A message from Brother Jaimie Alexander

Dear FUMCBV Family,
A Witness: “God is Good all the Time”!
This morning, I had an opportunity to meet someone that has been a guest in one of the worship services for a couple of weeks. This person is a server at an area restaurant. I recognized her from a distance, but asked another server if she was who I thought she was just to make sure. She came to my table, we introduced ourselves to each other, and began our visit. She shared with me that she actually attends a large NWA church, but is wanting to discover a new church home. She has several churches on her list to visit, but started with FUMCBV. She complimented many aspects of the worship service and the friendliness of the congregation. Then she said, I like the saying “God is good all the time and all the time God is good! She witnessed and explained to me in beautiful theological terms what that means to her. She shared how she knows God is good even when things are bad and how daily she walks around the restaurant whispering the saying to herself as she waits on customers. When our visit ended, she hurried away to wait on other tables, and I simply said “thank you, Lord for a great visit!”.
Thank you for all the ways “YOU” witness about the love of Jesus Christ! I encourage you to continue to share your witness of God’s presence, to read God’s word, spend time in prayer, and meet people where they are on their faith journey like Jesus did. Each of us has the opportunity to be a Christian witness of hope or a stumbling block of frustration to others. Remember to BE the CHURCH…Love, Learn, Lead! Be a Witness!
In Memory:
This week, we remember and celebrate the lives of two of our longtime members who have join the triumphant church. Mrs. Emma Rose Jennings passed away on Saturday, August 29. There will be a graveside service in Wichita, Kansas at a later date in her memory.
Mrs. Sybil Martin passed away on Wednesday, Sept. 2. Her Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, September 5 at 10 a.m. in the Sanctuary with a time of visitation with the family to follow in the Chapel.
Each of these ladies had daughters but no sons. Please be in prayer for their daughters and families.
Sager Brown Mission Team:
The FUMCBV Sager Brown Mission Team has been sharing great reports of their ministry in Baldwin, La. Please continue to be in prayer for them and for their return trip on Saturday. Below is the team photographed at Williams Memorial UMC on Sunday with my 96 year old Aunt Dot Dillard of Texarkana, Texas. The team worshipped there on Sunday. You can see more photos on the church’s FaceBook page.
God is Faithful!
Bro. Jaimie
