Church News for Thursday, June 26

Samaria Baptist Church

What a wonderful amazing God we serve! Our pastor, Shane Wyatt, began his message from 1 Corinthians 11:23-34. As many times as we hear the words, we will never get tired of hearing that he died for me. Jesus made the ultimate sacrifice for our salvation to be made complete. Let us remember where we were in life when we met the Master. Let us remember where he brought us from. When we truly absorbed the value Jesus put on our souls by giving his life in order to save us; then we are ready to be a vessel of worth to his cause.

Imagine how excited Satan must have been for the days that Jesus body rested in the tomb. He must have really believed that he had won. Praise be to God our Heavenly Father that Satan will never win. Please don’t let him win daily battles with you. Receive the truth of God’s word. Our Savior sits at the right hand of the Father. We are to share the word of God and his reason for his death until he comes again.

Repent and seek forgiveness before partaking of our Lord’s communion. Examine yourselves before you participate in this solemn service. It is not God’s will that anyone perish, so if we end up in hell, it will not be the responsibility of our Savior.

Prayers are for Curtis McCary, Barbara Collins, Bobby and Leone Patterson, and Ms. Graham and her children.

Diane Fisher sang “Finish Well” for special music.

Remember that sins can be removed as far as the east is from the west. May God give you mercy, and may you receive his grace. Join us at Samaria for an old-fashioned Jesus experience. God bless you all.

Rocky Mount UMC

What a wonderful way to spend a Sunday morning! We heard details of Daniel’s night in the lion’s den and then moved on to worship service.

Our Scripture came from the Acts 13. While studying the life of Paul, we find many excerpts from his sermons, but this is the only full length, complete sermon preached by Paul. You are encouraged to read the entire chapter.

Paul started preaching and then went on to a bit of meddling. The crowd was enthralled and excited. They were drawn to his preaching and the idea of trusting to be saved. The entire city gathered to hear the word of God. God honors faithfulness. Can you imagine if the entire city of Clanton, Jemison or Thorsby just shut down so that everyone could be in church to hear God’s message? Think about the story of Chick-fil-A and how they stand up for Christian religions values.

Join us as the youth of the church and community gather at Rocky Mount each Wednesday. We invite you to join us, especially now while you aren’t having to worry about getting your homework done for the next day.

Sunday, June 29, is another special day at Rocky Mount. We encourage you to wear your jeans and join us for the regular Sunday morning Sunday school and worship, followed by a fellowship meal. Come one, come all!
