Church dawned bright and beautiful.

Head Elder and Youth Coordinator, Dr. Ronnie Hold, made announcements to the church body. After another hymn of praise led by the Choristers, “Give Me the Bible”, Marianna Wynne asked for praises and prayer requests and offered a prayer lifting up these items to our gracious God.

Nicholas Nushtayev asked for the offering and youth ushers Isaac Pitman, Daniel Pitman, Joshua Hold and Elijah Chung took up the morning offering from a full to over-flowing church congregation including
many visitors.

A new opening anthem was introduced by Ashley Hold, vocalist, accompanied by Keila Pitman and
Penny Reynolds on the piano and organ, respectively, “Temple Made of Time”. After Caleb’s Invocation,
“This is My Father’s World” was led by the choristers.

service.

Our praises and thanks to God for the most inspiring Sabbath.
