Prelude: A young brass ensemble played “Holy, Holy, Holy” and “Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing.” Then siblings Sam, Susie, and Sarah Asaya sang “The Meeting in the Air.”
Featured Testimonies: John Rael testified that God revealed to him how much He loved him through a testimony given by Don Wolfe when Brother Don was visiting the Los Angeles, California, church. John surrendered his heart and life to the Lord following that service in 1998, and said God has been faithful to him ever since.
Roxie Rael said that even though she was saved at a very young age, as a teenager she turned away from God. Ten years later, she admitted to God she was living as a hypocrite, and the Lord helped her surrender her pride, had mercy on her, and forgave her sins.
First Special: A young ladies' quartet sang “Hallelujah (Your Love Is Amazing).”
Last Special: Savannah Lee sang “He’s Always Been Faithful.”
Sermon: John Baros (pictured below), pastor in Medford, Oregon, used Proverbs 1:7 as his opening text and gave several examples of how the fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge and wisdom.
