From Thursday, 07-11-2019 through Saturday, 07-13-2019, we were in central Florida (Lithia) attending the annual summer meeting for Little Union Primitive Baptist Church.
Last January, we saw their pastor, Elder Chris Crouse, at a meeting in Mississippi. He invited us to their summer meeting at Little Union, and indicated there would be several very able ministers invited to preach. They included some very good friends of ours Ronald Lawrence (Bethel Church in Nashville) and Mark Quarles (Providence Church in Laurel, MS). Here’s a picture of me with these two dear preachers and friends:
This is our first time at Little Union, but have heard lots of good things about this blessed church for several years. The building is located south of Plant City, FL. Here’s a picture of the front (my wife Sandra on the porch):
On Thursday night (07-11-2019), Ronald Lawrence spoke from Hebrews 11:21 concerning “God’s patience with Jacob and the blessings He bestows on His people, in spite of our unworthiness”. David Crawford (MacClenny Church in MacClenny, Florida) spoke from Luke 15 on “Christ’s 3 parables about the “lost” and God’s restoring Grace”. Both men are very able preachers and delivered us with very good messages.
Friday afternoon, Elders Mark Quarles and Chris McCool (Zion Church in Gordo, Alabama) arrived to preach for the remainder of the meeting.
On Friday night, Ronald Lawrence preached from Luke 12 on the topic of “God knows everything about us – He will take care of us”. Chris McCool preached from 1 Corthinians 10 on “God makes a way for us to escape temptation”. Mark Quarles preached from Matthew 15 on the “Healing power of Jesus”.
On Saturday morning, Chris McCool brought us a message from Romans 8 on the “Things under consideration”. Mark Quarles preached from Luke 10 on “God will take care of us”. Ronald Lawrence preached from 2 Samuel 9 on “God’s covenant – His mercy and kindness towards us”.
We started the long drive home Saturday afternoon after morning services and lunch. It was a very blessed time for us, and we are very thankful.
