Sunday, call to worship was “Only Believe” by the choir at Hitesburg Baptist Church. The Reverend Mike Riley read the announcements and welcomed everyone.

Hymn was “My Faith Looks Up to Thee.” There was no children’s sermon because the children were meeting in Mission Friends and Kids in Action. Prayer time ended with a prayer from the Deacon of the Week, Johnny Szynklewski. Hymn was “I’d Rather Have Jesus.” Choir special was “Consider the Lillies.” Everyone fellowshipped with one another while Deborah Pulliam, pianist/organist, played a couple of verses. The Rev. Riley brought the sermon entitled “Five Steps to

Financial Freedom-Part 2.” Scripture came from Matthew 6:33, 2 Corinthians 9:6-7, Proverbs 6:6-8, 1 Timothy 6:17-18, Genesis 13, Acts 4, John 6, Galatians 6:9, Psalms 62:10, Psalms 24:1 and Hebrews 12:11. Hymn was “Without Him.”
