As the city recovers from three weeks of festivities and gatherings, members and guests came together to worship the Lord and learn from scripture.
The service began with Deacon Joe Gross reading Psalm 100 and saying a prayer. Worship Leader Jacob Hatcher grabbed his banjo, and fellow Worship Leader Jaime Hatcher with her guitar, led the gathered in songs:
- Peace Like a River
- We Will Feast in the House of Zion
Everyone spent some time greeting one another, then Associate Pastor Brandon Saunders presented some general announcements. He spoke of some pastoral concerns and said a prayer.
While the ushers were gathering the offering, member Mickie Bainter sang Clean as a special selection, then the congregation sang Before the Throne of God Above while Jaime led from the piano. Brandon returned to the platform to read today’s sermon text, then Senior Pastor Spencer Harmon delivered the message.

After the sermon, the congregation stood and sang How Great is Our God. To close the service, Spencer called Roger and Nancy Morris up front to send them off with a prayer as they move to another community and church.
