PRAISE REPORT: A church member had such pain in his knee that he couldn't walk. The clinic said he had no cartilage and fluid on the knee. He prayed, and one morning he woke up and pain and problem were GONE instantly! All glory to GOD!! Healing still happens! 
 
You are invited and welcome to Wednesday Bible study at 6:00-7:00. We are studying Psalms. God's Word creates life and peace and joy! What are you waiting for? Why stay home and be in a low level of energy? Make the effort to get into your cold car and get here. You will be inspired and super-charged to face and overcome every challenge by faith! Call the church office at 833-6171 if you’d like a five dollar meal from Neighborhood Pizza Café. Choir practice at 7:15.
 

PRAISE REPORT: The pastor was recently asked to pray for a friend's mother who was diagnosed with lung cancer. On Monday December 17 she said the cat scan showed the two tumors are GONE! She said, "Thank you, God works in mysterious ways." All glory to GOD!! Healing still happens! 

 

PRAISE REPORT: A church member asked the pastor to pray for her husband's excruciating back pain at the circle of prayer at the altar last Sunday. On Monday December 17 his wife shared, "PRAISE GOD! PRAISE GOD! PRAISE GOD! Steve's back is a whole lot better!!! In fact, he said the pain is gone! He is still sore, but he's able to get up and move around some. Thank you for praying with me." All glory to GOD! 

 

A young boy prayed to receive Jesus as his Lord and Savior on Sunday December 2nd, 2018. Thank you Lord! We garnered the applause of Heaven!

 

Do you know that Antioch has a new singles group? We do. It's comprised mainly of senior adults now, but anyone is welcome to join.  

 
We prayed for Collin, J.R.'s grandson. J.R. shared on Facebook that Collin's operation was complete on Monday and all doctors were real happy with the results. Thanks to each and everyone of you who lifted Collin in prayer. J.R. said, "For those of you do not believe in prayers I’ve a bunch of miracles to tell you about!!"

A few weeks ago, the pastor's friend said: "My husband is very sick. I am asking for prayer warriors. He has had the flu but it has compromised his immune system. Thank you."

A few hours later, that same friend wrote: "It is amazing how blessed we are to have so many wonderful friends. My husband was really having trouble breathing when I asked for prayer warriors. As I began getting comments of prayers back, he started breathing well. He wanted me to thank all of you and tell you how much he appreciates your prayers. God definitely intervened... Praise His holy name. I watched a miracle happen."
 
To say that WE ARE BLESSED is an understatement!

The Choir sang "God Bless America" at the Springfield Cardinal ballgame on May 30th.
 
We gave out food to 183 people and 108 families at the Crosslines Food Distribution on Friday April 6th! We also gave out food to 152 people and 48 families at the Crosslines Food Distribution on Saturday March 10th! THANK YOU JESUS! 
 
We pray after both 8:30 and 11:00 worship services. We prayed for several church members throughout October. One lady had her gout pain gone in her knee instantly. The gout pain decreased in her foot, from a level 7 to a level 2 on a scale of 1-7. This lady walked into church with a cane, and walked out of church WITHOUT her cane. One the same day, one man's back pain decreased and his brother in law's knee pain was gone instantly.

PRAISE REPORT: Optic nerve stroke greatly improved after laying on of hands and prayer! Lung pain was healed instantly, pain in lung and torso almost completely gone! 
 
Awesome testimony from one of our newest members...

"After church today we had a prayer circle. We prayed for each other and our families. I have said before I believe in miracles and here is why. I not only witnessed pain being removed from others. Praise God! I also was in terrible pain this morning. I am used to daily pain, but today was hitting me hard. I felt some relief from pain after prayer, so we all prayed again for more relief. I felt a little more relief. I am now home and although not totally pain free, my pain levels are even less than they are on a daily basis. Again Praise God. Took me a little longer to feel the blessing, but I did."

So far we've got gout pain healed, back pain healed, shoulder pain decreased, osteoarthritis pain decreased! Thank you Lord! Jesus is still on the throne!

So expect blessings and miracles this Sunday as we magnify the mighty name of Jesus at 8:30 and 11:00!
