Jim Lafferty was our leader this week. He took prayer requests and praise reports. We have many concerns and much to be thankful for. Bro. Hi Lambeth led us in prayer. Bro. Jim Lafferty read Ephesians 1:3-14. How wonderful to know that we are loved by Christ and have redemption through His blood. Heaven will be ours if we ask Him into our heart and repent. We had good discussions and wonderful scripture reading. We were glad for our visitors. We pray that you’ll come again.

Sunday evening service began with singing. Bro. Hi Lambeth was too hoarse today to lead the singing, but the Lord provided for us. Thanks to Him and Rose Sartin, Melissa Harmon and Ethel Metcalf. Bro. Jeff Shipley took charge of the service. He took prayer request and praise reports. Sis. Ethel Metcalf led in prayer. Testimonies were given by Jim Lafferty, Melba Austin and Lila Roberts. Pastor brought the evening message. Matthew 11:1-19 is where he took his thoughts. How will we know it’s Jesus? Just look and see all the good things Christ (with witness) done. Through the death burial and ressurection of Christ we have assurance of eternal life. Sis. Ethel sang. It was a good way to close service.
