News for October 2019

There were 27 who enjoyed the supper meal Thursday, September 19, with an "Old-Fashioned" theme. The yummy fried chicken from Ingles was accompanied by potluck dishes brought by our good cooks. All agreed that Nancy Taylor had on the most authentic "old-timey" outfit. Two people brought antiques to show: Ronney Craig shared a teddy bear that she has had since her immigration journey from Germany in 1953, and Jean Higdon showed a straight razor that her dad had used many years ago. Jean and Faye Parker decorated the tables with red and white gingham table covers, mum plants, and little pyramids of honeycrisp apples. Everyone was invited to take apples home with them after the meal. There was $24 given to help the Cherokee County Food Bank.

Don't forget that a goal has been set to bring $1 per person each month to help the ministry of the Cherokee County Food Bank.  There's an ongoing need there for more help, financially as well as with time.  See Gene Craig or Joel Franks if you are interested in helping with that ministry to find out what you can do.

The October 17 meeting will be a unique outing to the Dillard House in Dillard, GA. Lunch will feature three meats and various vegetables and sides served family style. Each person going will only need to pay $10, and the YAH treasury will pick up the rest of the tab. Following lunch, those who desire may go to the petting zoo on the same property. The bus will leave the church at 10:00 a.m. In order to make reservations for this trip, you must give Ronney your $10 by Sunday, October 13. Sign-up sheet will be on the bulletin board.

Those who need prayer include:  Virginia Adams, June Brooks, Neil and Modean McKeehan, Virginia Cox, Marilyn Tyler, Harlace Sealy, Donald and Joyce Hogan, and others who have ongoing health and other needs. Remember Kent Chapman in the Murphy Rehab Center, as well as his wife Marna at home. Pray that our mission team in Ukraine will accomplish much physically and spiritually; pray, too, for their health ~ Dane Parker, Paul Revis, and Jim Wilson.  Pray for the health of Christian family relationships, Pastor Calvin and his family, deacons and their families, the youth directors, choir director and musicians, teachers and leaders in the various Sunday ministries and Wednesday evening classes, the outreach to the hungry on Monday nights, 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.
