Wanted to share the blessings we received while attending the Saturday session of the annual Fall meeting at Rome Midway Primitive Baptist Church.
The meeting started Friday night, we attended the Saturday services.
Rome-Midway Church is located 9 miles north of Rome, GA.
The pastor is Elder Joe Hayes.
Each preaching service is preceded by a song service, led by song leaders, and sung by the congregation “a Capella” (without musical instruments).
Elder David Guttery, pastor of Macedonia Primitive Baptist Church, spoke first. Bro. David preached from Ecclesiastes 11: 9-10, which gives us a warning that we need the Lord’s help to resist evil.
Ecclesiastes 12:1 reminds us to “Remember now thy creator in the days of thy youth”, and to keep our eyes on the Lord.
Elder Philip Conley brought us an excellent message on the importance of looking to God for all help, and less on this world. He spoke from 2 Corinthians 4, Romans 5, and 2 Peter. He encouraged us to glory in the Lord in good and bad times, because He is with us always.
Morning services were followed by a fellowship luncheon.
Elder Philip Conley opened services with a message from 1 Corinthians 15: 21, showing us – by man (Adam) came (spiritual) death, by man (Jesus), came resurrection of the dead. The good news of the Gospel is, we are “Alive in Christ”!
Elder David Guttery preached from Matthew 1 on the genealogy of Joseph (the “adopted Dad of Jesus”).
It was a blessed day of preaching and fellowship.
