We are so excited about this Sabbath. If this is your first International Sabbath Celebration, or you have been to all 5 of our previous years, please take a look at all the fun this Sabbath will bring this year. Things are a little different than in years past, so take a quick peek so you can make sure you don't miss anything. Also please take special note that the Ouachita Hills Academy and College will be having a vespers concert in our Sanctuary to wrap up our Sabbath day that you will want to come back for.
International Sabbath Services
Sabbath, April 23, 8:45 AM - 1:30 PM
International Sabbath is in 2 days! We will start this special event at 8:45 on Sabbath morning with a breakfast provided for you, followed by a special Sabbath School in the sanctuary for the adults at 9:45 (children's Sabbath Schools will be held as usual). We will start our worship service at 11:00 with our Parade of Nations, then music and worship that highlights the many international cultures represented here at Middletown. The most scrumptious part of the day is the International Potluck that follows the service. Here is how you can participate.
1) Plan to attend by marking your calendar and inviting friends and neighbors.
2) Wear international clothing from any country, even a T-shirt from a foreign vacation.
3) Cook an international dish for potluck on that Sabbath.
4) Pray that a spirit of unity will permeate not only this event but everything we do for Christ here at Middletown.
