It’s February 2023; hard to believe that January is gone. In fact, February is almost halfway done. Next week is Valentine’s Day! Happy birthday to all those celebrating this month.
Happy Valentine’s Day to all! It is also called the Feast of Saint Valentine. It began as a Christian feast to honor Saint Valentine, a 3rd century Roman saint. He was either a priest or bishop who ministered to persecuted Christians.
He was martyred and buried on February 14. It is said that the last note he wrote that he signed it “from your Valentine,” and it has evolved today into a time of cultural and commercial celebration of romance and love.
Bro. Steve Dyess brought the message at Providence Baptist this past Sunday, as we continue to seek a pastor. Anyone interested or knows someone, contact a member of our church. We are looking for a bi-vocational pastor, so continue to be in prayer for our church as we search for an interim pastor, as well as a new pastor.
There has been a change of location for the preparation of taxes. It will be at the Rockford Methodist Church located at 9922 U.S. Highway 231 which is north of the four-way stop. We will be there each Wednesday from 9–2 through April 5. Walk-ins are welcome.
The Richville Volunteer Fire Department will host Bingo on Saturday, February 25, at 6:30. Come out for fellowship and fun, as well as to support the fire department. Concessions are sold during intermissions.
The scripture reading I’m sharing this week is Psalm 91:9-11 which reads, “Because you have made the LORD – my refuge, the Most High – your dwelling place, no harm will come to you; no plague will come near your tent. For He will give His angels orders concerning you, to protect you in all your ways.”
This Psalm is considered a Psalm of Protection. However, it is not promising you freedom from earthly trials and/or death, but instead it is saying that once you give your heart to Jesus your soul is protected.
We will face evil and troubles here on earth, but at the resurrection, God will prove the truth of this promise. This Psalm is a reminder of our salvation. Our eternal hope of heaven will far outweigh the troubles we have here on earth.
Continue to be in prayer for those that lost their homes in the storm and others that have recently lost their loved ones. There are several in our community that are not feeling well, so please pray for their healing in God’s will, as well. God knows their names and needs. Until next week, take care and be joyful!
