Progress on Activities Building
We continue to make progress on our activities building. All drywall has been hung and is being finished. They hope to have the drywall finished and all 22 upstairs rooms ready for paint by the end of the month. In addition, Ryan Mansager, Lucas Cecil, and James Duenow have been working on the deck on the front of the gym. This was required to accommodate the top level emergency door. It will also provide a great location for fellowship. We are currently ahead of schedule to have the activities building completed by the Feast of Tabernacles. See recent photos >>

Feast of Tabernacles Invite
We warmly invite you to this year’s Feast of Tabernacles in Holts Summit, Missouri. Along with daily worship services and several Bible workshops, we have many activities planned for young and old, including: roller skating, volleyball, bingo, Hebrew dancing, puppet show, bounce house, and more. As for lodging, we have one remaining dorm room in our new activities building and several electric tent sites. If you are interested in a dorm room, we encourage you to register soon. Because these rooms are limited, they are only available to those who plan to observe all eight days of the Feast with YRM. There is also one hotel, America’s Best Value Inn, in Holts Summit, two miles from the Assembly. This Feast promises to be a blessing and a taste of the Kingdom. Don’t delay, register today.

TEST YOUR TUTELAGE
According to Peter in his first epistle, how should a minster lead?
A. By force, realizing the end results justify the abuse
B. Passively, allowing the congregation to do as the Spirit moves them
C. By love, being an example and showing admonition when required
D. Depending on the circumstance, all of the above
According to Peter, a minister or pastor (shepherd) is to lead by love and compassion and always serve as an example of what is right and good. “The elders which are among you I exhort, who am also an elder, and a witness of the sufferings of Messiah, and also a partaker of the glory that shall be revealed: Feed the flock of Elohim which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind; neither as being masters over Yahweh’s heritage, but being examples to the flock,” 1Peter 5:1-3. While admonition or correction is sometimes required, this too should be done with patience. A minister should never lead through force or autocratically. As well, a shepherd should never be so passive that he allows sin and accept that which is unscriptural in the assembly.
