We began the service by welcoming the Barnes family into membership at Avondale. we heard the testimonies of Billy, his wife, Karen, and their oldest son, Trip. And being the first Sunday of the month, we observed Communion. When that came around Trip started things by reading from Isaiah 53.
After Communion, we sang the song "Facing A Task Unfinished," which I didn't record, but Pastor asked Carol to give us a little history to that hymn.
As we come to the sermon, Pastor Jerry emphasizes that we do the things we do because of the type of people that we are, and he uses 1 Peter 2 to call out who we are, and who we should be, as Christians.
