Pastor Stanley M. Jacobs, Sr.

Proverbs 16:9 (NLT)

We can make our plans, but the LORD determines our steps.”


Watching the evening news can be depressing but we know who oversees everything.  People are making plans every day and going about life as though they are in complete control of their lives.  King Solomon advises us to make plans but know that the Lord is the one who determines the outcome.  Please continue to be guilty of praying for one another and checking on one another.

Pastor Charlie tells me that things continue to be chaotic in Haiti.  He stated that there are no words to describe the situation in his nation.  It is interesting that we hear little about it in the news.  Our congregation continues to send funds every month and the Pastor wants you to know that they are very appreciative and thankful for your assistance.

The Brotherhood Ministry will start meeting again in June.  Please listen for more information as we are moving closer to that date.  Dea. Charles Banks will be teaching from Dr. Tony Evans’ book entitled, “The Battle is the Lord’s.”  The meetings will be held once a month on a Sunday morning with a light breakfast included.  All our men and young men are encouraged to attend.

Blessings and Be Safe,

                Pastor Stanley M. Jacobs, Sr.
