Sunday Evening Service

Prelude: The Serenaders played “Precious Lord, Take My Hand” and “Unclouded Day.” Following this, Caleb Copko, Kristi Riler, and Jennifer Worthington sang “Mansion Over the Hilltop,” accompanied by the Serenaders.

Featured testimonies: Norman Hall testified that he is especially thankful for the nearness of God as he battled health concerns during the past six months. Caleb Copko expressed his gratitude that he can take every trouble to the Lord. When his first child was born a month ago, there were health concerns, but the Lord undertook. Verna King told how she prayed as a young person and received salvation, and since then God has always helped her—through school, in the workplace, while raising a family, and now as a senior.

First Special: The choir sang “I Am Blessed Medley.”

Last Special: Barry Morgan sang “Embrace the Cross.”

Sermon: Clark Wolfe took his text from Matthew 19:16-22, speaking of the account of the rich young ruler, and encouraging every person to obtain a testimony of victory.
