Jackson Chapel Church
Bro. Gary Fant got the morning worship service started off with “When I See the Blood” and “He Set Me Free.” Bro. Dennis Smith, Angel Bavar and Wanda Chadwick blessed us with “What a Beautiful Day” and “Right On Time.” While they were singing, people began to come pray. If you missed the service, you truly missed a blessing, because the Holy Spirit was present in a mighty way.
Bro. Dennis’ text came from Joshua 1:1-9: We need to be strong and courageous in whatever God leads us to do, because if he leads us to do something, he will also give us what we need to complete it. Jesus Christ also knows the things we’re going through and just what we need. He will always show up right on time. We also need to be very careful who we follow because not everyone is of God, and if we’re not careful, some of those people will lead us down the wrong road. We as Christians are to be careful about the decisions we make today because those very decisions can affect us for the rest of our lives.
Happy Birthday to Shawna McKinley.
We will have Revival Sept. 22-24 with Bro. Milton O’Strander, better known as “Big Mo.” Everyone is invited.
