Bill read James 2:14-18, 4:1-3, 15-17 and 13-16. Faith is essential, but we need to work for the Lord, show your faith by your works. It is good to come together to study the word and praise the Lord. Come be with us. The Lord always blesses.
One thing we know for sure, we will never learn or understand it all. What we know is good. We learn so much hearing others ideas and explanations.
Sunday school opened with singing. Bro. Jack Essary welcomed everyone. Prayer requests were taken and Sis. Melba Austin led our hearts in prayer. Jack read Hebrews 10:19-25 for our devotion.

Sunday evening service began with singing. Bro. Jeff Shipley welcomed everyone. Prayer requests were taken. We have many concerns that the Lord will take care of. Bro. Jim Lafferty led in prayer. Charlotte Roberts gave a testimony. Bro. Jim Lafferty was the speaker. Sunday evening he brought his message from John 3:39-47, 6:35.

Keep on witnessing, you’ll be blessed.
