Our Brotherhood Breakfast scheduled for February 1 has been postponed to a later date. We will announce a date soon.
Brother Paul Cannon’s morning message was from 1 Samuel, chapter 7. The people of Israel had allowed God’s presence to leave them because they turned from God. Because of that, they suffered many trials and tribulations, until they finally asked God to return His presence among them. Today, we tend to put other things ahead of God, and in turn His presence is removed from us. When we face trials, we need God’s presence among us to lead, guide, and comfort us. Don’t let other things come between you and God, and let His presence be with you.
The evening message was from Luke, chapter 22. Jesus told Peter that Satan wished to sift him like wheat. Everyone who wishes to serve God and live their lives according to His will is a target for Satan’s sifting. God puts people in our lives to help us when we fall, just as He did for Peter. We must recognize when Satan tries to trip us up, and look to Jesus to keep us from falling.
Please pray for: Joel Snyder, Bobby Elkins, Janice Chambers, Meredith Smith, Janice Payne, our church, and its members.
