Pearl Church of Christ Revival set for July 6 and 7

Posted

Future dates for Bookstore and Pearl Bluegrass days are July 6, Aug. 3, Sept. 14 (second Saturday due to a longstanding booking for a reunion), Oct. 5, Nov. 2, and Dec. 7. Mark your calendars. Kay and Corlisa will love seeing you, so stop by and visit and enjoy a shopping adventure. Also, the Pearl Bluegrass event is a great opportunity for nursing homes, retirement homes, and assisted living residents to get out and enjoy a day of music and fun for free. There is no admission to sit in the auditorium to listen to the various bands that come to play on the stage. The stage show begins at 1 p.m. and usually goes on until about 5 p.m. Besides listening to the bands, visiting and just being out in the country in Pearl is refreshing and delightful. Truly, there’s no place like Pearl! Please let your activity directors in the various area senior settings know all about Pearl. They’ll love you for it.

The Pearl Church of Christ will hold its annual Revival on July 6 and 7, with an ice cream supper following the service on the 7th. The church service will begin at 7 p.m., with the ice cream fellowship immediately following. The Sunday morning church service begins at 10:30 a.m. Everyone is invited to attend and to bring friends, family, and people you just met with you.

Two of our Pearl superstars are shining again. Cooper received fourth in 4H State Animal Science Education, and Riley placed first in the 12/13 age group in discus at Crawford. We are so proud of these kiddos. The future of Pearl is looking bright indeed!

This week’s Bible verse comes from Psalm 46:  God is our refuge and strength, a very ready help in trouble. Therefore, we will not fear, though the earth shakes, and the mountains slip into the heart of the sea; though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains quake at its swelling pride. There is a river whose streams make the city of God happy, the holy dwelling places of the Most High. God is in the midst of her, she will not be moved; God will help her when morning dawns. The nations made an uproar, the kingdoms tottered; He raised His voice, the earth quaked. The Lord of armies is with us; the God of Jacob is our stronghold. Come, behold the works of the Lord, who has inflicted horrific events on the earth. He makes wars to cease to the end of the earth; He breaks the bow and cuts the spear in two; He burns the chariots with fire. “Stop striving and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted on the earth.” The Lord of armies is with us; The God of Jacob is our stronghold. NASB
