Musical Prelude  


Call to Worship                           

We have come as the body of Christ to do Holy business for our King. We have come in troubled times, but we have high spirits.  We know the  Eternal One is still on the throne.  Saints, lift up holy hands, lift high your voices and praise the Sovereign One.  Mighty is our God, holy are His judgments, and He is altogether lovely.  Praise Him!  Praise Him!  Praise Him!

The Period to Receive Those Whom The Lord Will Send





  “To Me It’s So Wonderful/O How I love Jesus”


     To me it’s so wonderful, to me it’s so wonderful,

     to me it’s so wonderful to know that Jesus is mine.


            O How I love Jesus, O how I love Jesus,              

O how I love Jesus, because He first loved me.


  “Sweet Hour of Prayer”—Prayer Meeting

Again, all are encouraged to meet this Tuesday for a special time of prayer for our church body.   Pastor Sholar has asked that we continue to gather in the Chapel Sanctuary at 12noon and assemble for prayer for one hour, uniting in prayer before the LORD.  We are blessed to know--and are assured--God hears and answers prayer—we want to be faithful to continue in prayer.   Please plan to attend.

   Luke 11:5-10   

 “…And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.

For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.” 



Brothers, please join us for our annual Brutus Price and Thomas Paige Retreat as the men of Main Street Baptist Church (Lexington, KY) and the men of Watson Memorial Baptist Church (Louisville) come together at Lake Cumberland State Resort Park for a few days of food, fellowship and the Word of GOD.

Sunday Morning Service 8/13/23

Text: Psalm 34:1-8

Title: The Lord Will Deliver the Afflicted


Three responses from those whom the Lord has rescued from trials:

I. They worship the Lord for delivering them out of their troubles [vv. 1-3]







II. They witness about the Lord that He heard their cry [vv. 4-7]









III. They wish for others to taste and see that the Lord is good [v. 8]





Responsive Reading for the Month of August, 2023:

Catechism – a set form of questions and answers to teach the tenets of the Christian Faith:

Question: What sort of Redeemer is needed to bring us back to God?

Answer: One who is truly human and also truly God.


Question: Why must the Redeemer be truly human?

Answer: That in human nature He might on our behalf perfectly obey the whole law and suffer the punishment for human sin; and also that He might sympathize with our weaknesses.


Question: Why must the Redeemer by truly God?

Answer: That because of His divine nature His obedience and suffering would be perfect and effective; and also that He would be able to bear the righteous anger of God against sin and yet overcome death.
