Summer is that time of the year when many members and regular attendees are out of town, and those gathered at Vine Street Baptist Church miss their presence. All were prayed for in hopes of a wonderful day in the Lord, wherever they are.
Today’s service began when Deacon Betty Jeffries read Isaiah 61:1-3 and saying a prayer. Worship Leaders Jacob and Jaime Hatcher played their guitars and led the congregation in song.
Time was given to greet one another and welcome guests to today’s service. Senior
- I Stand Amazed in the Presence
- Sweet Hour of Prayer
Pastor Spencer Harmon gave a few announcements, then the ushers collected the offering and everyone continued in singing.
- Lord I Need You
- Not in Me
Associate Pastor Brandon Saunders came to the platform and read today’s sermon scripture and then delivered today’s message.

After the sermon, the congregation stood and sang Not in Me during a time of reflection. Brandon closed the service with an invitation for anyone to speak to a pastor after the service about church membership, becoming a Christian, or to discuss today’s sermon. He read a closing benediction passage, then dismissed the group.
