Good morning! Okay as you read the quote again the old saying you’re as old as you feel not as old as you look so let’s all (especially us older ones) just keep looking up and enjoy the day. If at all possible try and act your age. Looking through the cracks and crevices, well what? Things seemed to be changing including flipping through the faded columns, which I have written in the late 50s and early 60s. Tons of water has really gone under the bridge. By the way speaking of the weather and rain here on Coon Creek we had three inches of rain. My! Other places more. Let’s forget about the weather. Speaking of age if you catch yourself thinking of those even in their prime of life get yourself in the mood of doing some type of therapy, which Dan Hicky has a poem running through his mind all the time. (Read his poems) Tri-Bee’s therapy is more or less the Monday morning therapy. Sometimes a vessel gets clogged up! Any way keep smiling.
Yes I know most of you who have been in Morgan County a long time knowing the meaning of our column Tri-Bee. Yet numbers of new ones have moved in and still coming in. Okay sometimes I may get out of my territory. The two churches and community, Trinity and Bethany Churches and over on 441 where the Trinity church is well there in the midst is the Fairview Community. At one time a school and probably a church. The Fairview club continues to have their meetings. Okay, both churches continue to grow in attendance, numbers of visitors.
Following the Trinity morning service a baptismal service was held with one adult and two younger ones being baptized. The fifth Sunday night singing was enjoyed by the choir and other specials.
On Sunday morning the church was close to being full, we had several visitors present and we welcome them to come and be with us at any time to any of our services. We pray they received a blessing by being with us today. The call to worship was “Shine, Jesus, Shine,” by the choir. Special music, “Above All,” by Patsy and Denny Pickett. Bro. Ron brought the message from Jude, Matt 13: 55-56 and other scriptures. Judas or Jude were half brother of Jesus and a bond servant of Him. Once we’re saved we’re always saved, we cannot lose our salvation, we’re living in a world of deception, and there is nothing fruitful about false teaching. We can’t get to heaven on our good works; we have to accept Jesus as our Savior. He is the only way. The Bible reveals His will.
On Sunday night at 6 p.m. the church was full. The youth were in charge of the service. They presented skits, special music, took up the offering and their director Anthony Cottrell brought the message on Creation vs. Evolution.
Our revival was held last week, Sunday night through Wednesday. We had great services each night, thanks to all that came bringing special music. It added so much to the service and we pray God will bless you all. Several people were saved and we thank God for each one of these. Lives were touched and re-dedications were made. God was so good and really blessed our church during the revival and we give Him all the praise, honor and glory.
The cookbook committee will meet on Tuesday night, April 8 at 7 p.m. at the church.
Next Sunday afternoon, April 6, at 2 p.m. Brownwood will go to Nurse Care for singing and visitation.
The Morgan County Associational VBS Clinics will be held at Brownwood Baptist Church on Thursday night, April 10 from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. and Saturday morning, April 12 from 10 a.m. to 12 noon. All VBS workers should plan to attend.
