Red Bank Church

Praise the Lord for the cooler weather that we are being blessed with.  It seems to regenerate one’s strength; both physical and mental.

The Church service at Red Bank began with hymns led by Gary Lirley.  Jerry Huff was on hand to welcome members and guest before dismissing them to their respective Sunday school classes.

It was announced that the Red Bank Bible School will take place on July 22nd through July 26th.  It will begin at 9:00 a.m. and end at 12:00 noon each day.  Snacks will be served to the children at 10:00 a.m. and a light lunch will be served before dismissal at noon.  Come and enjoy learning more about God’s Word, His World, His ways, His power, His love and His plan for each of our lives.  Our Bible School theme this year is:  IncrediWorld Amazement Park —A Thrill Ride Through God’s Creation.  Plan to be there Kids.  You don’t want to miss all the fun.  Please feel free to call 683-5991 for more information.

Brother Lauren began the morning sermon by saying, “It doesn’t matter how big the Church is.  It only matters how great their faith is.”  He then proceeded to preach from I Timothy 3 which states God’s qualifications that the Church should follow in searching to fill the office of pastor, deacon or any other form of a major church leader.  In Acts 20:28, the Apostle Paul exhorted the leaders of the church in Ephesus saying, Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own Blood.

Visiting with Gary and me Sunday afternoon was Pam Shell.  We spent time setting out on our front porch just visiting up a storm, so to speak.  I say that because before she left to go home it started to rain.  We invited her to eat lunch with us, but she declined, saying that she had already eaten.  She missed some pretty good barbequed ribs and fried potatoes along with a few other side dishes.  It seems that I was in a cooking mood that day.

The fifth Sunday Singing was held at the Goodhope Nazarene Church Sunday evening.  Gary and I didn’t get to attend, but I’m sure everyone enjoyed all that good singing.

Gary and I visited with Maxine Lirley last Friday afternoon.  She was doing fine.  She had just been to the beauty shop for a shampoo and set.  Gary complimented his mother on how beautiful she looked.  She is a very pretty lady in every respect.  We enjoyed our visit with her.

This spring, I planted some seeds that were given to me last year just to see if they would sprout.  The package they came in said that they were White Tomato seeds.  Well, they everyone came up, and now I’m curious to see what they will look like and taste like.  I’ll let you know; if and when I find out.

Take care and have a wonderful, safe Fourth of July holiday.
