On Wednesday, Joe and Jackie led us in singing “Tell It to Jesus.” Scripture reading was from Psalms 150:6.
Our regular monthly business meeting was then conducted. Following this, we had some time to start our new Bible study in Ecclesiastes. Bro. Kieth read an introduction and the first three verses.
On Sunday for Sunday school, our lesson was “High Expectations,” from Matthew 5:17-48. The lesson talked about Jesus is the standard of righteousness for His followers, so believers can be holy only because of Christ-changed lives. Adults often make the mistake of gauging their level of moral goodness by others’ actions. Jesus doesn’t measure our lives against others’ behavior, but against God’s absolute holy character. We had a good Sunday school attendance of 58.
“Happy Birthday” was sung to Kerry Lynn Harris and “Happy Anniversary” was wished to Hunter and Dawn Dyer.
We express sympathy to those who lost loved ones this week. A sweet lady that I’d known for many years, Rose Hayden, 80, passed away last Thursday at her home in South Fulton.
Hymns sung that morning were “Heaven Came Down,” “Heavenly Sunlight,” “More About Jesus” and “Soon and Very Soon.” Bro. Kieth’s scripture reading was from Psalms 51:1-10 and 25:4-5. We rejoiced to have Dennis Phillips join our fellowship. We were glad to have our visitor that morning.
That evening we sang “Living By Faith,” “Everybody Will Be Happy Over There” and “I’ll Meet You in the Morning.” Julie Baker sang “Two Shoes.” Robert Baker sang “I Want Us to Be Together in Heaven.”
Our scriptures were from Joshua 22:5, 1Samuel 16:7, Ephesians 6:6 and 3:17.
We were glad to have our visitors back that night!
