PEACHTREE COMMUNITY NEWS

It was a sunny, but chilly morning as Peachtree folks gathered at the church for worship. Sanctuary flowers were given by Annie Belle Edwards. She gave the beautiful arrangement of spring flowers in memory of her husband, Harold, on the occasion of his ninetieth birthday.

The Adult Choir sang "His Strength is Perfect" under the direction of the pastor. Jane May played a beautiful piano arrangement of "I Shall Know Him".

Beverly Wilson's sermon for the children was about 'water 'and how important it is to us. She told the story about Jesus waiting at a well for a drink of water. A local woman came to draw up some water and he asked her to give Him a drink. Then He told her that He could give her some 'living water' and she would never thirst again. She was puzzled by His answer. Jesus was speaking about a thirst for God's Presence in her life. This Presence is also available to us today.

Pastor Whitehouse's sermon was titled, "Walking in Wisdom". It was a continuation of his sermons about David. This was based on scripture from 1 Samuel 18. David was befriended by King Saul's son, Jonathan. Saul even allowed David to marry his daughter.

James Shepherd received a standing ovation as he walked into the sanctuary on Sunday morning. He just had hip replacement surgery, the previous Thursday at Wake Med. {A miracle of modern surgery.}

The Men's Ministry met last Thursday night and had a good time of food, fellowship and worship.

Sympathy is extended to David and Brenda Johnson in the recent passing of his mother, Ruby Lee White Johnson. She resided with David and Brenda in their home at May's Cross Roads. She was buried at Holly Springs on March 4.

Jerry and Melba recently spent a few days at Myrtle Beach. Jerry attended a car show while Melba visited with her sister and her nieces, who were there attending a dance competition. Two of Melba's great-nieces won medals in the competitions.

Maxine and Norman Whitley had a busy week and week-end. They attended all of the wedding functions and festivities for her grandson, Joshua Barnes and his bride, Rachel Bissette. The bride is the daughter of Todd and Kim Bissette of Spring Hope. The wedding took place in a beautiful setting at the Rocky Springs Event Center in Greenville on Saturday. Joshua 's parents are Lisa and Johnny Barnes.

Our prayer concern list includes many who are sad, lonely and grieving. Many of our folks have had viruses that seem to linger on. These include Jerry and Sandra Breedlove, Cheryl and Doug Hayes, Mary Alice Davis, Fran Bunn. We are thankful for Robert Sykes' and James Shepherds' speedy recovery from surgery. Lillie Belle Griffin is reported not to be doing so well. Debbie King's time in the hospital was short.

The Faith Christian Ministry Store will have their spring items for sale on Friday. They will be open from 12 to 5 p.m.
