News from Pleasant View Baptist Church: Sept. 15, 2016

By Scena Ann Petrey  

Celebrate with us Sunday, Sept. 25 our church’s 100th anniversary.  Special day all day!
Edwina Jacobs spoke about God’s faithfulness to her and her family during good and bad times.
Bro. Ron Davis, who was with us last weekend, spoke about  “Commissioning Service for the Church” from John 20 and Matthew 28:16. On Resurrection day, the disciples were fractured and feared for their lives. After all, they had witnessed Jesus’ trial and crucifixion just a couple of days before. The  disciples were locked in the upper room questioning what would be next. Jesus  came into their midst and said, “Peace be unto you!”  
Jesus spent the next 40 days preparing them for His ascension into heaven. They went from cowering, fearful young men into God’s disciples carrying the “Good News” boldly to everyone. With the exception of John, all the disciples  died a martyr’s death.  
Following the service, John and Rebecca Braham joined our church. Welcome!  
Sympathy and prayers to Juanita Denny and family on the death of her aunt  last week.
