On a cold, rainy Palm Sunday Pastor Whitehouse greeted those Peachtree folks who had come to worship.  Sanctuary flowers were given by Patsy and Beth Baines in memory of their parents, Kezia Sykes and Willie Griffin and their brother, Spencer Griffin.

The Adult Choir, under the direction of Pastor Eugene Whitehouse, presented the Easter musical cantata.  It was titled “To the Risen King” and was created by Dennis and Nan Allen.  It portrayed the majesty of Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem and His triumphant resurrection.  Jerry Hobgood sang a solo part.  Josh Griffin provided the audio technical support.  Appreciation is expressed to the Pastor and choir members for their sacred presentation.  They are as follows:  Jamie Winslow, JoAnn Blankenship, Ann Browder, Fran Bunn, Marta Whitehouse, Barbara Hardison, Jamie Bunn, Robert Sykes, Linwood May, Jerry Hobgood, David Griffin, Lawrence Edwards and David May.

For the children’s sermon, Beverly Wilson showed several rocks of varying sizes.  She told them about Palm Sunday when Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a donkey.  His many followers created so much noise that the authorities told Jesus to make them be quiet.  He replied to them that if He did that, even the rocks would begin to shout the news about Him.  We who are His followers today should tell others about Him.

Sympathy is extended to the family of Stanley Hawley who passed away on March 19.  He was a prominent business man in Spring Hope and will be missed by his many friends.  His service was held at Samaria Baptist Church on March 21.

Sympathy also to the family of Ann Hicks Murray [widow of Philip Murray of the Ephesus Community] who passed away on March 20.  Her private burial took place in the Hicks Family Cemetery in Aventon on March 23.
Sympathy is extended to the family and friends of Emma Batchelor who passed away on March 22.  She resided at Batchelor’s Crossroads.  Her memorial service was held on March 26.

Jerry and Melba Hobgood recently vacationed at Myrtle Beach.  They attended a car show and enjoyed a round of golf with Lawrence and Susan Edwards who were vacationing at Murrell Inlet.

On Saturday JoAnn Blankenship attended the wedding of Emily White and Jason Wood, both of Greenville.  Emily is the sister of JoAnn’s son-in-law, Edmund White.  The wedding was held in the Elizabethan Garden at Manteo with the reception in the Garden Club House.

JoAnn’s daughter, Melanie and “Little Will”, attended church on Sunday.  She came especially to hear the cantata.

Happy birthday to David Story on 3/28; Brittany Wood, 3/29; Dylan Suggs 4/1; Ronnie Matthews, 4/3!

A “Good Friday” service will be held at 7:00 PM at Peachtree on Friday evening.  On Sunday morning a Community Easter Sunrise Service will be held at 7:00 AM at Spring Hope Memorial Gardens [Across from Spring Hope Funeral Home]. Next Sunday worship at Peachtree will be at 11:00 AM.  On this Resurrection Sunday Service Pastor Whitehouse’s sermon will be “Hope is Always Expanding”.  Plan now to attend one or all of the events which are Holy Week activities.
