On April 11, our pastor, Bro. Tony Michael, used Luke 18:9-14 for his sermon text. This sermon was on the proper attitude about prayer. Stanley Timms did a good job leading our music in the absence of our regular song leader, Darrell Mealer. Darrell was preaching at Sand Hill Baptist Church. Darrell is a very good speaker and always willing to fill in for any preacher who has to be absent. Bro. Tony and his family were Sunday dinner guest of his in laws in honor of his birthday this past week.
On Sunday night, our scripture reference was Luke 14:25-33. Bro. Tony told us in this sermon that we should make Jesus most important in our lives and expect difficulties when we do so. He said we need to be committed to his work, and we need to get our priorities in the right order. At the end of this service, we had special altar prayer for Tommy Martin.
Reba Summers Pritchett and Tommy Martin will both be having surgery soon.
There will be a baby shower from 2-4 p.m. on April 25 at our church for Mr. and Mrs. Brian Stofleth. Everyone is invited to attend.
Our Vacation Bible School will be June 7-11. Our kick off will be June 5.
Some of our ladies will be meeting at Carmack’s Fish Barn on April 17 to make dolls for the West Virginia mission trip. These are the dolls that were in our Mission Mosaic magazine.
