    We were pleased to have Bro. Steve Miller deliver our morning and evening sermons. He reminded us that we each have an adversary, the Devil. We need to be prepared to overcome. Pray for each other, read God’s word and keep our eyes on the Lord.
    Pray for our sick: Charles and Joyce Lilly, Lucy Jacobs and Marvin Burford.
