Shiloh Baptist Church
The Shiloh Community was quiet and breezy last Sunday morning as Bro. Chad Foshee brought the message from Luke, Matthew and Acts. It was about asking the Lord for forgiveness for others.
Praying for others even though they may not treat us right is important. Jesus asked for the Lord to forgive those responsible for crucifying him. Stephen asked forgiveness for those who where stoning him, saying they know not what they are doing. We can all apply this to our own lives.
Special prayers for Bro. Ernest Fike.
We would like to invite everyone to come join us for some special events we have coming up:
•March 24: Montevallo BCM will visit with us at 5 p.m. with food and fellowship to follow.
•March 25: Pray Across Alabama at 10 a.m. at the county courthouse.
•March 31: Easter Sunrise Service at 7 a.m. followed by breakfast.
