Due to the holiday, we had several folks missing, however, we had a great Sunday school lesson and worship service. We have many to pray for, and some to be thankful for better health.
Brother Ric read the story of Mary and Martha which was on doing what Jesus would have them do. We know it is needful to make preparations for food, etc., but how much more to be sitting and learning at the feet of Jesus.
The children did memory verses which were great, keep up the good work.
Camp is beginning this week, be in prayer for that. We will be sending food, Friday.
We will host the Gideon speaker, Sunday morning. Brother Ted Cain will be giving the message, as well as, showing a short video, please join us if you can.
