Greetings from the forest!!
It is hard to believe, but our Share-a-month has come to an end, and the Christmas program is just around the corner.
We love to spend the entire month of November in Thanksgiving. The first Sunday was our Share-a-Melody Sunday. We sang the congregation's favorite songs, and had an instrumental special that consisted of two hammered dulcimers, two guitar players, and a bass player. We also had a ladies duet. The Lord told us to speak to ourselves in Psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in our hearts to the Lord. The next week was Share-a-Missionary Sunday. We had the Murray family from North Carolina come and present their burden to go to Bolivia. They were with us for all services. Brother Robert Murray shared a power point presentation during Sunday School, and he preached in the evening service. There are millions of people in that small area that need the Lord. We thank the Lord for all who go to the world to tell the greatest news on the planet - The Gospel of Jesus Christ.
We have had so many of our precious church family go home to be with the Lord over the past couple of years. This past year we had several within a few days of each other.
The Media tab on the church website has three selections: Teaching Timeless Truths (our church's radio broadcast on WGCR), Message Series, and Daily Devotional (A five minute devotional based on a theme). There is also a link to the Good old Gospel Song broadcast (which is a 30 minute southern Gospel music program that airs on WGCR).
