Worship service at Macedonia Baptist

We had a good discussion in Sunday School out at Macedonia Baptist Church this morning; we have been going through Ephesians this quarter.
The worship service began with the baptism of a lad who accepted Jesus as his Savior a couple of weeks ago.
Our call to worship was "The Family of God."
In the announcements, we learned that on Sunday, Nov. 28, we'll have the Hanging of the Green during the morning service. (I called it Hanging of the Greens for years and then someone asked me if we were hanging turnip, mustard and collard out at the church.)
Mark your calendar for these events, too:
Dec. 12--Children's Christmas Program during the morning service.
Dec. 19--Adult Choir Christmas Cantata during the morning service.
Dec. 22--Candlelight and Praise Service, 6:30.
The three hymns we sang were "Count Your Blessings," "We Gather Together," and "Great Is Thy Faithfulness."
Special music sung by nine boys in the Fales family was "Amazing Grace."
Pastor Dave Scudder's sermon today was "The Life That Causes Unbelievers to Glorify God in a Hostile World."His text was I Peter 2:11-17. In these verses, Peter urges born-again believers to:
1. Live honorably among the lost in the world.
2. Submit to human authority.
3. Don't use your freedom in Christ to conceal evil.
The hymn of invitation was "Only Trust Him."

Here is a version of "Great Is Thy Faithfulness":
