Sabbath, March 15, 2014

Sabbath was a lovely spring day, and we were glad to have so many join us for Sabbath Services.

Following prayer and a joint song service, the adults and youth separated for their studies. The adults continued their study on the Day of Atonement and the sanctuary, led by Brother Mike Brown, following a devotional by Sister Dorthy McCrillis, who was visiting from Tennessee along with her husband, Terry, and Brother Ron Toel.

Brother Ron Toel shared a nature lesson on acacia trees, daddy-longlegs, and the African bee-eater for the youth. A science demonstration  was given using the solvent acetone. The lesson taught was that the five senses (taste, touch, sight, hearing, and sense of smell) are avenues of the soul and must be carefully guarded. The main lesson focused on the division on the kingdom following the death of Solomon and on the “folly” from which Solomon could not turn. You may see the slide presentations for the youth Sabbath School here.

Here is another promise for parents, found in Psalm 102:28: “The children of thy servants shall continue, and their seed shall be established before thee.”

Announcement: Youth Sabbath School is now beginning at 9:35 a.m. EDT (instead of 9:40) and will close at 10:40 a.m. (instead of 10:45), to allow adequate time to set up for live streaming of the church service.

Our Worship Hour began with prayer and an opening hymn. Following prayer requests, Brother Leon Holt led the congregation in prayer, and then Pastor Allen Stump shared a message on watchfulness based on Luke 21:34-36. You may hear this message here and see the slides that accompanied the sermon here.

We invite you to join our online and telephone conference services each week--Sabbath Song Service at 9:15 am EDT Sabbath morning, Youth Sabbath School at 9:35 a.m. EDT Sabbath morning, Worship Service at 11:00 a.m. EDT Sabbath Morning, Story Hour at 7:00 p.m. EDT Monday, and Prayer Meeting at 7:00 p.m. EDT Wednesday. You can access the services listed above by using the following link: or you may call 619-326-2730 and enter conference room #755896 when prompted.

May God richly bless you until we meet again.
