SUNDAY AT RIVERS OF JOY BAPTIST CHURCH

Sunday Bible Study: I was going to study Proverbs 14. But on of the members wanted to ask a question. And that question lead to the discussion that took up the whole time. This lesson will be on Video later this week.

Sunday Morning Worship: Great service, and a good time of worship. My message was from Romans 5:1. Charity said it was the best explanation on the security of the believers salvation that she has ever heard. I talked about how we were able to have that security. And how God is a war with the unbeliever. And how the war is over with the Believer. Video of this message will be online.

Sunday Night Worship, Bible Study. Bill was late, so Johnny sung about three songs, (hope to have those on line later). The message was from Philippians 3:12-14.

SIX NECESSARY ELEMENTS IF WE ARE GOING TO EFFECTIVELY PURSUE THE PRIZE OF SPIRITUAL PERFECTION.

Our people seem to love the teaching of God's Word. Last week I taught four lessons that equaled 3 hours of teaching. Goodness.


This week I need to download three messages from Sunday. Each one was about 50 to 60 long. Each video is about 11 minutes long, and it takes about one hour and 30 minutes for each video. So there will be 15 videos for three messages. Goodness.

The outline notes from the messages are also provided.


I noted that the Romans Notes for the first four chapters had 154 pages of notes. Goodness.


Charity and I had Richard and Pauline over for Sunday Lunch.
