Church News for Thursday, Sept. 13By Staff Reports Published 3:50pm Thursday, September 13, 2012
Calvary Independent Baptist Church
We would like to ask everyone to remember our newlyweds and keep them in your prayers. We want to thank everyone who attended the wedding on Friday night and thank the visitors attending church services this weekend. Morning services included a message on propitiation and was taken mostly from Romans 3:21-26. Evening services included a message from Acts 2:41-47 on the church and what kind of church would we want to be a member of. There are many good applications to be made from the early acts of the apostles, mainly because the book of Acts was about action. The thing missing most in the churches of our day are the people who name the name of Christ and then actually live their lives for Christ. If you are not attending regular services somewhere, we want to invite you to our doctrinal Bible study on repentance this Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. You are also invited to attend Sunday services. Sunday School starts at 9 a.m., Children’s Church and Adult Worship Services at 10 a.m. and Sunday night services at 5:30 p.m. We are located south of Clanton just past Dollar General, off Hwy. 31 on Fulmer Drive. For more information, please call Pastor Oscar Mims at 205-755-9399.
Rocky Mount United Methodist Church
Days don’t come with much more beautiful weather than we had on Sunday! What a great day to be in the house of the Lord!
Rocky Mount is now broadcasting the Sunday morning message at 7:30 a.m. on radio station WKLF FM 95.5. Join us then and meet our new preacher, Bro. Phil Guin.
Bro. Phil gave us a lot to think about Sunday. After giving us a most comical example of believing in what you are selling, he went on to press us as to whether we are doing our best selling job when it comes to selling our Lord and Savior to others. Do we go the extra mile to love others, even when they might not seem too loveable? Do we use our hands and our feet to help us in spreading the word? Do we always preach and when necessary, even use words? How can you be an evangelist in your community? God expects us to reach out and be his witnesses. We can’t wait to include others in the Kingdom of God. Seek those who are lost for the sake of the Kingdom of God. Take a risk and extend yourself to Jesus. The answer might not come until many years later, so don’t watch for your answer as soon as you say, “Amen.”
We are so delighted to be back in our newly refurbished sanctuary. We invite you to join us and see what we are so excited about! Website: www.rockymountumcjemison.com.
