Devoted Christians



The service on Sept 8, 2019 was in honor of Dorothy Jacobs. A long time member of First Baptist Church in Sigourney, Iowa. Dorothy passed away at the age of 97.

This message is about four attributes of devoted Christians found in Acts 2:42-47.

I. Devoted to Prayer.

II. Devoted to the Word of God.
