Church News for Thursday, April 18By Staff Reports Published 9:55am Wednesday, May 1, 2013
Cedar Grove Church
We would like to take this time to thank everyone for your thoughts and prayers for our church family.
Bro. Jeff Carroll’s text on Sunday came from John 4:16-26. His sermon was titled “True Worshipers.”
Are you a true worshiper of God? Do you know what it means to be a true worshiper of God? It seems that a lot of people are confused about their worship. A lot of people claiming to be children of God sit on a bench in a church somewhere, thinking that if they go to Sunday school and for preaching, they are worshiping God. God tells us in his word that we must worship in spirit and in truth: in spirit, by having the spirit of God in us, and in truth, by believing and proclaiming the true gospel of Christ. In other words, being in the right relationship with God, being born again, washed by the blood of Jesus and saved by his grace. If you do not know Jesus as your true Savior today, nothing else will matter on the Day of Judgment. Please do not delay; accept Jesus as your Savior today, for he is knocking at the door. Will you answer?
Homecoming: August 18 (the third Sunday, not the fourth). Guest will be Bro. Randy Perry. Revival will be held Aug. 19-21. We invite everyone to attend.
Prayer concerns: Gary Hubbard, Bro. Jeff Carroll, Roger Cleckler, Janet Wyatt, Douglas and Joyce Scott, Sallie Davis, spoken and unspoken requests.
From the Cedar Grove family: Have a blessed week!
