Peachtree Community News
Veteran’s Day has come and gone. It was observed in many ceremonies throughout the area. Now Thanksgiving is upon us. It is fitting that these two holidays seem to merge. There are many things to give thanks for, but Freedom stands out as one of the most important. We owe a great debt of gratitude to the veterans who have served throughout the history of the nation to ensure and preserve freedom. Add the names of veterans that you know to your Thanksgiving prayer.

On Sunday Morning Pastor Whitehouse chose as his sermon topic, “How to Become a Gracious Giver”, based on the scripture from I Corinthians 16:2 and II Corinthians 8: 1-9.

The sanctuary flowers were given by Bob and Fran Bunn. The choir sang “Thanks Be to God” under the direction and accompanied by Jane May, Music Director. Beverly Wilson talked to the children about the First Thanksgiving Obsevance held at Plymouth Rock by the Pilgrims who came to America on the Mayflower.

On Sunday Evening the Community Thanksgiving service was held at Peachtree with several churches participating. Pastors participating were Chris Erlich, First Baptist; Lee Jeffries, Holly Gove; Jack Edge, Duke Memorial; Tony Futrell, Ephesus ; Elizabeth Polk, Gibson First Methodist; Eugene Whitehouse, Peachtree. The Peachtree Choir sang “I Sing the Mighty Power of God”. The speaker for the evening was Pastor Elizabrth Polk whose topic was “Harvest Time” based on the scripture passage from John 4:31-38. It was an inspiring message. The service was well attended.

Deacon Ministers for the month of November are Aubrey Farmer, David Griffin and Catherine Gupton. Wednesday Evening services have been cancelled to allow travel time for family gatherings on Thursday.

On Sunday Evening at 7:00 the International Mission Study will be held. Several other churches will be participating. The topic of the study is “Maldova, Russia”. The study will be led by Donald and Elizabeth Ledford, who have been on a mission trip to the area. Accompanying them will be a member of their church in Raleigh who is a native of Maldova. Following the study will be a social hour in the Fellowship Hall. A welcome is extended to all who may be interested.

Heartfelt sympathy is extended to the family of John Wayne Rich who passed away on Sunday Evening at Wake Medical Center. He had fought a long, valiant battle for the past four months. His funeral arrangements are incomplete at this writing.

Congratulations to Jan and Mark Barnes upon the birth of their first grandchild. Sadie Jo Barnes was born to Crystal and Doug Barnes on Nov. 7. She weighed 7 lbs and 2 oz and measured 19 inches. The Barnes are former residents of Peachtree Community who left to return to their home area in Ohio. They are sorely missed.

Also missed is the Trine Family who have just moved back to their home in the mountains at Franklin, N.C. after residing in the community for a period of time. They had recently joined the Peachtree Fellowship.

Aubrey and Kathy Farmer, along with their grandchildren Summer and Christopher, and daughter Sherry and Chris Huey, recently spent a week at Disney World in Orlando, Florida. They reported that they had a wonderful time.

Charlotte and Lewis Brothers of Morehead City have arrived to spend Thanksgiving with her mother, Lillie Belle Griffin. They will be joined on Thursday by Robert, Karen and Kirsten Griffin of Glocester, Va . There will be lots of cooking and eating going on.

The entire Savage Family will be traveling to Emerald Isle to celebrate Thanksgiving with Jackie Savage Wood at her home there. Some good food will be devoured there, too.

Melanie and Edmund White attended the 10th Class Reunion of the Southern Nash High School Graduating Class of 1997. Their party was held in Wilson.

Patricia Wood had Sunday lunch with her sister Annie Vince and her husband James Denton at their home in Spring Hope. Their daughter, Jamie and family joined them for an early Thanksgiving celebration.

Barbara Hardison spent last week in Minnisota visiting her sister, Ellen Attkisson, and her niece Len and Jim Nielsen. She has been sick with the sniffles ever since she arrived home on Thursday Evening.

Happy birthday to Patricia Wood on Nov. 23 and to Charles Booth on Nov. 25!

Remember in your prayers all of those who are lonely, hurting and sick. The known sick are Manola Bass, Jim Cannon, Kezia Griffin, Jimmie Ruth Bass, Daisy Hobgood, Susan Peoples and J.L. Wood. Remember also the men and women serving in the military to ensure the freedom that we enjoy.

Thought for the week: “Praise God from whom all blessings flow.”
