Harmony Baptist Association Share Report

Compiled by retired pastor Bobby Lamb

Oak Grove Baptist Church, north of White Hall on 365. Oak Grove had 43 for Sunday School and 56 for Worship. Bro. M. L. Faler’s message was from Matthew Chapter 13, what kind of soil are we? "By the wayside" (rebuffed the Holy Spirit until our heart is hard). "Stony ground" (shallow hearted, hearing the Spirit but not willing to give up the worldly things that Satan entices us with, things that will be burned with fervent heat) "Thorny ground" (half hearted, double minded, some worldly things you have not given up to the Lord?) We all want to be good soil, and He does also, we must stay close to His Word as it our sword to fend off the Devil. If we are the good soil, we also should be the Sowers of the Word, sowing His Word, for He has promised it will not return unto Him void. Bro. Faler delivered the Lord's message straight out of the Holy Word. Sunday night the Siloam Campers were the message of the night. We had 14 youth go with Youth Pastor John Smith & Karen, and Ally Knight. Four (4) confessed Jesus Christ as Savior during the week. Several gave testimony about their week in Camp, they were all a blessing, especially one little girl, who started her testimony with "the best thing about Camp for me was that I was Saved!!!" What a blessing. Steve White reporting.

Rison Baptist Church, Rison, had 136 in Sunday School and 201 in morning worshipWe had 3 professions of faith. Pat Boyd reporting. Danny Allen is pastor.
