Mountains Springs Church

Services started with Bro. Kenneth Moates leading the church in the following hymns: “Send the Light,” “I Feel Like Traveling On,” “Where the Soul Never Dies” and “I Shall Not Be Moved.”

Bro. Roger Cleckler gave a devotion from John 14:1: Heaven will be our home because not only will our family be there, but God will be there. This world is not our home; we are just passing through!

After Sunday school, Bro. Kenneth led the church in the hymn “When We All Get to Heaven” and Bro. Sam Ross sang “We Need to Thank God.”

Bro. Don preached from Genesis 1:1. His sermon title was “A God of Order in the Midst of Our Disorder.” Only God can bring light into our lives in the midst of our troubles. God is looking for us to seek him and he will give us strength.

Sunday night’s service was our “End-of-the-Month” singing, and everyone did an outstanding job serving the Lord through song.

Here’s a verse for you this week: The Lord is far from the wicked: but he heareth the prayer of the righteous: Proverbs 15:29. As long as we stay close to God, he will always hear our prayers.

Jackson Chapel Church

Bro. Gary Fant got the morning service started off with “I Love to Tell the Story,” and Luke Wilson blessed us with “Jesus Loves Me” and “Deep and Wide.”

Bro Dennis’ text came from Job 42:7-10: We as Christians need to be careful about judging people. We don’t know what people may be going through nor do we know what someone may be going through.

Julie Solis and Faith Castleberry led the congregation in “He Set Me Free” and blessed us with “Are You Washed in the Blood.” Julie blessed us with “You Can’t Cross the Bloodline.”

Our guest speaker for our youth service was Robert Holloway. He gave his testimony about how God had brought him through a tragic accident and how he lived to tell about it. He also spoke about how this accident has brought him closer to God and how he uses this tragedy to share how good God really is. He wants to share his testimony with this lost and dying world in order to win lost souls to Jesus Christ.

The service ended with people coming to pray.

Happy Birthday to Janice Cobb.

Please pray for these as you pray this week: Samuel Burnett, Juanita Wyatt’s family, Gail Fant, Karl Smith, Charlie Mitchell, Dale Lett, Karli Chadwick, Roy Martin’s mom, Mason Pate, Angie Caudle, our service members and our lost loved ones.
