On Tuesday, March 8, our church was much involved in the funeral of Dorothy Siler. She was truly a pillar in our church. She served as Church Clerk for 35 years; as deacon’s wife, she did many things to fulfill those duties; as Sunday School teacher for many years and as Missionary Society President for several years. Dorothy’s health took her away, but she left us a great example of love and service for her Lord. Our prayers are with Bob and the children and grandchildren.
Prayer concerns shared were for Erin Crum, Dallee Sheppard, George Long, Roman Sidynik, Linda Mayberry, Fay Humbyrd and others. Josh Dalton prayed this prayer.
Happy birthday was sung to Debbie Hall.
Brad Siler prayed the offertory prayer as he and Stan Humbyrd received our Lord’s tithes and offerings.
