Week ending November 19

this weeK…

safe trip to our travelers to the holy land!


NOTICE: The 30A road closure (from Grayton Beach to Blue Mountain) will be in effect from October 23 through January 31.


The long-term plan for hurricane relief has shifted to Puerto Rico, which will take years to recover. Getting people, even supplies there, is nearly impossible right now. However, we have multiple contacts on the island and are staying connected. The Puerto Rico trip has been pushed back until the first of the year because the area we were going to has been quarantined because of water contamination.

In the short term, we will be assisting the Immokalee Community in Collier County, Florida. This is an agricultural community that suffered a good deal of hurricane damage. Mostly tenants and renters, their housing is going to be taken care of, but the Guadalupe Social Services program is in need of supplies. We will provide further information in the days ahead, and deliver a load of supplies to them.



Anyone who has shoeboxes needs to leave them under the table at the church and I will be taking them to Atlanta December 15 & 16th. There are still boxes to be packed if someone wishes to participate. Many thanks to everyone who packed a shoebox! Nancy Gross 850-797-6926.

  HELP WANTED:  I need a retired, semi-retired, or bored person…male or female…who knows a little about food to work at Baytowne Provisions in the general store… they will be trained to explain some of the specialty foods we have to offer and assist in store functions… they need to have a good personality and the gift of gab…we got anybody like that? For info contact Bill McConnell at 850-685-2088 or billy7071@gmail.

second bible study

NOTE: Art Pierce’s Revelation Bible study will NOT meet the last 2 Wednesdays of November. 

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.




Can we talk???

If you would like to have a Chat With Cyndi Talty call 850-585-0370 and plan to meet with her.


I am volunteering with a program for those who have lost loved ones.  It’s called Learning Through Loss and sponsored by SRB Community Church (we are currently in our third series this year having upwards of 25 attendees).

This time of year is very difficult for many who have suffered loss of a loved one or even divorce.  The program is facilitated by CC Veasey Whittinghill, D. DIV, and myself.

Here are the particulars:

Learning Through Loss:  Getting Through the Holidays. Will meet Tuesday mornings each week beginning November 14 through December 18, 2017 at 11AM at Santa Rosa Beach Community Church.  Monthly evening grief groups will meet on two dates only, November 13 and December 18 at 630pm.

This is a FREE program, no registration is required and everyone experiencing loss and wanting grief support is invited to attend.

Thank you for any help you can give us in getting the word out… and thank you for all you do at A Simple Faith.

Please fill free to call me if you have any questions or concerns 706-442-7236 or robintharpe@gmail.com

Thank you,
Robin Tharpe

The Jesus Tribe: Following Christ in the Land of the Empire by Ronnie McBrayer

We operate under the notion that America belongs to us Christians and that we belong to it. We believe that preaching the Kingdom of God and rallying around the red, white, and blue are always compatible, but if you are like a growing number of Jesus followers, you’ve had this splinter in your mind for a while now that tells you there is something suspicious about attaching a national flag—any national flag—to the cross.

With the Sermon on the Mount as the constant reference point, The Jesus Tribe fleshes out the implications, possibilities, contradictions, and complexities of what it means to live within the Jesus Tribe and in the shadow of the American Empire.  One of his absolute bests, particularly during his “Keeping the Faith” series of sermons!
