Union Springs News
By Willie Ann Johnson
We were awakened again this past Saturday with more thunder, lighting and rain and also wind, but thank God we were spared one more time from the storm, and it passed over us again. We have a lot to be thankful for.
On Sunday our church was filled with members and visitors as we celebrated Black History. We had as our speaker Rev. Robert L. Terrell of Calvary Baptist Church, Madison, where the Rev. Hoke L. Smith is his pastor. Rev. Terrell brought his message from the book of Matthew 14: 22-31, "If Jesus is in the storm let me out of the Boat." What a sermon! You know, sometimes in life we face life’s ups and down. Sometimes we are troubled back and forth, but if Jesus is in the storm let me out of the boat because I know the storm will pass over and I will be able to stand for whatever situation comes before me. Pastor Terrell continues to preach the word and may God continue to bless you in your ministry. We also want to thank his family for coming out to support him. You are always welcome at the Springs where everybody is somebody and Christ is all, and we really enjoyed the sermon.
Our next church event:
Sunday, March 2, Women’s Day, 3 p.m. Pastor Stella Head of True Life Ministry will be our guest speaker and The Men of USBC will be preparing the food. Come out and help make this program a success.
Keep all the sick, shut-in and bereaved in your prayers and thought.
Thought for Week: "The storms of our life prove the strength of our faith."
