Church News for Thursday, Aug. 22

Jackson Chapel Church

Bro. Gary Fant got the morning worship service started off with “The Glory Land Way” and “The Old Rugged Cross,” and Bro. Dennis blessed us with “The Master of the Sea.”

Bro. Dennis’ text came from 2 Kings 4:1-9: We as Christians need to get ourselves in a place where we can get a prayer through to God, not at a point where we have to depend on someone else to get that prayer through. We have to move ourselves out of God’s way for him to be able to move on our behalf. If we have iniquity in our hearts, God won’t hear our prayer, so we need to get the clutter out of our lives so God can bless us and use us in the way he wants.

The service ended with several coming to pray.

Bro. Gary Fant got the evening worship service started off with “Oh, the Glory Did Roll,” “Won’t It Be Wonderful There” and “Send the Light.” Bro. Dennis blessed us with a beautiful song titled “I’m Not the Man I Used to Be.”

Bro. Dennis’ text came from Deuteronomy 15:7-10: We as Christians are some of the most blessed people because there is never a time that God doesn’t provide for our needs. He knows what we are in need of before we ever ask him. There are times when God blesses us and we don’t even realize that God has moved on the scene. We are way too busy to realize that God blesses us. We don’t take the time to serve Jesus Christ as we should.

Please remember these as you pray this week: Gail Fant, Melba Adams, Juanita Wilkins, Amy Solis, Karl Smith, Samuel Burnett, Cole Riley, Roy Martin’s mom, our children as they return to school this week, Duane Chadwick, our lost loved ones, Teddy Chadwick, Bro. George Williams and our service members.

Upcoming event: We will have Revival Sept. 22-24. Our guest evangelist will be Milton O’Strander, better known as “Big Mo.”

Mountain Springs Church

Services started with Bro. Kenneth Moates leading the church in the following hymns: “I’ll Fly Away,” “Old Gospel Ship,” “It’s Not an Easy Road” and “Keep on the Firing Line.”

Bro. Roger Cleckler gave a devotion from Malachi 3:6: The economy may change, the world may change and the church may change, but God does not change.

After Sunday school, Bro. Kenneth led the church in the hymn “I Love My Savior, Too” and Kellie Bice sang “He’ll Make A Way.”

Bro. Don preached from Matthew 7:13-14: God gives us a choice to enter into the kingdom of God or not to enter into it.

Sunday night’s service began with Bro. Kenneth leading the church in the hymns “Glory to His Name,” “Lift Me Up Above the Shadows” and “Where the Milk and Honey Flows.”

Bro. Kenneth gave a devotion from Psalms 34:16: If God turns his back on us, then what future will we have? Bro. Don preached from Proverbs 20:1: Alcohol is the number one killing drug in America. People seek happiness with alcohol, but they only find sorrow.

We are having a benefit singing for the Perry’s this Saturday, Aug. 24, at 7 p.m. Canaanland, Spoken For, Justified and Stacey Adams will be singing. We are going to have a wonderful time worshiping the Lord. We hope to see you there!
