 Greetings loved ones,
         Last Sunday was a blessed day at Deerfoot Baptist Church. Many of you commented to me on the
 felt presence of the Lord. I agree, it was one of those Sundays that we all entered into a time of special
 blessing. Several guests stopped by to speak to me following the service. Their comments were very en-
 couraging. Each of them indicated that they had been greatly blessed by the worship experience. I give God
 thanks for His blessings upon us.
          I am grateful to Deacon Chariman, David Deerman's, kind remarks to you, and to Sandra and me, re-
 garding our sixth anniversary together. I am very sincere when I tell you that it is an honor to serve the Lord
 with you. My love for you deepens daily. I feel that our relationship is strong and healthy. I feel good about
 the spiritual health of our church. I feel fortunate to have such a wonderful group of people to serve along
 side at this stage in my life and ministry.
         Let us continue to walk faithfully with the Lord and be obedient to His word. He has much more in
 store for Deerfoot Baptist Church. Those of us who are older are investing in a church for the future genera-
 tions. We are striving to build a congregation of people who have high regard for the Bible, for the Lord and
 His Church. We are seeking to be godly, global Christians.
         FEBRUARY IS "I LOVE MY CHURCH BECAUSE....." MONTH. Have you submitted your two or three
 sentence statement to Paula at Please let us hear from you. Already a number of
 you have given us your statement of why you love your church. These little testimonials are a blessing to
 me...and to all who read them. We have a special bulletin board on which your statements are dis-
 played...and they will also be posted on a page on our website. Let us hear from you today.
 WORSHIP STARTS AT 10:30 A.M. Our attention to these matters is a reflection of our spiritual disci-
          MAY WE WORK ON THE DISCIPLINE OF entering the sanctuary and, after a brief and quiet greeting
 to those seated around you, enter into a time of quiet, reverent, prayerful preparation fot what is about to
 happen....THE WORSHIP OF HOLY GOD! Take time to prepare your hearts to enter into His presence.
          I am entering year number seven with the joy of the Lord in my heart...and a heart full of love for

 Your Pastor

          I know that you enjoyed the Handbell Choir last Sunday as much as I did. I appreciate their faithfulness to rehearsal and
their commitment to each time they perform. I don’t know if you realize it, but this is one group that cannot have a successful
rehearsal or performance, if there is anyone missing. A special thanks to Jo Self for her leadership in this very important part of
the ministry of music at Deerfoot.
          What about the Youth Choir! Were they not a blessing last Sunday night. It was so good to hear them as they did their
part to lead us in worship. Thanks guys and gals, great job! Ashley is doing a great work with this choir, and they are so
responsive to her.
          I am so thankful to Jo and Ashley because they give so much of their time to these two ministries over and above their
tasks of accompanists for our adult choir and the worship ministry on Sunday morning and evening. I pray our Father’s blessings
on them as they serve Him.
C.U.N. Worship,
Tommy E. Cole,
Minister of Music
