God is GREAT! We had a wonderful Homecoming Service yesterday at Cherry Street Church of Christ in New Albany,, IN. Bro. Bennie Hill, preacher at Cramer & Hanover Church in Lexington, KY was our guest speaker. Bro. Bennie grew up in this congregation. He spoke on the topic “What The Chruch Has Done For Me.”
His points were:
- The Church provided a way for him to hear about Jesus.
- The Church taught and preached the Whole Counsel of God.
- The Church provided a way for him to repsond to the Gospel.
- The Church provided a way for him to grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus.
- The Church instilled in him the Hope of the 2nd Coming of the Lord Jesus.
We had 78 in Sunday School; and 137 in Morning Worship. There were many guests in attendance, most having some ties to Cherry Street. Also, there were guests from AL and TN who were passing through the area. We had a wonderful time of food and fellowship afterwards; perhaps a fortaste of eternity.
