Church News for Thursday, Oct. 25By Staff Reports Published 4:59pm Wednesday, October 24, 2012
Calvary Independent Baptist Church
We would like to thank everyone who attended services this weekend, and we invite you back for any of our regular services. In the 10 a.m. service, Bro. J.T. Meank preached from Philippians 2 on the attitude of believers. He also talked about how very important it is that people know they have eternal life in Christ rather than facing an eternity in hell. We had a great time of food and fellowship downstairs after the morning message, then were blessed with some awesome singing from the group Forever Blessed. Homecoming/Old-fashioned Day was truly a blessing and great time of praising and worshiping our great God and Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.
The Sunday night service included a message from Exodus 1 on how God is always at work in the background of the lives of his people. We indeed serve a wonderfully awesome God who is worthy of all our praise.
Come visit us for any of our services. We are located on Fulmer Drive in South Clanton, just past Dollar General, off U.S. Highway 31. Sunday School at 9 a.m., Children’s Church and adult worship services at 10 a.m., Sunday night services at 5:30 p.m. and Wednesday services at 6:30 p.m. For more information, call Pastor Oscar Mims at 205-755-9399.
