Attendance up.... :)
We still didn't have everyone in church, but we had most everyone there and that was a blessing. I would imagine that it would be unusual for any church to have all their members on any one Sunday. Thank you for praying for our attendance.
Our visitor is going to keep coming. She wants to follow the Lord in believer's baptism. Please pray for courage for her. We're excited that God has brought her our way.
We added two members to our church this evening. Lewis and Stacy were baptized last month. They are excited to be a part of our church and we are very thankful for their being a part of our churrch.
I enjoyed preaching a message on, "Trouble Free Living" from John 14. (Currently uploading to Sermon Audio) That text is a blessing. It teaches that you will have trouble in life. But, you don't have to BE TROUBLED in life. Your soul can be floating on still water despite you body being in the storms of life. My heart was encouraged through this text and I believe it was an encouragement to our church as well.
Thank you for praying for our day. God gave us a great meeting.
