News for June 2019

God answered prayer for good weather for the May 16 picnic.  There were 13 people who went to the Georgia Mountain Fair Grounds pavilion on Lake Chatuge. The main course was Subway sandwiches with all the trimmings. Lunch was made complete with desserts made by several ladies in the group. Jim Wilson gave a devotional on picnics found in the Bible. Nancy Huffines and Jim shared stories about Fred Lunsford.

After lunch the bus took the group to the Hamilton Gardens. Some sat on benches while several walked on trails spying out the ivy in bloom, as well as rhododendron and azaleas. A total of $17 was collected for the food bank, and a good time was had by all!

The third Thursday of June is the 20th, at which time there will be a Young at Heart luncheon held in the church's Fellowship Hall. Hot dogs and hamburgers will be grilled, so bring along fixin's to go with them. The meal will begin at 11:30 a.m. Guests are always welcome!

Continue to pray for Robert Taylor, who has had to be off his feet for over 12 weeks now, and he can hardly wait to get doctor's clearance to be able to get out; Kent Chapman and Maurice Sherrill, in the Murphy Rehab Center; the Jerry Morgan family in the recent Homegoing of Jerry's mother; Virginia Adams, Virginia Cox, Marilyn Tyler, Barb Jones and Baby Eli, and others who have ongoing health and other needs. Pray for good strong Christian family relationships, Pastor Calvin and his family, deacons and their families, deacon elections coming up soon, 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. Pray for the upcoming VBS in July, that there will be enough staff members, and that students will come hungry to learn more of God's Word. Pray, too, for everyone on summer vacation ~ for travel mercies for those going on trips, for safety at home and nearby, for students to engage in meaningful activities to help them prepare for the next school year. Also pray for those needing summer jobs; that just the right opportunities will be available.
