Bro. Tony Michael used Psalms 2:1-12 Sunday for his morning sermon text. This was a message on salvation. He told us in order to get to Heaven, each person must realize that he is a sinner, confess his sins and believe that Jesus is Lord.

That night, Bro. Tony read from Philippians 4:10-23 titled, “We Can Teach Contentment.” He told us people need to understand that God is all sufficient, the resources of our heavenly father are limitless and there is deliverance in God.
