This Sunday is Daylight Savings Time so prepare to turn those clocks forward an hour.
We have Ash Wednesday to start the Lenten Season and Juanita Duncan has a good idea to celebrate Lent. Leta Sage calls it the Duncan Challenge! The congregation has been challenged to commit random acts of kindness whenever and wherever they can. We have a fun bulletin board to stick little cutouts with our kind acts written on them.
The local schools will take Spring Break all next week. So, look out for the kiddos in your neighborhood.
Pat Outlaw has a birthday today and Jaxson Salinas had one last Friday. Lee and Betty Lusk celebrated their anniversary last Sunday.
Laura Leatherwood announced that she and Jimmy’s oldest grandchild just became a teenager. Aly is a sweet, pretty, young lady and will continue to be a joy.
Lisa Leatherwood served as Worship Leader and she read the scripture lesson from Luke 9:28-43. Lisa also gave testimony to how much better, and healthier she feels, she praised God and the prayers offered for her well-being.
Then I told everyone I was feeling better and all the tests I’ve recently taken for my heart showed mild complications. And I deeply appreciate all the concern shown for me. The Lord continues to bless me.
Our newest member, Julia Broussard, sang “In the Garden” and it was beautiful, during the serving of Communion.
Cole Moore performed the acolyte duties.
Rev. Ken Lunsford preached on experiencing the mountaintop, but to remember the valley below.
Many of us have had those happy moments when we felt everything was going right in our life. Or we felt close to God, it may have been your wedding, the birth of a child, or a moving, spiritual, occurrence at church. These events connect us with the mystery of creation and eternity.
Jesus’ transfiguration on the mountain was a glorious event. Luke says the appearance of Jesus’ face changed, and His clothes flashed like lightning. Moses and Elijah were there talking with Jesus, then they disappeared. After God said that Jesus was His son and to Listen to Him! Peter, John, and James were there and witnessed these things.
The next day, Jesus and His companions came down from the mountain and went back to the daily routine of teaching, preaching, and caring for the broken and hurting people of their world. Back to the reality of life in the valley.
We believe God’s infinite love is available to all,
