What a blessing it is to see our youth in charge of the morning worship! They did such an awesome job this morning! Congratulations to everyone on their awards and achievements! Minister Loretta Holmes brought the Spoken Word this morning entitled “Extreme Home Makeover: Spiritual Youth Edition” (Mark 2:22 & Romans 12:2). She encouraged us to look into our spiritual mirror and ask ourselves what we see. Do we see someone who is striving to do good, loving their enemies, acting one way on Sunday but another way the rest of the week, being obedient to their parents, teachers, and elders? Do we like what we see? When we ask God to be the lead of our life, we have to be careful not to get stuck in our old practices and structures. If we will abandon the old ‘skins’, we will make room for God to do an extreme makeover in our life. He will build us up anew, Jesus’s blood washes away our sins, and the Holy Spirit will dwell within us and guide us along the way. It’s not too late to get a CD or DVD of either of the services, please contact Bro. Nathaniel Sarratt or one of the Audio/Video team members to get your copy today. If you don’t have a church home, we welcome you to join us next Sunday at 10am to see for yourself what God can do!
