As we close the month of July and look toward August, don’t forget to thank the Lord for all of his blessings on us! You can see blessings all around you if you just look. I woke up this morning – that’s a blessing! Even when you have lost someone special to you and feel lost – the Lord is there to help you if you just ask. No, He won’t always give us what we want but He will give us what we need to get through any trials if we just ask. Thank you, Lori Radolinski, for speaking this morning in Pastor Barbara’s absence. And to John Radolinski for helping Lori. Here is the link to Lori’s message:
Please remember Pastor Barbara and her family in your prayers. Her mother, Mrs. Lieu Lewis, passed away last Tuesday, July 26th. Her obituary can be found at: https://www.blileys.com/obituaries/obituary-listings?obId=25475522 . Thank you for your prayers and concern.
Well, it is definitely a scorcher here in Passapatanzy! A good portion of that is because it is not only hot but hot with humidity thrown in the mix! Please remember to keep your pets inside – remember they are God’s creatures as well! And check on those you know who may be elderly or without air conditioning. Please take care of others as you would want them to do for you and/or your family! We had a substitute speaker yesterday morning due to a family emergency for Pastor Barbara. Thanks goes to Lori Radolinski (delivered the sermon) and John Radolinski (helped with the rest of the service)! And with that note – here is the sermon. Enjoy!
Here is the link to this week’s sermon! Again, I hope you enjoy this beautiful day as you take time to refocus and let your body relax and get ready for another week. Have a blessed and safe today and week!
Good afternoon, everyone! Hopefully you are enjoying a wonderful day! Here is last week’s sermon. So sorry for it being posted a week late, but with summer you tend to have people on vacations. Enjoy the sermon!

Hello everyone! Please join me in greeting our new Pastor to Fletcher’s Chapel! Pastor Barbara Lewis has joined our Church with her first sermon being today. Please forgive the minor hiccups with the “AN ORDER FOR THE CELEBRATION OF AN APPOINTMENT” due to parts of it not getting copied in the bulletin correctly (I haven’t figured out how that happened yet). I apologize to both Pastor Barbara and John Radolinski for any problems created for them. However, with the exception of that, I believe you find a very good service this morning with an interesting sermon from Pastor Barbara. So, let’s get to it! Enjoy!
