Home Bible Fellowship - Euless
Hey Everybody! I hope you all had a great week. I wanted to just send out a quick reminder that our next meeting will be on October 21st, back at the Hewitt's home at 6:30. Dometrius will be continuing our study in the book of James.
James 1:13-18 was our topic last time and we had some good discussions on avoiding temptation. We had some good discussions on ways to avoid temptation. Some ways I wrote down are finding accountability, staying in the word and in prayer, taking responsibility, and looking at the big picture. A great point that was brought up was Charles Stanley's HALT acronym which stands for Hungry, Angle, Lonely, and Tired. These are times when we can be most vulnerable to temptation. I copied a link below to one of his sermons where he talks about this.
Great verse from this week-
No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.
1. Cor. 10:13
A couple of announcements for this week:
Next week we' re going to be bring "fall" themed food. Please let me know if you would be willing to bring food or dessert. We'll have coffee and apple cider to drink.

Please continue to spread the word as we are growing this group in the area. If you would like more of the business cards or door hangers, let us know and we can get them to you. Also we are open to any ideas that you have about outreach, or building the PBC West core group as we continue with the home bible fellowship. In the meantime, please continue to be in prayer for the requests that were brought this week and let me know if there is any way Kim and I can pray for you.
