Bro. Rick preached from Revelations 18 and 22 and Matthew 7: 12. He said even though there are many versions of the Bible, we should read and accept it as written. We should never try to change things written in the Bible. Many people make money more important than what it should be- we should work to pay bills and try to share with others. He said with his business, he does it not for the money, but to see how happy little people are when they get their first deer head done by him. Christians need to keep their promises, love their neighbor, not covet what others have, be honest and respectful. We are the only Bible that some people see, so we must set a good example and not make excuses. He ended by saying we need to watch our language and dress respectful; and always pray for each other. Service ended with Sharon R. and Mike H. leading in song.
