate Christmas there. Because the Christians desired to celebrate Christmas the 400 believers left the city on December 25th and after they celebrated Christmas they stayed overnight on the hill.  As we all know, in the morning of Sunday, December 26 -2004, there was the earthquake followed by the Tsunami waves destroying most of the city of Meulaboh and thousands were killed. The 400 believers were on the mountain and were all saved from destruction.
Now the Muslims of Meulaboh are saying that the God of the Christians punished them for forbidding the Christians to celebrate Christmas in the city. Others are questioning why so many Muslims died while not even one of the Christians died there.  Had the Christians insisted on their rights to celebrate Christmas in the city, they would have all died. But because they humbled themselves and followed the advice of the Muslims they all were spared destruction and can now testify of God's marvelous protection. This is a testimony of the grace of God and the fact that as believers we have no rights in the world. Our right is to come before God and commit our lives to Him. Our right is kneeling down before the Lord Almighty and committing our ways to Him. He is our Father and is very capable to care for His children. Praise the Name of the Lord.

Psalms 18:1-19

To the chief Musician, [A Psalm] of David, the servant of the LORD, who spake unto the LORD the words of this song in the day [that] the LORD delivered him from the hand of all his enemies, and from the hand of Saul: And he said,> I will love thee, O LORD, my strength. The LORD [is] my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, [and] my high tower. I will call upon the LORD, [who is worthy] to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies. The sorrows of death compassed me, and the floods of ungodly men made me afraid. The sorrows of hell compassed me about: the snares of death prevented me. In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried unto my God: he heard my voice out of his temple, and my cry came before him, [even] into his ears. Then the earth shook and trembled; the foundations also of the hills moved and were shaken, because he was wroth. There went up a smoke out of his nostrils, and fire out of his mouth devoured: coals were kindled by it. He bowed the heavens also, and came down: and darkness [was] under his feet. And he rode upon a cherub, and did fly: yea, he did fly upon the wings of the wind. He made darkness his secret place; his pavilion round about him [were] dark waters [and] thick clouds of the skies. At the brightness [that was] before him his thick clouds passed, hail [stones] and coals of fire. The LORD also thundered in the heavens, and the Highest gave his voice; hail [stones] and coals of fire. Yea, he sent out his arrows, and scattered them; and he shot out lightnings, and discomfited them. Then the channels of waters were seen, and the foundations of the world were discovered at thy rebuke, O LORD, at the blast of the breath of thy nostrils. He sent from above, he took me, he drew me out of many waters. He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from them which hated me: for they were too strong for me. They prevented me in the day of my calamity: but the LORD was my stay. He brought me forth also into a large place; he delivered me, because he delighted in me.
ROMANS 14:19 Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another.
