Saturday, May 14, about 80 people attended the Open House and celebration for Dane Humbyrd, who received a diploma from Bradleyville School at 7 p.m. that day. He also received a special award with all of his family in attendance, Doug Scott and all his family, Don Scott, Steve Scott and his family, Grandmas Sue Scott and Peggy Miller, Jeff Neighbors, Jeff and Jordan Humbyrd, Kevin and Sonya Hodges, Aaron Humbyrd and family, Grandpa and Grandma, Doyle and Frances Humbyrd, and Mom and Dad, Kim and Stan Humbyrd—a very special blessing for all of us. So glad you helped us celebrate this miracle from the Lord. We appreciate our church family who have been with us through 15 years.
Sunday began by standing to read Psalm 23. Again, we had several visitors. Prayer requests were given. Among those were the Joe Mason family, Tammy Jo, Noah Blair, Ivan Gunnels, client of Options Pregnancy Clinic, our nation, leaders and military. Stan Humbyrd prayed this prayer.
Happy anniversary was sung to Bill and Mary Lou Hodges. Congratulations for 45 years.
Pastor Neal prayed and discussed the current events concerning Israel today and read from Luke 5, Matthew’s call to discipleship. He was collecting taxes when Jesus said follow me. He left all, rose up and followed Him. Do we hear? Do we obey?
At 4 p.m. we had our annual Mother’s Day fish fry done by the men of the church. We had a large crowd with good food and good fellowship. We appreciate the men on behalf of all Mothers and others.
Tuesday at 7 p.m. we have our special prayer meeting. We need the Lord so much and do we even know it? I often wonder.
Wednesday at 7p.m. we will have Bible study from Genesis.
