Sunday Evening Service

Prelude: Gary Riler (pictured above) played “Were You There?” and “Praise to the Lord” on the saxophone.

Testimony: Natalie Tonning shared that although she did not grow up in a Christian home and her parents divorced when she was young, she learned about the Gospel from her grandmother and was saved at a young age. She is thankful that as she grew older, her church family supported her spiritually in many ways, which helped her to avoid the trouble her family members and peers at school were getting into. She is grateful for all God saved her from and the many blessings He has given.

First Special: Shawn and Jennifer Worthington sang “At Calvary.”

Testimony: Maria Green said that while growing up she always wanted to do what was right, but she was not always successful. As a young adult, her brother began attending the Apostolic Faith church and invited her to come. There, God showed her that even though she tried to be good, she was in fact a sinner and needed to ask for forgiveness. When she did that, God saved her.

Last Special: Victoria Heintz sang “I Have Not Seen, Yet I Believe.”

Sermon: Erik Calhoun used Leviticus 23:1-2, 4-5 for his text, encouraging his listeners with the truth that because Christ rose from the dead, Christians have hope that one day they will rise to be with Him, at the Rapture of the Church.
