SUNDAY NIGHT SERVICES /
A NEW FORMAT!
join us on Sunday nights for worship during the New Year. With a
desire to encourage young families with young children to
attend, we are changing the format of the Sunday evening
services, as follows:
We will limit the service to one hour. [6:00 PM to 7:00 PM.]
Excellent nursery care will be provided!
Teaching on OT Bible characters will be provided for children
less than 12 years of age.
During the hour we will enjoy a time of brief prayer, a few
worship songs, and a forty-five minute lesson which will
emphasize open discussion among the congregation.
Details of our first study in the New Year will be provided
On Sunday night, January 18th, Jenny and Miguel will
be providing a report on their ministry to the Haitian refugees
living in the Dominican Republic. Praise God that after much
perseverance Miguel now has been granted a residence visa. This
evening we will learn how we might better pray for and encourage
the Morel’s in their ministry. NOTE: This meeting will
likely go from 6 to 7 PM.
Blain is still passionately pleading for the Community Church to
join our prayer services on Sunday at 9:00 AM and on Wednesday
at 7:00 PM. But let’s face it, corporate prayer during these
times is not a priority for our Church family – at least not
yet. It is difficult with children who need to get to bed,
heavy work loads for husbands, and commuting difficulties for a
few families traveling long distances to our Church.
Wednesday nights is at an all time low. Blain is switching the
Wednesday night format to end promptly at 8:00
PM so that people can head home especially if they need
young children to bed. Blain also would love to arrange for
nursery care if it is needed.
Only a small
percentage of the congregation attends the Sunday A.M. services.
Blain would love to provide nursery care in the AM. In
addition, Sherrie meets each Sunday at 9:00 with those who are
too young to be a part of Bill Shelly’s youth ministry. The
young ones are given a Bible lesson by Sherrie who spends time
with our young ones praying specifically for them, our Church,
missionaries and other needs around the world. Sherrie says,
“You would be amazed to hear the prayers of these young ones.”
Future prayer warriors are being trained for the Lord.
Blain will be
okay. He certainly does not want people coming to please a
sinner like he is. He is thankful for the corporate prayer that
is part of our Sunday, A.M. Worship services. Blain realizes
that there are many godly saints in our Church family. He loves
and respects them. He knows that they are praying either
families. He is very grateful for this prayer!
But He still is
strongly convinced that congregational prayer is the direct
link to a great revival especially in our
