Sunday Evening Service

Prelude: The orchestra played “My Jesus, I Love Thee” and “Power in the Blood.” Caleb and Moriah Copko then sang “My Redeemer Lives.”

Featured Testimonies: Catey Hinkle said when her passport was stolen last year in Europe, at first she felt like she had lost the one thing a traveler must never lose. Then she realized that was not correct – she still had her salvation and God, which are much more important. Trina Ruiz (pictured above) remembered when she was going to give a speech for her high school graduation and her first draft was censored because it mentioned God. She wanted her words to count for Christ, and upon praying about it, the Lord helped her find a quote from Abraham Lincoln that talked about God yet passed the school's censorship. Rob Moen shared how the Lord saved him at youth camp in 1990 and took his loneliness away instantly.

First Special: The choir sang “Glorious City of God,” with orchestral accompaniment.

Last Special: Ashley Morgan sang “Master of the Wind.”

Sermon: Reading from Luke 8:26-28, Clark Wolfe used the account of the demoniac as an example of what happens when a person has an encounter with Jesus: he found peace and rest, his demeanor was transformed, and his appearance changed.
