Palestine UMC offers vacation Bible school

The July 1 worship service at Palestine United Methodist Church was led by Pastor Kevin McCormac. The title of his message was “From Me to Him” and scripture reading was from Joshua 24:19-25.
On July 8, McCormac shared his message “Trust God” and used scripture from Joshua 24:14-15, Exodus 33:11, Numbers 27:18-23, Joshua 1:1-9, Proverbs 3:5, Psalms 37:3, Romans 15:14 and 1 Peter 2:36.
