Ava Assembly of God

Our services began with our bluegrass band singing hymns of worship. Brother Bill Coats sang a special song for us. He did  a wonderful job. Pastor Buddy’s message this morning was on Tests. None of us like tests, but they are needful to see if we have progressed any in our lives. At the end of our life we will all stand before God and have the final test. We will all give account of what we have done for God and what we haven’t done. The scripture this morning was from Acts chapter 4 and 5 about Ananias and Sapphira pretending to be something that they weren’t. When we come to church we need to be real with our lives and our problems and not pretend everything is okay, but bring them to Jesus and pray for change in our lives. We are all equal at the foot of the cross and not one of us is better than the other. We all have problems that we need answered. The main goal we should have is to please Jesus and we will evangelize naturally. We should help others find Him, know Him and serve Him.  Pastor Buddy also spoke on hypocrisy in the church telling us that strong vibrant faith cannot grow where hypocrisy is tolerated. Pastor Buddy does a great job every Sunday bringing us the word. We also had a good Sunday School class with Sister Wanda bringing us the lesson from Psalms chapter 37. Before class started she also shared with us this chain letter in search of the perfect Pastor. The results of a computerized survey indicate the perfect pastor preaches exactly 15 minute sermons. He condemns sin, but never upsets anyone. He works from 8 A.M. until midnight and is also a janitor. He makes 50 dollars a week, wears good clothes, buys good books, drives a good car, and gives about 50 dollars weekly to the poor. He is 28 years old and has been preaching for 30 years. He has a burning desire to work with teenagers and spends all his time with senior citizens. The perfect pastor smiles all the time with a straight face because he has a sense of humor that keeps him seriously dedicated to his work. He makes 15 calls daily on members of his congregation, shut-ins, and the hospitalized. He spends all his time evangelizing the unchurched and is always in his office when needed. If your pastor does not measure up, simply send this letter to six other congregations that are tired of their pastor. Then bundle up your pastor and send him to the church at the top of the list. In one week, you will receive 1,643 pastors and one of them should be perfect. Have faith in this letter. One church broke the chain and got it’s old pastor back in less than three weeks.  Have a great week in the Lord.   COLLIDE SERVICES will be April 4th at performing arts center everyone really be praying for the services.
