Feb. 23 – Church began with all our usual things, pledges, singing, and prayers for all those in need. As always, we thank Him for answers that came, though they may not always be the one we would like. We continue to have those with illnesses and hope they are better soon.
Brother Charles continued his thought from last Sunday, reading from Zephaniah and Matthew. Last Sunday he talked about the sad day, this week it was, the great day. When the Lord returns there will be many happy, glad Christians, however, there will be many sad people that chose not to accept salvation.
We sang Happy Birthday for Brother Lyle Poland.
