SO MANY PEOPLE WERE BLESSED!

 

IMG_2287_FotorThis evening we concluded a 3-service revival with Evangelist Larry Martin.  Even though it was a school night, we had a great turn out on Monday night.  Many families brought their children and youth.

All the altar services were powerful. Everyone was blessed, and many were spiritually revived.

Here’s a picture of the altar service during the closing service of the revival.  People lingered.  It was beautiful.

THEY HAD TOO MUCH FUN!

 

IMG_2178-1This week, a group of our Primetimers (retirement age or better) attended the Annual Seniors Summit in Kerrville, Texas that was hosted by the South Texas District Assemblies of God.

Along with hundred of other attenders, our Primetimers had an absolutely wonderful time of fellowship!

They were ministered by former General Attorney General John Ashcroft who led exciting song services of classic hymns, along with inspiring stories.

We’re grateful for the ministry of our own Primetimers Pastor, Russell Joyce (far left in this picture). His wife is seated in front of him in the blue sweater.

After pastoring their last church in Connecticut for 30 years, The Joyce’s moved to Texas to retire and be close to family.  But God had different plans!

MORE IS CAUGHT THAN TAUGHT!

Children may not always remember specific sermons, but they will remember special moments lingering in the presence of God.

HE’S RETIRING!

 

IMG_1999_FotorAfter almost 13 years serving as our part time custodian, Joe Molander is retiring. His last day was today.

Of course, he and his wife Jesse are not leaving FLAG. But at 86 years old, “Brother Joe” is finally ready to slow down some.

This morning, the FLAG church family surprised and honored him with a special gift to use in his “retirement” years.  He was presented with a tiller to use on his garden (he grows delicious tomatoes every year).

“Render….honor to whom honor is due.” (Romans 13:7)

DESPITE THE COLD & WET WEATHER!

 

IMG_1919-1Two of our wonderful volunteers, Margie McKenney and Linda Whaley, drove in ugly weather today to deliver Christmas gifts to ALL the kids at Pleasant Hill Children’s Home, Fairfield, TX (halfway between Houston and Dallas).

These gifts were purchased by FLAG members during our annual “Merry Manger” project for the children’s Home.

They were indeed “angel couriers” for the Kingdom of God!

THEY CAME HUNGRY!

 

IMG_1787_FotorThis morning a large group of hungry men came to a special breakfast at the church. Our brand new stainless steel kitchen was put to good use, and the hallways smelled like Cracker Barrel.

A few of the men that came had not really met, until now. After eating and visiting together in an informal setting, new friendships were forged!

Later in the morning, guest speaker Paul Capehart (pastor of Harvest Family Church in Cypress, TX) brought a short but powerful message to the men on the subject of “spiritual fire” in the Chapel.  It resonated with everyone, as they closed with exuberant prayer.

SIGHT FOR SORE EYES!

FullSizeRender-1_FotorThere are two large storage containers at the back parking lot of the church. Perhaps you’ve seen them and were wondering why they were there.

These containers are filled with donated clothing given t0 Katy Christian Ministries (KCM) after the recent Hurricane Harvey that devastated many homes in the Houston area.

But since KCM was also displaced from their facilities due to extensive flooding, they had no place to store relief donations.

So that’s when FLAG came into the picture!  In response of KCM’s emergency need of storage space, our church rented these two containers just to be a blessing to KCM.

These containers were neither fancy or pretty.  But for the KCM leadership, they were a sight for sore eyes!

MESSY OR LOVELY?

 

21730795_10159338471155720_2764269659148318508_nAfter the recent citywide Hurricane Harvey flooding, Katy Christian Ministry (KCM) needed to vacate their entire office complex and resale store to allow for extensive renovations.

The primary relief agency in our community was itself homeless! That was the bad news.

Now the good news. When FLAG heard about this opportunity to be a blessing, we invited KCM to temporarily relocate their entire operation (administration offices, social services, crisis center, etc.) into our new church building while their facilities were being renovated. In addition, FLAG rented and brought to our campus two large storage units to store the countless bags of donated clothes given to KCM.

During the past couple of weeks, FLAG volunteers have come every day to sort and organize these clothes donations, as well as assist with distribution to needy families.

Piles of clothes on lines tables now fill our church hallways. To some people this may look a bit messy and perhaps inappropriate for such a pretty new building.  But to God, FLAG has never looked more lovely!

IT WAS A POWERFUL SUMMER NIGHT!

 

FullSizeRender-1In the middle of a hot Texas summer, a revival with Evangelist Larry Martin was scheduled for a Sunday morning and evening service.

Even though FLAG does not have Sunday night services, the turnout to this evening revival gathering was tremendous! It was special to see a number of families bring their kids (who are usually in Children’s church on Sunday mornings).

Heaven came down and glory filled out souls!

A spirit of exuberant worship swept the sanctuary after the powerful message from our evangelist, while many repented and were baptized in the Holy Spirit at the altars.  Even an impromptu “Jericho March” took place!

We’re already looking forward to our next revival services!

THE BEST ONE EVER!

 

passport-to-peru-vbs-2017-minLast week, we hosted our very first VBS in our brand new building — and it was a tremendous success!

According to our children’s pastor, Debbie Kammerlohr, we has a record-breaking 225 children registered at VBS, and 115 workers!

And here’s the best part…..60 children made a first time decision to serve the Lord during a very special altar service. Furthermore, another 51 children re-dedicated their lives to Jesus Christ.

To God be the glory!
