We hope that you enjoy our worship. If you have any thoughts or questions about any part of our services, feel free to contact the elders at: CHURCH INFORMATION 5348 Old Springville Road Pinson, AL 35126 205-833-1400 SERVICE TIMES Sundays: Worship 8:15 AM Bible Class 9:30 AM Worship 10:30 AM Worship 5:00 PM Wednesdays: 6:30 PM SHEPHERDS Michael Dykes John Gallagher Rick Glass Sol Godwin Skip McCurry Darnell Self MINISTERS Richard Harp Tim Shoemaker Johnathan Johnson SermonNotes10:30AMService Announcements Songs Prayer Scripture Sermon InvitationSong LordSupper/Contribution ClosingPrayer–Elder ———————————————————— 5:00PMService OpeningPrayer OnlineServices Lord’sSupper/Offering DOMforMay JohnathanJohnson BusDrivers NoBusService Watchtheservices www.deerfootcoc.comorYouTubeDeerfoot FacebookDeerfootDisciples 8:15AMService Welcome 8:15ServiceCancelled OpeningPrayer LordSupper/Offering ScriptureReading Sermon BaptismalGarmentsfor April EldersDownFront To the congregation at Deerfoot Church of Christ, from your Elders: The shepherds at Deerfoot Church of Christ continue to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on our worship and other assemblies. In light of Governor Kay Ivey’s announcement on Friday, May 8th, the Deerfoot Church of Christ will move into the next phase of COVID-19 response for church assemblies on Sunday May 31st. After much prayer, deliberation, and input from the deacons, ministers and many of you, we have a plan. It won’t be perfect, and we will tweak it and communicate it where necessary. We greatly appreciate your continued patience and support. SUNDAY ASSEMBLIES In observance of the government’s guidelines regarding 6ft social distancing, we will have a limited seating in the auditorium for approximately 100 people, with overflow in the fellowship hall. To accommodate this number, we will have three in-person services on Sunday morning at 8:00 am, 9:30 am, and 11 am with the 9:30 am service streaming live on our website, YouTube channel and Facebook page for those worshipping from home. We ask households to sit together, maintain the 6FSD between other households and STRONGLY SUGGEST the wearing of face protection (to be removed for the Lord’s Supper). If you are sick, if your health is vulnerable, or if you’re concerned about your health as we meet together, please stay home. You will be part of our worship assembly by viewing live stream during services. We will provide individually packaged Lord’s Supper unleavened bread & fruit of the vine at the doors leading in to the auditorium prior to services, partaking of the Supper at the appropriate service time. Empty containers can be properly disposed at the building exits. At the end of service, the same men serving the Supper will be taking up the collection for the saints at the same auditorium doors. Prior to and at the conclusion of the service, please fellowship outside, allowing for the 6FSD for others to move freely through the pathways, hallways, and lobby. We will be cleaning the building after each service. Which Service Will You and Your Family Attend? To ensure we maintain proper social distancing, we ask each family to let us know which worship service they prefer to attend. The survey can be submitted electronically here: A printed copy of this survey will also be mailed this week to every member, which can be printed and re- turned to the church building either by mail or between 8 am and 10 am Saturday when you pick up your communion supplies. Sunday Bible Classes The adult Bible class on Zoom will be moved to Sundays at 5 pm and will be streamed live on our website, YouTube channel and Facebook page. Building Cleaning Volunteers Needed As you can imagine, three worship services will require a bit of coordination to provide for each services (song leading, prayers, scripture reading, ushers, audio/video), safety teams, and cleaning. We will need to clean the auditorium, lobby, hallways, restrooms and fellowship hall after each service. Volunteers are needed. We Love You Thank you again for your kindness, generosity, and support. We love you. PLEASE, regardless of your personal feelings toward COVID-19 and the response, help us adhere to these guidelines, including 6FSD, to ensure each other’s well-being and in keeping with Roman 13:1. We look forward to the day we can hug and shake hands. If you have any question or concerns, please do not hesi- tate to reach out to one of the elders or email us at Galatians 6:9-10 In His Holy Name, The Shepherds of Deerfoot Church of Christ Ourweeklyshow,Plant&Water,isnowavail- able.YoucanwatchRichardandJohnathan everyWednesdayonourChurchofChrist Facebookpage.Youcanwatchorlistentothe showonyoursmartphone,tablet,orcomputer.

But we also need to see our God as the God of all knowledge! Paul asked the question, “For who hath known the mind of the Lord? Or who hath been his counsellor?” (Rom. 11:34). Clearly the implied answer is “No one.” No one has taught God; He has never asked advice; there is no problem for which God has no solution. Who has been God’s counselor, or has taught Him knowledge? None have taught God; He has never asked for advice for there is no problem for which God has no solution. In Psalms 147:5 we learn that, “Great is our Lord, and of great power: his understanding is infi- nite.” There is no limit to the knowledge of God. There is nothing that He does not know. Solomon, the wisest man alive said of God, “The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good” (Proverbs 15:3). The psalmist declared of God, “He counts the number of the stars; He calls them all by name” (Psalms 147:4). There are billions upon billions of stars and God knows everyone and has given to each of them their name! Man can’t do this. In Genesis 15:5 Moses said of Abraham, “And he brought him forth abroad, and said, 'Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them'.” Man is not able to number all the stars, let alone have names for them. Why then does man say: “My way is hid from the Lord” (Isa. 40:27)? If man really understands the knowledge of God, he will not try to hide his sins from God. Adam and Eve tried but found they could not do this. “And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the pres- ence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the gar- den” (Gen. 3:8). Cain could not hide from God what he had done to his brother. “And the LORD said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, 'I know not: Am I my brother's keeper?'" 10 And he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother's blood crieth unto me from the ground” (Gen. 4:9, 10). The woman who had been healed of an issue of blood when she touched the hem of Jesus’ gar- ment tried to hide but could not. Jesus realized that some- one had touched Him and the text tells us , “Now when the woman saw that she was not hidden, she came trembling; and falling down before Him, she declared to Him in the presence of all the people the reason she had touched Him and how she was healed immediately” (Lk. 8:47). Many men have successfully hidden things from their fellow man but they make a tragic mistake when he begins to believe that he can hide anything from God. “These things hast thou done, and I kept silence; thou thoughtest that I was alto- gether such an one as thyself: but I will reprove thee, and set them in order before thine eyes” (Psa. 50:21).
