Jerry Payne is the Head Football Coach at Charleston High School and he spoke at our church on Sunday, July 11th. In the audience, he recognized Kegan Weber as a student he taught at Jefferson School many years ago. Now, 19 years of age, the two posed for the picture following the service.

Jerry told much of his life story and how just when it looked like doors were closed, miraculously another route was opened. Remarkably interesting…Jerry has learned to roll with things and be patient. God has plans for all of us, no matter our age or station in life.

The public is invited to join us for morning worship at 10:00 AM on Sunday, July 11, 2021. Our special guest speaker will be Jerry Payne.

Jerry Payne has been a teacher coach for more than 25 years. It all started with Junior League Football and last season, under his leadership, the Charleston High School football team finished with four wins and two losses….the best record in many years. A hard worker, he expects the best from his players and himself….He learned those lessons early in life. Originally from a small town in Missouri (Potosi) he worked his way west and he has been in Illinois for most of his recent years. As a youngster, he always was open to the Christian message delivered in the Scriptures and enjoys telling others about the one who loves them the most. Several years ago, he attended and was certified in a Lay Speaker Educational Seminar. In the “off season”..he really doesn’t have one, you can find him huddling with other Christian coaches, challenging and encouraging each other.

All are welcome at Charleston First Baptist, 2800 University Drive, Charleston, IL.

ANNOUNCEMENT:
JOHN McINERNEY TO SPEAK SUNDAY, JUNE 20

When John McInerney enrolled at EIU in the mid-1970’s no one knew much about him. Now, nearly some 50 years latter, more people know him than don’t. He was an average distance runner when he graduated from Crystal Lake HS, but his leadership and determination put him on the EIU team that won the NCAA National Cross Country Championship. He was named All-American in that race and this was just the beginning. He began teaching and coaching in HS and before you knew it, he was coaching the very successful EIU Cross Country and Distance runners in track.

From the very beginning, he was a strong member of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and to this day, he is well known in and around Charleston for his spirit of encouragement

He will be speaking at the 10 AM Worship Service this Sunday (June 20th) at the First Baptist Church…2800 University Drive, Charleston, IL

Everyone is welcome to attend the service.

Transforming Grace Luke 19:1-10 Pastor Steven Hayes

Ernie Haase and Signature Sound

Why should I feel discouraged?
Why should the shadows come?
Why should my heart be lonely
and long for heaven and home,
when Jesus is my portion?
My constant friend is he:
his eye is on the sparrow,
and I know he watches me;
his eye is on the sparrow,
and I know he watches me.

Refrain:
I sing because I’m happy, (I’m happy)
I sing because I’m free, (I’m free)
for his eye is on the sparrow,
and I know he watches me.

“Let not your heart be troubled,”
his tender word I hear,
and resting on his goodness,
I lose my doubts and fears;
though by the path he leadeth
but one step I may see:
his eye is on the sparrow,
and I know he watches me;
his eye is on the sparrow,
and I know he watches me. [Refrain]

Whenever I am tempted,
whenever clouds arise,
when song gives place to sighing,
when hope within me dies,
I draw the closer to him;
from care he sets me free:
his eye is on the sparrow,
and I know he watches me;
his eye is on the sparrow,
and I know he watches me. [Refrain]

HIS EYE IS ON THE SPARROW
Words by Civilla D. Martin (1905)
Music by Charles H. Gabriel (1905)
