Main Preachers for the week:
Monday, May 25th, we enjoyed a beautiful day celebrating Memorial Day with a picnic at the church. Good food and fellowship were enjoyed by all.
Once again, we were blessed!
Our second missions conference has now come and gone,
but the friendships and prayers for these folks are just beginning.
Sunday, May 29, John Sasser, missionary to the Jews, taught Sunday School and presented his work in the afternoon service. Evangelist Jack Patterson preached a timely message entitled "And He Went Forward a Little". We had almost 70 attend our Memorial Day picnic. The weather was beautiful, the food was delicious, and the fellowship was sweet. The best part of the day was when a young man in his 20s repented of his sin and asked Jesus to be his Savior! (Yes, at the picnic!!!!)

Friday night Bro Joe Hicks from Youth and Street Ministries in Detroit presented his remarkable work and Pastor Mark Mahan preached again. Sunday, June 5th, Bother Joe Hicks taught Sunday School, preached the morning worship service and then presented a chalk drawing in the afternoon service.
