Lois Davis Discusses Leaning on God


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


Following are a few notes from Lois Davis’ presentation:


  1. The Lord shields us so don’t get upset with trials that come on us.
  2. We destroy our confidence in God when we protest that we shouldn’t be treated a certain way.
  3. The bright beams of Jesus surround us and prevent Satan from entering our lives.
  4. Even though we make mistakes, that doesn’t turn God against us.
  5. Jesus then helps us turn that mistake into a victory.
  6. We are Christ’s property and are not here to “do our own thing”.
  7. The three Hebrews thrown into the fiery furnace were probably close to being teenagers. God kept the Hebrews safe when they decided to lean on Him. Their part was being willing to do what was right and studying what that right is.
  8. The Holy Spirit wants to help us but wants us to make the choice to do right.
