This was the second time that Bro Lyons has preached for us. The first time we came a global pandemic happened with Covid-19 and this time another incident happened. Besides all of the distractions GOd used Brother Lyons to speak to the hearts of our folks.
Our service yesterday started off like it normally does and everything was going along as planned. Jenna was scheduled to sing the special right before the preaching, and we had a guest speaker Jonathan Lyons the VP for Missions for Forgotten Peoples with us.
In the middle of my daughters special, I noticed a gentlemen coughing a little, then it keep getting louder and more frequent. Then the gentlemen next to him started doing the same thing. I didnt think too much of it as he was offered a cough drop. Then it slowly started overcoming more and more people in our auditorium. I saw my wife frantically moving around trying to figure out what is going on. Next thing I know nearly everyone is in tears coughing and choking. I then suddenly stopped the special and instructed everyone to leave until we can figure out what was going on.
Apparently one of out bus kids was playing with my daughters keys in which there is a pepper spray attached to the chain. Well, he opened it and accidentally sprayed some in the air.
Those watching out live stream were so confused as to what was going on. Definitely never a dull moment at Highpoint.
We’ll see what happens when Bro Lyons comes the third time. Can’t wait.
What a joy it was to have our service outdoors yesterday. Good attendance, good food, and a great spirit. Thank you for the many who spent countless hours in getting everything ready for Sunday morning. The Bible says in Proverbs 3:27 “Withhold not good from them to whom it is due,……” so thank you to Stephen, Freddy, Jenna, Mike, Tori, and Mrs Trish for making this great day happen. Thank you to all the ladies that helped bring food for the fellowship afterwords. – Was a great day.
The Prayer Cross is up and many have already placed their prayer requests on it. Keep praying that God will do something BIG in your life through prayer. Keep adding to the cross, lets get the devil on the run.
It was great having Church Planters Ben Potter and his wife with us on Thursday night. What a great message and great evening. Thank you all that had a part wither there or watching the live stream. Please continue to pray for the potters as they are seeking support to go to Burlington Vermont to plant a church.
God gave us a beautiful day for our Easter Drive in service. It was great seeing our members come out in support of this great day. Even though we live in uncertain times, God has been blessing Highpoint and Easter Sunday was no different. The outdoor meeting had a feeling like back in the old days of tent revivals. God was uplifted and glorified through the preaching and music of God’s word. We are planning a Old Fashioned Revival Tent meeting this summer, stay connected for details coming soon.
We want to thank all of you that faithfully join us each week live via our facebook page. Like all of you we can’t wait until we all can meet back together again in our church building, but until then…keep watching and when you do, please leave a comment letting us know you are there.
Thursday Service was a first for us as we went live stream only due to the Covid-19 virus. Brother Lyons was scheduled to preach for us and preach he did. His sons also sang for us and blessed us with music. Thank you all who tuned into our live stream and watched and prayed from your homes. I miss my church family.
As a pastor there are certain services that really encourage you, and last night was one of them. The testimony of Pastor Robert Barnett is really encouraging. From being saved in Wolcott, Ct from the bus ministry to Preacher in Tennessee, his life should encourage any Christian. Many tuned in to the live stream to watch and what a great evening we had.
You can watch the video below. We are working in getting a better audio quality to our live stream.
The Ladies of Highpoint met at Cheryl’s house for a time of breakfast, fellowship, crafts, and fun. We appreciate the ladies of Highpoint and thank them for their faithfulness to the Lord. Thank you all that came out this morning, we are looking forward to the next meeting.
It just seems that every year the Anniversary service just keeps getting better and better. The service we well attended with members and guests. We are just praising the Lord for all that He has done, as we have seen so much spiritual growth in our members. We are looking forward to 2020, as we continue to talk about Jesus.
