MOUNT ZION FWB CHURCH NEWS
Robert Tyner reported that we had 71 in Sunday school today. We want to do better than that. Pray for us as we call and knock on doors. Bobby Farmer prayed the dismissal prayer.

Our choir sang “He Did It All For Me” for the call to worship. Pastor Aycock welcomed everyone and prayed the prayer of invocation. Algie Jones Jr. led in the congregational hymns “At The Cross” and “Nothing But The Blood.”

Usher, Tim Bass prayed the offertory prayer. After receiving of tithes and offerings, we sang the doxology and greeted one another. Today was Foreign Mission Day and a special offering was received for that. Brother John Godwin was our Gideon speaker today. He said that the goal of the Gideons is to get the Word to as many people as possible. They work in 194 countries and have bibles in 93 languages. Every dollar given in any way is spent on bibles. The workers and speakers are all volunteers. Praise God for these dedicated men. Brother Godwin shared some special events where their bibles led up to the salvation of men and children. One little boy had found one page of the New Testament and had read it. His first encounter with the Word of God. A Gideon found the young boy outside a store crying. The Gideon asked him his problem. The crying boy said, “I want someone to tell me about this Jesus in this page I have read.” The Gideon went inside the store and found a man crying also. They questioned him about his sorrow. He said, “That boy crying outside is my son. I have never seen him crying like that before. I want someone to help him.” Both father and son were saved that day. Praise God for the power of His Word. “Faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.” (Rom. 10:17) We appreciate the good work the Gideons are doing in getting the Word out. Thank you for sharing.

Our choir special was “Blessed Redeemer.” Algie Jones Jr. also sang a special, “My Tribute.” Our pastor titled his message “Tearing Down the Walls.” He read Ephesians 2:11 - 15. He said we often build walls in the church. These walls limit our visions, our expressions, our creativity, they hinder us from actions with others. God never wanted for us to separate ourselves from others. We are to share and love them. Help in their needs, especially spiritual needs. Jesus has the door open for “whosoever will come.” We don’t need to build walls to keep them out. We need to open our eyes to see the needs of others. People need Jesus. They need the Word of God and they need us to take the Word to them. Let us tear down the walls that hinder the spiritual growth of our church. Our pastor said, “If we don’t become the salt of the earth, we become a pillar of salt.” You cannot sprinkle a pillar of salt, it has to be shaked or sprinkled to spread flavor. “Are we the salt and light of the earth?” The pastor left us with a question; “What is the value of a soul?
