Fathers’ Day 2016 brought many families to Vine Street Baptist Church all eager to learn from the Bible and to worship God, the ultimate Father.
The service opened with Deacon Donnie Aebersold reading Psalm 10:12-18 and saying a prayer. Guest Worship Leaders Kristopher and Emily Burns lead the gathered in singing some familiar songs with somewhat new music, which everyone enjoyed:
- All Hail the Power of Jesus Name
- Crown Him With Many Crowns
Associate Pastor Brandon Saunders greeted the congregation and thanked the Burns’ for filling in while the Hatcher’s are preparing for the arrival of their second son. Saunders recognized the fathers in attendance today, and two young volunteers passed out chocolate bars that said “Million Dollar Dad” on them.
A time of fellowship was held, giving opportunity to meet new faces, and offer hand shakes and hugs. Saunders then gave a few announcements about actives of the church today and this week, then said a pastoral prayer. Church member Nathan Bates read Philippians 4:10-20, then the Burns’ led a few more songs:
- Come Thou Fount
- Jesus Paid it All
Deacon Gary Cook said a prayer for the offering, then the deacons passed the plates while Kristopher played his guitar quietly in the background.
