Church News for Thursday, July 26By Staff Reports Published 7:44pm Wednesday, July 25, 2012
It was a very nice Sunday morning and even nicer being inside in the cool, worshiping the Lord.
Bro. John Parrish led the call to worship –“This is the Day,” followed by “He Leadeth Me! O Blessed Thought.” Jenny Mims delighted us all with “He Was Thinking of Me,” and Dennis Connell topped it off with “Life of This World.”
Bro. Earnest Fike brought the message from Matthew 6:24-34 and Luke 16:19. He reminded us to live like there’s no tomorrow. We are never promised tomorrow; no need to worry about what you should eat, drink or wear. God promised if we seek the kingdom and his righteousness, all theses things will be given to you. Therefore, don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. Have faith. The invitational hymn was “I Have Decided to Follow Jesus.”
Please pray for all those involved in the Colorado shooting and for our country.
Happy Birthday to: Jan Fike and Billy Carter.
