Opening prayer to start our morning service was by Joie Welker.
This week in our Sunday School lesson we explored the power of God’s word and laws has to change the face of our communities as it is passed down through the generations.
Our specials in rememberance of 9-11 and showing our appreciation for God still being over our country. All the little children marched up front and faced the flag saying, “The Pledge to the Flag.” Brenda Hampel did a very touching reading and Narvil Tetrick did a reading called “the Old Flag” with the Gentry Singers doing “Battle Hymn of the Republic.”
We welcome our visitors, Jim Coonts from Iowa and Ruby Buchanan. Remember our Third Friday Night Singing here at Gentry, September 16 at 7 p.m.
We are so thankful for the good praise reports for Ashley Forrest, her coming through surgery and doing well enough to come home. And also Willard Short is having work done on his eyes and is beginning to see a little bit. The doctor is hopeful that he may help him to restore some of his sight. There is power in prayer. Gentry has a prayer chain going anytime we get requests.
Come and join us on Wednesday nights at 7 p.m. We are still having our videos and Bible Study. This week it will be “Paul Goes To Rome.” They are so interesting.
Pastor Hall’s morning message was from Numbers 21:1-9. The people were discouraged and grumbling once again about their wonderings in the wildnerness. God sent serpents and people were bitten and died. They cried out to God and He saved them once again. They were rebellious people then as are today against God.
Our Sunday night service was special with singing and testimonies that blessed everyone. Doug and Sheila Miller treated us to watermelon afterwards. It was a good day in the Lord.
