We were greatly blessed today as Ben Allen shared God’s Word with us. Using scriptures from Mark and John, he challenged us to answer the question “What do our lives say Christianity is?” We too often fall into the trap of sharing our religion instead of Christ. Sometimes we know all the “churchy answers” but we don’t truly know Christ. It was great to have Helen Allen and Mary Cobb and her family back worshipping with us today.
Flo Parker inspiringly sang, “All on the Altar.” “Til the Storm Passes By” was sung by the choir, led by Barry Winkle. Congratulations to Angie Weddle on her profession of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ! She will be baptized during worship on Sunday, Aug. 28. Bro. Dale’s sermon, “Jailhouse Rock- Part One” from Acts 16 showed us how the jailer’s actions and attitudes changed when he got saved.

You can prevent hay bale or barn fires if you bale hay at appropriate moisture levels and monitor the temperature of recently baled hay.
Generally, hay will begin a heating phase within one to two days after baling. During this time, you should monitor hay to make sure it does not reach temperatures that can damage the hay or lead to spontaneous combustion.

After the Revolutionary War until well into the 19th century, a group of dedicated stalwart men traveled the wilderness of America to spread the Gospel throughout the newly formed republic.
With Bible in pocket and gun in hand, early circuit riding preachers left an indelible mark upon America and the American people; and through their untiring efforts they fanned the flames of religious fervor that spread across the land like a wildfire.
