News & Announcements
During the nine years I preached for the Woodsﬁeld church of Christ this was the proclamation I repeatedly heard in my house. Whatever the emergency, whatever the question, the answer was to call Randy. The car won't start -- call Randy. The horse is out -- call Randy. The horse is dead -- call Randy. How do I make hot mustard? What do I do if the peppers in the hot mustard burn my hands? What does it mean when a chicken lays a purple egg? How am I going to get to the airport? Where are we going to get wood for the stove? Shannon's response? "You better call Randy!" I had no way of knowing that first Sunday I met him that Randy Williams knew so much about so many things and had so many connections to so many people. I had no way of knowing that he would be my doctor, my mechanic, my carpenter, my travel agent, my vet, my chef, my marriage counselor, and the only man other than my father, that Shannon would allow to be so involved in all of our dilemmas. One of the hardest things to swallow about being three thousand miles away from Monroe county is not being able to call Randy. Now admittedly, the only thing I hate worse than talking on the telephone is having to ask someone for help while talking on the telephone, but I sure miss having the option!
Having a friend to call on is a great blessing in life. Having an all-powerful God to call on is an even greater one. Sometimes our friends can't answer the call. Sometimes they won't. And sometimes even when they answer, they are unable to help. As I read my Bible, I hear my God saying, "Call me. Call me anytime. I care about you. In fact, I'm waiting on your call. And I do have the power to help you."
Not only does he know a little about everything, he knows everything about everything. And as for connections, he doesn't seem to need any. When you call with a sincere, obedient heart, he answers. And what‘s broken, he can ﬁx. What's hurting, he can heal. Who's lost, he can save. At some point everyday you should call on God. He is your friend and your salvation.
HUMBLE YOURSELVES, THEREFORE, UNDER GOD'S MIGHTY HAND, THAT HE MAY LIFT YOU UP IN DUE TIME. CAST ALL YOUR ANXIETY ON HIM BECAUSE HE CARES FOR YOU. 1 Peter 5:6-7

A Note From Our New Interim Minister
In Galatians 6:10 the Apostle Paul offers encouragement and instruction to believers with these words: “So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.” As Christians we want to “do good to everyone.” We can show compassion to those in need, offer a compliment to someone discouraged, render aid in seasons of distress, or teach the gospel to a hungry heart. We ought to always be on the lookout for opportunities to “do good.”
I am excited to be your interim minister here at Woodsfield as you continue in the process of identifying someone to come full-time and work with the church. I’ve been asked to come on Sundays and Wednesdays to preach and teach and I’m delighted to do that. I love preaching and teaching and hope that for the time that I’m here it will be a blessing to you. My goal is to “do good” and I pray that the Lord will use me these upcoming months to give you encouragement on your journey of faith. Please know that I am praying for the Woodsfield church daily. I know it is difficult to be without a regular minister and as you continue in your search I pray the Lord will grant wisdom and patience.
If I can be of help to you in any way please feel free to contact me. You can call or text me at 502-533-4550 or shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for the opportunity to serve. I’m excited for us to partner together to “do good” for God’s glory.

The new garage is up and the men have been working hard in preparing the grounds around the new Joy Bus garage. Thanks to Donnie Weber and his equipment, drainage ditches have been installed, landscaping around the garage has been changed and now we are in the process of ordering concrete. We are blessed to have a great team of deacons and members who donate time and sweat to get the job done. A big thanks goes out to Jeff Bettinger, Ron Beardmore, Dan Watkins, Dan Christman, McKenzie Christman, Cordell Gauding and Donnie Weber for the great job they have done for God's Kingdom.
We have set a goal of $2500 to buy 100 Bible Sticks for our troops. The family has given $5,180. Thank you church for your giving.

The new Joybus garage is going up. Again we thank God and the people He uses to help win souls. This facility will help keep the Bible School on wheels protected from the harsh elements of weather through the years. God is so good to this family and we want to continue to bring souls under the sound of the Gospel so that God’s powerful Word can change lives and all Glory and Praise be given to the king of kings and Lord of Lords. Pray for the Joybus Ministry as we knock doors and look for open hearts to receive the kindness of Jesus Christ.
"Come follow me, and I will make you fishers of men" Jesus said, Matthew 4:19. The command is to follow Christ and win souls. The Joybus Ministry is one way this family reaches out into the community to fish for souls. Your prayers, giving and sacrifice to achieve this goal is greatly appreciated by this family. This ministry greatly effects Education, Bldg. & Grounds, Children’s Worship, Benevolence, Finances, Fellowship, Youth and local Mission. Let’s seek and save the lost thru Joybus evangelism in 2016. Jude 23, "snatch others from the fire and save them."
