Sunday, which was Souper Bowl Sunday, call to worship was “Sweet Hour of Prayer” by the choir at Hitesburg Baptist Church. The Reverend Mike Riley read the announcements and welcomed everyone. Hymn was “What a Friend We Have in Jesus.” Children’s sermon, which was lead by Sharon Kensey, was concerning things/events that can happen. She showed the children a Pez dispenser and asked them “Do you know what this is?.” One or two guessed. She told them to hold it real tight and ask for whatever they wanted. Of course, their wishes weren’t granted. Sharon spoke of Solomon asking for an understanding heart, God saying yes and how He gave him money, wealth and honor. Sharon told the children that we all should ask for help, healing, blessings on family and friends, etc. Prayer time ended with a prayer from the Deacon of the Week, Ronnie Pulliam. Hymn was “I Must Tell Jesus.” The choir special was “How Long Has It Been.” Everyone fellowshipped with one another while Deborah Pulliam, pianist/organist, played a couple of verses. The Rev. Riley brought the sermon entitiled “Questions of God-Series #3-What Shall I Give You?.” Scripture came from 1 Kings 3:5(4-14), 1 Kings 10:6-10, James 1:5, Ephesians 3:20 James 4:2, 1 Kings 3:16-28, James 3:17 and Ephesians 5:15-21.
