Church family,
 
There will be no Wednesday night activities next Wednesday night, the 22nd, due to the Thanksgiving Holiday. This includes worship practice.
 
I want to thank all the senior adults who came out and helped with the senior adult lunch this past week. It was a wonderful fellowship lunch! Again, thank you.
 
Our church is reaching our Jerusalem! Last Monday night, 23 individuals received clothing from our Clothing for Christ ministry here at Millbrook! This is an incredible praise! There were children lining a hallway of our church reading the free books we have for kids as their parents looked for clothing for them. It was a beautiful thing to see and a picture I will always have in my mind. I want to thank all of the individuals who came out last Monday to help further organize these rooms. Would you like to help on a Monday evening from 5-7pm? Please let me know! Also, our goal is to contact each person who visits our ministry to thank them for coming and letting us serve them. We need help with this so please let me know if you can help!
 
Exciting things are coming up and happening in our youth group. Lighthouse Student Ministries is going on a retreat this weekend. If you have not spoken to Pastor Leeana about your teen attending, please do so as soon as possible. Also, TNT has been scheduled for January 19-20th in Gardendale, Alabama. Parents of teens, mark your calendars for this date. This year, TNT will be combined with the Alabama North District. Also, church members are welcome to make the drive to watch and support our teens on Saturday the 20th if you would like to come!
 
Forgotten God is off to a great start! You are invited to attend this Wednesday night at 7pm at church as we study the Holy Spirit and the power He offers us. Don’t miss this study. If you have not bought a book, it is not too late! Come, connect, and grow.
 
We have been studying Small Books-Big Lessons so far in 1 John, Philemon, Haggai, Jude, and 3 John! The Lord had us pause our series yesterday to take a look at John Chapter 8:31-47 Take a look back at this passage. The sermon was called “The Tale of Two Masters” for a reason. Jesus wants us and the entire world to know the truth and be set free from the slavery of sin. Satan wants us and the entire world to be deceived by his lies. Jesus presents us with a beautiful, simple path to freedom in Verse 32. Learning His teachings and living His teachings results in us being transformed and set free in the truth. We can’t get to that incredible place in our faith if we aren’t spending time in God’s Word, learning what His teachings are! We cannot live out what we do not know. Let’s spend time learning His Word, putting it into practice, maturing, and seeing new freedom in Christ. Go Deeper in the following passages this week.
