Prelude: Sungun Yune on the keyboard, with Kristi Riler on the piano, played “There’s Something about that Name” and “Get All Excited.”

Featured Testimonies: Cheryl Downey mentioned that the recent death of her younger brother caused her to reflect that nothing we do here is as important as making it to Heaven. Ade Asaya said she was not raised in a Christian home, but God found her, and since then, He has always been a step ahead, planning her life for her. Myrna Rudolph shared how she contracted COVID in January, and at one point while she was hospitalized, her oxygen level fell to 66%. However, people prayed and God brought her through. She also is thankful that God took care of her uncle who is hard of hearing but was miraculously alerted and able to escape a recent house fire. Al Smith thanked the Lord that in 1978 God saved him, and since then he has had the privilege  of helping in the Lord’s work in many different places.

First Special: Deborah Brenner, Kailyn McKay, and Cheyenna Hall (pictured above) sang “The Gospel Changes Everything.”

Last Special: Sister Cheyenna and Sister Kailyn sang “Your Great Name.”

Sermon: Wayne Butler used 1 Samuel 3:1-13 as his text, addressing the topic of God speaking to mankind. He brought out that God spoke in a variety ways, such as through the prophets, through His Son, and in Brother Wayne’s case, through the waves that threatened to overwhelm his little boat. In Revelation 22:17, God speaks again: “Let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.”
