Hitesburg News for July 10, 2014 / July 10, 2014

Sunday, call to worship was “The King is Coming” by the choir at

Hitesburg Baptist Church. The Reverend Mike Riley read the announcements and welcomed everyone. Hymn was “I’ll Fly Away.” The baptismal service for Briana Riley took place. Children’s sermon, which was by David Riley, was concerning not passing up on/wasting opportunities. Mr. Riley showed them a piece of candy and asked them what it was. They answered. He then opened it and threw it in the trash can in front of him. He spoke of Judas and how he wasted opportunities that Jesus had given him. David stated that we shouldn’t ever waste any good opportunities that the good Lord sends our way. The children collected loose change from throughout the congregation for the June Loose Change project which will go toward the local food bank. Prayer time ended with a prayer from the Deacon of the Week, James Hart. Hymn was “He Leadeth Me.” Choir special was “What a Day That Will Be.” Everyone fellowshipped with one another while Delores Hamlett, pianist/organist, played a couple of verses. The Rev. Riley brought the sermon entitled “The Tragedy of a Wasted Life.” Scripture came from Matthew 26:24, 27:3-5; John 6:70-71, 12:1-6; John 10:10, 2 Peter 3:9, Luke 22:1-6, Psalm 90:12 and Matthew 26:14-16.
