Friday Evening Service

Prelude: Jaewon Yune (pictured above) played “Follow Me” and “For the Beauty of the Earth” on the violin.

Testimony: Diana Lambert testified that a couple weeks ago she felt she should start seeking for her baptism and drawing closer to God. She knows that He heard her prayer and feels He has been helping her. She knows He hears her every time she prays, and He continues to increase her faith.

First Special: Cheyenna Hall and Kailyn McKay sang “Word of God, Speak.”

Testimony: Sam Cantrell mentioned the anxiety that can come from all that is going on right now, but he appreciates a recent sermon which reminded him to keep his focus on God. He can look back to how God has taken care of him in the past and knows God will continue to do so.

Last Special: Sam Asaya played the piano and sang “Draw Me Closer.”

Sermon: Bob Downey gave the message, using John 21:15-17, and encouraged everyone to deny himself and follow Christ, doing whatever He asks. He assured that doing so will bring God’s blessings.
