We began our service with many, many prayer requests. Jerry Pitts prayed this prayer. Our devotional reading was from Psalms 147 followed by singing. Aaron Humbyrd and Daniel Wilson received our Lord’s tithes and offerings with LeaAnn Crum at the piano. Several testimonies were shared about our Great God. Danny Johnson led us in song before Pastor Neal prayed the pastoral prayer and read from Joel 2,” therefore also now says the Lord, turn you even to me with all your heart with fasting, with weeping and with mourning”. He then asked a question, does the Bible show us how God is in control of the sun and the moon? He read Joshua 10 where the sun and moon stayed. In Isaiah 38 he read how the shadow went backward. This same God is now working in our behalf. Brother Rick Crum prayed the dismissal prayer.
At 5 p.m., we had choir practice followed by the 6 p.m. service. Brother Nathan Humbyrd was our guest speaker. We had a large crowd—praises and testimonies were given. Our choir helped Rhonda Dobbs sing. Rod Humbyrd sang as well as LeaAnn and Erin Crum. Brother Nathan said his message for the church was “God will deliver you from it or He will deliver you through it”. We had a great service. Special prayer was prayed for Richard Mitchell with all of his family and for many others with needs. Pastor Neal announced we would be having revival this week.
Next Sunday at 4 p.m. will be our annual business meeting. We need to pray much that God will fill all positions. May our church grow in the Kingdom of God. Come and worship with us. You are always welcome.
