WELCOME 

Last Sunday we welcomed Jeff Woodard, a member of the Higher Ground Church of Christ. As always, it was good to have Mina Gonzalez with us again on Sunday. She was here with Valerie Greenwalt. If you are our guest today, we are grateful to have you with us. Let us exalt Him together!

PRAYER CONCERNS

Tiffany Belik requests prayers for her friends, a couple who strongly desire to have children. We pray God’s blessing in the increase of their family, as well as His comfort and peace through their situation and that they can know that God has a plan for them… Prayers are also requested for all affected by the tragic school shooting in Parkland, Florida. May our nation find ways to curb such terrible violence.

ONGOING PRAYER CONCERNS

Please continue in prayer for these loved ones and their various needs:

  • Wendy Robertson, Charlie Taylor, Katrina Gallo, Karauna & Harriett Taito, Karl Simms, Charles Davenport, Deby Mahoney, Carah Barnes, Jesse Brown, Barb Plucheck, Faye Young, Delphine Lous, André Kidd, James Harris, Pat McCleary’s family, Betty Fox, and Joan Wilkes.
  • Our loved ones in the armed forces and law enforcement and their families: Paul Germany, Anthony Patterson, and Lawrence Hilton.

LEADERS’ MEETING

The February Leader’s Meeting will be this afternoon in the fellowship room, immediately following our morning worship assembly. Attendees are welcome to bring their lunch. The meeting is open to all members, or you can let one of the leaders know if you have a topic that you would like to have discussed. Please pray for the work of the Lord here at South Fulton Street.

BEING PERFECT

The latest issue of The Christian Appeal examines the theme, “Be Perfect.” This very important command of Jesus is found in Matthew 5:48. How can we be perfect as God is perfect? It sounds impossible, yet David Langford and Curtis Shelburne provide some very thoughtful, encouraging exhortations on how we can experience great spiritual blessings from pursuing perfection. Your free copy of this magazine is on the table.

CRF SPONSORED CHILD’S LETTER

Posted on the bulletin board is a letter and a picture drawn by Felix Sanchez, one of the two children we sponsor in Nicaragua through Christian Relief Fund. One of the things he says is, “My family and I are grateful to have angels on earth because you are like our angels.” He also shared a Bible verse he likes: “Casting all your care upon him; for he cares for you” (1 Peter 5:7). He would love to get a personal note from us, so if anyone would like to write him, that would be a great volunteer opportunity.

THIS MORNING’S TEACHING

What is required for us to continually remain in close fellowship with our Heavenly Father? It is not automatic. This morning we will look at the subject, “Making Time for God.” The subject of the 2:00 PM study will be “Discover the Daily Rhythms of the Daily Office and Sabbath: Stopping to Breathe the Air of Eternity.”

WEDNESDAY NIGHT STUDY

The first century Christians at the Greek metropolis of Corinth struggled with major problems in the church. The Apostle Paul addresses their issues in the New Testament letter we know as First Corinthians. We will have an overview and a time of discussion about this book on Wednesday night.

CONDOLENCES

An aunt of Stefania Eskridge and Becky Ford passed away recently. She was a younger sister of their mother.  Caroll Kaniaru’s close friend, Tammy Bolden, passed away unexpectedly last week. Tammy had attended our services several times and joined in the ladies’ activities. She leaves behind several grieving children.

ONGOING PRAYER CONCERNS

RICHARD JONES PETITION

Richard “Rikky” Jones, a former member of this congregation, was given a 48-year sentence for cutting off an ankle bracelet while on parole. He has been incarcerated for 10 years of this sentence and is now seeking clemency from the governor. If you believe his time already served is sufficient punishment for this crime, you can sign the petition on the table by the bulletin board. Robert Lee is glad to answer any questions. Today is the last day to sign the petition.

THIS MORNING’S TEACHING

This morning’s lesson focuses on how Jesus turned the grief resulting from the death of Lazarus into joy by raising his good friend from the dead.

At our 2:00 gathering, we will watch a video and share on the important subject, “Enlarge Your Soul through Grief and Loss: Surrendering to Your Limits.”

WEDNESDAY NIGHT STUDY

The book of Romans is probably the most complete examination of the gospel found in the New Testament letters. This week we will complete its overview by looking at chapters 5-16, which tell how the gospel creates a new humanity, fulfilling promises to Israel and bringing unity to God’s universal church.
