In the ball park with Brother Andy The month of January 2012 flew by like a jet plane. Thank God our future appears one-day-at-a-time!
New sermon series The sermon series for the next two months is “Harvesting Righteousness.” This series is focused on how the Holy Spirit of God develops spiritual fruit in the Andy Boyd daily life of each believer. I refer you to Galatians 5 for a scriptural reference. The aim of the series is to become more like God as His righteous virtues consume our lives. The world may not need us, but it certainly needs Him and all He represents. May we grow in and exhibit His Love, His Joy, His Peace, His Patience, His Kindness, His Goodness, His Gentleness, and His Self Control. Remember, there is no law against these things. How amazing that such a statement could ever be true!!! We have seven more weeks to discover these realities. I’m looking forward to preaching this series. Please bring your friends and family.
Grace Plus Nothing This incredible study continues each Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. There is still room for newcomers. I have one additional book and can order more if needed. Come learn the difference between “PerformanceBased Acceptance” and “Acceptance-Based Performance.” If you learn the difference, it might transform your faith and life!
Family Enrichment Seminar Dr. Dan Darden has agreed to lead a Family Enrichment Seminar April 22-25.

Thankful to God for each of You, Andy
