On Saturday, June 14 Brownwood Women’s Ministry met at the Community building. Barbara Sims, Sara Jones and Margie Ward also attended that meeting with the other eight women that were mentioned in last week’s column. Attendance Sunday for morning worship was good, visitors were present and we appreciate their faithfulness week after week. Visitors are always welcome to come to any of the services we have. Our honored guest today was Rev. and Mrs. Hoyt Johnson.

The call to worship was “What a Day.” In the absence of Bro. Ron Vernon Mullins did the welcome and announcements. Deacon of the week Joe Brown opened the service with prayer. The choir special was “The Old Gospel Ship.” Special in song, “When It’s my Time,” by Peggy Harper. Bro. Johnson’s message, “Mandate for Evangelism.” Luke 19:10, The Death, Burial and Resurrection is what saves us. There are some churches that don’t preach much about the cross; some hardly ever mention the blood. We all have been called to evangelism; know for sure your heart is right with God.

We can’t all be pastors or go to other parts of the world, but we can carry the word of God to the lost and dying world around us and share what Jesus has done and is doing in and through out lives. We’ve heard the saying we need to take America back, well we need to start in our homes, neighborhoods and surrounding areas, praying for them, knowing God answers the prayers of people that have a right relationship with Him. God has power to work after we sow the seed. There is no shortage of God’s power in any church. People have said they have a plan, well their plan doesn’t save, it’s the plan that God has that saves. Get them to the cross and they will find their way home. Our mission is to tell others about Jesus.

Sunday night at 6 p.m. Vernon Mullins was in charge of the service, the lesson was on “Serve One Another using much scripture. Next Sunday, June 29 will be God and Country Day at Brownwood. After the morning worship a covered dish meal will be held in the Family Life Center.
