Two of our youth sang a beautiful special Sunday morning. It was wonderful to see the youth willingly participate in the church. The sermon was appropriate for this coming week and was centered around freedom.
Sunday’s services began under a beautiful, sunny sky. After singing “Blessed Assurance,” Josephine Rost led in prayer. Some of those mentioned on the prayer list included Richard Cook, Michelle Yeager, Nancy McGehee, Gloria Cologna, Patsy Lummis, Matt Clift, Dwaine Becker, church camp and th…
We opened our Sunday services with “Today is the Day.” Psalm 77 was the responsive reading. The morning scripture was Galatians 5:1 and 13-25 and Luke 9:51-62, and the title of Brother Wally’s message was “Called to Follow the Spirit.”
Independence Day is a time to remember our freedom and thank God. We stand united in thanking all military men and women who served to give us this precious gift of freedom. In honor we give thanks to our forefathers for seeing the importance of making America a godly place to live.
Missing someone is your heart’s way of reminding you that you love them. We said our good-byes to Pastor Amy. We had a great fellowship dinner and were glad to have some from the Conway church join us also for dinner. We wish her well in her new churches she will be going too in St. James.
Happy Independence Day! How do you find the Church of the Bible? How do you know if your church is the Church of the Bible? How can church leaders help their church be the Church of the Bible?

What a day Sunday was! First, a torrent of rain tempted us to just curl up with a good book, but church bells beckoned and we gathered to fellowship and to praise God with friends and neighbors.
Return home and tell the story of what God has done for you — Luke 8:39. We had combined services in Conway this week. There were 11 from St. Mark’s that attended services and stayed and enjoyed fellowship dinner with them. Ember’s sister Cheryl and husband from Texas were visiting. We sang …
On this rainy Sunday morning scripture was read out of Mark 8:34-38. “Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel’s, the same shall save i…
