News for September 2020

A friendly group of 19 gathered for the monthly Young At Heart activity Thursday evening, August 20. An offering of $14 was given to the food bank.
Chicken from Ingles was the main fare of the evening, and everyone's "Farm to Table" additions made for a yummy meal. Jeanette Wilson and Ronney Craig arranged the tables in a large square to allow plenty of safe distancing between diners. Centerpieces were cornucopias of fruits and vegetables.
For talent, Jim Wilson and Priscilla Cope played a few selections on the piano, Gene Craig played a medley on his harmonica, and Ronney Craig shared some Christmas cards she had made.
Helen Wilson shared a devotional out of a children's book, "Little Talks With God." It was a reminder that, in the midst of all that's going on, we just need to step back and look at the world through a child's eye: "Why?" is a common question asked by inquisitive children. Then, in simple childlike faith, we need to trust God to do what's right, in His time.
It was suggested to have a Hobo Party at the Rest Area, so that's what's on the docket for our September gathering. It will be our last supper meeting of the year, on Thursday, September 17, at 5:30 p.m. Subway sandwiches will be served, along with chips, drinks, and dessert. Plan now to pull out your overalls, straw hats, and other garb to join in the fun. A sign-up sheet is on the bulletin board.
Our ministry in prayer continues for the following: Marna Chapman, Joyce Hogan, Wade Brooks, Pat Sealy, Reba Gibson, Dana Jones, Mack and Jeannie Huscusson, Bill and Nancy Huffines, Ralph and Charlotte Clutton, Joel and Betty Franks, Winnie Dozier, Modean and Neil McKeehan, June Brooks, and Cricket Gray.
School has started in Cherokee County, and we pray for the safety and well being of all our students and staff, as well as their lights to shine for Jesus. Continue to pray for our town, county, state, and country. Pray for the upcoming election, that those who honor God's values will be voted into office Pray for wisdom for all in authority and having to make decisions about resuming activities and re-opening stores, schools, restaurants, church activities, etc. Pray for the health of Christian family relationships around the world, the persecuted church, Pastor Calvin and his family, deacons and their families, Evan and Cassie Nixon and others working with the youth, Jennifer Farr and musicians, teachers and leaders in the various Sunday ministries and Wednesday evening classes ~ as they begin a new season.
