Church News for Thursday, July 26By Staff Reports Published 7:44pm Wednesday, July 25, 2012
It was a very exciting day. I have been away from the news due to health reasons. I want to thank everyone for their prayers and cards.
We are sorry to lose one of our dear church members, Mrs. Rosa Cleckler. She went to be with the Lord last week. Our loss is Heaven’s gain.
Happy birthday to Wanda Bullard, June Collins and Donna Caton.
The singing was great, congregation and choir. Bro. Alton Russell and Sam Price blessed us with the specials
We were happy to have the visitors today. Among them were Mr. and Mrs. Sid Godbee. We hope you enjoyed the worship service and will come again.
Bro. Jeff Carroll preached a good message entitled “The War.” His text came from Ephesians 6:10-14. Chris Cleckley sang the invitation song and several came to the altar to pray.
One of the exciting things that happened today was when the door was opened to leave, a long black runner snake came in. He was escorted back to the hayfield by Matthew Hubbard. Probably all, the ladies especially, would say he was at least 20 feet long, but truthfully about five or six feet…which is plenty big enough.
Christ Independent Methodist
On this glorious Sunday we began morning worship with the congregation singing “To God be the Glory,” “Wonderful Savior” and “His Name is Wonderful.”
Dr. Mac Stinson’s sermon dealt with “Breaking Down Walls.” His scripture reading was from Ephesians.
This scripture was written by the Apostle Paul to the people of Ephesus and for circulation among the early churches. The central theme is unity through Christ, including complete Christian unity in the family and in the church.
The good news is that no wall seperates us from the kingdom of God, which gives us free will to accept or reject.
Prayer list for the week: Dr. Mac Stinson and his son, Carl Glass, Mary Ann Carden, Ronnie Glass, Kelly Parker, Cindy McCarvitt, Mable Mitchell, Cathy Lufta, pray for Christians worldwide, our military, their families, our leaders, church, community, Shea Simms in Kuwait, his family, little Israel and for each other.
Next Sunday we will begin a new study of the book of Daniel, starting at 5 p.m.
Our condolences go to the family of James Earl Johnson.
Have a blessed week.
