The book of Acts details the story of the growth of the church. It follows personalities like Peter, Paul, and Barnabas, as they go about expanding God’s kingdom. There’s something interesting about Barnabas I’d like to share with you today. Did you know that Barnabas wasn’t even his real name? His real name was Joseph. He’s called Barnabas in scripture because that was his nickname. Barnabas means son of encouragement. He got that nickname by being someone who was always willing to encourage, help, strengthen, and support other people. What a powerful testimony! Who in your life has been a Barnabas to you? Who in your life are you being Barnabas to? Let’s commit to encourage one another in the Lord.
One way to encourage, help, strengthen, and support others is through our coat drive. Our Education Ministry is sponsoring a coat drive for our adopted school East Garner Elementary School. Please donate new winter coats with tags in sizes 6 to 12. The coat drive ends on Saturday, October 2nd. If you plan to donate a coat on Saturday, please bring it to the Fellowship Hall before noon. Let’s be a blessing to those in need.
