March 11, 2018 Morning Worship

Yesterday, the neighborhood surrounding Vine Street Baptist Church was engulfed with people watching and participating in the annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Today, the church was abuzz with people desiring a deeper relationship with God and one another.

Today’s service had member Noah Bates leading the songs. Everyone was thankful for his talent and heart for worship. Senior Pastor Spencer Harmon started the service by reading Psalm 147:1-11 and saying a prayer.  Everyone stood up and sang How Firm a Foundation while Noah led and played the guitar. After a time of fellowship, Spencer continued the service with a few announcements.

  • Statement of Faith Series continues tonight. Even if you have not been to one of the previous sessions, you are encouraged to attend.
  • The Neighborhood Block Party is going to be March 28, 2018.  This is a time for us to get to know the neighbors living nearby.  The church is providing hot dogs and drinks, and members are providing the chip, cookies and other snacks for the event. FMI: Chandler Bainter.
  • A call for additional volunteers to work in the nursery.  Training is scheduled soon.  FMI: Mickie Bainter.

After a pastoral prayer, the ushers collected the offering and Noah continued leading worship.

  • Victory in Jesus
  • Because He Lives
  • Are You Washed in the Blood?
