P raises to our Lord and savior Jesus Christ! We are in the hot month of August and the kids are back to school once again. Last month we gave out our McKinnon Fund Scholarship to Deja Blackwood. We congratulate her on her desires to pursue higher education. Education is key and we want to encourage everyone if you have the opportunity to do it, then by all means do it! Education is the means and access to open doors in your life and the combination of education with a firm foundation in God and his word is the key to success and prosperity in your life.
The word of God says:
“Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore, get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding. Exalt her, and she shall promote thee: she shall bring thee to honor, when thou dost embrace her.” Proverbs 4:7-8
There are so many people that have head knowledge but their hearts lack maturity. The decisions that they make in life do not bring fulfilment or fruitfulness. However, a person whose steps are ordered by the Lord is not only fruitful to them but it effects others in a positive light as well. My prayer that whatever you do in life put God first in it and you will be successful and blessed.
God Bless and keep you is my prayer!
Rev. Charles E. Graham
We are pleased that through the efforts of the Metro Federation churches that we were able to raise $885.00. All calendars were sold and there were some additional donations given just by those who wanted to give for a worthy cause, along with add sales. We stated earlier that the church that sold the most calendars would receive a gift card for two for the Pastor and another too Red Lobster. Our winner for most calendars sold: "Spirit of Life." Thanks once again for all those who participate and remember the proceeds all go to the Metro Federation.
Making a difference in the Inner City and the World!
