Sunday our attendance was good for worship service. Some of our members were out for different reasons; hopefully they all will be back soon. Several visitors were p resent and they always add a blessing to our service and we thank God for their willingness to come worship with us. The choir’s special was, “Dwelling in Beulah Land.” We were blessed again to have Anthony Cottrell bring the message, “Don’t Knock it until you try it,” Psalm 34:8. As humans most of us like to eat and will eat almost anything then we say I don’t like this or that, then the question comes, have you tried it?” No but I know I wouldn’t like it. Well finally we try it and it taste pretty good after all. The point is we have to put the food in our mouth first and taste it. There was a lady once said she tasted love of the Lord. Have you tasted the love of Christ? This eighth verse says “Taste and see that the Lord is good.” We can take refuse in Him and find shelter in Him, we can face anything if we taste love of the Lord, God is our great provider, His provision goes over and beyond what we need if we trust Him. He says we will be encamped by the almighty Lord if we fear and seek Him, we should live in this knowledge everyday and the taste of good food will draw others in so we must share love of Christ with them to taste and see, take refuge in Christ, take the plate and pass it around, sin will be known when we feel love of Christ, then we can tell them, “Don’t knock it until you try it.” We serve an awesome God. On Sunday night at 6 p.m. the attendance was good with visitors present. Anthony Cottrell’s message, “What are People Looking for in the Church?” They are looking for open relationship with friends and family let them express themselves as brothers and sisters in Christ without fear of being bashed. Jesus wants us t o tell Him how we fee. Honest leadership it is tough but important to be true to themselves, it is tough but important to be true to themselves and others, be the same in and out of the pulpit if not this could destroy body of church; Unconditional love for all; Humility, Jesus showed humility on the Cross; A desire to be connected with people, to be picked up by the body of Christ and recognized for what they do. Matt. 7: 2, be there on both sides of need. Gal. 6: 2, Carry each other’s burdens, encouraging them along the way; Titus 2: 7-8, Be an honest example whether pastor, or a deacon, will tear up body of church if not honest and true, 1 Cor. 1-13, People looking for love, anything done without love is worthless. Gal. 6: 3-4, Lay all pride aside, inside and out, admitting your wrong, shows you’re human. Our Fall Mission Festival was well-attended Saturday evening by adults and children.
