Meeting the Needs Ministry is in dire need of personal hygiene items. Boxes are located in the MBC back foyer for donated items. Our next night to work at Meeting the Needs from 6 to 8 p.m. is Jan. 27.
Bro. Andy’s sermon was entitled “Love” and came from 1 Corinthians 13:1-13. God loves us for who we are and He’s always willing to forgive us. During the children’s sermon, the kids learned that we can talk to God about anything through prayer.
We’ll be holding another Family Game Night starting at 6 pm. Feb. 5. Everyone is welcome to bring board games.

Caney finally got everything cleared so we could meet for services. Seemed almost like a family reunion and we got fed spiritually once again. The choir sang an old favorite hymn, “Blessed Assurance.” Bro. Ed’s message was from Philippians 1:20-24. “Need not be ashamed to be a Christian.” Are we losing why we go to church? Are the social events taking over. Jesus is the way. We seem to be getting out of fellowship in the church. Are we sharing our faith and telling all what Christ has done for us. We should live our life so Christ will be proud.
Bro. John’s sermon was Psalm 119:2, “Blessed are they that keep his testimonies and seek him with the whole heart.”
We, as Christians, who have accepted God should be starving for God’s word. Some claim to know God’s word, but their actions show otherwise.
Special music was performed by Bonnie Woodyard singing “He’ll Roll You Over the Tide;” and Louise Johnson singing “Life’s Railway to Heaven.”

Welcome to everyone who came out to worship with us on a beautiful Lord’s day.
All our love and sympathy to the Lowe family, as the Lord has called Bro. Lowe to his heavenly home. We were so blessed to have known such a good man, who loved the Lord and did great works in his community.
After all the snow we had, it was great to see the sunshine Sunday, and our service was great.
Bro. James spoke about resolutions as you begin a new year. You may be painfully aware that you have failed your Lord in many ways.
Perhaps you were not faithful, perhaps you disobeyed his word to you. Jesus has a wonderful way of restoring us when we fail him. He takes us aside and asks us to reaffirm our love for him. If you truly love him, your service for him in the New Year will be of the quality he desires.
At 6 p.m. Sunday, we’ll have Bible study.
The New Columbus Community 4-H Club will meet at 6:30 p.m. Thursday in our church fellowship hall.
The message Sunday will be citing Matthew 23:8-12 and be titled “Why I Am Not Your ‘Calvinist.’ “
Pastor Brad Vincent will be explaining how Jesus warns us in Matthew 23 about letting anyone claim to be our follower or claiming to follow someone else. Although many people boast about their favorite author or historical figure, we as Christians, have pledged allegiance to one: Jesus Christ.
