Opening prayer for Sunday morning service was given by Joie Welker. After congregational singing and dismissal to Sunday school, we had our lesson on “I Will Be With You”. We left our class with the assurance that no matter what happen to us, God is still with us and is ever present to comfort us.
Our special song was by Joie Welker and Rod Welker, Faye Allen, Narvil Tetrick, Charlotte Reich and Brenda Hampel.
A very good recitation was given by Jeannie Miller.
Pastor Riley Hall’s message was from Matthew 17:1-8 and Matthew, chapter 24. Whatever Jesus says will come to pass, it will come come to pass. The Lord Jesus Christ and thou shall be saved, Jesus is God’s only answer to sin and heaven and earth will pass away, but His word will not pass away.
Our church sends its sympathy out to the Rick Young family in the loss of his mother.
We ask everyone to continue to pray for Faye Allen’s sister, Mae Brock, as she went through heart surgery recently and so far doing well and continues to improve.
Many and much appreciation goes out to Brenda Hampel for all of her hard work directing our Christmas program and making our angel robes, also Joanne Welker for making our scrolls with our songs in them, and all who helped to decorate the church, the Lord has blessed us abundantly.
Gentry Church will be having an activity meeting Sunday, January 9 for discussion of activities for the upcoming year.
After evening service was opened with prayer and congregational singing, a special song was done by the Gentry Singers.
Bro. Hall’s message was from Exodus, chapters 16 and 17. It was called “God’s Manna” and also Numbers 4:8-11, how God fed His people manna for 40 years and provided water, but the 7th day of the week was to be the Holy Sabbath and day of rest. They were to seek the Lord early in the morning and feast from the bread.
If you do not have a home church, we invite you to Gentry Church, we would love to have you.
May God bless.
