Opening prayer was led by Joie Welker for our Sunday service. The congregation was dismissed to Sunday school classes where our lesson was on “Qualifications For Spiritual Leaders.” Spiritual leadership means godly leadership. God’s work is a matter of eternal life and death.
Our special for the morning was by Janice Young and a recitation by Narvil Tetrick.
We were glad to have Bro. Jesse Lafferty and his family with us Sunday morning. He was our guest preacher and done a good job. His message was from II Timothy 4:1-5, which tells us the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine. Preach the true word always, we are here to please God and no one else. The world is full of false doctrine, but God will always be with us and lift us back up if we stumble and fall.
Remember our third Friday night singing is March 18 at 7 p.m. at Gentry. Also, don’t forget our perfect attendance contest is till going on, so try to attend Sunday school this coming Sunday.
Best wishes goes out to Mindy Welker, daughter of Joie and Stacy Welker and Jesse Taylor, son of Dorthey and Richard Taylor, of Springfield who are getting married March 26th at 4 p.m. at Samuel Cedars in Rogersville.
Bro. Lafferty’s evening message was from John 14:1-31. This chapter is good food for the soul, Jesus didn’t forget about us after He died, but He send the holy spirit (our comforter) to help us and lead us.
Bro. Lafferty will be preaching again at Gentry next Sunday morning and night March 20. Everyone is invited to come and hear this young man.
