Phillip Hazelwood conducted a sunrise service at 6 a.m. at our church. Our men cooked breakfast after the service.
We had an awesome Easter Sunday morning service. We had three from our recent revival baptized and at invitation time, one lady came forth saying she had been saved and requested to be baptized. Wish every Sunday could be like that.
Phillip Hazelwood played his guitar and along with his brother-in-law, James, led us in singing “There is None Like You.” Afterwards James sang “Were You There When They Crucified My Lord” for our special music. In keeping with the tone of our service, Judy Michael our pianist played “Majesty” for our offertory.
Bro. Tony Michael used Luke 24:36-49 for his sermon text. In this sermon he told us the resurrected Jesus was not a spirit but flesh and bone that could eat and was touched by the disciples. An interesting point that Bro. Tony made was that Jesus was buried in a borrowed tomb, He only needed it for three days.
Our night service was cancelled.
A prayer shawl was made for Jerry Moody and presented to the church on Wednesday for prayer. The shawl was given to him on Sunday morning. We are in need of donations of yarn or money to buy yarn for our prayer shawl ministry. Your donation may be given to Ann Martin or Janet Vowell.
Janie Jones and Faye Maxey spent the Easter weekend at Townsend. Sights they saw on their trip included the beautiful area of Cades Cove.
Tommy Martin, Paul Crawford and Leon Russell have been on our sick list lately. We have also had some out due to viruses or flu.
Our church will have a yard sale Saturday, April 20 at our parsonage beside the church. All donations are welcome and appreciated. All money raised will go to our Operation Christmas Child project in November.
We were shocked to learn that one of our regular church members had passed away Sunday morning. Remember the family of Richard Summers in prayer. His wife, Sharon, and his brother, Robert Summers, and sister, Sue Hopkins, are all members of our church.
