5th Sunday Singing was so joyful. Julia Broussard blessed our congregation with an old time Gospel medley. Then the Gideon Quartet kept our toes tapping when they led off with “Step into the Water.” Wendell Gideon, Joe Lane, Dag Pendleton, and Randy Sharp performed several other uplifting songs. Leta Sage accompanied them on the piano and she was wonderful.
What a splendid ministry that folks such as the Gideon Quartet and Julia do to glorify God and their Savior, Jesus Christ. Many thanks for sharing your talent with us.
A large group of ladies started decorating for the vacation Bible school. I’ll let you know how much fun we had next week!
Community Table served 244 meals last week. We are thankful for the volunteers that come by to help. If you have never eaten at Community Table, you are missing tasty food and lots of fun. Many people who come to eat or to help go on to their own churches for Wednesday night services.
We still have several members that are ill and need our prayers.
D.J Klutts served as Worship Leader and read the scripture lesson from John 6:1-21.
At Laurel St. UMC, Rev. Ken Lunsford titled his sermon, “What Can You Offer Jesus?”
This story from John tells about the miracle of the loaves and fish. Jesus took five barley loaves and two fish and fed five thousand people. The people of that region followed Jesus from place to place, they were anxious to hear Him preach and tell parables. They had heard He was healing the lame and the blind.
It was the apostle Andrew, who noticed the young fellow with the loaves of bread and two fish. Children didn’t count for much in those days, and neither did women. Jesus changed all that. Andrew said, “here is a boy” who has something to offer to the Master.
I want all boys and girls to know that they are an important part of our church. They are worth whatever effort we put into supplying them with a first-rate Christian education. Children matter in our lives and they matter to the church.
We are also thankful for our middle-aged and senior adults. Many persons have their most productive years late in life.
Jesus is looking for persons whose influence He can magnify and multiply.
Each one of us, whether young or old can offer ourselves to Christ. We can find that one gift or more that we have, to offer Him and see it through until we see His victory.
