After a cloudy, drizzly start to the weekend, members and guests of Vine Street Baptist Church were glad to see the sun come out for a beautiful Sunday of fellowship, singing and learning about God.

The service began with Deacon Wally Jeffries read Psalm 6:6-10, then sang There’s Room at the Cross as a prayer over the those in attendance. Worship Leader Jacob Hatcher encouraged everyone to stand and sing.

  • Jesus Love Me
  • 10,000 Reasons (Bless the Lord)

After a time of fellowship and greeting, Associate Pastor Brandon Saunders gave a few announcements.

  • Today – the start of a sermon series on Malachi
  • Tonight – Jacob Hatcher teaches on 1 Samuel 26 and 27
  • Recognition of Nathan Bates graduating from Indiana University
  • Seth & Emily Carter’s new baby
  • Women’s Bible study continues next week.
  • Pastor Search Committee update

After Saunders said a pastoral prayer, Boyce Bible College student Doug Hanna read a scripture passage, then Hatcher continued the service by leading more songs.

  • Spirit of the Living God
  • Be Thou My Vision

Deacon Gary Cook said a prayer for the offering, then the plates were passed while Hatcher played his guitar.
