How to Spread Gossip

Kent Crockett shares the following story about the ease of the spread of gossip:

A woman in a certain village spread a slanderous story about her boss.

Later she regretted it and asked his forgiveness. He said, “I forgive you but I want you to do something. I have a large bag of feathers that I want you to take to the town tower. Go to the top and scatter the feathers to the wind.” She did as he requested and returned.

He said, “Now go gather the feathers and bring them back to me.” She said, “But that’s impossible. They are scattered everywhere.” “That’s right,” he replied. “I forgive you. But remember that the false information you spread about me is scattered everywhere and it cannot be recalled.”

Proverbs 20:19

A gossip betrays a confidence; so avoid anyone who talks too much.

Remember that whoever gossips to you will also gossip about you.

I love you all,




**  We will finish making corrections and completing the church directory near the end of September.

** The church nursery is in need of updated items to be used for teaching our babies and toddlers. Please pick up a list of the needed items on the activity table. We are hoping to keep costs down by asking for any “gently” used items on the list. Please call or bring those items by the office. Thank you for your help!

** All newcomers are invited to a Bible class every Sunday morning at 9:30 in the church library.

** We are planning a Trunk or Treat event, weather permitting, at Connor Park on Broadway Sunday evening, October 28th, from 5:00-6:30. We will have a devotional followed by hot dogs and our annual Trunk or Treat. The community will be invited, so we need everyone to bring treats to pass out from the pavilion or your trunk. Please bring your lawn chairs.




If you are visiting us today, we are honored you chose us. We hope that today’s 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.
