Sunday Evening Ordinance Service

Prelude: Janice Calhoun played a piano solo of “The Old Rugged Cross,” “Calvary’s Stream Is Flowing,” and “Oh, How He Loves You and Me.” The choir then sang “I Plead the Blood.”

Special: Butch Carey sang “Jesus Is Precious to Me.”

Lord's Supper Sermon: John Musgrave read from 1 Corinthians 11:23-31, which is the Apostle Paul’s historical account of the Lord’s Supper, where Jesus gave His followers an example to follow. Brother John said verse 26 gives the purpose for this ordinance: “For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord's death till he come.” Following his message, the ministers served the emblems to the congregation.

Foot Washing Sermon: Bob Downey used John 13:1-17 for his text, saying that on the night Jesus was to be crucified, He gave important instructions to His disciples as He humbly washed their feet: “If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another's feet.” Following the message, the congregation split into the men's quarters (pictured above) and the ladies' quarters to wash each other's feet.
