Peachtree folks gathered for worship on a beautiful spring morning. Sanctuary flowers were given by Jerry and Melba Hobgood in memory of Patricia Wood and Lillie Belle Griffin. They were two beloved church members who recently passed away. The Adult Choir sang "He Hideth My Soul" under the direction of the pastor. The offertory by Jane May was "Jehu, Joy of Man's Desiring."
Beverly Wilson's sermon to the children was about 'crying.' She said that it's okay to cry when we are sad. There are several recorded instances in the Bible of Jesus' crying. One was when his friend, Lazarus died. Another time he cried because people were missing out on what God wanted for them. We know that Jesus loves us and is with us in our sad times.
Pastor Whitehouse's sermon title was "Desperate Times Rewrite Our Priorities." It was based on scripture passage I Samuel 19-20. He spoke of David and the times that King Saul tried to kill him. David was protected by God.
