Sunday morning attendance was good, missed all that didn’t get to come because of sickness in family, job traveling etc. We were glad to have visitors present today and pray they were blessed by coming and will be with us again soon as God leads.
The Call to Worship, “Come Let Us Worship.” Bro. Ron recognized all men present that served in the military, thanking them for their service to our country. Joe Brown was the deacon of the week and opened the service with prayer. The choir special was a medley of the older hymns.
Bro. Ron’s message was “Battles we face today,” Exodus 17: 8-16 and other scriptures. God used Moses when the enemy attacked people of God. Moses sent Joshua to choose men and go out and fight the enemy. Moses took stand, stationed himself on the hill holding the rod of God up with his hands, surrounded by faithful supporters. Israel was winning but when Moses rested his arms down, then soldiers of Amalek were winning. This is when Aaron and Hur stepped up, rolled a stone for Moses to sit on and they stood by him on each side holding up his hands until sunset, then Joshua and his troops crushed the army of Amalek with their sword. The Lord told Moses write this for a memorial in a book and recite it to Joshua to be remembered forever and tell Joshua I will blot out every trace of Amalek. Moses built an alter and called it “Jehovah is my flag.” Moses said, “Raise the banner of the Lord” for the Lord will be at war with Amalek’s generation after generation.
Victory comes when everyone does their part. Pastors today, like Moses then need supporters to help one another. Sunday night at 6 p.m. attendance was good. Bro. Ron continued discussion “By being committed to one another.” Following the morning worship on Sunday the choir had lunch in the Family Life Center.
