We start out our week here at New Hope with the ladies who join together and lift prayer requests up to the Lord. Wednesday night Bible study group have been going over the book of Genesis. This week we went over 9, 10 and 11 which is geneology and the tower of Babel. We had a wonderful study.
Sunday morning our attendance was 22. We had many prayer requests and then dismissed to Sunday school. The adults started at Luke 4:34 and 5:39, “Thou shalt catch men and new wine, new bottles.” The children learned about Jesus walks on the water, and Jesus feeds the multitude. The children sang two songs for us and had their penny march. We sang songs and had prayer. Bro. Scott delivered God’s word to us from II Chronicles 7:11-22. Our churches should be a Holy place to come to. It should be dedicated and sanctified in the name of God. It seems more and more that people are trying to use trickery to “woo” us in to churches, with the wordly things. God and the spirit should be what draws us in. What has happened to that old time religion? We need to get rid of the garbage from our churches, seek God first, live righteously, live holy in the eyes of our Father. Honestly, I wonder if churches are more of a circus attraction or a house of God?
Sunday evening we had an attendance of 18. We had one new member join. Praise God. We just want to say welcome to the family sister! Please remember when in prayer, our troops, our community, our nation, our sick and elderly in homes, the struggling churches and that the Lord might grant the one closest to eternity one last chance to be saved. We had specials done by Sis. Dee Dee, Shanna, DiAnne, Gin, Bro. Larry, Mike, Scott, Squeak and by Bro. Marvin. Our evening message was delivered by Bro. Scott and was from Jonah 2:1-10. Usually this story is popular among children, but the truth behind it is, is that Jonah was diobedient, and tried to run from God. We should all desire a servant’s heart. Yes our God is one of mercy and love, but also one of wrath and due justice!
