A FAMILY REJOICING – Pictured (from left) the Evans Family, Anita, Amanda and Don, with Alexus standing in front of her mother. Our gathering at Pape Christian Church was especially joyful Sunday because of the Baptism of Alexus. Her grandfather, Don Evans, assisted Brother Dennis in her Baptism and then he served Alexus her first Communion.
Several of our brothers and sisters in Christ were named for special prayer – Connie Abbott, Gary Hubbard, Larry and Eva Hadsall, La Verne Motley, Erma Lee Davis, Rhonda Todd, J.R. Mills Jr., and Pastor Dennis Wallen, also, all of those who are traveling for spring break and other reasons.
After Sunday School, we celebrated birthdays for both Jason and Wendell Burchett and we sang, “Happy Birthday” for them.
Our Call to Worship was Matthew 24:44. Brother Dennis titled his message, “Making Plans with God.” He used several Scriptures which show how we need to rely on God and invite Him into our lives and allow Him to direct our plans to follow His plans for each of us. Scripture references include Psalm 34:1, Matthew 11:28-30, Proverbs 3:5-6, Luke 9:26, Psalm 100:1-5, John 14:6 and so many more.
Some of our upcoming events include our Youth Meeting at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, March 27, Pape Church spring building and grounds cleaning day on Saturday, April 6th, Good Friday Service at 5:30 p.m. on Friday, April 19, and Prayer Meeting and Fellowship at 5:30 p.m. each Wednesday evening.
