Mount Carmel No. 1
We are thankful for all who attended our services. This Sunday was set aside to honor all our graduates: Lauran Liveoak, Laia Jones, Colins Hostetter and Little Jacob Jones. The congregation enjoyed a slideshow of all the graduates showcasing the graduate’s life from birth to current. A great lunch was served following the morning service.
Bro. Derrell preached from 1 Samuel 16:1-13 with a sermon titled “David’s Secret Power.” David was the youngest of eight brothers. He was brought up to be a shepherd, the son of Jesse of Bethlehem. When David was young, the prophet Samuel was sent to Jesse to anoint a new king for Israel. Jesse made seven of his sons pass before Samuel, but Samuel said, “The Lord has not chosen these.”
Man promotes talent and ability, but God promotes character. God chose David, and God is looking for some young Davids in the church today. Are you willing to take your role? It comes as a result of choosing Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior.
Bro. John Dennis will teach “The Articles of Faith.” Watch for the dates of this Bible study.
The youth of our church will have a car wash on June 29 at Advance Auto. They are also staffing the concession stand at “Movies in the Park” on Friday nights. Please help them by bringing drinks and bottles of water.
On June 30, our church will join with Mulberry Church for a “Fifth Sunday Night Singing.” Come and join the praise in song.
VBS isn’t just for the little ones; we have classes for all, even you adults. It is a great outreach tool for youth and adults. We need to teach the Bible more to all ages. VBS will be June 23-28.
At this time, Jacob Jones is in the hospital; please pray for him. We also ask for your prayers for the other requests of our church prayer list. Pray for our church and all others. Our nation and its leaders need prayer.
Come and worship with us this Sunday.
