Good evening Maddoxtown!


I trust that all of you are well and practicing safe measures during this virus pandemic. I am sending this email this evening to inform you that due to the Governor's ban on gathering, as you know, we cannot allow persons to come by the church and just hangout. You may stop by and drop off your tithes and offerings, however, we need to do that as quickly as possible to avoid any issues with the governor's office. There will be a sign on the door stating the reasoning as well.

In addition, I will be sending an email to you tomorrow morning with a link for those who want to participate in our Bible study. You will need to download an app on your phone or computer called Zoom. You can do that at this link: Copy and paste it in your browser and download and install the app. The email you receive from me is an invitation to join the meeting, and it will have a browser link to click on with a passcode necessary to join. I will have the time set for 6:30pm tomorrow (Wednesday).  I will start the meeting promptly at that time, because we will have only 40 minutes to complete the meeting. Please join us, it will be a great exchange!


I miss you all terribly, but God is still in control. Email me if needed tomorrow if there are questions. However, once we get close to the meeting time, I will not be of much help. I will also have Sis. Travis to assist those who need help contacting.

During this time, God has allowed us to be separated from each other that he may show us how much we need each other to function properly as his church. God is also giving us an opportunity to learn to pray for each other, and reach out to each other by phone, email, Facebook, text messaging, or whatever social media method you use, in his name. Let us look closely at what we are doing, what we are posting or reposting, ranting or venting and remind ourselves who's we are. Then let us be diligent in our efforts to fulfill our calling and commissioning for Christ. Remember, God doesn't just do things for a reason, here is his reason: (Romans 8:28-39) - Hallelujah to the Lamb of God!

Much love for you all in Christ Jesus!

Good day Ladies and gentlemen!

I will be sending a set of self study lessons by email and as some of you may know, I will begin recording a weekly video lesson that corresponds with the lesson you have received. My intention is to get the lesson to you on Monday or Tuesday at the latest to give you an opportunity to look over it and do your homework. I will then teach the lesson on Wednesday of that week. I also realize that I do not have everyone's email address, and that some people (older) do not have email addresses or even internet. I am sorry for that, however, if some of you would print out copies and choose a person who does not have these capabilities, and drop them off at the homes, it will be greatly appreciated and a great benefit to us all!


I know these are difficult times, however, we must also know that these days serve as test to strengthen our faith in God. Just think about how you are still alive and able to speak, see, hear, touch and taste. Stay strong, stay faithful, stay steadfast, God is still in control! Read the reference below!
