Praise the Lord we were able to have church and I was blessed to get there. My daughter and son-in-law, Nancy and Leland Barnes, picked Mary and I up and delivered us to the door and picked us up and took us home. What a blessing God has given me.
Our crowd was small, but considering the weather and the sickness that is going around we did pretty well in number. We began with Bro. Dee greeting all with a great good morning. We had prayer requests for many. Prayer was led by Bro. Gregg. We all gathered up at the altar for special prayer for our pastor Bro. Gregg due to health reasons. Please add him to your prayer list.
We had the pledges to the flags and to the Bible. We sang for Jesus. We gave our gifts for Sunday school with Sister Juanita blessing them. Sunday school classes retired to their places. Bro. Bob began the adult lesson using Genesis 18:1-20, 20:18. It was a very good lesson with class comments and discussion. Dominic gathered the Coins for Christ and then we sang for the Lord. The choir was in good voice. This is a time in our service that is a real blessing. The messages in the hymns we sing is where the blessings come from. God has really blessed the people who write the songs. We at Happy Home love to sing. We gave our gifts to the Lord with a blessing from Bro. Bob. We had specials from Sister Peggy and Sister Juanita.
Bro. Gregg led in prayer and then brought the message from several scriptures – Hosea 4:6, Micah 5:1, Matthew 2:4-6, Revelations 2:19-27. A good message from the Lord. We closed with a song and was dismissed with prayer.
I was not at the evening service, but I was told it was a very good service. We were privileged to have the “Cross Group” from Ava Full Gospel Church. They did a very good service I am told. We have had them before and I enjoyed them very much. God bless them.
