Thanks for Your Prayers and Concern.

I (Larry Miles)  want to  tahnk  my  family of faith at Cherry Street for praying  for  my  aunt, Laverne Collins. She   is  doing  real good in her  re-hab   at home after spending  100 days  in the Nursing Home (she came  home on Oct. 18th)  I am   starting back to work  today (12/30/09).  It is part-time at the  present; 22.5 hrs a week, Mon-Fri 4:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.   Please pray that more  hours will be  added.

Please  keep me and  my  aunt in your prayers.  She appreciates  all the love  you all have  shown  her  at Cherry Street.

Bible Reading Plan for 2010

It was  suggested to me this  morning by Bro. John Miller  that  starting this Friday, January 1, 2010  that  I start sending  our via e-mail a  Bible  Reading Schedule.  I would like to  have a  plan where by reading a portion of Scripure each day from  both  the Old and New Testament  that  one   will read the Bible  through in  1  year’s  time. 

I have  not  decided  whether to send out the reading each day or  send out an  e-mail once a  week with the  reading.  Also, not sure whether  to include the  text of the  reading  in the  e-mail or just have a link to an on-line  Bible.  The latter may be a  good  option because  there are  some  that have the  audio along  with the text.  

Either  way I will put the week’s  reading in the    weekly  bulletin.  Since we are  starting  on a   Friday (Jan. 1) there will be  2  days of reading before    the  schedule  appears in the  “Messenger.”

 II Timothy 3:16-18  tell us the  importance of the Word of God in the  life of the  Christian and tell us  that  God’s Word is  inspired. So, let’s  commit  ourselves  to read and study God’s Word on a   regular  basis.

Dec. 27, 2009 Sermon

Bro.  Jerry Carmichael of Dugger, IN  was  our  speaker. His  topic was The Messiah Revealed to the Jews”. Heb. 12:18-24We had  hoped to have  the message recorded in Mp3 formaat but   our recorder was   not  working  properly.  We  have  asked Bro. Jerry to provide his  sermon   outline or  notes  for the  web site. So please be on the  lookout for  those. 

Bro. Jerry  took us thought a    survey  of the  Book of Hebrews this  morning, showing  how  much  better the  New Covenant  is than the Old Covenant.
