January 27 – Sunday school opened with singing. We were blessed to have Sam and Judy Clemans with us. Judy blessed us by playing piano. Sam led some of the songs. Bro. Jack Essary welcomed everyone to service. We had several concerns and praise reports. Bro. Sam Clemans led in prayer. Bro. Jack read Matthew 25:14-31 for our devotion. We dismissed to study God’s word. After a good Sunday school lesson we sang Happy Birthday to Ethel Metcalf and Jim Lafferty. God bless them.
Praise and Worship began with testimonies from Jeff Shipley, Hi Lambeth and one of our visitors. Congegational singing was followed by good testimonies. Singing specials were Maddie and Gracie Shipley. We had a guest speaker, Bro. Jack Keithly, who took charge of the service with singing and preaching. We were really glad for all the visitors. Bro. Keithly’s thought was that we have to grow as infants and also as Christians. We have to learn how to live. The Bible is the best teacher. This is the place and time to get ready to go to Heaven.
We met after a very good service for food and fellowship. Everyone said it was a delicious meal. We had several visitors and guests. Please come back anytime.
Sunday evening service began with congregational singing. Bro. Jeff Shipley welcomed everyone. Prayer requests and praise reports were given. Sis. Lila Roberts led in prayer. Testimonies were given by Bill Austin.
Our speaker this Sunday evening was Bro. Jim Lafferty. He brought his thought from Ecch. 8:1-6. Judgment is surely coming, no matter what you do living the Christian life, if you don’t accept Jesus into your heart He will say depart from me, I never knew you. Our country needs to get back to God and following the Bible. Surely the world needs to hear this message.
Come worship with us, you are welcome.
