From the Heart of Justice Greetings Simpson Church Family, We are excited about the what God is doing here at Simpson. We've already begun to launch our S.E.A. Ministry Crusade which will continue through August 31".

Rev Lester N Justice

That's right!! ... It's S.E.A. time!! What does S.E.A. stand for?

Contributors Travis L Smith Sr Natasha Reason Nike Marshall Francine Motley Barrington Gidney Danita Moore Rev. Corteze Rawley Brandy Bey Theodore Jones Jr Doriel Moreman Stella Ponzo If you content to be added to a Simpson Communication, Publication, Website, Mail, etc. Please contact your Simpson Content Minister Nurturing - Adonna Manlove/Danita Moore Outreach - Doriel Morman Witness - Rev. Corteze Rawley Content Deadline is the September 15th day of the month Simpson News: sumcnews@simpsonde.org

We all are being challenged to spread the Good News and invite all who do not know Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior to fellowship with us at any of our Worship Experiences and gatherings that are being held during the next two months here at Simpson. One may ask... Why are we doing this? The answer: If ever there is a time to witness about the goodness of God, that time is now. We must become even more intentional in our efforts about encouraging people to be born into the Body of Christ. We've been commissioned by Jesus according to the Word of God which states: "Go out and train everyone you meet, far and near, in this way of life, marking them by baptism in the threefold name: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Then instruct them in the practice of all I have commanded you. I'll be with you as you do this, day after day after day, right up to the end of the age." The Message Bible; Matthew 28:19-20 Simpson Church Family let's intentionally be a witness and reach out to everybody and just spread the Good News because "It's S.E.A. time!!!" Peace and Blessings,

Rev. Lester N. Justice, Pastor

All singers should remember that our voices and vocal chords need rest just like our bodies. Singers should avoid excessive talking and laughing before a performance or ministry. If you have to speak use tones and pitches that are low and comfortable.

When traveling, make sure that you keep your neck covered and get plenty of rest. Have you ever been awake all night and noticed that your voice sounds and feels different that next day? Being awake all or most of the night, especially talking or laughing will have a negative impact on the quality of your singing voice and often leads to hoarseness. It is important to remember that the time we spend sleeping or resting without the movement of our vocal chords allow for rejuvenation and repair. So remember: “a well rested voice is a well sounding voice.” Rob Jones—Director

August Devotional

In this dispensation of time we’ve seen a movement caused by debt rising to what was called a debt gridlock to a done deal that almost cost Government to go into default. What looked like a tidal wave wash out. Though it may be the spirit of discouragement which has had an impact on our Children’s Education, the Automotive and Housing Industry, Loss of Jobs, Financial up evil (Wall Street), Destruction on 911, Politics (Democrats vs. Republicans, new age Tea Party), Philosophy and Religion. We see influence TV Prgrams, News Papers, Computers and Big Business have had on our everyday behavior, decisions and livelihood. All around us, we see people who reject and ignore Biblical Principles. They’ve done and are doing whatever they want, as long as it gives momentary pleasure of feel good and power. Brothers and Sisters don’t fear, for fear is nothing more than (f-alse; e-vidence; a-ppearing; r-eal). Be not dismayed, God is not mocked. For the logos written lets us know, God hasn’t given us the Spirit of fear, but power, love and a sound mind. Stand strong resolve to base your life in the Bible (B -asic; I-nstruction; B-efore; L-eaving; E-arth). Which speaks to us about “The Rock! His work is perfect, for all His ways are just; a God of faithfulness and without injustice, righteous and upright is He.” For there is only one true God. In Deut. Moses said He is “the Rock”, and I hear Peter saying, “Unto this Rock, I’ll build my Church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. “ We must stand on His promise for His word does not

14

Hold on my Brothers and Sister to His unchanging hand and the King of Glory shall rescue. He always plans a way of escape, and lean not to our own understanding, but acknowledge Him and He shall strengthen your heart. Trust in the Lord with all of your heart and HE WILL direct our path. Don’t give into relativism that is sweeping throughout the world, for though you are in the world remember , you are not of this world. Depend on His word and hold to it, the one who is the author and finisher of our faith. (F-ather; A-rt; I-n; T-he; H-eaven). Just know that if the Rock said we were blessed – we’re blessed! If the Rock said we’re healed – you’re healed! If the Rock said He will supply all our needs according to His riches in Christ Jesus – He will! If the Rock said He came to give us life and give it more abundantly – He shall! And if He said He would never leave us nor forsake us – He won’t! Remember HE is the WAY, the TRUTH and the LIGHT. Prayer: Father God, thank you for being our Rock. Help us to yield our hearts and spirits to you, and fill us with your biblical principals in word, thought and deed. Father you said the effectual fervent prayers of the righteous availeth much, so we humbly ask you to rise and shine and let your glory and mercy rest upon us. Keep us with your keeping power. Remove discouragement and doubt. Replace with a new boost of vitamins (BCC) boldness, confidence and courage in this season. Father we ask that you render unto us resources we know not of. In the precious name of Jesus. So Be It! Evangelism Team: Rev. Dr. Corteze B. Rawley,Chair, Nola Baker, Sylvia Cain, Sandy Clark, Adonna Green, Robert Green, Liz Francis, Eloise Summer
