Larry Cooper brought the morning message for the Potts Camp Charge on Sunday morning. His topic was “What happens to us when God removes the hedge (His protective hand) from us?” It was a very good and timely message. He said that God has blessed us in so many ways and it is now time we stand up for our Lord. Too often we take our blessings for granted. We need to remember to thank God or to thank others for all they do for us. Mitch Stone, music director, sang “Amazing Grace,” accompanied by his guitar.
