Sunday Evening Service

Prelude: Flautist Denise Wilson played “How Can I Keep from Singing?” and “Be Thou My Vision,” accompanied by Kristi Riler on the piano.

Scripture Reading: Dave Lambert read Psalm 1:1-6.

Special: Dan, Darla, and Cheyenna Hall (pictured above) sang “Saved By Grace.”

Testimony: Dan Hall testified that when in his twenties, he had become too focused on work instead of the Gospel, but God was faithful to call him back and save him again. He mentioned that as a healthcare worker, he is on the frontline of the current virus situation, so he sees many people who are fearful. However, he has peace in his heart, knowing God is in control.

Special: David and Victoria Heintz sang “The Healer Is Here.”

Testimony: Victoria Heintz thanked God for saving her when she was in the first grade, and was also thankful that during times of confusion, she can take all of her questions to God and receive clear answers. There was a time when she was unsure of her sanctification, but she put the matter before God in prayer, and He removed all doubt.

Special: Deborah Brenner sang “Wherever You Are.”

Sermon: Erik Calhoun read Isaiah 41:10 for his text, which begins, “Fear thou not; for I am with thee . . .” He encouraged his listeners to look beyond their circumstances to God, assuring them that they will see that He is in control and will find peace in this time of uncertainty.

Special: Cheyenna Hall sang “Your Ways Are Higher than Mine.”
