We were glad to have some of our regular members back after an absence and had a very interesting Sunday school lesson. Mae Cox and Bessie Hall were both able to be out this week and we were blessed to see them both.
Brother Ray Dobbs was our speaker in both services, even though he was fighting allergies, he did a great job with both messages. Those present could say it was good to be in the house of the Lord.
We appreciated all our visitors Sunday night, it is great to have other churches support each other.
Bro. Scotty Eaves will be our guest speaker in both services Sunday.
Bro. Max Stephens will be preaching March 18, both services.
Mae Cox’s visitors this past week were Donna Nichols, Tim Hall, Lauren and Hunter, Lisa Johnson and Jesse.
