Week ending October 15

this weeK…






Plans are in the works and updates will be coming soon.

Everything I Need to Know About Life, I learned From Noah’s Ark

One: Don’t miss the boat.

Two: Remember that we are all in the same boat.

Three: Plan ahead. It wasn’t raining when Noah built the Ark.

Four: Stay fit. When you’re 600 years old, someone may ask you to do something really big.

Five: Don’t listen to critics; just get on with the job that needs to be done.

Six: Build your future on high ground.

Seven: For safety’s sake, travel in pairs.

Eight: Speed isn’t always an advantage. The snails were on board with the cheetahs.

Nine: When you’re stressed, float a while.

Ten: Remember, the Ark was built by amateurs; the Titanic by professionals.

Eleven: No matter the storm, when you are with God, there’s always a rainbow waiting.


Samaritans’ Purse Operation Christmas Child (OCC) is officially begun so please pick up a box or two and have a joyful time picking out the contents!😇 Please pray as you shop and you will find guidance from above on what to select.


The plastic boxes with shipping label are $10.00 so shipping is prepaid. I have a limited number so try to pick them up this weekend after church on October 15.

Lots of cardboard boxes are left so please pick them up with a shipping label. Be sure to tape the shipping label on the box and secure with a rubber band which is also available at the table in the front hallway.

The packing party at Seagrove Baptist has been moved to Wednesday November 8 at 6pm.

All filled boxes need to be brought to Sunday November 12 at ASF Church service so we can pray over the boxes. Any questions call or text Nancy Gross 850-797-6926. Bless you for participating in this simple but powerful ministry.  Thanks!


bible study!

Simple Faith Church, Wednesdays 10:00-11:30 a.m.

Explorer’s Bible Study, incorporates a DVD lesson and workbook discussion questions. Cost of materials is $24.00

All are welcome!

Come join us as we study the 2 Books written by the only Gentile writer of the Bible.

Of all of Paul’s friends, there may have been no other more dearer than Luke.  Luke, a physician, was a man of culture, careful intelligence and of a very tender and sympathetic heart.  He loved Jesus and served Him with his whole heart.  The first 12 lessons will be in the Gospel of Luke.  In Acts, we will study of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit and grow more and more in the knowledge of Who the Holy Spirit is. This is not only a study of the History of the church forming but a study of how the Holy Spirit works through us as believers today.  A transforming and life changing study of God’s Word.

Any questions and to order a book:

second bible study

A study of the book of Revelation began Wednesday, September 6th at A Simple Faith. The class is led by Art Pierce, and meets each Wednesday at noon directly following the 10:00 bible class. All are welcome to attend. 

Although the class began in September, there is no cut off time to attending the class. There is so much to learn and absorb about this incredible book of the Bible and anyone interested should feel free to join us at any point at noon on Wednesdays at ASF.

“A group of us  had the wonderful experience of hearing Art Pierce teach a class on Revelation Wednesday. He presented foundational information on this amazing book and has us all eager to dig in further. The class is open to anyone interested and will be held at noon at A Simple Faith on Wednesdays. Don’t miss the opportunity to explore this most fascinating book of the Bible. Just bring a notebook and a bible, and lunch if you want.”
Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written in it; for the time is near. Rev. 1:3
Deb Riccitelli

The Revelation Bible study with Art is going to be so interesting. He’s a natural teacher. Illustrations and examples are wonderful, and we are thrilled to have this opportunity to study and be “spoon fed”.  Also, Rev. 1:3 says, “Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy and keep those things which are written in it, for the time is near.”  If you want to get blessed, come on down!

The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom

“Every experience God gives us . . . is the perfect preparation for the future only He can see.”–Corrie ten Boom

Corrie ten Boom was a Dutch watchmaker who became a heroine of the Resistance, a survivor of Hitler’s concentration camps, and one of the most remarkable evangelists of the twentieth century. In World War II she and her family risked their lives to help Jews and underground workers escape from the Nazis, and for their work they were tested in the infamous Nazi death camps. Only Corrie among her family survived to tell the story of how faith ultimately triumphs over evil.

Here is the riveting account of how Corrie and her family were able to save many of God’s chosen people. For 35 years millions have seen that there is no pit so deep that God’s love is not deeper still. Now The Hiding Place, repackaged for a new generation of readers, continues to declare that God’s love will overcome, heal, and restore.

“A groundbreaking book that shines a clear light on one of the darkest moments of history.”–Philip Yancey, author, The Jesus I Never Knew

“Ten Boom’s classic is even more relevant to the present hour than at the time of its writing. We . . . need to be inspired afresh by the courage manifested by her family.”–Jack W. Hayford, president, International Foursquare Church; chancellor, The King’s College and Seminary

“The Hiding Place is a classic that begs revisiting. Corrie ten Boom lived the deeper life with God. Her gripping story of love in action will challenge and inspire you!”–Joyce Meyer, best-selling author and Bible teacher.
