*Eva Hitchcock’s funeral and interrment will take place at Tilsworth on Monday 28 September at 11am.  This is primarily for family, although anyone is welcome.  There will be a thanksgiving for Eva’s life at 2:30 at Kings Langley Baptist Church.
*A guest speaker, Alice McDermott will be bringing us a message on 5 December.
Sue Ann prays over the offering

The Offering was introduced by David Silcox.  He read in Hebrews 10 saying the law was a shadow of things to come.  Everything in Leviticus was temporary and a shadow of the Gospel—a new and living way, made possible by the sacrifice of Jesus.  We participate in that gospel through our lives and through our offerings.
The Hymn during the Offering was You Are My Anchor
The Blessing over the Offering was given by Philip Halford

Hymn 5.  The Lord Eternal Reigns 

Video of Dr. Joseph Tkach Speaking of Life entitled Syrian Jesus

David speakingThe Message was given by David Silcox, who went through the rituals of Leviticus and showed how they shadowed or foretold and were symbolic of the fulfillment in the sacrifice of Jesus Christ.  The Day of Atonement in the Old Testament was the Day of Covering—the blood of animals did not remove or forgive sins as the sacrifice of Jesus once for all did, which he read about in Hebrews 9 & 10. Hebrews 10:1 the law was a shadow of the good things to come, verse 20 a new and living way

The final Hymn was Immortal, Invisible, God Only Wise after which the Closing Prayer was led by Sue ann Henderson
