Church News for Thursday, Aug. 9

Mt. Carmel

Our message this Sunday was entitled “The Two Questions,” from Exodus 2:11-15. Do you know the Lord Jesus Christ? Do you want to know the Lord Jesus Christ? James 4:7 teaches us, “Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.”

Everybody faces temptation in life. 1 Corinthians 6:18 tells us our bodies are the temple of the Holy Ghost and we are not our own; therefore, we should glorify God in them and in our spirits, which are also God’s.

We welcome a new member to our church family, Mrs. Candice Hostetter.

Saturday, Aug. 11 we’ll be working around the church and there will also be a time for our prayer breakfast.

Continue to pray for the names on our prayers list and for one another.

Mt. Springs

Services started Sunday with Bro. Kenneth Moates leading the church in the following hymns: “Just A Little Talk With Jesus,” “Glory to His Name,” “I Never Shall Forget the Day,” and “Fill My Way With Love.”

Bro. Roger Cleckler gave a devotion from Psalms 139:1-3. God knows exactly what we are going through and where we are headed.

After Sunday School, Bro. Kenneth led the church in the hymn “There’s Power In the Blood,” and Mrs. Sheri Moates sang “I Need You More Today.”

Bro. O’Neal Cleckler and his wife were with us this Sunday. Bro. O’Neal preached from Luke 16:19-24. Hell is a real place. God wants us to go to heaven, but it is our choice on whether we go or not.

Sunday night’s services began with Bro. Kenneth leading the church in the hymns “I’ll Be Satisfied,” “I Will Trade the Old Cross for a Crown,” “Where the Milk and Honey Flows” and “Heaven’s Jubilee.”

Bro. Kenneth gave a devotion from John 5:1-6. The time to get what God has for you is when Jesus passes by.

Bro. O’Neal preached from Jeremiah 1:4-10. God has a calling for our lives. Let God be your strength. We were glad Bro. O’Neal and his wife could be with us this Sunday.
