Cedar Grove Church
To God Be The Glory!
Pastor Bro. Jeff Carroll’s message text came from 1 Peter 5:8 titled “How Did We Get To This Place: The War That Seems To Never End.”
Spiritual warfare begins when we become Christians. We enter a daily battle with Satan, but we are not alone: Jesus is our front and rear guard. You can’t hold on to both the world and to God. In other words, you can’t straddle the fence, part of you with the world (Satan,) and part of you with God. I ask you to think about it: Could you sit on a barbed wire fence for very long without falling or jumping down onto one side or the other due to pain? When you come to that crossroad in your life—and you will sooner or later—which will you choose, heaven or hell? Will you choose to be a goat or a sheep? Nothing of this world, or in the spiritual realm, can separate us from God. Only by our own choice will we be defeated by Satan or have sweet victory in Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, and reign with him in glory. Praise the Lord!
Homecoming Aug. 18 (Mark the date for the third Sunday in August, instead of the fourth Sunday.) Guest will be Bro. Randy Perry.
Revival Aug. 19-21
Have a blessed week!
Mountain Springs Church
Services started with Bro. Kenneth Moates leading the church in the following hymns: “Jesus is Coming Soon,” “Glory to His Name,” “Where Milk and Honey Flows” and “Heaven’s Jubilee.” Bro. Ricky Bice gave the devotion, and gave us a list of seven different things a Christian needs to do to become a better servant for Christ.
After Sunday school, Bro. Kenneth led the church in the hymn “When We All Get to Heaven,” and Debbie Barnett sang, “I’ve Made It By Grace.”
A Gideon spoke to us this morning. We are thankful for the message they send to people about Christ each day.
Sunday night’s service began with Bro. Kenneth leading the church in the hymns “Mansion Over the Hilltop,” “The Last Mile of the Way,” “Oh, I Want to See Him” and “The Old Gospel Ship.” Ricky and Sherrie Williams sang “Thank You, Lord, For Your Blessings On Me,” blessing the church with a wonderful song.
Bro. Ashley Bice spoke in our evening service from Ephesians 6:10: In order to make the church come together more, we need to become better soldiers for Christ. The church needs unity to stay together.
Don’t forget our services are Sundays at 9:45 a.m. and 5:30 p.m., and Wednesday’s at 7 p.m. Hope to see you there!
