Brotherhood Breakfast will be held on Sunday, February 3
On Sunday morning the attendance was good with visitors. We always welcome them and pray they were blessed by coming and will be with us again at any of our services as God leads. We were blessed to have “The Compton Sisters” from Shiloh Baptist Church with us to bring special music. They sang “John Saw,” “Lord of the Dance,” and “You’re Grace Still Amazes me.” These young ladies are very talented and we appreciate them coming and sharing their talent of singing with us. Another special, “Here I am to worship,” by Anthony, Alicea and Connie Cottrell, Patsy and Denny Pickett, Barbara Sims and Christy Brown. Bro. Ron’s message “Not I but Christ”, Col. 3: 1-4 parts of Col. 2 and other scriptures. God never forces himself on anyone; the mind of God has been revealed to us in His word; once we’re saved we’re always saved according to God’s word; we keep seeking from above and set our minds on things above. Christ is our life, the Bible tells us to walk as He walked by faith.
On Sunday night at 6 p.m. a good attendance with some visitors; as they come we welcome them and receive a blessing by their presence with us. Tonight our special music was by one of our visitors, Mae Buice. She sang “God has the storehouse.” This is a beautiful song and is a sermon within itself; we appreciate her sharing it with us. Bro. Ron continued on Spiritual Gifts Sunday night it was on “Teaching,” I Cor. 12 and many other scriptures. Any person with this gift likes to study, delights in research, has great emphasis on word meaning, and is a public gift because it is a call to explain truth.
Next Sunday morning, February 3 at 7:30 a.m. will be the Brotherhood Breakfast with a business conference and prayer in the Brownwood Family Life Center. All men are invited.
