Friday night and Saturday morning were exciting times in Pine Prairie, Louisiana. Bro. Gautreaux and his folks have worked long and hard and diligently for about three years to build their new sanctuary. It is beautiful, perfectly sized and God certainly sanctified it to His service over the weekend. Both services were wonderful!
Pastor Barry Gautreaux and Davy
Friday night the new sanctuary was filled to overflowing for a great Youth Rally.
Bro. David Webb preached outstanding to us and the young folks responded in the altar service. God touched our lives and it was wonderful to feel His touch.
Saturday was a beautiful day for the dedication service. There was another big crowd present Saturday morning for a great service.
Pastor Gautreaux began by telling the history of the church and then thanked a bunch of folks that helped in the building process. That part of the service was very touching. Then his family sang a couple of songs.
Then it was our time in the service. Bro. Gautreaux requested we sing "Ain't Gonna Give Up On God" and then I preached a sermon for the dedication of the new sanctuary. God help us and I am very thankful for it.
Pastor Russel McDonald capped off the day with a perfect sermon to the lost. God used him and then touched the people in the altar service!
Afterward, Bro. Gautreaux gathered the people around and everyone prayed that God would use this new sanctuary for His glory and for the saving of souls.
When the service was over we had a wonderful meal and great fellowship before we went our separate ways.
It was a great honor and privilege to be a part of this weekend. The Pine Prairie folks are wonderful friends and we love them dearly. They desperately needed the new sanctuary and we are so glad it is finished. May God bless them for their hard work and fill it up for His glory.
Thanks for reading.
