There was much rejoicing as the sun, hidden by clouds most of the past week, returned to full view today. More rejoicing came from members and guests of Vine Street Baptist Church who gathered together to learn and worship together.
Today’s service began with Deacon Chandler Bainter reading 1 Corinthians 13 and saying a prayer. Jacob Hatcher, Associate Pastor of Worship, asked everyone to stand and sing, while he, Jaime Hatcher and Nolan Hodge accompanied.
- The Family of God
- O Church Arise
A few minutes was spent in fellowship, where everyone greeted each other with hugs and handshakes, then Associate Pastor Brandon Saunders gave a few announcements.
- Today’s sermon is from 1 John 4
- Next weeks concludes the Birthmarks sermon series
- Youth Super Party is tonight. All are welcome and are encouraged to come as long as they want.
- Vine Street Baptist Church is now on Facebook.
While the offering was being collected, Jacob read Romans 5 and related it to the next song.
- Amazing Love (You Are My King)
- Man of Sorrows
