We have been studying the book of Psalms in Sunday school this month. Praise  is a theme in Psalms, so we will begin with our praises; Praise God for our good attendance today in Sunday school. 95 was the big number. I trust everyone learned something from the study of the lesson and hope you will come back again next Sunday. Dot Matthews praises God that her washing machine is replaced. That is a big item for praise. What would we women do without our washer and other appliances? Other praises are some of the sick are better; Donna Matthews’ mother in South Carolina is better. Also Lucille Colston. I praise God for His peace every morning, noon  and night. I have claimed a version of Scripture I learned a long time ago, “Thou wilt keep Him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Thee, because he trusteth in Thee.” Try it.

Thanks to Robin May for being our pianist today in the absence of Sandra Manning. Mozelle Batchelor was at the organ as usual. Thank you for your faithfulness. Music is an important part of worship. Most of the psalms were songs of praise in the Old Testament days. Our hymns are songs of worship.

For the call to worship, our choir sang “I Will Sing of the Mercies”. Other hymns of worship were “Dwelling in Beulah Land” and “In the Garden”.

Pastor Rogerson welcomed everyone and prayed the invocation. Children ages 3-6 were dismissed for children’s church. Their leaders today were Barbara Morgan and Deborah Puckett. Thank you for serving.

Usher, Tim Bass prayed the offertory prayer. We all sang the doxology in praise to God. Our choir special was “Will You Meet Me? Our pastor read Proverbs 17:17 and titled his message “Our Best Friend”. Point one; Our corrupt friends. They do dishonorable things and destructive things and encourage us to do the same. We can do without corrupt friends. Point two; Our good friends are loving, honest with us and helpful to us. They are also loyal friends. Point three; Our closest friend; (Jesus). “A friend loveth at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.” (Proverbs 17:17) “A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly; and there is a Friend that sticketh closer than a brother.” (Proverbs 18:24), “Greater love hath no man than this; that a man lay down His life for His friends.” (John 15:13). Jesus is our best friend. How good a friend are we to Him? Think about it. Jesus made many promises to us and He will not break them. He is true and loyal.
