December 3 – It was a beautiful day to worship the Lord. We had many mentioned for prayer, the bereaved, those facing surgery, the lost and those alone at this time. We were blessed to have Sister Gladys Peak come with Brother Charles to play the piano.
Brother Charles spoke about all the headlines we see are about bad things, so how do we follow the scripture, 1 Thessalonians 5:18, “In all things give thanks, for this is the will of God.”
