News for June 2018

As Fred Lunsford says, “Well Glory!!!!!” What a wonderful day of celebration we had on May 15th.

Thank you church for your continued support of our seniors. Thank you to all volunteers. I really do appreciate all your hard work. The evaluations were overwhelmingly positive and everyone said they received a blessing.

Psalm 107:1-3, 8  “Oh, give thanks to the Lord for He is good! For His mercy endures forever. Let the redeemed of the Lord say so. Whom He has redeemed from the hand of the enemy.” v8 “Oh that men would give thanks to the Lord for his goodness, And for his wonderful works to the children of men! For He satisfies the longing soul, And fills the hungry soul with goodness.”

I wanted to make everyone aware that the North Carolina Baptist Aging Ministry has a hotline that people can call for help .When they receive a call they call the closest Baptist church to the person who calls.

We have received two calls in the last four days. I have followed up with agencies in the county that could possibly provide the needed help.

I thought it would be helpful for our members to know about this service and others available to them and others they may be aware of that need help. I am in the process of arranging for the Cherokee County DSS to come share what services they have available for Senior Adults. Hopefully a representative will be at the Young at Heart June meeting on the 21st.

Please plan to attend the June meeting June 21st.We will have hotdogs and hamburgers. You bring potluck food that will go with them. Sign up is in the lobby.

Gloria and Roger Mays have not made it back to NC yet due to Gloria’s hip surgery. I have spoken to her today. She is making progress with physical therapy. She is excited about their new great grandson. She said to keep those prayers coming.

I am thanking the Lord for all of you,

Love in Christ,

Virginia
