The LORD is my strength and my defense ;

he has become my salvation.

“A Night of Joy”

Last night certainly could be described that way. The Lord’s House was full of young people and many “not so young” people. There was a band, a comedian, and an evangelist to lead the meeting. All did a great job. This old heart was so blessed to see all the young folks in the Lord’s House. If you missed it, the live broadcast can be seen on the FBC, Kentwood Facebook page. I hope you will check it our today.


Morgan Schockley‘s funeral will be Saturday at FBC, Kentwood. The obituary is not yet available. Please pray for her family and friends. I will post the obituary when it becomes available, so check back for more information..
