First Presbyterian and Saint Paul’s Lutheran Church of Galeton, 10-16-16

First Presbyterian and Saint Paul’s Lutheran Church of Galeton, 10-16-16

Women’s Bible study is Wednesday, October 19th, at 3 pm at Saint Paul’s Lutheran church. 

Food pantry will be held there Friday, October 28th, at 10 am. 

GalePride after school program can use drink boxes and snack items. Leave items in the kitchen of either church. 

Sunday, November 13th, is the last day for Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes to be returned at First Presbyterian church. 

We welcome Leslie Kelley, who took vows of discipleship at First Presbyterian church. 

Mr. Dan Brelo spoke to us about Gideons ministry, a worldwide organization providing scripture in over 200 countries and in 101 languages. Millions of Bibles have been placed in hotel and motel rooms and prisons. 

This year 1,528 were handed out at the Potter County fair. 

Gideons also witness personally. 

 One morning while meeting for breakfast at a restaurant, their server asked if they could do something to help a patron who told her he had cancer. The patron said he had only two to three months to live. One of the Gideons witnessed to him, telling him about eternal life and how to have it. He provided his name and phone number in case the man wanted to speak to him again. 

The man accepted Christ and died only ten days later. 

His sister called the Gideon and told him her brother had much peace in his last days. 

Mr. Brelo reminded us our days are few and life is tough. Do not worry, your Heavenly father knows what we need. Seek first the kingdom of God and all these things shall be added unto you (Matthew 6: 31-33). 

Make sure you are living a life pleasing to God and the rest shall be added unto you!
