Sunday Morning Service

Prelude: Kristi Riler played a piano solo of “Give Thanks.”

Scripture Reading: Darrel Lee read Psalm 34:1-19.

First Special: Gary played a saxophone solo of “His Eye Is on the Sparrow.”

Testimonies: Brother Gary said when he was growing up he didn’t understand what it meant to be saved from sin, but when he was in his twenties he was invited to church, and eventually he gave his life to the Lord, and God made a real change in his life. Rosie Lambert shared that when she was four years old she told a lie and felt conviction, so she prayed at church and the Lord saved her. He later sanctified and then baptized her with the Holy Ghost, and was faithful to let her know as an adult when she needed to renew her consecrations to Him. Her second daughter was born with terrible health problems and the doctors said she would die, but the Lord healed her.

Middle Special: Sister Rosie and Holly Lambert sang “Close as the Mention of His Name.”

Sermon: Darrel Lee used Habakkuk 3:17-19 for his text, encouraging his listeners to focus on God rather than circumstances or emotions, and stated, “During uncertain times God will strengthen our faith. God will help us to be on higher ground than we were when the trouble began.”

Last Special: Sister Rosie played the piano and sang, “Sometimes it Takes a Mountain.”
