Girdner Church

Leon and Wilda Potter had visitors this past week. Kyle, Alyssa and Sirenna Moore. They all went to Springfield to watch MiKiah Moore’s softball game Tuesday afternoon.

We had a wonderful Lord’s Day Sunday here at Girdner. Sister Maxine had a homecoming service at New Haven, she had planned before comimg to Girdner.

Brother Keith Lafferty brought our morning service from Romans 5:16-21 and 19, for as one man’s disobedience, many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one man, shall many be made righteous. There are many changes in our life from birth to our death, just as from spring to winter as the seasons change. But God’s word never changes.

Sunday afternoon a visit to the home was such a blessing. Bro. Paul Potter always leads the service, however, he didn’t get to say much Sunday. The ladies and gentlemen there at the home was ready to give their testimonies and sing. I think Bro. John Haskins would have liked to preach for us. He gave a great testimony as well as others including, Sis. Maxine Lirley, Sis. Leah Lee, Sis. Frances Aid, sang a beautiful song with her daughter Sis. Linda Roberts singing a beautiful song too. After the service I had a real good visit with Chloe Wilson. She is such a beautiful lady inside and out. I was so glad I got to know her so many years ago. She worked with me at Emerson many years ago and always stood for God as she still is today. There is so many good people up there to visit and share with. They have always got such good stories to tell if we just take the time to listen. May God richly bless them all up there and those who care for them.

Sis. Maxine brought us another good message from Job Sunday night. She is going to do a series from Job if the Lord permits. So if you’d like to hear about the trials Job faced and how the never gave up on God or cursed him, come down at 6 p.m. on Sunday night. Sis. Maxine preached from Job 1:13-32. Her title was, “What Am I Gonna Do When My World Crumbles?” God may not always give us a reason for everything that comes our way, but we can through God’s word and prayer do as Job and stand firm for God. When Satan throws things in our life and he will, God may take the hedge from around us just as he did Job. So will we stand for God and trust Him, as Job did or will we crumble? Will we acknowledge that God is our God and changes not? Will we praise him even when we don’t feel like it? Remember this week that God wants to have a relationship with you!

Bro. Gary’s Wednesday night service on the 16th will be on commitment. They have some really good meetings and lots of participation, so come and join them at 7 p.m. on Wednesday.

This Sunday night we will be having singing and refreshments and fellowship afterwards. I’m sure there will be some good testimonies also. Everyone is welcome to come.
