Rock A Thon for Annie Armstrong Mission raises more than $500
By Margie Ward
On Sunday morning a very good attendance present with several visitors; our visitors are very special to us and we pray they sensed God’s presence among us and will come and be with us again. We were thankful some of our sick members were better and back with us today; we’re still praying for others that continue to be closed in due to sickness. The worship service was opened with prayer and testimonies. Special music was by Alicia Cottrell “Where Sorrows and Joy Meet.” Bro. Ron’s message “How can we offensively deal with Satan?” Scripture was from Philippians. We can keep Christ the center of our lives, proclaim Christ with right reason, God will honor His word, and it is not bound. We need to praise, lift up and live Christ. As believers Christ is our everlasting companion. Trust Christ, seek His interest and not our own. Like Paul want to know Him, have respect for Christ, He is Savior of the world, gave His life on the cross and arose from the dead for us. God’s grace is sufficient; He has in store for us more than we will ever know; we need to rejoice in the Lord because our rejoicing comes from God.
On Sunday night at 6 p.m. the attendance was good with visitors, seems like the TEAM KIDS and adults and youth were well attended also. Bro. Ron continued on Spiritual Gift of Prophecy.
The children and teachers want to “Thank” everyone that helped make the Rock A Thon on Friday night for Annie Armstrong Mission a great success. They raised $559.30. A job well done, thanks.
