MOUNT ZION FWB CHURCH NEWS
Robert Tyner welcomed everyone to Sunday school. We had 78 with one visitor in attendance. Being the first Sunday in the month, we sang “Happy Birthday” for all those with a birthday this month. Those with anniversaries were also recognized; Jeff and Barbara Morgan, Bryan and Carol Ann Whitford, and Ruddy and Betty Hopkins. Each lucky one was given candy by Lindsay Farmer. “Thank you.” Robert prayed the closing prayer.

Our Sunday school lesson was from Colossians 1. The key verse was “And He is before all things, and by Him all things consist.” What a wonderful truth about Jesus.

Our choir sang “He’s Able” for the call to worship. Pastor Aycock welcomed everyone to worship service and prayed the prayer of invocation. Prayer concerns were shared; the sick, shut-ins, hurting, soldiers, the sorrowful. Sympathy is extended to the Colin Matthews family and the Reggie Cook family.

Robin May was the leader for children’s church. “Thank you.” Hymns of worship were “All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name” and “Dwelling in Beulah Land.” Ushers received the tithes and offerings. Pastor Aycock prayed the offertory prayer. We sang the doxology and greeted one another. Geraldine Nelms, Mozelle Batchelor and myself were all able to be at church today. Praise God!

The choir special was “Home of the Soul.” Rev. Aycock chose verses from II Corinthians 9 and Philippians 3 for his text. He titled his message “Super Bowl Challenge.” Being Super Bowl Day, he made comparisons between being a Super Bowl fan and being a Super Bowl Christian. He asked the question, “What does it take to be a Super Bowl Christian?” He had a five point message. I like point messages. They are easy to write about. Point 1, desire, We must have a desire to run for the goal. 2, discipline is control through obedience and training. 3, determination is to be committed and pressing on.  4, denial, self sacrifice. 5, distinction is making a difference, being Christ-like. These are some of the thoughts I had during the sermon; We were saved to serve, everyone can reach someone, we are not perfect, but God loves us anyway. We have the opportunity to be a super bowl Christian and win the goal (heaven).

Kenneth Parker prayed the benediction. Our hymn of invitation was  “His Way With Thee.”

Have a good and Godly week.

Today was pastor Aycock’s 1st Sunday as pastor. I feel God led he and his wife, Nancy to our church. We are looking forward to working with them in the service of the Lord. If you don’t have a home church, visit us and you’ll get a warm welcome of love.
