A Dictator's Ego

When Adolph Hitler was looking for a chauffeur, he interviewed 30 different men. The one he finally hired had one key characteristic - he was the shortest. Though the man had to have special blocks put under his seat so he could see over the steering wheel, he was Hitler's chauffeur for the rest of his life.

Some people use others to make themselves feel bigger. Jesus did just the opposite; He took on the role of a servant. He made himself smaller so that we might know God's love.

Mark 10:45

For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.

I love you all,




**  Our mission contribution is today. The money contributed will go toward our supported missions. Pledge sheets are available at the back of the auditorium.

** Our Thanksgiving Ham Giveaway is also today. We are giving a bag with ham and additional items to the addresses or people we have helped in the past year. A letter has been sent to each address, so someone should be expecting you between 11:30 and 2:30. Bags are ready for pick up in the fellowship hall.

** You are invited to a bridal shower for Macey Thurman, bride elect of Justin Brown, on Saturday, December 5th, from 2-4, in the home of Gaye Young, 216 Comanche Trail. Gift selections are at Byrdís Nest, Thompsonís in Canyon, Milk House Market in Friona and Bed, Bath & Beyond. We are asking everyone to also bring a Christmas ornament that you have signed on the back.

** The Omicron Study Club is sponsoring Christmas angels this year. We have volunteered to take care of 20 angels. The angel descriptions are on the bulletin board across from the office. We are asked to purchase a jacket, shirt, underwear and toy for each child. Please pick up an angel and be sure to add your name to the sign-up sheet. You are welcome to pick up more than one angel. Please return the unwrapped gifts to the office by December 6th, in a bag with the angel description attached. You may also participate by sending a contribution to the office, Box 357.




If you are visiting us today, we are honored you chose us. We hope that todayís time together will help deepen your relationship with God and widen your circle of friends.

We are a church family who seeks to follow Jesus and be true to the Bible.

Please stay around after our assembly so that we might get to know you better. 

Thank you again for worshipping with us today.
