The first day of Spring, though still a little cool outside, brought many smiling faces to Vine Street Baptist Church today.

The service began with Deacon Joe Gross reading Psalm 95:1-6, then saying saying a prayer.  Co-Worship Leader, Jacob Hatcher, welcomed everyone and encouraged everyone to stand and sing while Co-Worship Leader Jaime Hatcher led in song.

  • O Worship the King
  • Hosanna (Praise is Rising)

A time of fellowship was followed by Associate Pastor Brandon Saunders presenting several announcements:

  • Today – We conclude the 1 Timothy series
  • Tonight – Seth Carter continues the 1 Samuel Series
  • Shape Note Sing/School this afternoon at 2:30pm
  • Easter Sunday is next week.
    • Post cards will be delivered to the neighborhood this afternoon.
    • Pray for people who will come
  • Housekeeping items
  • Pastoral prayer

Boyce student Justin Francis read Hebrews 8:1-7, then the congregation continued singing:

  • What a Friend We Have in Jesus
  • I Have Decided to Follow Jesus

Deacon Mickie Bainter said a prayer for the offering, then the offering plates were passed while the Hatchers played quietly in the background.
