Perkins Christian Church News Perkins Christian Church welcomes everyone in the community to its services throughout this coming wdek in preparation for the Christmas season. Sunday School begins at 9:45 a.m. and the worship service begins at 10:45. The youth of our congregation led and participated in the morning worship service last week, under the direc- tion of Mr. and Mrs. Larry Johnson. Their leadership was an inspiration to all of those in attendance and the sharing of their talents was a witness to how Jesus Christ is living in their hearts. We thank this group and we are blessed to have them willing to share scripture and its meaning to them. Each chose a favorite scripture and told of its relevance in their lives. The group par- ticipated in a choir, instrumental music pieces, and a poem. Among those sharing were: Nathan Johnson, Tara Boyce, Chad and Christy Gill, Misty Alexander, Thomas Novotny, Paul, Drew and Nicholas Beverage, Jessie Alexander, Keith Lawson, Annie, T J., and A.J. Sumner. Charles Wall, andElder in the church, con- cluded the morning worship with quotations from the Bible reminding all of the Golden Rule and the Great Commandment'as given by Jesus.
