So many things have occurred during the past two weeks making it virtually impossible to address them all. Therefore, I will only attempt to present a few.

On Jan. 13, Roetta McCutchen did an excellent job of teaching our lesson on the importance of our “Attitudes.” For Special Music, Durwood and Maria Worley sang, “Cleanse Me.” The scripture reading was Isaiah 51:1-6, and the sermon was about “Taking Inventory.” We take inventory; we look back and see God’s mighty acts. We see God’s love and take count of God’s promises. We see the limitless blessings from the storehouse of God and then we go forward with strength, confidence and hope.

Shirley Gardner is continuing to slowly improve following her recent serious illness.  Hilda (Smith) Elliott became very sick last Monday and was transported by ambulance to Lourdes Hospital in Paducah. We are thankful that initial tests laid aside the fears of it being her heart; however she is still awaiting results from some of the tests. Please join us in prayer for all who are sick or recovering.

With good attendance Sunday, Tom McCutchen taught our class lesson titled “Gain and Loss” from Philippians 3:1-11. Sunday school at Hopewell is always great and always Bible based. Larry Morgan sang, “House of Gold” (including some verses this reporter and most people had never heard) written by the late Hank Williams. Bro. Worley sang, “We’ll Talk It Over” composed by the late Ira Stanfill.

Bro. Worley’s sermon, “The Mind of Christ – In You” was based on Philippians 2:5. Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus. We need to practice thinking as Philippians 4:8 instructs us.

Immediately following our morning services, everyone assembled in the fellowship hall for a fantastic church dinner. This included our visitor, Charles Hearod. After the meal, a wedding shower was giving for pastor Worley and his new wife Maria. They are so thankful for the many household items presented to them by the sweet, wonderful people of Hopewell C. P. Church.
