|On a bright and sunny, February morning, Peachtree folks gathered for worship and to observe its 204th anniversary. Gratitude for God’s presence and His many blessings through all those years was felt by those present. Pastor Whitehouse greeted those present. His sermon topic was “We Have------“, based on a scripture verse found In Colossians 2:9. He stated that Jesus is fully God and is fully man. As he expounded on this thought, he explained that only The Christ revealed in the scriptures can save the world. The church must preach the full gospel.
The Adult choir sang “Through It All”, under the direction of the pastor. Sanctuary flowers were given in honor of the Church’s 204th anniversary by Beverly Wilson.
For the children’s sermon Beverly Wilson told the children that an anniversary is like a birthday. But rather than having a cake for the church’s anniversary, she baked cookies. She decorated each one with the numeral “204” and a cross. She had one for every one present. Then she showed a power point that compared how people are like cookies.
Returning home last Tuesday from a trip were Ray and Joan Eason who had accompanied Bob and Fran Bunn on a trip to Covington, Kentucky. They were there to attend the Ruritan National Convention. They also attended many fun events around the city and across the river in Cincinnati, Ohio. Sounds like a wonderful trip.
Last week-end JoAnn Blankenship attended a bridal shower honoring Emily White, sister-in-law to Melanie. It was held in Ayden. The wedding is scheduled for early spring.
Fran Bunn’s mother, Hazel Robertson, celebrated her 90th birthday at her home on Friday. She thoroughly enjoyed the family party.
Barbara Hardison accompanied her niece, Beth Baldwin of Durham, to Hopewell, Virginia on Saturday to visit her sister, Dorothy, who is Beth’s mother.
Charlotte and Lewis Brothers of Morehead, spent last week-end with her mother, Lillie Belle Griffin. On Saturday they all attended a birthday party, held at Ephesus Church Fellowship Hall, for Lillie Belle’s cousin, Josephine Lamm, who was celebrating her 90th birthday.
Nikki Scott’s son, Zachary, fell while in the gym at school on Thursday. It gave everyone a scare, as he passed out. But everything checked out fine at the Emergency Room.
Prayer concerns are for the nation and all those serving to defend it. Also we remember the sad, lonely and sick in Peachtree Community and surrounding area. There are many who are recovering or suffering from chronic difficulties. Among these are; Pat Bass, Dianne Tucker, Barbara Fisk, Niki Cannon, Carl Rich, Alvin Edwards, Catherine Gupton, Kathy Farmer, Allen Macquinne, Robnert Medlin, Jean Bunn, Lillie Belle Griffin, Patiricia Wood, Frances Blanchard, Alvin Sykes, Jimmie Ruth Bass, Frances Blanchard, Ruth Wood. Pray for Peachtree Church as it continues in its mission here.
Happy birthday to David Griffin, 2/7; Frank Bunn and Jason Edwards, 2/8; Ricky Tucker, 2/9; Debbie May, 2/10 !!
