News for May 2022

A delightful time was had by the 22 who attended the Young At Hearts "Show and Tell" luncheon on Thursday, April 21. Jim and Pat Lancaster prepared a yummy ham, and everyone else supplied other meats and complementary dishes. Ronney Craig decorated the tables with spring bunnies. Priscilla Cope shared a devotional about the Seven Wonders of God that reminded us how great God is and how much He cares about us as individuals, and how His desire is for us to live for Him. An offering of $34 was collected for the Food Bank.

May is a special month, in that the first Sunday we celebrate Senior Day. There will be some special "Senior Moments" in the morning service, and in the evening we'll share a church-wide fellowship meal in our Fellowship Hall. 

Tuesday, May 10, there will be a special program for seniors at the Peachtree Memorial Baptist Church. Sessions will address particular needs that seniors face. It will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and will include lunch.

We will also have a "field trip" to Meeks Park in Blairsville on our usual third Thursday meeting date, May 19. We plan to take the bus.

We have many ways to exercise our privilege of prayer. One of the areas is to remember our Christian brothers and sisters in Ukraine, that families will be reunited soon. Pray also for the displaced persons who are seeking refuge in neighboring countries. We need to be in continued prayer for the persecuted church around the world, especially in America. Pray for our governmental leaders, especially with elections coming up this month. Know who the candidates are that support Godly values and vote them in.

Pray for healing for Reba Gibson, Kenneth Lloyd, Michael Donovan, Pat Sealy, and Faye Parker after recent surgeries; and for others with major health problems, including Steve Booth, Bettie Barfield, David Brooks, Frank and Helen Wilson, Priscilla Cope, Jean Higdon, and Shelby O'Neal. Pray also for those who have recently lost loved ones, including the family of Jack Postell.

Those with ongoing needs include Burke and Dianne West, Dana Jones, Mack and Jeannie Huscusson, Bill and Nancy Huffines, Ralph and Charlotte Clutton, Art and Kelly Richter, Neil and Modean McKeehan, June Brooks, Cricket Gray, Gay West, Marna Chapman, Marilyn Raxter, Linda Graham, and Ronney Craig.

Pray for the health and strength of Christian family relationships around the world. Pray for the Personnel Committee as they seek a youth pastor, and for those who are working with the youth. Pray for our church's financial need and for unity as we work together to further the Kingdom of God. 

Pray for Pastor Calvin and his family, deacons and their families, Jennifer Farr and musicians, teachers and leaders in the various Sunday ministry and Wednesday evening classes, and each one who has a unique part in making Andrews First Baptist Church a lighthouse for Jesus. Remember our students as they near the end of another school year, with various tests to take. Pray for our college students, high school and middle school students, and all those in elementary school, as well as teachers and staff in our schools, that they may let their lights shine for Jesus. Remember to pray for our military on a daily basis as they protect our freedoms, and pray that their families may be reunited soon, too.

Lord, make me a blessing to someone today!
