Everyone welcome, come looking for a blessing. There will be good singing each night. You are welcome to share your gospel music with us.
Sunday both teachers were out so I taught the primary. I enjoyed that at Garrison Church. Lisa Ellison sang a special and Melany Stevens sang a song. We had 63 again, some were not there. If everyone came, the same Sunday we would have a big crowd. It just doesn’t work that way. More people get the spirit going and we had that. Pastor James Orick brought the message. Bible says if two or three gather in my name, I will be there, but He is happy if we put Him first. It also says to assemble ourselves together. More people more likely someone will be saved. That’s what all the churches want that believe in our Savior.
I hope we receive a rain. Farmers hay crops are not yielding as much hay as last year.
Sunday night several wanted to have church at 6:30. Some churches dismiss for Memorial. They usually do, but glad they wanted to keep the doors open. Come join us. Sunday school 10:00 am, church 11:00 am. If your church closes Sunday night we would love to have you.
