The ladies of the Henning Church of God held their regular monthly meeting Tuesday, Apr. 12, in the church fellowship hall. Carole Spencer presided and Marty Burns led in prayer.
Dyan Hefner presents the devotion, “Stand by Your God,” with scripture reference Psalm 116:2. Also in Galatians 5, we need to walk in the fruits of the spirit. The fruits of the spirit include, love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Everyone is busy. Do you have time to do one more thing? Do you read your Bible and pray? Are you doing what is important? Make time for the most important person in your life which is God. The creator of the universe wants to meet with us daily. We need to have a willing heart and can pray anytime of the day or night. We need to communicate with him and praise God for who he is, thank God for all, confess our faults, pray for family, government, pastor, church offices, missionaries and self. This time is never wasted.
Kim Brookman brought us our missionary education report about Ukraine by Carl Stagner. The Church of God in the United States and Canada has responded with generosity along with the Church of God in Germany. The Church of God in Germany is responsible for distributing the aid to Ukraine which includes shelter, food, water and much more. She also shared about how other countries around the world celebrate Easter.
