I think we had a great Mother’s Day service here at church. Specials flowers were given to Sis. Loretta Dewitt, to the youngest mother, who was here visiting her mom and dad and to our oldest mother, Sis. Carlene Willis. She said that she had received a flower in 1949 for being the youngest mother here at Faith Rock. It was then the Assembly of God Church. Her dad, Bro. Carl Willis was the pastor. Our pastor brought a very good sermon from Matthew 1:18-25 and Matthew 2:1. We had some good singing with several specials Sunday morning with quite a few visitors. Sis. Loretta brought the Sunday night sermon. Special songs were sung by Sis. Carson, Sis. Loretta, Sis. Lena Hutchison and Sis. McCaffie and daughter, Ashley.
We’re looking forward to a great revival and want to see the church full. I forgot to say all mothers here received a flower Sunday.
