Please keep the family  of Coy Campbell in prayer– Bro. Coy passed away on Nov 27, 2019 at age 91

2019 Thanksgiving Service:  The annual Church of Christ Thanksgiving Service was held in the auditorium of Portland Christian School on Sunday evening, November 24th.   A good crowd was in attendance.  The main speaker was Tim Morrow, who had an interesting message about Job and the trials he endured when God allowed him to be assailed by Satan.  

Ron Flora did a good job of leading singing.  The Chorus, comprised of alumni of PCHS had practiced twice. As you sat and listened that was hard to believe.  This group, under the direction of Phyllis Mullins and Kellie Pledger, produced a number of songs, that had you not known, you would think they sang together all the time.  There were alumni represented from the 1950s through the 2020 graduating class.   We hope to hear them again at next year’s Thanksgiving Service.

AS ANOTHER YEAR is winding down we continue to “LOOK FOR THE BLESSED HOPE AND GLORIOUS APPEARING OF OUR GREAT GOD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST.”  (Titus 2:13)  What a wonderful time to be a part of the family of God and serving together with others of “LIKE PRECIOUS FAITH.”    Our main purpose through the News & Notes each month is to report various happenings going on within the BODY OF CHRIST, HIS CHURCH.   This is for encouragement to PRAY FOR ONE ANOTHER!  Please pray for the Lord’s church and remember Ephesians 4:11,12 “He gave some to be apostles, prophets, pastors and teachers, FOR THE EQUIPPING OF THE SAINTS – FOR (the saints) WORKS OF MINISTRY, for the edifying of the body of Christ.”  What are YOU doing to EDIFY the body?  Satan continues to work overtime because he knows “HIS TIME IS SHORT.” (Revelation 12:12)   (Bennie Hill)
