Repairs on the Church building are coming along. We are thankful to God for allowing us to have the building repaired. We are looking foward to being in the Sanctuary soon.
We were blessed to ordain Brother Lamar Knight as a Deacon. Please pray that he will always seek God's will in his labors for the Church.
Still Blessed to meet after the storm damage!
January 15, 2017.
We have had two spirit filled days of worship at Providence! On Saturday, we had a wonderful day of singing, praying, and preaching followed by our monthly conference. The recent storm left heavy damage to the roof of the church, the trees around the grounds, an awning, and the sign. We were very thankful for the church members and friends who helped with the clean up. The deacons took care of the details and Campbell Construction was hired to replace the roof. All the repairs are coming to a close and we were blessed to have services as usual this weekend. We also had modifications done to the baptismal pool with the addition of steps, getting ready for Sunday's baptism of Garrett Brooks.
On Sunday, we had an exciting time of worship. The house was full of good singing, praying, and preaching. We were thankful for the presence of Elder John Phillips who is recovering from heart surgery. We were also thankful for Garrett's grandmother, aunt, and other members of his extended family who came to witness his baptism. Elder Todd preached on the subject “The House God is Building” starting with (Psalm 127:1). Other scriptures used were I Kings 5:17-18; 6:7; Proverbs 24:27; Romans 9:23; 2 Corinthians 5:5; 1 Peter 3:5, 9 and several others). The message was that the House eternal in the heavens is built out of vessels of mercy being lively stones making a up a spiritual house. We will not experience that in all its glory until the resurrection. In the meantime God’s chosen people are blessed with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places. When God’s People assemble for worship they are lifted up by the Spirit and New Jerusalem comes down for a season of rejoicing where they get a glimpse of that glory when the see Jesus as He is and can forever praise Him as we ought.
We went to the dining room after the preaching and singing of song #485 where the service continued with the baptism of Brother Garrett Brooks by Elder Walter Todd. It was a joyful day in the Lord!
|Directions: Highway 82 runs East and West connecting Tifton and Albany. Highway 313 intersects Highway 82 in Sylvester. When you turn onto 313, you will be traveling North. After about 10 miles, you will see a sign on the right of the road for the Church. The Church is on the left side of the road. You will not see the building until you turn because it is concealed by a tree lined drive.|| |
