Services began with prayer for those in need, the military, the unsaved, those with illnesses, nursing home patients, and the bereaved. We were sorry to hear of the death of pastor’s niece in Kansas City.
Brother Ric used the title,”Satan In His Best Dressed Suit”, as his message Sunday morning. He read his main scripture from 2 Corinthians 11:13-15. Everyone has their own idea of what satan or the devil looks like, and mostly it is a misconception. He looks like those we see and mingle with everyday, that’s why he is hard to deal with.
We plan to have an Easter sunrise service, beginning at 7 a.m. for the preaching time by Brother Ric, followed by breakfast and Sunday school. We invite everyone to come and join us and still be able to get to your church on time.
