Mount Carmel No. 1
On this cloudy Sabbath, we had a glorious time with the Lord. We were few in number, but knowing Jesus is the most important treasure that God gives us. We were thankful to be with our friends and visitors this Sunday morning.
For the morning message, Bro. Derrell preached from Timothy 4:5. The sermon was titled “Keeping Watch.”
Paul was telling Timothy to carry on the work by following his example: Preach the Word, regardless of the consequences; resist false teachers; watch your ways; be in the center of God’s way; watch your words, for in many things we offend all; speak loving and kind words. Timothy was told to watch thou in all things and shun profanity and vain babblings. Keep watch, for we are all laborers together with God. Our number one goal is to reach the lost.
The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few: Matthew 9:37
On Sunday evening, our message was taken from Exodus 6, 16:1-3 and titled “Can’t See the Future Because of the Past.”
God spoke to Moses and said, “I have heard the groaning of the children and I have remembered my covenant. Deliverance is promised and I will bring you in unto the land and will give it to you for a heritage. Don’t look back.”
We come to church so we can grow stronger in faith and draw strength from each other. Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Come worship with us this Sunday. May God bless you. Remember to pray for all the sick ones and all the prayer requests.
Prayer list: Donald Liveoak, Vickie Edwards and family, Janet Dennis, Jenny Hayes and our church.
Bro. John Dennis will teach “The Baptist Faith and Message” on Wednesday beginning at 7 p.m.
Prayer time will be held each Sunday morning following Sunday School. Please meet with us in the prayer room to pray for our morning service.
July 28: Homecoming, beginning at 10 a.m. Guest singers “To the End.” Bro. Larry Patterson will be the guest speaker. Lunch will be served following the service. You are invited. We will not have an evening service on this date.
