Worship this morning was led by Bob Beckman, Emily Cowling, Amanda Groff and Sharon Benedict. Media was run by Melanie Knight. Steve Morgan had the church prayer. He was also the devotion elder, preparing us for the Lord's Supper. Melvin and Judy Cowling greeted folks at the door. John Cowling was in charge of taking Communion to shut-ins. The Elders also ordained Terry Haywood as a new trustee, by the laying on of hands and prayer. Our church led the worship at Meadowood this afternoon, also.
Bob Beckman, preacher extraodinaire, preached from the 18th chapter of Luke today about "When Jesus Comes to Town, He touches the untouchable by Honoring them--the lost, the last and the least."
