May 1 – Wednesday evening service at Caney began with singing. Bro. Jeff Shipley began by taking prayer requests and praise reports. Sis. Lila Roberts led in prayer. Jeff read Acts 9:10-16, 13:4-5, 16-17, 42-44, 22:28-29 and 24:24-27. The Lord leads in ways we don’t understand and don’t expect usually not the way we would or want. Paul was told he would preach to Gentiles, Kings and the children of Israel. He did, but he wasn’t a free man. He was in bondage most if not all the time. He probably didn’t expect that but used it to God’s glory all the way to Rome. Christ has a plan for your life, just trust and obey.
Caney began Sunday school by singing. Bro. Jack Essary welcomed everyone. Prayer requests and praise reports were taken. Bro. Jeff Shipley led in prayer. Jack read Lam. 3:19-24 for our devotion. After an interesting Sunday school lesson Happy Anniversary was sung to Holly and Jerry Kadhubowski. God bless them. Maddie Shipley sang while offering was received.
Worship hour began with testimonies from Jeff Shipley. Service continued with singing. Sis. Melba brought the special music. Pastor Bill Austin brought the morning message. He took his thoughts from Romans 12:1-3 and Numbers 22:1-41. God will bless us when we follow Him, but He does set boundaries for us which we should not cross. How many times does it take for us to know the will of God, no matter what others say or think, follow God. We should always be found on God’s side. Judgment will come, find the perfect will of God, don’t try to justify yourself. It was a very thoughtful message.
May 19 at 6 p.n. the Goodhope Pickers will be at Caney. Come and be with us. There will be sandwiches and something to drink after services.
Evening services began with congregational singing. Pastor Bill took over the service by taking prayer requests and praise reports. Sis. Doris Lambeth led in prayer. Testimonies were given by Jim Lafferty and Melba Austin. Bro. Jack Essary was the speaker of the hour Sunday evening. His thoughts was from Amos 8. One day God is coming back and He will bring with Him scales that will weigh accurately.
The Lord is going to send a famine in the land of heaven and his holy word. Seek the Lord now while you can.
It was a good message from the Lord. Judgement first begins at the house of God. Our opinion will not matter, only the word.
