After 61 years of worshipping in our sanctuary with 3rd, 4th and 5th generations of families coming together, we moved into our new sanctuary on Sunday morning, December 12th, and the spirit of the Lord came with us. We are not finished yet, but we needed our old sanctuary as a fellowship hall for our annual Christmas dinner. It was nice to have with 66 people in attendance. We give our Lord the praise and glory. Bob Siler was with us. He said the only thing wrong was the empty pews.
Prayer requests were shared as we came together on our Lord’s Day. They were for Bonita Stafford, the homeless, names in our book on the altar, Fay Humbyrd, Dane Humbyrd and others. Doyle Humbyrd prayed this prayer.
Some had new classrooms to meet in for Sunday school. As we came back together for worship, Jim Harris and Brad Siler received our Lord’s tithes and offerings.
Pastor Neal thanked the workers who worked day and night this past week. He prayed and read from Luke 1, Zacharias in the temple and the angel’s visit. The angel, Gabriel, said, I have been sent to bring glad tidings. We have our Bible today that brings us glad tidings.
Tuesday at 7 p.m. will be our special prayer meeting. Lord, make our church a house of prayer as it should be.
Wednesday at 7 p.m. will be our Bible study from Genesis. Pastor Neal is so faithful to keep us updated on the events of our world as related to the Bible. We do so appreciate Him.
Next Sunday, many will be caroling in the neighborhood and delivering fruit baskets to the shut-ins. We will also have gifts for our prayer child in the church. Fruit baskets and treats will be handed out to the church family. We love our family of God. May his love flow through a hurting world.
