Church News for Thursday, April 18

Published 9:55am Wednesday, May 1, 2013

Jackson Chapel Church

Bro. Horace Wyatt got the morning worship service started off with “I Feel Like Traveling On” and “The Glory Land Way.” Bro. Dennis blessed us with “Glory Road.” Bro Dennis’ text came from Acts 8:1-4: We as Christians need to realize that there are things that we go through in this life that are out of our control. We need to realize that God is a provider, and we need to have the faith to believe that God is big enough to bring us through whatever we face in our lives. When Satan gets after us, we need to know that Jesus Christ is someone we can turn to for whatever it is we are going through. The service ended with several coming forward for prayer and to be anointed.

Bro. Horace Wyatt got the evening service started off with “I Am Blessed,” “Where the Roses Never Fade,” and “Canaan Land Is Just In Sight.” Luke Wilson blessed us with “Jesus Loves Me.”

Bro. Dennis’ text came Romans 14:1-8: We as Christians are the world’s worst to kick people to the curb when we find out that someone has done wrong, but we need to be very careful about how we judge people because no one is perfect. Everyone makes mistakes, and instead of pushing them to the curb, we need to lift them up, pray for them and let them know that we love them.

Please remember these as you pray this week: Gail Fant, Bro. Gary Fant’s sister-in-law, Jean Mayfield, Amy Solis’ dad and brother, Bro. Roger Cleckler, Gary Hubbard, the Gay family, the Ernie Ragsdale family, Seretha Roseberry, Marie Johnson, Bro. Jeff Carroll, Bro. George Williams, Cody Edwards, our service members and our lost loved ones.

Shiloh Baptist Church

April 7 was a delightful Sunday morning in the Shiloh community as we gathered to worship the Lord. The choir sang “Then Came the Morning” and the congragtion sang “Lilly of the Valley.” Sue Buckalew sang “I’m Drinking From My Saucer ‘Cause My Cup Has Overflowed.”

Bro. Ernest’s message came from Exodus 19:10: “Go to the people and consecrate them today and tomorrow. Have them wash their clothes and be ready by the third day, because on that day, the Lord will come down on Mount Sinai in the sight of all the people.”

We ask all to pray for the Watts family. On Wednesday, one of our dearly loved members, Ms. Willie Nell Watts, went home to be with the Lord. She was a loving lady, always having a smile, and always making you feel welcome. She never met a stranger. She spread the love of God by baking pies and taking them to the sick, visiting the community and helping to grow the church. She requested songs and prayer just to let you know someone was praying for and thinking of you. Willie Nell always looked forward to church fellowship, and we have all been touched in some way by this Christian woman. She will truly be missed.
