Prayer and Scripture Focus:
To Walk in the Spirit
Romans 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
Ephesians 5:9 (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)
Galatians 5: 12-25 For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another. For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another. This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.
For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law. Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

Saturday, October 13---Crabbing and Crab Boil!
Meet at the church at 6:30 a.m. to go crabbing. Fishing licenses are required.
Feel free to bring fishing poles, mosquito spray, sun screen, folding chairs...
Those NOT crabbing are invited to join the fishermen at the PSC at 3p.m. for the crab boil, tons of fun, and a Trunk o' Junk exchange.
Contact Chuck Huddleston for more details on the crabbing adventure and to confirm if you will be eating that day. (337) 532-2503.
Trunk o' Junk is an opportunity to bring anything you want to discard and give away... Think of it as a garage sale in which you GIVE AWAY the stuff you no longer want. It's a good motivation to clean out your closet...your house...and attic...and shed... (Anything no one wants is already loaded into your vehicle to haul to Goodwill or the trash dumpster!)
