Sophomores Put on a Courtesy Program

Sabbath services on January 28, 2017 began with a piano introit by Jairit (senior). Wendy Carr and Cesiah (sophomore) led the song service, accompanied by Jairit on the piano.  The opening song was “Father, Lead Me Day by Day”. Rachel (sophomore) welcomed everyone.

Thanos (sophomore) had prayer and read the scripture reading – 1 Peter 3:8 “Finally, [be ye] all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, [be] pitiful, [be] courteous.”

The congregation then watched a Mission Spotlight video on Adventist education work in Croatia, highlighting the experience of one student at the Adventist school there. The school needs money to build a new boys’ dorm and to upgrade the existing buildings to current educational standards.

Elyjah (sophomore) then called for the Laurelbrook Missions Offering, which was collected by Isaac (senior) and Sammy (senior) and which goes to support Laurelbrook mission trips.   Cesiah (sophomore) then sang for special music, accompanied by a sound tape.

The sophomore class had the superintendent’s remarks on “The Importance of Courtesy in the Christian Life”. George (sophomore) had the closing prayer. The congregation then became three Sabbath School classes, one taught by Clayton Brandt in the church sanctuary,  one taught by Ben De La Cruz at the back of the sanctuary “behind the glass”, and one taught by Rich Sutton in the lobby of the CNA building.
Following are a few notes from the theme talk: 
  1. (ideas from Ellen White) Jesus was courteous even to those persecuting Him.
  2. We should have brotherly kindness in dealing with everyone, including fellow church members.
  3. If a person has the love of Christ, he will show courtesy and kindness towards others.
  4. Paul and Jesus were examples of kind and courteous people.
