John 3:16. “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life”. 17, For God sent not his son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through him might be saved. This was the key verse in our Sunday school lesson Sunday morning.
Brother Benny, our pastor, brought a very good message from 2 Kings. This was about when the pot of food was found to be poisonous, Elisha threw some meal into the pot and no harm was done. The other scripture was when the water was bad, Elisha put in a handful of salt and it was made good. A lot of serious prayer requests were given to be prayed for.
We had a very good weeks revival with Stan Wallis and his wife, a beautiful singer from Salem, Mo. We enjoyed their annointed ministry.
We also are having bible study on Tuesday evening, from 6 until 8 p.m.. Brother Victor Murdy is teaching now from Acts, it is very good teaching.
We had a wonderful 4th Sunday singing here at Faith Rock last month with Sybil Gheer. The singing this month witll be at Ava General Baptist Church. I wish all churches would come out to these if possible and bring their singers. It is a good community thing to do together.
I want to say a happy anniversary to our daughter Sherry and son-in-law, Wes Wallace. Also, a very happy 90th birthday to my cousin Dessie Miller and hope for many more for her.
It seems the senior center jam session on Monday night started out good last week. It drew a good crowd and many playing their musical instruments. Jerry said it was a good thing for the center to do. I hope to get to go this week, depending on what time my grand-daughter, Albany, plays basketball. They won in their tournament and will play tonight. There will also be a soccer practice tonight for the little ones we want to see. I don’t know how wet the field will be though. We sure had a good rain. I found out it was cancelled until Thursday night. It’s pretty cool but going to be warmer then.
Sister Loretta preached Sunday night on “storms”, telling us they all have a purpose in our lives, but hard while going through them, that all things work together for good to them that love God. The scripture she preached about was Mark 4, where Jesus was asleep in the hinder part of the ship, when a great storm caused the disciples to believe their ship was sinking. They woke Jesus and he rebuked the wind and said to the sea, “Peace be still”, and it was so. Jesus can calm all our storms, also, if we can believe. Sometime we have to go through some storms.
We appreciate everyone who helped out Sunday night and to all that make it their church home, you are always welcome here.
