Dear Friends,

prodigal son

“Acknowledge that the Lord is God! He made us, and we are his. We are his people, the sheep of his pasture.” (Psalm 100:3) This verse speaks volumes to us. When we acknowledge the truth that the Lord is our God, our Creator, our Shepherd then the things we face everyday are put in proper perspective. Our Heavenly Father made us and we belong to him. Yet so many people reject (rebel against) the idea of belonging to God. He will provide and guide and walk with us throughout our day if we acknowledge His grace, presence and ownership! Let's acknowledge the Lord as the one who answers prayer and is able to supply strength for today!

On Tuesday nights we meet first to pray and then to study the Bible together. All are welcome to join us as we seek to know and do the Word and Will of God. The men are studying the Book of Acts and the women are studying the book of Nehemiah.

Ladies you are welcome at the Wednesday Morning Bible Study starting at 10:00 A.M. at the church. They will be studying a book on discipleship.

Sunday's Message -- Pastor Ed de la Cour

Movies, TV shows, and celebrities celebrate the idea of being a rebel. We see from Jesus' parable of the prodigal son in Luke 15 that rebellion is fun only as long as the money lasts. Have you every run away from home? From your responsibilities? Have you run from God? It is probably true that we have all run away at one time or another. After all, we're all rebels at heart. The question is, do we ever come to our senses? This Sunday, pastor Ed will share a message entitled, "Rebel, Run." The preaching text is Luke 15: 11 - 32.


This week we will focus our prayer for the village of Cataumet. We have already seen some results of our pray for other villages in Bourne. Let's believe Him for a move of the Holy Spirit!

Pastor Glenn and Carol are away in North Carolina until August 21st. Carol and Jared's recovery from the kidney transplant continues to go very well. Thank you for your prayers. Please pray for their complete recovery.

We still have openings Thursday evenings, August 24, and 31 from 8-9 pm for anyone who wants to be blessed and help in staffing our Kid Kare ministry to the Primary Purpose AA group. Are you able and willing to invest an hour in a week to love children for the sake of God's Kingdom? This ministry of service is opening doors for the gospel.

Our church picnic with the AA community will be on Thursday evening, August 31st. Please mark that on your calendars. We will need everyone's help to make this years picnic a blessing. Let Amy Leech, this year's coordinator, know what you can do to help. Thanks in advance for your help and generosity.

Pray for One: Ask God to give you one person to pray for that they may come to faith in Jesus. Pray that God gives you an opportunity to share Jesus story with them.

Thank you for your faithfulness in bringing bread each Sunday for the Bourne Friends Food Pantry!

If you have announcements for the newsletter or the bulletin, please contact Glenn at You may also text message or call him at 774-368-0980.
