Brownwood Easter Egg Hunt set for Saturday, March 22 at 10 a.m.
By Margie Ward
Sunday morning a good attendance with visitors; we pray they felt God’s presence among us and received a blessing by coming and will come back to any of our services. We had several members out today, a lot of them are sick with whatever is going around, maybe after seeing the doctor this week they will be back with us next Sunday. The call to worship was “Victory Chant.” The choir special was “That’s why we praise Him,” special music by Howard and Denny Pickett, “Speak the Word Lord.” We were blessed today to have Dr. Mark Sterling with us and bringing the morning message, “Praying with Great Faith,” Luke 7: 1-10. The centurion approached Jesus by faith coming humbly asking Him to heal His servant, he said he knew he was undeserving of this and even unworthy of His presence. Jesus honors a humble heart, this centurion solider had a sweet spirit, he accepted Jesus by faith, told him he would accept whatever He did, he understood both directions, said he would follow under His authority and submit to His will. Jesus said to him, I have not seen such great faith. We should anticipate opportunities of faith like the centurion, trusting God to do something. When we face difficult situations in life and pray believing we should expect great things, God always has a bigger picture of what’s going on. Without faith it is impossible to please God. Dr. Sterling is the Director of Prayer and Spiritual Awakening with the Georgia Baptist Convention.
On Sunday night at 6 p.m. a good attendance present with visitors. Bro. Ron continued Spiritual Gifts on “Prophecy” I Cor. 12 and 14 and Rom. 12: 6.

I received this in the mail last week. This is really good. I was asked to include it in this week’s column so I quote “Here’s the latest at our house.” Anybody is welcome to visit Kenny, Yvonne and Cody Harper on Friday. Somebody came by on Saturday afternoon. Everybody came by Sunday for lunch and to watch the race. Nobody left until Tuesday. We enjoyed the visits and can’t wait to see them all again.
