Liberty Baptist Church will have Sunday school in the fellowship hall at 10 a.m. with the lesson, “Jesus’ Teaching On The Law,” taken from Matthew 15:1-11, 15-20; Devotional Reading: Matthew 5:14-20, and Background Scripture: Matthew 5: 17-48, 15:1-20, and Romans 3: 31.

Church Service will be at 11 a.m. in the sanctuary with Pastor, Robert (Bob) Leitgabel giving the sermon. This week’s message will continue the series on the Disciplines of being a Disciple of Jesus.

This week we will be exploring “Prayer” from Ephesians 6:18-20. Next week we will be discussing “Fasting” as part of the disciplines of being a Disciple of Jesus. We welcome all to come and join us for a time of praise, worship and fellowship. May God bless all.

Sunday evening, May 18

Bible Study on I and II Samuel will be at 6 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall. This will be the last Bible Study for the summer, so that members can spend time with their families while they are off on vacation from school, etc. Bible Study will resume again in September, at a time to be announced later.

Monday, May 19

Deacon’s Meeting at 7p.m.

Reminder: The churches of our area are asked to help supply the Southeastern Baptist Youth Camp with the items needed for the 2014 camping season. Please refer to the list that was included in the church bulletin last week for items needed. Donations may be left on the pew in the foyer to be taken to the camp. Also, the camp is asking for cash donations to help buy animal-proof trash cans for the camp.
