Church News for Thursday, April 4By Staff Reports Published 9:36am Wednesday, May 1, 2013
Calvary Independent Baptist Church
We were blessed with many guests attending the Saturday evening Easter play. We thank everyone who made this event possible and pray that through it, the gospel message was clearly illustrated regarding the life, death, burial and resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We also thank all those who attended services on Sunday.
Sunday morning’s service included a message from Luke 23-24 and 1 Corinthians 15 about our risen Savior.
Sunday night’s service included a message from Proverbs 30:15-16 about a horse leach. Some people and things of this world will destroy your life and the purpose God has intended for you if you allow them to latch onto you. Christians always need to be prepared for that ole adversary, the devil, who wants to destroy their testimony, and if at all possible, their very lives. Always prepare for battle, carry the sword the Spirit uses and trust in the Lord. Make sure you always stand on the side the Lord, Jesus Christ is on, and you’ll be on the winning side.
We invite you to visit for any of our services. We are located south of Clanton, past Dollar General, off U.S. 31 on Fulmer Drive. Sunday school: 9 a.m., Children›s Church and adult worship service: 10 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. Wednesday service: 6:30 p.m. For more information, call Pastor Oscar Mims at 205-755-9399.
Mountain Springs Church
On Sunday morning, we had sunrise service. Bro. Wayne Hughes preached from Hebrews 7:24. During days of insecurity, you can always count on the prayers of Jesus, God’s provision, and the presence and promises of Jesus.
We had a wonderful breakfast after the service, which was provided by some of the men from our church.
Sunday morning’s service began with Bro. Kenneth Moates leading the church in the following hymns: “Come and Dine,” “Victory in Jesus,” “Just a Little While” and “He Lives.” Bro. Roger Cleckler gave the devotion from Matthew 19:26: Easter means that with God, anything is possible.
After Sunday school, Bro. Kenneth led the church in the hymn “Are You Washed in the Blood,” and Sam Ross and Debbie Barnett sang “If You Knew Him.”
Bro. Don Vanderslice and his wife, Mrs. Florence, were with us this morning. Bro. Don preached from Mark 16:1-14. We must never forget that Jesus is alive. We don’t need to be afraid of death because it is just a gateway to heaven.
On Sunday evening, we held our end-of-the-month singing, and everyone who sang did an outstanding job.
The Down East Boys will be at our church Sunday, April 7, at 9:45 a.m. We invite everyone to come and enjoy the service. We hope to see you there!
