The Sabbath services on December 8, 2018 began with a song service led by Heissel and Daphne (juniors) accompanied by Samantha (junior) on the piano and Jeremy Westcott on the organ. The opening song was “When He Cometh”.
Lois Davis welcomed everyone. Denisse (junior) had prayer, and read the scripture reading.
Mark (junior) read a story of a person who read the Bible several times. He wondered why his church displayed carved images. After marrying and opening several shops, he came into contact with an Adventist member. He found out about the Sabbath and started worshipping on the seven-day Sabbath. Eventually he joined the Adventist church.
He then called for the Laurelbrook Missions Offering, which was collected by Benny and Holden (sophomores) and which goes to support Laurelbrook mission trips.
Lois Davis had the theme talk, had the closing prayer, and announced the classes. James Brenneman led the lesson study in the main sanctuary. The students had a Sabbath School class in the nursing home, in the boys’ dorm lobby, and in the room “behind the glass” in the rear of the church sanctuary.
Personnel Other Than Students:
James Brenneman – teaches English 11 and American History and Government / works with the institutional grounds department and various publications and web sites
Lois Davis – secretary to Laurelbrook president Rich Sutton
