News for December 2021

All folks 50 and over are invited to our annual Christmas Luncheon. This year it will be held Tuesday, December 7, 11:30 a.m., at Julie's Place in Peachtree. A sign-up sheet is on the bulletin board. Our gift exchange will be a little different this year. Since we are all at the stage in life where we have everything we need ~ and thensome ~ we're going to have a "white elephant" gift exchange. This means you should NOT buy anything, but rather find something appropriate that you no longer need or use, but could bring joy to someone else. Each man should bring a gift and mark it To: MAN, and each woman should bring a gift and mark it To: WOMAN. We'll have fun with a "Chinese gift exchange" and see who winds up with what. We will also have our annual cookie exchange. Bring a batch of your favorite cookies, and we'll have bags for you to take home a sampling of everybody else's!

This time of year brings mixed feelings to a lot of us. Those who have recently lost loved ones will have major adjustments to make, and we lovingly want to support them. These include: Pat Sealy, Pat Reed, Carol Crouse, Nancy Taylor, Sandra Dockery, Steve Booth, and Gloria Mays.

Those needing continued healing include Steve Booth, Bettie Barfield, Kenneth Lloyd, David Brooks, and Betty Franks. Pray for Shelby O'Neal as she is back to a rehab center after an extended hospital stay. 

Pray for those with ongoing needs, including 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, Lucille L Raxter, Gay West, Marna Chapman, Linda Graham, Ronney Craig, and Pat Sealy.

Continue to pray for the persecuted church around the world, including in America. Pray for the health and strength of Christian family relationships around the world, that we may be a light to those struggling in their relationships. Pray for the personnel committee as they seek a new youth pastor, and those who are working with the youth. Pray 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 college students, high school and middle school students, and those in elementary school, as well as teachers and staff in our schools, that they may let their lights shine for Jesus. Don't forget to pray for our military on a daily basis as they protect our freedoms.

Merry CHRISTmas!
