    In your September newsletter, you will find a prayer guide for the 2018-2019 Tennessee Missions Emphasis. Please read the guide and pray for the people featured and the prayer needs listed.     Wednesday, September 12th, we will be starting a Bible Study for men on Wednesday Nights. Shad Simms will lead a study through the book “Praying the Bible” by Don Whitney. This is an incredible tool to help you pray the will of God by praying the Word of God. If you’re a guy who is not plugged in anywhere on Wednesday nights, this might be the perfect opportunity for you to learn about the habit of prayer with other men. Please sign up in the Welcome Center in the Atrium, or see Shad or Pastor Drew.     The Senior Adult Choir will be singing Sunday, September 16th at Calvary Baptist Church in Lenoir City at 6 PM.     Deacons of the Week:
