Mothers were honored on their special day at our church: Mother Vera Green was crowned as Mother of the Year, and oldest church mother.
Sister Charlotte Green was installed as a junior church mother.
All mothers were presented with a rose of their liking. It was a blessed day for everyone.
Visitors for Mother’s Day were Callie, Elder Enda Gavin, Wanda, Windy Beard, Warn Parschell, Pastor Steve Jackson, Elder Andrew Morris, Mother Doris Rosier, Deaconess Loretta Dialty, and other family and friends.
On Sunday, we will focus on Pentecost Sunday, recounting the coming of the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost in Acts 1-2. In doing so will encourage Christian to realize baptism in the Holy Spirit is still available to all followers of Christ. And it also reminds believers in Christ that baptism in the spirit is important for public witness of Jesus Christ.
The baptism in the spirit results in changed lives, lives that are becoming more consistent with the life of Jesus, who lived in the power of the spirit.
The promise is unto you and to your children and all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.
To talk to some Christians about witnessing is to stir up feelings of fear and doubt. If all we have to go on is our own ability and effort and understanding, then we have every reason to be fearful and doubt ourselves.
Jesus promised his disciples that we would be given the Holy Spirit to be effective witnesses of Christ, there is no need to fear.
On the day of Pentecost, those who were filled with God’s spirit spoke in unknown languages as the spirit enabled them. This was one of the signs that these Christian followers had been changed. We have the visible signs that we have been filled with the Holy Spirit – these signs are evidence of a changed life, one that is appealing to others who are without Christ.
On this week, encourage one another to be filled with and rely on the power of the spirit to be witnesses of Christ.
Our prayers and concern goes out to all the sick and shut-in, those in hospitals, nursing homes, prison, the homeless, those in need of help everywhere. Let us pray for each other.
