Wednesday Morning Bible Teaching

Prelude: A young men’s brass ensemble played “Crown Him with Many Crowns” and “Seeking the Lost.” Then Abby Baros, Florin Baros, and Mirela Filimon sang “The Potter’s Hand.”

Featured Testimonies: Mildred Kromah (pictured above) testified that she came to the United States from Liberia in 1981 looking for satisfaction in a college degree, but instead she found satisfaction in Jesus through salvation. Michael Owolabi thanked the Lord the opportunity to serve as a missionary to The Gambia, where we now have a church, and later in Bristol, England, where we now have a group that meets for services. Archiebald Konwaye praised God for many blessings, including a healthy baby girl, born about the time he arrived in the United States for this camp meeting. Blessing Mbang was thankful that God helped her to be a light to those around her when she was working in the Peace Corps in Guinea where there was no church at the time. Jordyn Sletmoe testified that she prayed on Sunday evening to receive relief from anxieties, and God came down and gave her a wonderful peace in her heart.

First Special: Mark and Marble Mfandarahwa sang “Face to Face.”

Last Special: Tobi Nketah sang “It Took a Miracle.”

Sermon: Bob Downey took his text from 1 Peter 1:15-16 and spoke on holiness, saying that when Christians’ beliefs and values are grounded in God’s Word, they will be able to live consistently holy lives.
