Rev. Steve McHargue, area director for the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, as well as the interim pastor of Airline Baptist Church in Mayo, was the speaker for the Holy Week service held Monday, April 14, at Grace Presbyterian Church in Madison.
The service began in the beautiful sanctuary, with Faye Todd playing the prelude to worship.
Dr. Roger Gibson welcomed everyone on behalf of Grace Presbyterian Church before the call to worship and hymn of praise, “Man of Sorrows! What a Name.”
Jessica Ratliff performed “The Weight of the Cross” wonderfully, accompanied by her grandmother, Faye Todd, on piano.
Rev. Retis Flowers gave the invocation and said the offertory prayer. An offering was received for the benevolent work of the Madison County Ministerial Association.
Pastor McHargue then read Mark 8:27-30 and gave his message for the morning, “When God Doesn’t Do What You Want Him to Do.”
McHargue and his wife, Jan, have two children, Chris and Bryan. Chris is a senior at Florida State University and Bryan and his wife, Jamie, are expecting their first child in early May.
The message closed, with the hymn of assurance, “He is Lord,” followed by Pastor McHargue giving the benediction and blessing the food.
