Abundant Life Assembly of God – Sharon
Posted: Wednesday, December 12, 2012 8:51 pm
Bro. Bobby Peal welcomed everyone by leading “Hark the Herald Angels Sing.”
Edna Johle taught from 1 Corinthians 4:2 which says, it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful, the central truth being the Bible gives specific requirements for godly leaders. Mason Petty helped lead “Glory Glory” and “He’s A Big God” with all the hand motions. Mary led “It Came Upon A Midnight Clear” and “Joy To the World.” Bro. Bobby took prayer requests and Orrien Roberts prayed over them. Patsy Baker sang “The Shepherd Of My Valley.” Faye Peal sang “He’s Still God.” Bro. Bobby read a thank you note from We Care for the toys we donated for Christmas.
He took his text from 1 John 4:18 and titled his message “There is no fear in love, but perfect love casteth out all fear.” God is love and fear is torment and does not come from the heart. We know the Bible notes many times Jesus told his disciples “fear not for I am with you always.” People are afraid of many things today: rejection, failure in their jobs or marriages, the unknown future as we live in perilous times. The comforting peace of God goes with the Christian wherever he goes.
Bro. Bobby opened our evening service by singing “I Would Not Be Denied.”
Mary led “The Lily Of the Valley,” “Springs Of Living Water” and “Victory.” Edna Johle sang “I’m Hungry For Heaven.” Patsy Baker sang “In the Sweet By And By.” Mary sang “In the Garden.” Bro. Lainhart sang “O Say But I’m Glad.” Bro. Bobby led “Redeemed.”
He turned to 2 Timothy 1:11-14 and titled his message “What has God appointed you to do.” Faithfulness to attending your church is very important as something God has given you a desire to do. A lot of people make promises to go to church but never make the effort to go.
We again formed a prayer circle at the altar to pray for the needs.
Sunday is trade-a-card day to exchange Christmas cards within the congregation.
