SUNDAY (March 4th) UPDATES:
MORNING WORSHIP SERVICE: The church served breakfast to all from both the church and community who were in need before the morning service. Then, Pastor Toby preached from Lamentations 3:19-24 about the glorious hope of Jesus in light of the tragedy and disaster our community is facing. He reminded the church and visitors that we all need the gospel more than we need food, and prayed God would do a work that will blow the minds of people for generations to come. He reminded the church that God’s love (even when people might question) is demonstrated in sending his Son to endure death, and the wrath for sin. He charged all to believe and trust in God’s love.
THANK YOU: Thank you to the many church members, community friends and local church (Kentucky and Indiana) for your generosity with time, energy, supplies, advice, and prayers. Thank you to Southern Seminary for supplying us with meals, heat, lights, generators, and workers.
