Saturday Correction

I’m not a good oral listener. This has been proven once again.

This morning, I wrote that the joint service with Line Creek is scheduled for tomorrow night. Thankfully, one of my Line Creek friends corrected me. The service is a week away on November 7th. Regular services will be held at FBC, Kentwood and Line Creek tomorrow night.

I can get thing straight better when I see it in print. Since we have not attended church in person in a long time, we have not read the church bulletins. I apologize for my mistake. Thankfully, a friend corrected me in time.
