The First Word for May 2 and other matters


  1. Please take special note of the National Day of Prayer Gathering at the Gazebo in Eden at 12:01 pm on Thursday, May 6. We will worship and prayer for about 28 minutes.
  2. We will be showing the movie “Breakthrough” on Sunday, May 16 @ 5:30 pm. Invite your friends to this inspirational movie.

Apology for those in attendance at last week’s Church Business Meeting:

Dear Church,

I have confessed and apologized to the individuals involved and to our Deacon Body and believe I should include one here. It is with a contrite heart and the

deepest of regrets that I send this open apology for my unnecessary comments and the tone with which I said them during this meeting. While there may be

multiple factors at play (I have had an infection with fever followed by sweats), there is no excuse for my response. I have had some good input from

Christian friends and I will be meeting with my professional counselor in the near future to continue to search out the “inner source” of my angst that resulted in such an unhealthy response. I appreciate your prayers almost as much I value your forgiveness.

Sincerely in Jesus’ Service,

Marty Akins
