New and familiar faces were seen during today’s gathering of members and guests of Vine Street Baptist Church.
The service began when Deacon Wally Jeffries read 1 Corinthians 1:27-31. After Wally said a prayer, Jacob Hatcher invited everyone to stand and sing together with him and Jaime.
- Hark the Herald Angel Sing
- Angels We Have Heard on High
A time of fellowship and greeting one another was given, then Senior Pastor Spencer Harmon gave some general announcements about the coming weeks. The ushers came forward and collected the offering after Spencer said a pastoral prayer.
The Bainters lit the Advent Candle and read the scripture. The second Advent Candle reflects on Peace, with the scripture this week from Luke 3:4-6. The scripture was read by their son and Mickie lit the candle, then the gathered stood and sang more songs.
- O Come, O Come Emmanuel
- Mighty to Save
