Trust and obey

Published 7:35pm Sunday, August 11, 2013

To trust and obey is more than just the title of a hymn, according to Bethel United Methodist Church Pastor Diane Everette: It is also what her congregation did when they decided, shortly after Hurricane Ivan, to begin construction on a new fellowship hall.

Sunday morning, Bethel church members held a special note burning service to celebrate paying off the project and Everette said it was all because they trusted in the Lord and obeyed His word.

“I just want to thank everyone for the years of dedication that brought us to this day,” Everette said, prior to burning the note on the fellowship hall.
