MOUNT ZION FWB CHURCH NEWS
Robert Tyner welcomed everyone to Sunday School. We had 71 members present and one visitor. Welcome everyone. Most of the absentees have gone to White Lake. Caleb Whitford is home and going to Bryant Aldridge Rehabilitation Center as an outpatient for his therapy. He and his family have gone to Wake Lake for vacation this week.

Barbara Morgan was our pianist for Sunday School. “Thank you.” Darrell Matthews prayed the closing prayer.
Our choir sang “The Windows of Heaven are Open” for the call to worship. Pastor Bogle welcomed everyone to worship service. Algie Jones, Jr. prayed the prayer of invocation. Hymns of worship were “The Church is One Foundation” and “Grace Greater Than Our Sin.” Ami Modlin was the leader in Children’s Church. “Thank you.”
Usher, Greg Manning prayed the offertory prayer. After receiving the tithes and offerings, we sang the doxology in praise to God and greeted one another.

Prayer concerns were shared; for all the shutins, sick, those facing surgery and other health problems, our soldiers, missionaries, nation’s leaders, church leaders and the lost. Bob Watkins prayed for these concerns.
Our choir sang “Wonderful Merciful Savior” for their special. Pastor Bogle read I Samuel 4:1-22 and titled his message “God’s Chosen Man.” At this time, Eli was the priest but was not a good priest. His two sons were ungodly men. God called young Samuel to be his spokesman to the people. Israel went out to battle against the Philistines. The children of Israel had great faith in the art of the covenant. But their faith should have been in God. The Philistines were afraid of the God of Israel because they knew of his great power. They decided to take the ark of the covenant with them to their land. Terrible things came upon the Philistines and they feared the God of Israel. The Philistines began to make plans to send the ark of the covenant back to Israel where it belonged. God desired His people to worship Him and serve Him. They were not to worship the ark of the covenant. It was just a symbol to remind them of their powerful God. The ark was not the glory of God. God wanted his people to see His glory through the eyes of faith and to repent and worship Him only. The pastor asked, “how might this story relate to our nation today? To the church, to families and individuals today?” “How do we get victory in Jesus?” Read the words of the song “Victory in Jesus.” We have victory in Jesus when our hearts are centered on the Lord Jesus Christ.

Have a good and Godly week.
