The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!

I grew up knowing Tommy and Francis Ann. Tommy’s daddy worked with my daddy at the telephone company. Francis Ann went to my church and played the piano until she got married and moved to Tommy’s church. We ran across them periodically in Amite. It’s hard to believe they are both deceased.

Funeral Thursday at McKneely Funeral Home of Hammond


  • April 5
  • Acts 9: 1-19
  • ” What my friends need most is . . . . “



Pray for people who are trying to decide which church is the best match for them and/or their family.. This can be a difficult choice, but it is always an important choice.


Countries, like people, can go through very trying (and often dangerous) times. Our people seem to be insecure in philosophy and ways. Pray they learn to lean on God.

Scripture for Prayer Meeting tonight – Romans 10: 1-13

Be extra kind to someone today. They can be someone you know or someone you do not know. Show an extra measure of kindness.
