Wednesday Evening Service

Prelude: The orchestra strings played “As the Deer” followed by “Great is the Lord.” Then a ladies sextet sang “Send Me.”

Featured Testimonies: Wole Ajayi thanked God for protection in a car accident last October; though the car was totaled, he and his family were unharmed. Chandler Ledford testified that God saved him, and most recently helped him through his senior year of high school, especially with taking tests and making decisions. Kevin Hopkins (pictured above) said although he was raised in the Gospel, he strayed far from it, but he is thankful that the love of God called him back. Natalie Tonning said she grew up without earthly treasures, but was rich in heritage because she had a grandmother who prayed and was a godly example. She followed that example at age twelve and was saved.

First Special: The choir sang “Southern Gospel Medley.”

Last Special: Andy Chasteen sang “Give Me Jesus.”

Sermon: Chris Hewlett, District Superintendent of Canada Work and pastor in Roddickton, Newfoundland, took his text from Psalm 69:13-16 and said that everyone needs to turn to God in repentance now, while there is time, for there is no guarantee of tomorrow.
