Music Scholarships Awarded: Following the congregational singing, the annual music scholarship awards were announced by Gary Riler, the music director. The recipients received a certificate and $600 to continue their music lessons, with the goal of expanding their musical talents for the Lord's use. The recipients were Hannah Cook, Henry Parker, and Rebecca Luka.
Featured Testimony: Jim White (pictured above) testified how God truly changed his life in spite of never learning about the Lord as child and having a very troubled, sinful life as a teenager. God has been faithful through the years and blessed his life.
First Special: The choir sang “If God Be For Us.”
Last special: Deborah Brenner sang “Gratitude.”
Sermon: Josephine McElveen, the Southern and Eastern United States District Superintendent, took her text from Psalm 42:1, bringing out that just as a deer pants for a water brook, the soul yearns for a place of peace. She explained that the place of peace can be found near to the heart of God.
