Wednesday night, March 2, service began with us singing “There Is A Name I Love To Hear,” after which Bro. Gerald Wilkerson led in prayer. We sang “Where We’ll Never Grow Old,” “Where No One Stands Alone” and “Heavenly Sunlight.” Six of our young men brought a wonderful rendition of “When the Roll Is Called Up Yonder.” Bro. David Long blessed us when he sang “The Way Faring Stranger.” Many prayer requests were expressed and then Bro. Bobby Doughty prayed. Bro. Pete’s Bible Study was from Joshua 3. The Lord always goes before us. We have to follow him. He will lead us through our Jordan’s. Bro. Gary Long dismissed in prayer.
Sunday morning, March 6, we opened our Sunday school by singing “The Great Physician.” Bro. Bobby Doughty asked for prayer requests. There were praise reports and prayer requests. He then read from Philippians. Ryan Doughty dismissed us to our classes. Our lesson was Faith Under Fire from I Peter 1:1-12. It was a good lesson. If you are not attending Sunday school we would love to have you. Bro. Bobby Doughty dismissed us in prayer.
Bro. Pete opened our worship service with “Have Faith In God.” Bro. Billy welcomed everyone and asked for prayer requests. Ryan and Hunter Doughty received the morning offerings. Hunter prayed for these requests before the offering was taken. We then sang “The Solid Rock” and “The Lily Of the Valley.” Bro. Billy’s text was taken from Mark 10:17-23. We have a choice where our soul spends eternity. The rich young man went away grieved because he had great possessions. Our hymn of invitation was “Just As I Am.” Many prayed at the altar. One joined by letter and one rededicated their life. Bro. Johnny Campbell dismissed us in prayer.
Sunday night, we began our evening worship service with “Love Lifted Me,” “Sweet Beulah Land,” “This World Is Not My Home,” “Mansion Over the Hilltop” and “What A Beautiful Day.” Bro. Billy welcomed everyone and expressed comforting words for all who have sick loved ones both physical and spiritual. He reminded us of our youth outing next Sunday night after worship service. His text was Luke 18: 18-26. We must accept Christ as Savior in order to go to Heaven when we die. Our hymn of invitation was “Do You Know My Jesus?” Bro. Jim Riley dismissed in prayer.
