Peachtree Community News
The winter “blahs” have set in, but the warmth of fellowship was felt by those attending Peachtree Church on Sunday Morning. The services began with Sunday School and the lesson was based on Psalm 32, written by King David as he celebrated receiving forgiveness for his sins. The altar flowers were given by Jane May in memory of her late husband, Perry. Pastor Whitehouse chose as his sermon topic “Knowing, Growing and Sharing the Power of God”. It was based on the scripture verse from Mark 12:24. The choir selection was “There is a Name I Love to Hear” accompanied and directed by Jane May, Music Director. The children’s sermon by Beverly Wilson was to illustrate that though people are all different they all need to have God’s love inside them. She used a white and a brown hen egg, to show that though their shells were different, they were just alike inside. The regular monthly business conference was held following the worship hour. David Griffin presided as Moderator. Deacon ministers for the month of January are Linwood May, Bill Nelson and Norman Whitley.

Team Kids will resume their weekly meetings on Wednesday Night following Family Night supper. The Youth will not meet due to their need to study for exams being given this week.

On Tuesday Lillie Belle Griffin returned from her holiday visit with her son, Robert, and his family who live in Gloucester, Virginia. On Thursday her daughter, Charlotte and Lewis Brothers came to visit her for a few days. On Saturday afternoon and evening they all joined Lillie Belle’s sisters and brothers for a belated Christmas celebration at the Edwards homeplace.

Marta Whitehouse met her son , Al and his wife , Mary, at RDU on Wednesday Night as they returned home from a mission trip to the Ukraine. It is hoped that more reports from that trip will be forthcoming.

Brooks Wood, son of Glenn and Arlyn Wood, was home this past week on furlough from his duties with the United States Navy. He will soon be reporting to the Naval Base in Norfolk, Virginia for his next assignment.

On Tuesday Evening JoAnn Blankenship and Niki Cannon met Melanie and Edmund White and Jay Pace in Wilson for dinner at Applebees.

Please remember all of these in prayer. Always keep the men and women in the military who are serving in harm’s way, in your thoughts and prayers.

Oops! Frances Blanchard celebrated her birthday on Jan. 7, not her son, Richard [his day is Sept. 27] Happy belated birthday to Beth Baines on Jan. 13. Happy birthday to Vic Trine, Jan. 23; Barbara Blanchard, Jan. 25; Milton Vick, Jan 26.

Thought for the week: “Guard your thoughts as you would your wallet.”
