Special music was given by Ethel Metcalf and Melissa Harmon. Pastor Bill read Matthew 12:43-45 for his scripture. The spirit of God and satan cannot live in the same place. When Crhist lives within us, satan has no power. Satan is trying to drag people down. He doesn’t want to go alone to that wicked place. Don’t let him drag you down. Keep Christ first in your life. Have you lost your desire to serve God? Where were you this Sunday?
