Churches plan revival, vacation Bible school
Kingdom International Church opened Sunday’s service with prayer and offering. The worship team led in several selections followed by the morning message from Pastor Daniel Moss.
At Christian Fellowship Church, Robert Hall was baptized on May 26. Fusion Youth enjoyed the devotional message from Carlos Bigler on May 26 entitled “Are You Ready?” On Sunday, the congregation received the latest installment in the message series “Doorways to Destiny.” The church will host a revival June 27-30 with speakers Pastor Daniel Parker, Donnie Rabon and Michael Bacon. Stay tuned to this column for service times and more information closer to those dates.
Pastor Eric Packard brought the morning message at Sandy Cross United Methodist Church on Sunday. The church will host vacation Bible school July 16-18. Stay tuned to this column for updates starting the end of June.
Bible verse of the week is Psalm 48:1-2, “Great is Adonai and greatly to be praised, in the city of our God, his holy mountain, beautiful in its elevation, the joy of all the earth, Mount Tziyon, in the far north, the city of the great king.”
The quote of the week is a Jewish proverb: “Talking comes by nature, silence by wisdom.”
Happy summer to students and teachers!
Recipe of the week is one I use with my Crock Pot that’s become a favorite of my family. Spray the inside of a slow cooker with cooking spray. Cut up one whole chicken and place pieces in the slow cooker. Sprinkle liberally with McCormick Grill Mates Brown Sugar Bourbon Marinade Mix (Food Lion has this). Cover and cook on high for 5-6 hours. It is really good served with broccoli and baked potato.
