It was an extremely blustery day, but we had a great day to worship. There were many prayer requests, still folks with health issues, those having medical tests and others still recovering.
It was Veteran’s Day and Brother Ric used several scriptures to speak about the lives that were given in foreign fields, and the life our Savior gave for us. He also spoke about how we should honor the flag.
We are especially proud of our two veterans, Brother Martin and Brother Don. We appreciate their service and all others that have or are serving. God Bless Them. Brother Martin took part in the ceremony at the Ava Cemetery,in honor of 11-11-11.
Some from the church attended the service at Cross Point Church Sunday evening for the ordination of Pastor Ric’s son, John. Brother Oren preached the ordination service and as usual did an excellent job. We congratulate all the Englehardt family.
