We had people out with sickness, and vacation, however, we had a good lesson and good discussion. We had many prayers for our loved ones and those on the sick list. Pray for our country with all the problems and our leaders that they will use God’s guidance in making their decisions.
Since it was the Labor Day holiday, Brother Ric read from I Thess and also, some from II Thess, on what the bible says about God’s people working. He tells us to work by the sweat of our face, a lesson we should take very seriously.
We also appreciate our visitors, especially that Sister Joan Pond was able to play the piano for us, hope she and Charlie will come again, soon.
Brother Zohn Engelhardt was our guest speaker Sunday evening, and he spoke on the holy spirit. He did a very good job and we appreciate him coming.
Another reminder about Old Folk’s Day, Sunday, September 8, 2-4 p.m. Each one is invited to come and sing, read a poem, a reading or talk about something in days gone by that was special to them. Gifts will be given and door prizes will be awarded. It is always a fun day!
