Wednesday evening we met together to praise the Lord and study His word. Bro. Jim Lafferty was our leader this week. Sis. Lila Roberts led in prayer. Jim read I Chronicles 13:1-4, 13 and 15:1-3 and 12-15 and 25. Our nation needs to turn to Christ. Then and only then will we see things get better. We need to pray and ask God how to do the things we should do and stand aside and let the Lord work. All had good scriptures that everyone can and should live by.

On this beautiful Sunday morning we met together to praise the Lord and learn more of His word. Bro. Jack Essary welcomed everyone. Bro. Jeff Shipley led in prayer. Jack read Hebrews 11:8-16 for our devotion. The faithfulness of God when we try to do His will. After a wonderful Sunday school lesson, Happy Birthday was sung to Lila Roberts. God bless her. Maddie Shipley sang while offering was received. What a blessing.

Praise and Worship began with testimonies from Lorrinda Coulter, Jeff Shipley, Lila Roberts, Melba Austin and Jim Lafferty.

We proceeded to congregational singing with Charlee Lafferty leading. Special music by Charlee Lafferty, Melisssa Harmon and Jimmy Lafferty. Pastor Bill Austin brought the morning message from I Sam. 23:16-18. We need to be encouragers to others, but when no one encourages, you know that God will. He will keep all His promises.

Sunday evening opened with singing praises to the Lord. Pastor Bill took charge of the service. He took prayer requests and praise reports. We have many concerns. Bro. Jack Essary led in prayer. Testimony was given by Janice Lafferty. Bro. Jim Lafferty was our speaker this Sunday evening. His scripture he spoke from Amos 6:1-8. We look for a life of ease and trust in worldly things instead of working for the Lord and trusting in His promises. We wonder why God’s not blessing. We have to put the Lord and His way first in our life. We had a great day in the Lord. Come worship with us.
