Malachi Russell got his first name from the prophet.  It means “My Messenger.”  His parents wanted him to be God’s messenger.  When he was a boy he was in the backseat of the car and said, “I’m ready to die.  I’m ready to see Jesus.”  He kept telling his parents he wanted to be saved and baptized but they kept putting him off.  He finally said, “Why don’t you let me get saved?”  So, they let him make a public decision and get baptized.

He loved playing football, baseball and soccer.  He never met a stranger.  Then one day he had a pain in his leg.  It was discovered that he had a rare cancer.  There were only 80 recorded instances of it.  The average live-span after diagnoses was 17 months.

He was taken by ambulance to his radiation treatments.  On the way he would ask the personnel, “Where are you from?  What do you do?  If you were to die tonight would you go to heaven or hell?”  Then he would tell them how to get to heaven.  He figured, “I’m dying of cancer, what have I got to lose?”

He became bloated, he lost his hair, but he never lost his joy.  He targeted 17 people whom he wanted to see come to Christ in the 17 months he had remaining.  He went to heaven at the age of 12.  He loved Jesus till his last breath.  He still loves Jesus.

Sunday I’m preaching on “Love God” from Psalm 18:1-19.  David will sing about 1) “Love the Lord because He Protects You” (verses 1-6), 2) “Love the Lord because He’s Powerful” (verses 7-15) and 3) “Love the Lord because He Saved You” (verses 16-19).  Come help us celebrate with David and our precious church the wonderful love of Jesus.

I really appreciate all the people who helped us with our worship on Sunday.  Let’s continue to pray for Sallyann that God would bring her great healing.  See what God leads you to do to minister to her and her family during these challenging days.

Don’t forget our class Saturday on “Share the Good News” from 10:00 till 11:00 in the Fellowship Hall.  Let’s learn how to be God’s messengers along with Malachi Russell!

Remember, everything is livestreamed on Facebook for those who can’t come.

God's Little Creatures-Nursery Care


Hello Dear Church Family,

I hope you all find yourselves well. I am writing to provide an update on our nursery and preschool. In light of COVID last year, the nursery closed in March along with the rest of the church, but the nursery took a little longer to reopen. It finally opened in October, to only close again 6 weeks later when county regulations changed.

It's a new year, though, and thank God we are seeing improvements. Therefore, I would like to work towards reopening the nursery & preschool department on Sundays (planned re-opening, March 7th). In order to accomplish this, we are in need of additional workers to join our team! At the moment, we simply do not have the minimum required volunteers to watch over the children. If you have a heart for working with children (ages 0-5), then I ask that you would prayerfully consider joining our team. I would love to speak with you to provide additional information and answer any questions you may have.

Thank you.
