A large group gathered at Mt. Tabor Church for morning services beginning with singing, prayers for many, many needs, Sunday school and great preaching services. We appreciate all the visitors and invite them to come back each time they can.
Brother James Hathcock was our guest speaker this week. His message in the early service was from the theme, “Jesus Is”, and asked the question, is He the one, or should we look for another, very interesting. The evening service was, “The Encore Church”, with many points about what brings folks back to a church, after they attend once. Glad to have many family members come out to hear Brother James.
