Deacon Mike Stewart was our guest speaker this week. He was ordained as a Deacon at the age of 55.
He said there will be 3 new Deacons ordained this Saturday
The topic of his presentation centered on the Covid Pandemic and the effects it had on people
It gave a sense of Doom and Gloom for a lot of people, causing loneliness even in the home
Because so many things were closed including Churches it has presented a lot of problems for families
In some cases he has gotten calls from folks who want to GET RIGHT WITH GOD due to a loss of a loved one or illness they have endured
He concluded his presentation by answering questions from our members
