On a chilly but beautiful spring morning, Peachtree folks gathered for worship at the church. Sanctuary flowers were given by Bob and Fran Bunn in honor of her father, Jake Robertson, and their grandsons, Georgio and JR. Other flowers were given by Dianne and Ricky Tucker. The offertory played by Jane May, was a beautiful rendering of "He's Been Faithful".
Beverly Wilson's sermon for the children was a recap of the "Bible School Camp" which had been held on Saturday. The theme was "Miriam and Joseph". The children had taken part in a variety of learning activities. She showed some of the scenes from that. They learned that you don't have to be a grown -up to do things to serve God and that He will watch over and take care of you. The camp had been a worthwhile experience and she thanked all of the adults who participated.
Pastor Whitehouse chose as his sermon title "God's Wonders to Be Remembered". It was based on a scripture passage from I Samuel 17. It was the story of David, as a shepherd boy, who faced the fierce Philistine giant, Goliath. David's strength to be victorious was found in his obedience to following his God every day.
Following the worship service the monthly business conference was held. Serving as moderator was Ricky Tucker. Clerk was Beth Baines and Treasurer was David Griffin.
We were surprised and delighted to have Robert Sykes at church. He had just had surgery on Tuesday, for a hip joint replacement. Ah, the marvels of modern medicine.
Sympathy is extended to the family of Patricia May Wood. Patricia passed away on Friday in Wilson. She had been a long time and faithful member of Peachtree Baptist Church. She sang in the choir. She was well known for her delicious desserts. She will be sorely missed by all. Her graveside service was held at Oakdale Cemetery in Spring Hope on Sunday evening. The service was conducted by the Rev. Eugene Whitehouse.
JoAnn Blankenship had lunch in Greenville on Friday with her friends, Judge Merle Renne and his wife, Miriam. They had been close friend when they all lived in Virginia Beach. They so enjoyed visiting and catching up on family and remembering the things they did as young adults. It was a fun event.
On Sunday Tommy Dalton attended a birthday party for his grandson, Rome Stump. It was Rome's first birthday and the party was held at his home in Garner. Other family members, from the community, attending were Nikki Scott and her children, Chloe and Zack, along with Stacy; Jeannie Bennett and her friend, John Braswell.
Mike and Karen Sykes of Kernersville spent Saturday night with Janice and Bobby Sykes. On Sunday they attended a special service at Raleigh Road Baptist Church in Wilson. They were charter members of that church.
Pastor Whitehouse visited Lillie Belle Griffin on Tuesday. He reported that she is out of the hospital and back at Crystal Bluffs. She is doing well. We have others on our prayer concern list: Jerry Breedlove, at Wake Med; others who are battling the flu symptoms.
Belated birthday wishes to Linwood May, whose birthday was March 4! Happy birthday to Charlie Vick, 3/13; Eugene Whitehouse, 3/14!
Remember to move your clocks forward on Saturday evening, as Daylight Savings Time ends at midnight!
