David Smith Talks About How to Treat Others

Sabbath services on February 4, 2017 began with an organ introit by Penny Thomas. Ginny Arce led the song service, accompanied by Samantha (9th grader) on the piano and a group of students playing various instruments. Alejandra (senior) welcomed everyone.  The opening song was “Give Me the Bible”.

Cesar (senior) had prayer and read the scripture reading. Camila (senior) read a mission story about the spread of the Adventist message in Poland after the end of the communist government.  A new studio for the Hope Channel is part of the 13th Sabbath Offering.

Alejandra (senior) then called for the Laurelbrook Missions Offering, which was collected by Sarah (junior) and Citalali (junior) and which goes to support Laurelbrook mission trips. 

David Smith had the superintendent’s remarks on ways of dealing with people who are out of line. Just preaching to them or reading from inspired counsel doesn’t always reach people who need help. Sometimes they need time to make the necessary corrections.  Gentle corrections often work. Edgar (senior) then played a saxophone solo for special music. David Smith had the closing prayer.

The congregation then became three Sabbath School classes - one taught by James Brenneman in the main church sanctuary, one taught by Michelle and Bob Gustafson at the back of the church sanctuary “behind the glass”, and one taught by Hillis Jeffries III in the CNA building.
