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.
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.
Bro. Jerry Carmichael of Dugger, IN was our speaker. His topic was The Messiah Revealed to the Jews”. Heb. 12:18-24. We 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.
