Tuesday Evening Service

Prelude: Josh Friesen played “Fill My Cup, Lord,” and “Glory to His Name,” on the trumpet.

Featured testimonies: Jim Snider shared how the Lord saved him when he was twenty-one, and delivered him from drugs, alcohol, and a rock-and-roll lifestyle. Kristi Riler spoke of a situation that had come up suddenly that day and was scary, but she asked people to pray, and as she waited at her appointment, she felt the peace of God in an amazing way. Joseph Buliga testified that he started high school as a freshman with a negative attitude, but the Lord convicted him and saved him at youth camp, and then this past Sunday he was sanctified. Hunter Cripps told how two years ago at a Youth Challenge he determined to dig in and be serious about the Gospel. He said he knows the Gospel is simple but deep, and there is so much to learn that he is never going to get bored with it. Becky Lepisto was thankful that in January of 1966, at a time when many were looking for peace and love, she looked to the Cross and prayed, and the Lord came into her heart.

First Special: The choir sang “At Calvary.”

Last Special: Sophie Sobol sang “What a Beautiful Name.”

Sermon: Roth Mom preached from John 20:27-29 and stated, “What you believe in tonight will affect how you will live tomorrow and the rest of your life. It will decide where you will end up when Jesus comes back.”
