Preacher’s message was John 3:16, stressing God’s love for His Darling Son, His Only Begotten Son, as He gave Him that all his other children who believe in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. God’s attitude toward sin, the world, His Son, all believers and all who will not believe.
Our mother’s word of endearment was “darling” and we all loved hearing it.
One can almost hear Emy Howerton saying, “Darling,” her way.
A beautiful patriotic arrangement on the Lord’s Table. Thanks to those who set it up.
Geoff Hill took over Jim’s music leadership as he and Beth had done to “Rock the Universe” in Orlando. Andy and Amy Robinson and family had gone. They will forever be missed by all of us now that they have moved to Live Oak. They were always willing and able to do anything! Lord, bless them.
Robert Stokes prayed a fitting offertory prayer.
Lynne on the piano and the orchestra played “America the Beautiful” and touched us since 9/11 has certainly been on our hearts and in our minds. Worship Choir sang “By His Wounds.”
Very happy to see Juanita in church. Also very happy to see all our visitors.
AWANA began Wednesday and we pray earnestly for all involved. Kara Washington announced Good News Clubs resume Sept. 20 at Central and Sept. 22 at Pinetta and asks your help if you can and if not then desires your prayers. God does work in every situation.
Remember to pray and give for the Season of Prayer and Maguire State Missions Offering all month. I was sorry to have missed Nita Fico’s nine-day mission trip report to El Salvador last night. Jesus said the fields are white unto harvest and the laborers are few and we are to pray and pray and go as we are led and pray for those who go.
Please, remember to call Sandra in the office when you know of those in need of prayer!
