Our wild game supper and singing Friday night was just wonderful. We had a full house and most stayed for the singing. Some wonderful ladies decorated our tables for the dinner and they were just beautiful. We appreciate it ladies! Our singing was just great. Bro. Rod Humbyrd and Bro. Wayne Anderson came and played for us and sang. Several specials were performed from the crowd too, as well as the congregational singing. A great meal, fellowship and singing was reported by all.
Our Christmas play is planned for December 15 at 6 p.m. Our story is about two little angles, Lo and Behold, who have come to see the Baby Jesus and have lost their way back Home to heaven. However, when Simeon and Anna, who have been promised to see the Messiah before their death, finally see Him, Lo and Behold, finally may have found a way home. Come and see the story unfold December 15th at 6 p.m.
So glad to see some out for Sunday school and church Sunday morning who haven’t been with us for awhile. You are so missed when you aren’t there!
Sunday morning Sis. Maxine preached from Jonah 4. Again, God gave her so many things to bring to us. Jonah had went from disobeying God, not going to Ninevah, being in a storm, thrown overboard, ending up in a fish’s belly and finally preaching to a wicked city of Ninevah. They repented and God saw this and did not over throw them. Now we hear Jonah displeased and angry again. He just didn’t get what God was really concerned about, people. God was concerned about the people of Ninevah. He wanted them to repent and be saved. It’s the same for us today. He wants us all to repent and be saved. He also wants us to go out there and tell others about him, so they may want to be saved before it’s too late. No matter who they are, or where they may be, God is concerned about them.
Sunday night Sis. Maxine continued in Job 38 and 39. Now God speakds to Job from a whirlwind and asks him many questions. I’m reminded of these questions as I sat here this morning and watched the sunrise and now, not two hours later there is no sun shining and it’s sleeting outside! Only God would do these things. These are just like some of the questions he asked Job. Could he do this, was he there when he found the world and did all these things? Great storms come to Job. Many storms come our way. However, we have not faced such storms as Job. Just as God spoke to Job through his storms, He will speak to us through ours. We need Him in our heart and lives to face the storms and trials that come our way. Peace can be had, when we surrender to an Almighty God.
From all of us at Girdner, we wish you a very blessed Thanksgiving. Enjoy your families and friends at this special time of the year. Give thanks for all the many blessings He has bestowed upon us all.
