Choice Stephens and Rick Collett took up the offering. We sang “Surely Goodness” and “Since Jesus Came Into My Heart” with Suzanne Carpenter playing the grand piano.
Bro. Bill Black’s sermon was from Romans 3:9-20 and 23. Can God use ordinary people in his work? Look in the Bible. Abraham was a liar, Moses a murderer and David committed adultery. Yet God used them in a mighty way. God restores the broken and the brittle and supplies what is missing. There will be no perfection in this life. Paul was stoned, snake bitten and ship wrecked but he counted it as nothing compared to God’s grace. Be available when God calls you.
