The LORD's Day Blessings

Every day is a day "that the Lord has made," but this past Sunday seemed to be a special gift from God. This Sunday was different as our little fellowship of 6 families met in the Eddy's basement for our service. (We greatly appreciate all the work that went into emptying, cleaning and fixing it up.) The message was on the Spiritual Blessings we have from God in Christ found in Ephesians 1. What marvelous but deep truths we contemplated as we learned of the spiritual blessings which are ours: election before the foundation of the world that we might be holy, adoption according to His good pleasure, redemption through Christ's blood and forgiveness of sins according to the riches of His grace! Each of these gave us a lot to praise God for as we realized that they were all given to us for His glory and not our own. We ended the service with lively songs of praise to our great and glorious Lord!

Following are some pictures highlighting our blessed Lord's Day!
