     Friends, Flannel, & Flapjacks is upon us! We are excited for this opportunity to invite our friends to worship with us who may not be plugged into a community of believers.  The problem with an appliance being unplugged is the lack of access to power to help it accomplish the task for which that machine was created to complete. As Christians, we have two sources to be plugged into to help us accomplish our purpose in life and these are set up by God: 

  1. To be connected with God by a relationship with Him 

Revelation 3:20 “Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me.” The Lord desires to be with us so much that He came to us WHILE WE WERE YET SINNERS. That’s what the Apostle Paul reminds us in Romans 5:8. We were made to worship God. That’s what we all desire and crave and will not be satisfied until we worship Him and Him alone. People direct their worship toward other things, people, even themselves and we see the ruin and depression all around from their/our misguided devotions. 

  1. To be connected with other believers by a relationship with them. 
           The Apostle Paul also teaches in Romans 12:4-6a “For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function, 5 so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another. 6 Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them…”
           We all have a function as believers and should not be separated from the body. And we need and depend on one another to accomplish the work of God in this world. When one part is missing, we notice it and miss it just like we would with our physical arm or leg. 
       The problem is that some people are searching for something to fulfill them and don’t know what that is. That’s where Jesus tells us, as He told His disciples: Go and teach all that I have commanded you and make disciples. He tells us that they NEED to know the truth of salvation and forgiveness that’s found only in Jesus Christ! 
     That’s the heart around this event: Friends, Flannel, and Flapjacks. It’s more than just pancake mix and syrup. It’s more than some water filtered through ground coffee beans. It’s more than the warm feel of flannel on a cold day. It’s about souls that need to hear the Good News! It’s about individuals who need community! It’s about the created needing restored to their Creator! 
         Who are you bringing?   Who are you praying for? 
Along with Friends, Flannel and Flapjacks on November 3rd, we also will have: International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church, another baptism November 10th, and the community Thanksgiving service at Ava Assembly of God church on November 24th!
We have a lot to be thankful for and there’s a need for us to remember that and live everyday thankful to the One who offers us eternal life with Him!   Love Him and others this month and look to Encourage each other, Equip yourself with the Word of God for the work of God, and Encounter those far from God with the Hope that only Jesus brings!   May God bless and lead you this month,

Pumpkin Bundt Cake

(From The Kitchen Of Lula Mae Denny)


1 package (18-1/4 ounces) yellow cake mix

1 package (3.4 ounces) instant  butterscotch pudding mix

4 eggs

1/4 cup vegetable oil

1 cup canned pumpkin

2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice

(Whipped cream, optional )


In a large mixing bowl, combine first seven ingredients. Beat on low speed for 30 seconds; beat on medium for 4 minutes. Pour into a greased and floured 10 in fluted tube pan.

A Sinner’s Prayer


Can I go back to Bethel?

I’ve been there oft’ before.

Can I find you, oh Lord of grace?

Will you my faith restore?


I shall go back to Bethel!

Just take my faltering hand

And grant Thy love


To this, ‘Jacobean’ man.


I’ll struggle with the Spirit

Your blessing to receive.

But please, just stay beside me—

I’m but a child in need.


I know in time of trouble,

When things looked dark as night,

You’ve guided, loved and guarded;

And kept me in the right.


So, stay here beside me,


This time I’ve none but Thee.

Crowd out all ill


And hear this sinner’s plea.


Genesis 35:1-5


—— Faye Case




Honor to the soldier and sailor everywhere, who bravely bears his country’s cause. Honor, also, to the citizen who cares for his brother in the field and serves, as he best can, the same cause.


 —-Abraham Lincoln
