Sunday Evening Service

Prelude: Denise Wilson (pictured above) played “Be Thou My Vision,” on the flute. The choir then sang “Old Fashioned Medley.”

Featured Testimonies: Kristin Lee said the Lord spoke to her heart when she was around eleven years old, and after a children’s church service, He saved her and the following night sanctified her. Phyllis Waddell told how she ran over something with her tire, so pulled into a station to get it fixed, then found the Lord had been watching out for her – there was a wreck down the road and she would have been stuck in the backup for miles. Cindie Baltzell told how the Lord gave her peace when she had to have surgery this summer, and afterward, when the morphine made her too sick to continue taking it, the Lord helped the pain to be minimal. Trina Ruiz shared that she used to fear her parents dying, but she prayed and God took away the fear. Now she is married, and when her husband took a trip, she started feeling that same fear about him, but she prayed and the Lord took away the fear.

First Special: Kristin and Savannah Lee and Ellen Morgan sang “There’s Still Power in the Blood.”

Last Special: Deborah Brenner sang “Refiner’s Fire.”

Sermon: Tom Pricskett read Genesis 39:20, and assured his listeners that even if they are in a difficult situation God is their refuge and strength and they are sheltered in His arms.
